talking his nation security and view on "Extremist Muslims live in Australia."
Before I blog it I did some research and found the following. I just wanted to say here that...in this world we do have Good Americans and bad Americans, good Christians and bad Christians, good monks and bad monks, good Shans and bad Shans and ....so does good Muslim and bad Muslim!! We can't say...... "The whole Apples basket is bad because of an Apple was rotten in the basket."
For Prime Minister Howard, yes he was a leader of Australia. He has the duty to protect his people. He is the head of the country, he has the right to taking care of the Australia's Business in good way. I think who lives in Australia should obey the Australia's Law. I do feel that his old statement is fair and clear.
In Thailand we must respect to the King. I live in Thailand so I do obey the Thai laws. There might be some who did not vote for Obama but we understand that he is our President so I do understand his time of Presidency in our great nation. Bottom line is you can't go your own way. You might not agree with his way of leading the country but for 4 year we must support him. After 4 years you are free to vote for who ever you want to.
This is what I see......"If you are a guest of some one house you must act like a good guest"!!(Should not be the one who even not flash the toilet bowl ")...If you are a daughter in law you act like a daughter in law" no problema!! got it???
View on "The apple basket!"!!! Yes...we do need to understand that because of one person or a small group of idiot or wrong behavior,
you can't judge on the whole basket is bad too!
I have seen some people from Muslim Countries in United States, honestly they are so thankful to be in America! Let me tell you..... if United States of America will open the door for Burmese people, there will be long line of Burmese people like Moses leading the Israeli to the promise land!!
We American might be not perfect but I am so grateful to be an American! I love you America!!
Lets be Fair and Respect!! OK....please enjoy the rest.........

Debunking email hoaxes and exposing Internet scams since 2003!
Summary:Email forward claims that former Australian Prime Minister John Howard told the media that immigrants should adapt to Australian culture, language and beliefs or leave the country. It also claims that Howard told Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law that they should get out of Australia (Full commentary below).
Status:Contains elements of truth, but is highly misleading and inaccurate.
Helen Said: The email I received was the same as following;
'Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia , as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks.
Separately, Howard angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying he supported spy agencies monitoring the nation's mosques. Quote: 'IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians.
''This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom."
''We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society . Learn the language!
''Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.
''We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.
''This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom,
'THE RIGHT TO LEAVE'.
''If you aren't happy here then LEAVE. We didn't force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.
'Maybe if we circulate this amongst ourselves, American and Canadian citizens will find the backbone to start speaking and voicing the same truths.'
Commentary:According to this email forward, former Australian Prime Minister John Howard informed Muslims living in Australia in no uncertain terms that they should leave the country if they wished to live under Islamic Sharia law. The message claims that the then Australian government was intent on targeting Muslim radicals "in a bid to head off potential terror attacks". The email also quotes a no-holds-barred diatribe about immigration supposedly delivered by John Howard. The message suggests that political leaders in Canada and the United States would do well to follow the lead of the Australian Prime Minister with regard to immigration policy.However, although the message does contain elements of truth, it is in fact highly misleading and inaccurate. At the outset, it should be noted that the message is now quite outdated. Versions of the email began circulating back in 2005. Since then, there has been a change of government in Australia. The Howard Government was resoundingly defeated in November 2007 and the current Australian Prime Minister is Labor's Kevin Rudd. However, the message contains no date and some non-Australian recipients may therefore wrongly assume that it refers to current events rather than events that occurred several years ago in a somewhat different political climate.
Update:February 2009Early in 2009
I began receiving versions of the above email that named Australia's current Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd, as the person responsible for the supposed anti-Muslim stance. It seems that some rather unimaginative prankster has simply substituted "Rudd" for "Howard" in the text and replaced the photograph of John Howard with one of Kevin Rudd before sending on the message. The message is otherwise identical to the example included above. The "Rudd" version strays even further from the truth than the original. None of the comments or opinions included in the message have any connection whatsoever with Kevin Rudd or his Government.

Although impossible, if it was possible for having our memories to be artificially extended, we would be able to remember the time when we were just tiny microscopic embryos.
