In the Beginning: Bibles Before the Year 1000 The Bible has been called the best-selling book of all time, though the term itself comes from biblia, Greek for a collection of books. The Bible developed gradually, over many centuries, as the result of cultural interaction and exchange among many different societies. Over time, some texts were accepted as part of the canon of belief, while others were excluded as apocryphal and heretical. In the Beginning: Bibles Before the Year 1000 tells the story of this formative period. From fragile fragments of papyrus and humble early parchment codices to resplendent illuminated manuscripts, In the Beginning presents the physical evidence of the earliest versions of both Bible and book. The quest to discover ancient biblical manuscripts The Christian concept of the Bible was established long before many of its earliest materials were discovered in the Middle East. Exciting finds included the Cairo Genizah, associated with the thousand-year-old Ben Ezra Synagogue.

Binder Clips into Office Weapons Wow, if you thought working at your white-collared job, sitting in your well equipped air-conditioned office, thinking that this is probably one of the safest place to be… you may just want to think twice about that. The office is a jungle. Beside having to watch your back against office colleagues who may be wolf in sheep’s clothes, you may just have to watch out for those seemingly utilitarian office supplies, because in conjuncture with other seemingly innocent office supplies, they may just result to be one of the deadliest office weapon yet. Take a few binder clips of varying sizes, turn them upside down, and clip the smaller binder clips inside the larger clips. It should look like this when the larger binder clips have clipped the smaller ones. Remove all the binder clip handles. Add another 2 larger binder clips on top of the smaller edge with a rubber band in between. Take out the binder clips handle again. Reverse wrap the larger rubber band. stumbleupon

Coexist? « Wiser Time I don’t know what’s sadder about this – that your depictions of the conflicts between these groups is so misguided, or that you would, as a Christian, take the position that the peaceful coexistence of religions is somehow a bad idea. To begin with: C is bound by the Koran to honor the religions of the book – at the very least, T and X. Some don’t, but most do; you’re far better off being T or X than atheist in most muslim nations. The conflict between X and C is not a religious conflict; it is a political conflict over the state of Israel. O posits, I think accurately, that most members of C, as well as T, X, and E, are probably decent people, or at the least, that their decency or lack thereof is not a product of their affiliation to that group. Your description of E makes me feel positively ill. O does not invariably support C over X. X’s existence is threatened by conflict with some members of C, yes. You don’t think T poses as much of a threat as any of the others? Way to go, T.

The secret world of Disneyland - travel tips and articles Disneyland may look like a straightforward theme park.
