Scientists say that a star goes super nova in our galaxy roughly every 26 years. They can see how many have gone super nova by the remnants left. They have counted the past super novas and have found there have been approximately 250 in the life of our galaxy. 26 years x 250 = 6,500 years - This is the approximate age of the Earth as written in the Bible.

I think this is a must watch video for those of us that have been taught about the Crusades.  I don't think it's taught in schools today.  We were never taught that the Crusades started due to a begging and pleading of Christians for help against Muslims invading and conquering their Christian countries.   Instead we were always taught that not only was it the Crusaders that were the invading army but they started the war to force everyone to be Christian, which is ridiculous when we know that Spain, France and Italy have always been Catholic countries.  

Jihads had already taken over much of Europe, including a vast amount of Spain, and it wasn't until they reached Italy that the Crusades began in order to free the Christians across Europe.

Today in Syria it's happening exactly the same.  Jihads are invading and conquering.  What are the West, The Christians, doing?  We are fighting a defensive war over there to drive back the Jihads and free the people, just as the Crusaders did, only this time we are using bombs.  Bear in mind also, that we too are killing innocent civilians, just as the Crusaders are purported to have done.

Is it any less barbaric to bomb than it was to take up the sword?  Or is our being over in Syria justified?

It's a tricky one in that we as a human race should not stand back and watch other humans suffer the way those poor people are in Syria.

At the same time who are we to tell another country what to do?

Or who are we to tell another country what regime to embrace or follow?

This is the quandry.  Do you go in to help the people when they ask for us to only to have history record you as being an invading, conquering army, or do you stay out of it and allow mass slaughter of nations by Islam?

No1)  I personally feel that however barbaric it was at the time the Crusades saved far more lives than they took.  They did succeed in driving Islam back.  Who knows what Europe would be like (including us) now if the Crusades hadn't have happened.

No2)  I said at the time, we needed to get into Syria and put boots on the ground and drive them out before they grew to big.  Everyone I spoke to disputed this.  But because we didn't do that, we now have Europe swamped with Islamists, thousands of Christians slaughtered, along with terroism on our streets.

I'll tell you something else.  When the refugees were coming over, which they will do again this summer, in boats, when they found a Christian Arab in the boat they were throwing them overboard.  That is a fact.

When this country grants entrance to those coming over to claim asylum they are granting it to Muslims and turning Christians away.  The Muslims have great stories of how they will be killed by their families or the regime if they go back, whereas Christians can only say that they will be killed because they are Christian which our government doesn't accept.

If you are a Jew, even not a practicing Jew but an hereditary Jew, as I am, you are welcomed, with no question, into Israel.  We, who are supposed to be Christian and believe we have Christian values turn away Christians.  It's bloody disgusting.  Every religion looks after their own, except us.