Should an embryo, in the earliest stage of human life, entirely vulnerable, be subject to the whims and curiosity of scientists? Should scientists be allowed to choose this route to investigate human biology, genetics & potential medical cures - through genetic experiments on human embryos?
Whether you believe in God or not there is a sanctity to human life. Is curing genetic diseases and others, justify stem cell research and destruction of potential babies as valid?
We have no idea if any of this works. Or how it will work or what are the consequences. Will it cure genetic diseases right away? Is it by only understanding the world better, we can only help humans?
Are these scientists only helping you and your families to have a better future? Be the judge.
Stem cell debate: the issues
By Dr Amin Abboud
Regenerative medicine is an exciting new field of medicine in which different techniques, including stem cells, are used to repair damaged organs and tissues. The ethical issue is where we get the stem cells from. The destruction of embryos for stem cells research is ethically unacceptable.
What are stem cells?
Stem cells can change into many types of cells – heart cells, nerve cells, muscle cells, skin etc. Because of this capacity they may prove useful for treatment of some medical conditions .
Where do stem cells come from?
Adult stem cells can be taken from living humans (children or adults) without harming them. Embryonic stem cells come from embryos. The embryo is destroyed and its stem cells are extracted.
What are the benefits of stem cell treatment?
Stem cell research may benefit many conditions, including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, diabetes, spinal cord injuries, heart disease and cancer. The new cells may be able to replace damaged tissue. The only stem cells that have helped patients so far are adult stem cells. Embryonic stem cell research has not helped a single patient.
Which cells should doctors use?
The deception that there is no alternative to embryonic stem cell research is propagated by those with a personal interest in destructive embryonic stem cell research. Successful and ethical adult stem cell research involves no destruction of embryos.
Is this a clash between religion and science?
No. It is about good science versus bad science. Good science is ethical science.
Why are some scientists pushing embryonic stem cell research if the use of adult stem cell is useful and ethical?
The key argument for using stem cells from embryos is they are easier to change into other types of cells. While this has some basis, the technology is improving so rapidly that it is hard to substantiate. The advantage of embryo stem cells may already have been superseded.
Why shouldn’t we use embryonic stem cells for cures and research?
1. It is unethical.
The process of obtaining them destroys a human embryo.
2. Embryonic stem cells can cause cancer.
Embryonic stem cells are versatile but they can also become malignant. Their potential for causing cancer is a real concern for researchers.
3. It is unnecessary.
Adult stem cells are proving to be a viable alternative.
4. The benefits of embryonic stem cells are a long way off.
Most scientists admit that the potential benefits of embryonic stem cells are still distant. However, many adult stem cell breakthroughs have already taken place.
5. The use of adult stem cells seems to overcome the problem of immune rejection, which will be a big problem with embryonic stem cells.
Our bodies quickly recognise and try to kill off foreign tissues implanted in them. By using cells from oneself, the compatibility problem is avoided.
6. Embryonic stem-cell research is not driven by hope for cure, but lust for profit.
Many of the cell lines are in the hands of private companies. The amount of vested financial interests is staggering.
What about ‘reproductive cloning’?
Almost everyone agrees that ‘reproductive cloning’ should be banned. But if we allow cloning for research, unscrupulous people will inevitably push for cloning an embryo to produce a child.
Does an embryo deserve the same respect as a person?
The human embryo is a distinct, living human being and is entitled to the same rights as any other human being. Human life begins at conception (or fertilisation).
Won’t embryos be destroyed anyway? Why not do something useful with them?
Those who argue that frozen embryos would be destroyed anyway miss the point. Couples had the embryos created for implantation and bringing about new life. The existence of surplus embryos is a scientific embarrassment and legal mess created by the IVF industry.
This is edited from a report by Dr Amin Abboud, director of the Australasian Bioethics Information centre.

A glass of wine a day increases cancer risk by 168%
Press Trust of India
Thursday, February 19, 2009, (London)
Wine drinkers beware! A new study has claimed that sipping just a small goblet of wine every day an more than double the risk of cancer.
The study by France's National Cancer Institute (INCA) says that consuming just a 125ml glass of wine increases the chance of developing mouth and throat cancer by 168 per cent, Daily Mail reported.
