Why do UNC students put rulers on their foreheads?

*The author Edgar Rice Burroughs used to own a ranch near Hollywood in
southern California, where he wrote his famous stories about Tarzan
of the Apes. In 1928, the town surrounding his ranch was officially
incorporated and chose for itself the name Burroughs had given his
ranch: Tarzana.

Burroughs was a prolific author with a profoundly creative
imagination. His first published story, originally titled "Dejah
Thoris, Princess of Mars," was published as "Under The Moons of Mars"
in 1912. His first Tarzan story appeared in October the same year.

In addition to 26 books about Tarzan and numerous science fiction
stories set on Mars or Venus, Burroughs also wrote caveman stories,
westerns, horror stories, and others that are harder to classify.
The town of Tarzana is a fitting memorial to this man who so enriched
American popular literature.

The Remarkable Story of Roger DeHart:
A New Documentary about the
"Icons of Evolution"

In the early twentieth century -- during the Scopes
Trial, for instance -- evolution was the new theory
challenging settled opinions about divine creation.
Now, however, said Bill Rice on National Public
Radio, it's evolution that "is being questioned."
Darwinian evolution has become the established view --
and those who want to consider alternatives to
Darwinism have become the innovative thinkers
challenging the status quo.

Nowhere is this stunning role reversal better
portrayed than in the new documentary, "Icons of
Evolution." "Icons" tells the story of Roger DeHart,
a high school biology teacher in Washington state who
wanted to tell his students about evidence that casts
doubt on aspects of Darwinian evolution. The evidence
that DeHart hoped to discuss wasn't fringe stuff. It
was the material already published in scientific
literature. For example, biology textbooks have long
featured drawings of animal embryos, purporting to
show similarity. This was widely taken as proof that
the species in question shared a common evolutionary

But the drawings are seriously inaccurate, omitting
many details and falsely suggesting similarities
among embryos. Stephen Gould, the noted Harvard
paleontologist, called the drawings "scientific
fraud," and he said that we should "be ashamed and
astonished by the century of [their] mindless
recycling" in textbooks.

It sounds like something students ought to know
about, yet, when DeHart wanted to bring Gould's
article about the fraudulent drawings into his
classroom, the school administration forbade him from
doing so. He wasn't even allowed to discuss Gould's
article or say anything questioning the drawings in
the school district's officially mandated textbook.

But the censorship didn't stop there. DeHart wanted
to tell his students about the "Cambrian Explosion,"
the sudden appearance of the major groups of animals
about 550 million years ago. The Cambrian Explosion
has long been a puzzle for Darwinian evolution. Again
DeHart was forbidden to bring in any supplementary
materials offering an alternative explanation. It
didn't matter that the issue is part of ongoing
scientific debate. DeHart's students weren't allowed
to see or hear anything challenging textbook

All this, and more, is retold by the participants
themselves in the documentary "Icons of Evolution."
You'll hear from Chinese paleontologists who worked
with the Cambrian Explosion fossils and believe that
Darwinian evolution fails to explain the data. You'll
hear from Roger DeHart himself about his experiences
and also from his school's administrators, telling
why they wouldn't let him depart from the established

It's an amazing, even shocking, story -- shocking,
that is, because most people assume that science
ought to be a search for the truth about the natural
world. While we may be cynical about advertising, or
politics, or the media, science is still supposed to
be above it all, pursuing what is really true.

The "Icons" documentary will shake you up. Science
teaching today has become indoctrination, but the
good news is we can still do something about it. Call
BreakPoint (1-800-995-8777) and order your copy
of "Icons of Evolution." You'll learn how and why to
make the case.

7-Eleven Drops Citgo As Gas Supplier
AP Business Writer

DALLAS — 7-Eleven Inc. dropped Venezuela-owned Citgo as its gasoline supplier after more than 20 years as part of a previously announced plan by the convenience store operator to launch its own brand of fuel.

7-Eleven officials said Wednesday that the decision was partly motivated by politics.

Citgo Petroleum Corp. is a Houston-based subsidiary of Venezuela's state-run oil company and 7-Eleven is worried that anti-American comments made by Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez might prompt motorists to fill-up elsewhere.

Hugo Chavez

Chavez has called President George W. Bush the devil and an alcoholic. The U.S. government has warned that Chavez is a destabilizing force in Latin America.

"Regardless of politics, we sympathize with many Americans' concern over derogatory comments about our country and its leadership recently made by Venezuela's president," said 7-Eleven spokeswoman Margaret Chabris.

"Certainly Chavez's position and statements over the past year or so didn't tempt us to stay with Citgo," she added.

Instead, 7-Eleven, which sells gasoline at 2,100 of its 5,300 U.S. stores, will now purchase fuel from several distributors, including Tower Energy Group of Torrance, Calif., Sinclair Oil of Salt Lake City, and Houston-based Frontier Oil Corp.

Chabris said 7-Eleven's decision to sell its own brand was based on many factors, including Citgo's decision this summer to stop supplying stations in parts of Texas and other states to focus on retailers closer to its refineries in Corpus Christi, Lake Charles, La., and Lemont, Ill.

