Alchemy, the forerunner of chemistry and modern science, is a combination of mysticism and experimental procedures. Alchemy's primary goals are to discover the "Philosopher's Stone", or the means to create gold (transmutation), and the Elixir of Life that will grant immortality. For centuries, alchemists pursued these idealistic dreams, but to little avail. In the process however, alchemists developed theories about matter, metals, minerals, and even light. Their documentation of laboratory procedures and chemical discoveries created the basis of contemporary science, in particular chemistry. Scientists, as well as practitioners of the occult and dark magic, fall under the ancient title of "alchemists." Only in more recent history have these two groups been differentiated.
Abortion is the induced or spontaneous termination of a pregnancy. The legalization of elective abortions has become a contentious issue around the world with many countries adopting abortion-on-demand legislation. Although most of the world's nations limit abortion after 20 weeks, the United States, North Korea, China, and Canada allow abortions for any reason (such as sex selection) throughout the nine months of pregnancy. After the U.S. Supreme Court legalized the activity in 1973, it is estimated that close to 1 out of every 3 babies conceived in the United States has been killed. About 1,500,000 abortions have been performed per year in the US, totaling over 50 million children. Perhaps one of the most devastating consequences of philosophical naturalism is the resulting devaluation of human life. From the evolutionary stance, each of these unborn babies is simply another animal of no significant value. But the Bible clearly teaches that humans are different from all other forms of life: made in the image of God. ...Full article
Tree frogs are any of the species of frogs belonging to the taxonomic family Hylidae. As their name indicates, they are perfectly designed for arboreal life. They have slender lightweight bodies and long toes with sticky toe pads that help them climb in trees and cling to branches and leaves. They also have extra cartilage between the last two bones of each toe that makes their toes more flexible. Tree frogs come in a variety of sizes and colors. Most species live in trees, but there are some species that spend most of their time on the ground and some species that spend most of their time in the water.
Mount St. Helens is an active volcano in Washington State, USA (the most active in the Cascade Range). The most recent series of eruptions began in 1980 when a large landslide and powerful explosive eruption created a large crater, and ended 6 years later after more than a dozen extrusions of lava built a dome in the crater. Larger, longer lasting eruptions have occurred in the volcano's past and are likely to occur in the future. Although the volcano seems to have returned to a period of quiet, scientists closely monitor Mount St. Helens for signs of renewed activity.