"Small daily doses of alcohol are the most harmful. There is no amount, however small, which is good for you," INCA President Dominique Maraninchi was quoted as saying by the news daily.
Official figures show that alcohol is responsible for around 6 per cent - or 9,000 cases - of all cancer deaths in the UK each year, including 5,000 cases of mouth and esophagus cancer and 2,000 cases of breast cancer.
The INCA study said alcohol was now the second most avoidable cause of death after tobacco.
The findings contradict numerous other studies which have found that the antioxidants in red wine actually reduced the risk of cancer, and that a single glass a day was also good for the liver.
A separate study last year published in the medical journal Neurology said those who drank modest amounts of alcohol developed dementia, including Alzheimer's disease, at an 85 per cent slower rate than those who did not drink.
Rite seeks to absolve Thaksin of 'past life bad karma'
By The NationPublished on February 18, 2009
Ousted premier Thaksin Shinawatra's supporters held a rite at a Chiang Mai temple yesterday aimed at correcting "his sins in the past life" that were believed to have resulted in his bad karma.
Helen's View: I want to talk about saying "His sins in the past life" (BTY who can see some one's past life sins???).. I am not sure I was a sinner in my past life or not but I am a white siner (more or less likes, white lier??), in this recent life. OK.... put it this way, I am still a white lier sometime...ie., I told Robins that I am broke and no money!! ( I do have money so I call it this, a little white lie!! I know, I know ok this is not good). Who can see my white sins (or if I am sinning), beside God and myself?? Ok I am working on my white lie to NO LIE though! That's why I dare not to judge to no one beside my view or my opinion which is not always turn out to be true!!
The rite, a combination of animism, voodoo and Buddhism, was performed by the abbot of Wat Umong and eight other monks, as well as a pro-Thaksin trance medium. It was presided over by General Chaisit Shinawatra, Thaksin's cousin and former supreme commander of the armed forces.
Helen's View: I honestly tell you here that I do not know animism but I know what is Voodoo and Buddhism.
Here is the voodoo that I understand..... an African religion which believes in seven gods and uses spells and conjuring for personal gain or to hurt others.
When I was young this is what we were talking about voodoo in Collage with half brain of us. I was told that You can voodoo a man from who hate you so much into fall in love with you crazily!! Good voodoo ha? or Get a doll and poke with the needle with real hard (may be with hatefully), saying this doll is represents that the one you strongly dislike or buried the doll six foot under!! What a crazy talk ha? How foolish we are!! Well those day we do not have computer so may be this is the way young people talk? I haven't heard about voodoo for a long long time. I do not believe in voodoo.
PS... I got my Robins not by voodoo. I got him by my beauty, my talent and my views! (Well.... this is what I think at least!).
His supporters expected the Lanna-style ceremony to help relieve Thaksin of bad luck and ward off evil coming his way. About 300 people took part in the rite.
Helen's View: "Bad Luck"...Ok who can be good luck all the time in this world. Name me one! I would say very very very lucky to this person.
A large framed photo of Thaksin was placed on a stand at the venue. The fugitive ex-leader was unable to attend as he has fled abroad and lives in self-imposed exile.
A woman in her 50s, who is from the pro-Thaksin Rak Chiang Mai 51 group, acted as a trance medium.
She announced that in his previous life, Thaksin was a local warrior king who committed sins by killing his Burmese enemies and taking their money and Buddha images. The sins were said to be having a negative effects on Thaksin in his current life.
Helen's View: I would say Thaksin is very Lucky boy. See his past life was Warrior King not the little police. Then he turned out to be a Prime Minister in this life. Some one can be so bad luck that past life was a human being and this life can be a little bat or rat in the cave!!! Compare to this rat, he is still doing very good for this life.
Ok the Warrior King means you suppose to fight!! fight mean to kill the enemies sometime right?? This was his past life job, wasn't it?? Now, see as the new said Thaksin was sin by "Killing His Burmese Enemies"...Well thanks goodness he killed his enemies and not killing everyone who passed by him. I do not say my view is right but it does confuse me alot.
Offerings in the forms of coins, meat, rice, liquor and fruit were ceremoniously presented to an ancient Burmese king, before a Buddha statue.
