Creepy Images From An Abandoned Bible Theme Park [BuzzFeed] In Waterbury, Conn., there's an abandoned park called Holy Land U.S.A. It's a Bible theme park that was built in 1940. But it's been closed since 1984. It was once the largest tourist attraction in Connecticut.

Los Angeles Catholic Church Hid Priests' Child Abuse Newly disclosed internal documents have confirmed the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles deliberately hid evidence of child molestation for more than a decade. The now-retired archbishop, Cardinal Roger M. Mahony, and other high-ranking clergy officials made extensive efforts to transfer abusive priests out of state to avoid prosecution and to stop them from confessing to therapists who would have been forced to inform police. The church reached a $660 million settlement with 500 victims in 2007, the largest of any Roman Catholic diocese. In reaching the deal, it spared top church officials from having to testify in court. A Los Angeles judge is set to rule next month on whether two church officials will face new depositions in a civil lawsuit over the abuse.

In Study 1, death reminders had no effect among Atheists, but enhanced Christians' religiosity, belief in a higher power, and belief in God/Jesus and enhanced denial of Allah and Buddha. Similarly, death reminders increased Muslims' religiosity and belief in a higher power, and led to greater belief in Allah and denial of God/Jesus and Buddha (Study 2). Finally, in Study 3, death reminders motivated Agnostics to increase their religiosity, belief in a higher power, and their faith in God/Jesus, Buddha, and Allah. The studies tested three potential theoretical explanations and were consistent with terror management theory's worldview defense hypothesis. Theoretical implications are discussed.

some of the problems with "health journalism"

In 1989 the world voted a global ban on the ivory trade. Since then, tens of millions of dollars in illegal ivory has been smuggled and hundreds of thousands of elephants have been slaughtered. No single ivory trafficking kingpin has ever been identified and sent to prison. Instead, the international community has blamed the illegal ivory trade entirely on China with little or no analysis. They have ignored another major driver of the ivory trade: that driver is RELIGION. The most common use of high-end ivory globally is the carving of religious icons. Across all religions, the faithful attempt to manifest their devotion through these carvings.

Stone Age hunters liked their carbs
Analyses of Stone Age settlements reveal that the hunters were healthy and would gladly eat anything they could get their hands on, including carbohydrates – contrary to the modern definition of the Paleolithic, or Stone Age diet.
The Stone Age hunter's food contained large amounts of protein from fish, lean mean, herbs and coarse vegetables and has formed the basis of one of today's hottest health trends: the paleo diet.
The modern version of the Stone Age diet excludes foods rich in carbohydrates. This exclusion of carbs is based on the idea that Stone Age hunters didn't have access to bread, rice or pasta.
But is it true that Stone Age hunters and gatherers didn't eat any carbohydrates at all?
Sabine Karg, an external lecturer at Copenhagen University's Saxo Institute, specialises in archaeobotany. She says that Stone Age hunters, unlike many followers of the modern Stone Age diet, joyfully munched away at carbs when the opportunity presented itself.
"Carbohydrates have been part of their diet. In flooded settlements from the Palaeolithic and Mesolithic periods, traces of roots and seeds from various aquatic plants and wild grasses have been found."
Stone Age hunters were not picky
The modern version of the paleo diet forsakes everything that's reminiscent of bread, rice, pasta, legumes and milk.
But according to Karg, the Stone Age hunters were nowhere near that fastidious about their food.
Easily digestible food with high energy content is a welcome feature if you have to make the effort of finding the next meal yourself, and traces of foods containing carbohydrates have also been found in the old settlements.
"What archaeologists find in their excavations is dependent on both the preservation conditions and how the people had prepared their food," says Karg. "For us, the conditions are particularly good in flooded settlements where organic material is well preserved, or in burn layers or fireplaces where we can find charred plant residues," she says, giving an example:
"We have found seeds of wild grasses, aquatic plants and root vegetables, all of which have formed part of the hunters' diet. Especially after an unsuccessful hunt, they had to go out and dig up roots."
