For centuries Hindis and Buddhists, among other religious groups, have discussed the concept of an energy shield surrounding the human body. The energy shield is the energy emitted by the human body during action or thought, and surrounds the physical self in an electromagnetic field. Perhaps in some religions, it can be thought of as the soul or the holy spirit that exists in everyone. I hypothesize that humans, like neurons, have loci focused in their brains (as with the cell body of a neuron). I estimate these loci branch out into circumfrential, cylindrical "tails" (i.e. the energy shield) that, like synapses, are capable of transmitting thoughts as energy.
When a person is charged with a crime and brought to trial, they have certain rights. They can plead the fifth (meaning they have the right against self-incrimination), you can’t be charged for the same crime twice (otherwise known as double jeopardy) and in certain states you are protected from having to testify against your spouse. The problem being addressed is what constitutes as a spouse?
In an artilce, I read that at the University of Kansas, a new course is being offered titled "Special Topics in Religion: Intelligent Design, Creationism and other Religious Mythologies." This is an amazing step of a class that I find as a brave venture in a world that is so uninviting. There will definitely be complaints. The man that created the class, Paul Mirecki, has already been called a laughingstock.
Last month, a 26 year-old preschool teacher by the name of Michelle McCusker was fired from her job. The reason? She was pregnant, unmarried, and teaching at a Catholic School.
The IRS is currently investigating All Saints Episcopal Church, where a reverend delivered a sermon criticizing President Bush’s war policies two days before the 2004 election; the church risks losing its tax exempt- status because the IRS says the sermon may have constituted political campaigning from the pulpit. The federal tax code prohibits tax-exempt organizations, including churches, from intervening in political campaigns and elections. But people are questioning why the IRS is suddenly investigating a church that made anti-Bush remarks, and ignoring all the Christian evangelical groups and churches that actually told their parishioners to vote for Bush. There is an article in the Los Angeles Times summarizing the situation.