Thaksin's supporters also included the naming of his political enemies - coup leader General Sonthi Boonyaratglin and People's Alliance for Democracy co-leader Sondhi Limthongkul - in the superstitious rite. It was supposed that the evil warded off from the former premier would be directed at them instead.
Chaisit, Thaksin's cousin, rejected a report that Thaksin "needed" the rite because he was ill. He said the rite was in fact aimed at "clearing off all the past sins" for Thaksin.
My conclusion: You know like it or not I will say that Not the only Dr. Thaksins need to clearing off all his past sins, We do should clean our past or this life sins. This will make all of us happy and more smily faces!!

Both patients passed away. I am so sad! I have learn so much about cancer patients feeling..... the way they change, their believing, their priority and their ways of living. Somehow..my cancer also it does change to me too.
One of the cancer patients that I followed, she was so unbeliever. She is smart, so confidence in many ways. She clearly said that she did not believe in God but I noticed that she loved to talk about God a lot though! Even in her last blog...she did mention God words twice. I am still asking that why a person who did not believe in God but still talking about God so much??? Even me and her see the world so differently, even she disagree strongly on Christianity, I like her blog. she is such a good writer. Trust me, Her blog make me love my Christ more. How? I can answer every bit of your questions. I do have the answer!!
Last night I read .."IN 1994, a company opened for business in Houston, Texas. Within Ten years, it mushroomed to multi billion dollar, worldwide corporation. Million invested in its stock.
By 2004, the officers of Enron faced criminal charges, the stock plummeted, and those millions of people lost their money_some of them their life savings.
Many people believe only what they can see such as a financial report. They have no confidence in something they can't see. "
"Blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed."
I did not see my Christ yet but I feel it each day. I will not betray because God is good. Lord, help me face life's problems standing on Your Promises. Help me to standfast in bad time or in good time with you forever. Amen!

I am a woman...yes! I do like to be beautiful but can't take the pain is my problem. I also know that NO pin, No gain! I think about botox all over my body which is needed, getting my papaya enlargement, my face lift, and butt lift...what more??. Well woman after 40+ we all need to be lifted everywhere unless you are born with the marvelous gene...like Tina Tunner?? Wooooooooo what a woman!!! Still very hot at 60+. I think she might have some job but not sure.
Two weeks ago, I read about Botox in the Nation Newspaper of Bangkok. One of the young Actor suing someone for the bad result of Botox. His photo show "Drooping Eyelid". Poor thing need to be lived with Droopy Eyelid for 3 to 4 months. That's my worry, how about living with Droopy nose for 4 months??
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Links to deaths
In September 2005, a paper published in the Journal of American Academy of Dermatology reported from the FDA saying that use of Botox has resulted in 28 deaths between 1989 and 2003, though none were attributed to cosmetic use.
On February 8, 2008, the FDA announced that Botox has "been linked in some cases to adverse reactions, including respiratory failure and death, following treatment of a variety of conditions using a wide range of doses," due to its ability to spread to areas distant to the site of the injection.
In January 2009, the Canadian government warned that botox can have the adverse effect of spreading to other parts of the body which could cause muscle weakness, swallowing difficulties, pneumonia, speech disorders and breathing problemsSeveral cases of death have been linked to the use of fake Botox.]
Side effects can be predicted from the mode of action (muscle paralysis) and chemical structure (protein) of the molecule, resulting broadly speaking in two major areas of side effects: paralysis of the wrong muscle group and allergic reaction. Bruising at the site of injection is a side effect not of the toxin, but rather the mode of administration. In cosmetic use, this means that the client will complain of inappropriate facial expression such as drooping eyelid, uneven smile, loss of ability to close the eye. This will wear off in around 6 weeks. Bruising is prevented by the clinician applying pressure to the injection site, but may still occur, and will last around 7 - 10 days. When injecting the masseter muscle of the jaw, loss of muscle function will result in a loss or reduction of power to chew solid foods. All cosmetic treatments are of limited duration, and can be as short a period as six weeks, but usually one sees with an effective period of between 3 and 8 months. At the extremely low doses used medicinally, botulinum toxin has a very low degree of toxicity.
Reported adverse events from cosmetic use includes headaches, focal facial paralysis, muscle weakness, dysphagia, flu-like syndromes, and allergic reactions.