But 7-Eleven had been considering creating its own brand of fuel since at least early last year, and some analysts suggested 7-Eleven may now be hyping the political angle as a way to curry favor with U.S. consumers.

"This has nothing to do with Chavez," said Oil Price Information Service director Tom Kloza. "They (7-Eleven) just didn't want to be tied to one supplier."

Kloza said all 7-Eleven did was seek out suppliers who could sell it the cheapest fuel and "that was not Citgo."

Citgo spokesman Fernando Garay declined to comment on whether Chavez's comments had a bearing on 7-Eleven's change in suppliers. He said the break was "a mutual agreement of the two companies."

Garay said 7-Eleven was a "significant" part of Citgo's retail presence in Texas and Florida. "It was a valued relationship," he said.

In July, Citgo decided to stop distributing gasoline to 1,800 independently owned U.S. stations because it was a lackluster segment of its business.

In order to meet service contracts at 13,100 Citgo-branded stations across the U.S., Citgo had to purchase 130,000 barrels a day from third parties — a less profitable business model than selling gasoline directly from its refineries.

Citgo was founded in 1910 as the Cities Service Co., according to the company Web site, and 7-Eleven's predecessor, The Southland Corp., bought Citgo from Occidental Petroleum in 1983.

7-Eleven sold half its interest in Citgo in 1986 and the remaining stake in 1990 to Petroleos de Venezuela SA.

Looks like ole Hugo got "Bush-whacked" ....... part one.

Verse of the Day

* * * Four Important Things To KNOW: #1) For ALL (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) have sinned & fall short of the glory of God. #2) For the wages of above (see #1) are DEATH (Hell, eternal separation from God, & damnation) but the Gift (free & at no charge to you) of God (Creator, Jehovah, & Trinity) is Eternal Life (Heaven) through (in union with) Jesus Christ (God, Lord, 2nd Person of The Trinity, Messiah, Prince of Peace & Savior of the World). #3) For God so greatly loved & dearly prized the world (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) that He even gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, that whosoever (anyone, anywhere, anytime - while still living) believes (trust in, relies on, clings to, depends completely on) Him shall have eternal (everlasting) life (heaven). #4) Jesus said: "I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH, & THE LIFE. No one (male/female - American, Muslim, Jew, Catholic, Hindu, Buddhist, Asian, Presbyterian, European, Baptist, Brazilian, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc. ) comes (arrives) to the Father (with GOD in Heaven) EXCEPT BY (through) ME (no other name). *** This wonderful loving GOD gives you the choice - - - (Rev. 3:20) {Please note that church membership, baptism, doing good things, etc. are not requirements for becoming a Christian - however they are great afterwards!!!} *** Jesus said, "Wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction (Hell, damnation, eternal punishment), and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life (Heaven, eternal happiness, forever with God), and only a few find it.

But these are written so that you may
believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the
Son of God, and that by believing in
Him you will have life. Jn 20:31

Seek the Lord while He may be found;
call on Him while He is near. Let the
wicked forsake his way and the evil
man his thoughts. Let him turn to the
Lord, and He will have mercy on him,
and to our God, for He will freely
pardon. "For My thoughts are not
your thoughts, neither are your ways
My ways," declares the Lord. "As the
heavens are higher than the earth, so
are My ways higher than your ways
and My thoughts than your thoughts.
As the rain and the snow come down
from heaven, and do not return to it
without watering the earth and making
it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed
for the sower and bread for the eater,
so is My word that goes out from My
mouth: It will not return to Me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire and
achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
You will go out in joy and be led forth
in peace; the mountains and hills will
burst into song before you, and all the
trees of the field will clap their hands.
Instead of the thornbush will grow the
pine tree, and instead of briers the myrtle
will grow. This will be for the Lord's
renown, for an everlasting sign, which
will not be destroyed." Is 55

O Lord, you have searched me and you
know me. You know when I sit and when
I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying
down; you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue you know
it completely, O Lord. You hem me in -
behind and before; you have laid your
hand upon me. Such knowledge is too
wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.

Where can I go from your Spirit? Where
can I flee from your presence? If I go up
to the heavens, you are there; if I make
my bed in the depths, you are there.

If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.

If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide
me and the light become night around
me," even the darkness will not be dark
to you; the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you. For you
created my inmost being; you knit me
together in my mother's womb. I praise
you because I am fearfully and wonderfully
made; your works are wonderful, I know
that full well. My frame was not hidden
from you when I was made in the secret
place. When I was woven together in the
depths of the earth, your eyes saw my
unformed body. All the days ordained
for me were written in your book before
one of them came to be.

How precious to me are your thoughts,
O God! How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them, they would
outnumber the grains of sand. When
I awake, I am still with you. Search me,
O God, and know my heart; test me
and know my anxious thoughts. See
if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.
Ps 139

But indeed for this purpose I have raised you up,
that I may show My power in you, and that My
Name may be declared in all the earth. Ex 9:16

When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of Glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small:
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.
- - Isaac Watts
