ONE WORLD RELIGION

The Chief Rabbi of Israel, Yona Metzger, has called for the
creation of a world body with representatives from the major
religious groups. Rabbi Metzger was addressing the "International
Congress of Imams and Rabbis for Peace" in Seville, Spain. He
called for the formation of a "United Nations of religious
groups." The Imams and Rabbis at this conference say the world is
in crisis and it is time they acted to restore justice, respect
and peace.

THE BEAST

On June 6th, 2006, (which is 06/06/06) a major movie is to be
released called "The Beast." It will be distributed by VIVID
films. Not only is the movie to be released on 06/06/06, but it
was carefully timed so that it would take exactly 666 days to
make the movie. The film is about a Christian high school student
named Danielle, whose father, a biblical scholar, discovers proof
positive that Jesus Christ never existed. The plot centres around
the abduction of this scholar by fanatical Christians to keep
people from finding out that Jesus Christ did not exist.

WAGES OF SIN

Homosexuality has become so influential in Britain that a new
saying has developed in the business world. That saying is
– "It helps to be gay if you want more pay." The average
British homosexual man earns 10,000 pounds more per year than the
population at large, and the average lesbian earns 6000 pounds
more per year than a normal heterosexual woman.

RFID VERICHIP IN HOSPITALS

Elizabeth, New Jersey-based Trinitas Hospital will become the
third hospital to scan patients implanted with radio frequency
identification chips. The 531-bed hospital plans to test the
VeriChip system in its two emergency departments. The technology
can read RFID chips that have been implanted underneath a
patient’s skin, between the elbow and shoulder. Each
VeriChip contains a 16-digit identification number assigned by
Applied Digital. Trinitas will map patient’s VeriChip
numbers to their ID numbers in its clinical databases. Clinicians
then can access patient data quickly by passing a scanning device
over their arm. Earlier this year, Hackensack (N.J.) University
Medical Center and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston,
began using the technology. Three other unnamed health care
organizations also plan to implement it, according to vendor
executives.

MORE PAPAL BULL

Pope Benedict has stated that Jesus Christ is not coming back,
but another who has his traits will be appearing. The quote
appears in a publication produced by the Pontifical Biblical
Commission entitled, "The Jewish People and their Sacred
Scriptures in the Christian Bible
." Ratsinger says, "Jewish
messianic expectation is not in vain. It can become for us
Christians a powerful stimulant to keep alive the eschatological
dimension of our faith. Like them, we too live in expectation.
The difference is that for us, the One who is to come will have
the traits of the Jesus who has already come and is already
present and active among us.

MOBILE PHONE TRACKING

Your mobile phone is a beacon – a radio transmitter in a
box. Therefore it is possible to trace the signal and work out
where it is. There are now several web companies who will track
your friend’s and family’s phones for you, so you
always know where they are. As well as checking where a certain
phone is right now, you can run scheduled look-ups, or snail
trails, to record the phone’s movements during the day, and
produce a report for you to peruse at your pleasure.