There has been a petition by Public Citizen to the FDA requesting regulatory action concerning the possible spread of botulinum toxin (Botox, Myobloc) from the site of injection to other parts of the body (HRG Publication #1834).
I won't compare my life to Obama! There is nothing to compare ... He is the President Of United State and I am just Robins's wife! See the point??? So..... I won't compare but I taste my life from impossible to possible too.
I was born in Shan State, Burma. My parent understand that education is very important as guiding by some foreign mission people living in Shan State. I got into one of the best high school in Rangoon, Saint Augustin, then got my bachelor of Science from Rangoon University. After that got my French Diploma from Foreign Language Institute then Accredited Gemologist from Bangkok!! At the end I got married into a Successful Business Man from the State.
The time when my friends were crazy to go out from Burma, I was very happy working at the US Embassy in Burma. When my friends were getting married, I was happy working in Hong Kong/Macao. For me to go to the State is never in my dream because I have no money. Now I have money by marrying!! Ha, life is possible!.. Now I see Not only America but also many countries, Life is possible.
Before I know only few friends in Burma ..now I know so much friends such as... hospital bus driver, shop keepers, brokers, bankers, doctors, ex-President, Prime Minister, Princess, Rev., Nuns, Pastor, Scientist, Producer, Rocker, Mayor, Governor...Life impossible in Burma..now Possible!
I am counting my blessing. Deep down in my heart I know that where this blessing come from. I can't answer everything but one thing..I can answer for myself!
Life can be possible for you and me! Bottom line if you are honest and not lazy!!!

I admit it that sometime my way is not always tasteful but who can be tasteful all the time on this earth?? I had read the most recent "Urine" article and it make me feel ....... my jaw is dropping , my mouth keep staying wide open, my eyes can't stop rolling till the end of the article. I wish I can interview with the man who come out with this, the most wonderful idea, "Cow Urine Soft Drink"??
My questions are...Why cow urine beside so many animal?? Why not Rabbit's Urine? Because of the amount of accumulation of Urine? Is cow pee pee more often and big amount than rabbit does? Well the answer is..... yes that cow's pee is bigger amount than the rabbit but I am not sure on which animal pee more often.
My final question will be this, Do you need raw material? I have seen so many cows in Guatemala...New business for those Cattle owners?
Urine, for me is a waste of my body water. I do not want to put this my waste back into my body. Surely my new liver won't like it nor other parts of my body. Bottom line, "waste means failure to use it agian"!! so... I do not want to be friendly with the "Failure Liquid of my body"!!
I did very short research and found the following space which is amuse me alot.
Is drinking urine good for your health?
Yankee8156 on 10/12/2007
You can go drink some urine. I'll be plenty happy dead five years earlier for not doing so.
Kden said : See, from what I have read and heard, if you drink too much in a certain period of time, the stuff you piss out can kill you.
Mayhemt said: So we gonna have 'peepsi' & 'Dr. Peepper ', 7upee, 'Human dew' in nearest vending machines???
Sfacets said:When in school, we injected the class rabbit with it's own urine. It was dead in less than 6 hours.

Print ShareThisMove over Pepsi and Coke, there's some new competition on the shelf.
India's Hindu nationalist movement is launching a new soft drink made from cow urine.
The bovine brew is in the final stages of development by the Cow Protection Department of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), India's biggest and oldest Hindu nationalist group, according to the man who makes it.
Om Prakash, the head of the department, said the drink — called "gau jal," or "cow water" — in Sanskrit was undergoing laboratory tests and would be launched "very soon, maybe by the end of this year."
"Don't worry, it won't smell like urine and will be tasty too," he told the Times of London from his headquarters in Hardwar, one of four holy cities on the River Ganges. "Its USP will be that it's going to be very healthy. It won't be like carbonated drinks and would be devoid of any toxins."
The drink is the latest attempt by the RSS – which was founded in 1925 and now claims 8 million members – to cleanse India of foreign influence and promote its ideology of Hindutva, or Hindu-ness.
Click here to read more on this story from the Times of London.
