Evidence Found of Life on Mars... in Eqypt?

Researchers at Oregon State University have found possible evidence of life on Mars in a meteorite discovered in Egypt 95 years ago.

They have found a series of microscopic tunnels within the meteorite which closely resemble the tracks left in Earth rocks by hungry bacteria. The tunnels appear to have been formed approximately 600 million years ago, the same time when the rock was exposed to water.

Holocaust History Project

I saw a post at evolgen about the Holocaust History Project, and the lengths to which skeptics of the Holocaust ( or perhaps just anti-semites) will go to silence them.

On March 6, an arsonist set fire to the Holocaust History Project's facility, causing extensive damage to their offfices (read the Press Release). It isn't the first time someone has tried to stop their message:

It was just the latest in a series of attacks with the apparent intent to silence THHP. For the past 18 months, the THHP website has been under an unprecedented Distributed Denial of Service attack. This cyber attack began on September 11, 2004, and is being carried out by a specially modified version of the MyDoom computer worm, programmed to target the THHP web server.

The Holocaust History Project is a free archive of documents, photographs, recordings, and essays regarding the Holocaust, including direct refutation of Holocaust-denial. It serves as an excellent educational resource.

I'm posting this not only because it's an interesting story, but also to render moot the attempts to stop their message. If I can help spread the word, it creates the opposite outcome of that desired by the arsonists.

Impeach the Fool: April Fool's Party

The anti-Bush web is full of proposals to raise the issue of impeachment on April 1st ths year. I also heard a few voices suggesting April Fool's Day parties to stage letter-writing campaigns to members of Congress.

I've created a new page on Squidoo to provide support for this effort: Impeach the Fool.

If you've had enough of George W. Bush, here's one way to help send him packing.
