The Need For Tin Launches 1,000 Ships

Always More to Write.

The golden toad is one of many amphibian species to recently become extinct.

At least one of the primates cares.

Wind Turbines Kill Bats Without Impact

Hoary bat
Aug. 25, 2008 -- Researchers have found the cause behind mysterious bat deaths near wind turbines, in which many bat carcasses appeared uninjured.

The explanation to this puzzle is that the bats' lungs effectively blow up from the rapid pressure drop that occurs as air flows over the turbine blades.

This could be a problem for environmentalists.

Evidence suggests Mars was once wetter than it is now

James Head of Brown University and his team examined high-resolution images of the Newton Crater and its gullies taken by orbiting spacecraft and found evidence of features that suggested glaciers once covered the crater floor about 10 million to 20 million years ago.

In one of my previous blogs I wrote about the studies that show how Mark used Homer's Odyssey, and Iliad as source material for the gospels. The parallels are compelling and extensive and help to explain the inconsistencies in The New Testament. Now I find that another line of scholars have determined that the Odyssey and the Iliad were Celtic tales of events that took place in England and the Atlantic ocean. In his book, "Where Troy Once Stood", Iman Wilkens traces the locations and names of cities, rivers, and ports to Great Brittan.

Wilkens argues that Troy was located in England on the Gog Magog Downs in Cambridgeshire. He believes that Celts living there were attacked around 1200 BC by fellow Celts from the continent to battle over access to the tin mines in Cornwall as tin was a very important component for the production of bronze.

According to Wilkens, St Michael's Mount is the site of Scylla and Charybdis.
Is it a coincidence that I just happened to pick, Clive Cussler's, "Trojan Odyssey", from a bookshelf in the apartment community room library? If you have been following my blog from the beginning, you can follow the thread that strings together, coincidences, like pearls on a necklace of enlightenment. I love it.