My, Helen's conclusion: To drink or not to drink the "Cow Urine Soft Drink" is all up to you. For me is...... for sure that I won't drink it. One day IF I wake up with mentally screw up and feeling like to drink URINE, It will be my own urine but not that cow urine nor any other kinds of urine!!! I wish all the best to the "Cow Urine Soft Drink Company, in Idian" that their future will be all bright and shining upon them!!

Famous Scientists Who Believed in God
Belief in God
Is belief in the existence of God irrational? These days, many famous scientists are also strong proponents of atheism. However, in the past, and even today, many scientists believe that God exists and is responsible for what we see in nature. This is a small sampling of scientists who contributed to the development of modern science while believing in God. Although many people believe in a "God of the gaps", these scientists, and still others alive today, believe because of the evidence.
Nicholas Copernicus (1473-1543)
Copernicus was the Polish astronomer who put forward the first mathematically based system of planets going around the sun. He attended various European universities, and became a Canon in the Catholic church in 1497. His new system was actually first presented in the Vatican gardens in 1533 before Pope Clement VII who approved, and urged Copernicus to publish it around this time. Copernicus was never under any threat of religious persecution - and was urged to publish both by Catholic Bishop Guise, Cardinal Schonberg, and the Protestant Professor George Rheticus. Copernicus referred sometimes to God in his works, and did not see his system as in conflict with the Bible.
Sir Francis Bacon (1561-1627)
Bacon was a philosopher who is known for establishing the scientific method of inquiry based on experimentation and inductive reasoning. In De Interpretatione Naturae Prooemium, Bacon established his goals as being the discovery of truth, service to his country, and service to the church. Although his work was based upon experimentation and reasoning, he rejected atheism as being the result of insufficient depth of philosophy, stating, "It is true, that a little philosophy inclineth man’s mind to atheism, but depth in philosophy bringeth men's minds about to religion; for while the mind of man looketh upon second causes scattered, it may sometimes rest in them, and go no further; but when it beholdeth the chain of them confederate, and linked together, it must needs fly to Providence and Deity." (Of Atheism)
Johannes Kepler (1571-1630)
Kepler was a brilliant mathematician and astronomer. He did early work on light, and established the laws of planetary motion about the sun. He also came close to reaching the Newtonian concept of universal gravity - well before Newton was born! His introduction of the idea of force in astronomy changed it radically in a modern direction. Kepler was an extremely sincere and pious Lutheran, whose works on astronomy contain writings about how space and the heavenly bodies represent the Trinity. Kepler suffered no persecution for his open avowal of the sun-centered system, and, indeed, was allowed as a Protestant to stay in Catholic Graz as a Professor (1595-1600) when other Protestants had been expelled!
Galileo Galilei (1564-1642)
Galileo is often remembered for his conflict with the Roman Catholic Church. His controversial work on the solar system was published in 1633. It had no proofs of a sun-centered system (Galileo's telescope discoveries did not indicate a moving earth) and his one "proof" based upon the tides was invalid. It ignored the correct elliptical orbits of planets published twenty five years earlier by Kepler. Since his work finished by putting the Pope's favorite argument in the mouth of the simpleton in the dialogue, the Pope (an old friend of Galileo's) was very offended. After the "trial" and being forbidden to teach the sun-centered system, Galileo did his most useful theoretical work, which was on dynamics. Galileo expressly said that the Bible cannot err, and saw his system as an alternate interpretation of the biblical texts.
Rene Descartes (1596-1650)
Descartes was a French mathematician, scientist and philosopher who has been called the father of modern philosophy. His school studies made him dissatisfied with previous philosophy: He had a deep religious faith as a Roman Catholic, which he retained to his dying day, along with a resolute, passionate desire to discover the truth. At the age of 24 he had a dream, and felt the vocational call to seek to bring knowledge together in one system of thought. His system began by asking what could be known if all else were doubted - suggesting the famous "I think therefore I am". Actually, it is often forgotten that the next step for Descartes was to establish the near certainty of the existence of God - for only if God both exists and would not want us to be deceived by our experiences - can we trust our senses and logical thought processes. God is, therefore, central to his whole philosophy. What he really wanted to see was that his philosophy be adopted as standard Roman Catholic teaching. Rene Descartes and Francis Bacon (1561-1626) are generally regarded as the key figures in the development of scientific methodology. Both had systems in which God was important, and both seem more devout than the average for their era.
Isaac Newton (1642-1727)
In optics, mechanics, and mathematics, Newton was a figure of undisputed genius and innovation. In all his science (including chemistry) he saw mathematics and numbers as central. What is less well known is that he was devoutly religious and saw numbers as involved in understanding God's plan for history from the Bible. He did a considerable work on biblical numerology, and, though aspects of his beliefs were not orthodox, he thought theology was very important. In his system of physics, God is essential to the nature and absoluteness of space. In Principia he stated, "The most beautiful system of the sun, planets, and comets, could only proceed from the counsel and dominion on an intelligent and powerful Being."
Robert Boyle (1791-1867)
One of the founders and key early members of the Royal Society, Boyle gave his name to "Boyle's Law" for gases, and also wrote an important work on chemistry. Encyclopedia Britannica says of him: "By his will he endowed a series of Boyle lectures, or sermons, which still continue, 'for proving the Christian religion against notorious infidels...' As a devout Protestant, Boyle took a special interest in promoting the Christian religion abroad, giving money to translate and publish the New Testament into Irish and Turkish. In 1690 he developed his theological views in The Christian Virtuoso, which he wrote to show that the study of nature was a central religious duty." Boyle wrote against atheists in his day (the notion that atheism is a modern invention is a myth), and was clearly much more devoutly Christian than the average in his era.
Michael Faraday (1791-1867)
Michael Faraday was the son of a blacksmith who became one of the greatest scientists of the 19th century. His work on electricity and magnetism not only revolutionized physics, but led to much of our lifestyles today, which depends on them (including computers and telephone lines and, so, web sites). Faraday was a devoutly Christian member of the Sandemanians, which significantly influenced him and strongly affected the way in which he approached and interpreted nature. Originating from Presbyterians, the Sandemanians rejected the idea of state churches, and tried to go back to a New Testament type of Christianity.
Gregor Mendel (1822-1884)
Mendel was the first to lay the mathematical foundations of genetics, in what came to be called "Mendelianism". He began his research in 1856 (three years before Darwin published his Origin of Species) in the garden of the Monastery in which he was a monk. Mendel was elected Abbot of his Monastery in 1868. His work remained comparatively unknown until the turn of the century, when a new generation of botanists began finding similar results and "rediscovered" him (though their ideas were not identical to his). An interesting point is that the 1860's was notable for formation of the X-Club, which was dedicated to lessening religious influences and propagating an image of "conflict" between science and religion. One sympathizer was Darwin's cousin Francis Galton, whose scientific interest was in genetics (a proponent of eugenics - selective breeding among humans to "improve" the stock). He was writing how the "priestly mind" was not conducive to science while, at around the same time, an Austrian monk was making the breakthrough in genetics. The rediscovery of the work of Mendel came too late to affect Galton's contribution.
William Thomson Kelvin (1824-1907)
Kelvin was foremost among the small group of British scientists who helped to lay the foundations of modern physics. His work covered many areas of physics, and he was said to have more letters after his name than anyone else in the Commonwealth, since he received numerous honorary degrees from European Universities, which recognized the value of his work. He was a very committed Christian, who was certainly more religious than the average for his era. Interestingly, his fellow physicists George Gabriel Stokes (1819-1903) and James Clerk Maxwell (1831-1879) were also men of deep Christian commitment, in an era when many were nominal, apathetic, or anti-Christian. The Encyclopedia Britannica says "Maxwell is regarded by most modern physicists as the scientist of the 19th century who had the greatest influence on 20th century physics; he is ranked with Sir Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein for the fundamental nature of his contributions." Lord Kelvin was an Old Earth creationist, who estimated the Earth's age to be somewhere between 20 million and 100 million years, with an upper limit at 500 million years based on cooling rates (a low estimate due to his lack of knowledge about radiogenic heating).
Max Planck (1858-1947)
Planck made many contributions to physics, but is best known for quantum theory, which revolutionized our understanding of the atomic and sub-atomic worlds. In his 1937 lecture "Religion and Naturwissenschaft," Planck expressed the view that God is everywhere present, and held that "the holiness of the unintelligible Godhead is conveyed by the holiness of symbols." Atheists, he thought, attach too much importance to what are merely symbols. Planck was a churchwarden from 1920 until his death, and believed in an almighty, all-knowing, beneficent God (though not necessarily a personal one). Both science and religion wage a "tireless battle against skepticism and dogmatism, against unbelief and superstition" with the goal "toward God!"
Albert Einstein (1879-1955)
Einstein is probably the best known and most highly revered scientist of the twentieth century, and is associated with major revolutions in our thinking about time, gravity, and the conversion of matter to energy (E=mc2). Although never coming to belief in a personal God, he recognized the impossibility of a non-created universe. The Encyclopedia Britannica says of him: "Firmly denying atheism, Einstein expressed a belief in "Spinoza's God who reveals himself in the harmony of what exists." This actually motivated his interest in science, as he once remarked to a young physicist: "I want to know how God created this world, I am not interested in this or that phenomenon, in the spectrum of this or that element. I want to know His thoughts, the rest are details." Einstein's famous epithet on the "uncertainty principle" was "God does not play dice" - and to him this was a real statement about a God in whom he believed. A famous saying of his was "Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind."
Have a good read!!
P.S. I read this news from the Women Healthy Blog, By Admin...
Some natural menopause women without make up and pretending!
For many women, menopause is a difficult period of transition between the years of the age. Menopause occurs naturally when the decrease in female hormones and the body of the woman no longer cause egg follicles mature each month in preparation for the pregnancy. Menopause is considered complete, one year after a woman from the last menstrual period.

"How do you feel?" is the question that lots of people asking me and I mostly answered "I feel good". My answer is base on only how my physical body feels....I just do not want to answer more than that. But today I want to tell you more beside that physical feeling. There are two kinds of feeling after I received the precious Liver.
I won't say too much about physical change (by medical, food, sport or drink), because you all know what I am saying. What I want to share here is on my emotionally changed or may be still changing.
Do yo all notice that we have shadow which is always behind you??? Well sometime in front of you, beside of you!!! I am sure you all do notice that. The shadows are cause by the light but my shadow that I want to talk about is not cause by light. It's call "My liver donor's" shadow. The more I live, the more I notice my special shadow. I am quite sure that this shadow will follow me with light or without light.
I read about "The donors and recipients families meeting" often. I have this dream that one day, I am going to see my donor's family too. I want to hear from my donor's parent (not from other),
that ...... How he looks like?, What is his hobby?, What is his eyes colour?, Where did he lives? Many questions going on ....
My most concern is on my donor's parent. Are they OK? How they cope with the lost? Where are they living? How many children they have?
I know there is a reason for my donor's life was cut short. This is my wish...I hope what ever years that he lived on this earth will be for the best year of him. Sometime I wonder that I am living and will live for how long but for a happily, meaningful or normal life, I am not so sure for that. I say that because there is never ending problem that we are dealing with each day. One thing is very sure I am still with my son. As a believer, there is a reason (which I do not know yet), that why God still wants me on this earth.
No one on this earth will fully understand that how me and my donor's family are feeling unless you are in our shoes.
2 years and 3 months cancer free but emotionally am I free yet?? No!!!!!! is my answer. I wonder till when!!!
Please put us in your prayers!

My point is when I blog that "Albert Einstein"..I am not interesting his famous name. I respect what he had done to human. As I am a Christian, I do not mislead to other become Christian by my last blog. Then why I blog it??? I blog it because I love the conversation. I do not care the conversation was taking part between who ever will be but I will still like the conversation.
I blog it because I love the "Conversation".
This is what I believe..... no matter how much I share my blessing, my faith or my preaching , the bottom line is between "God and you". It very much depend on your faith, your work, your believing and your prayers, not mine!!
Remember...To earn the money, you have to work! I do not care even the free money from the Parents, you still need to work to manage that free money.

He asks one of his New Christian Students to stand and . . .
Professor : You are a Christian, aren't you, son ?
How is this GOD Good then ? Hmm ?
Let's start again, Young Fella.
Is GOD Good ?
Tell me son, is there evil in this World ?
And GOD did make Everything. Correct ?
All these terrible things exist in the World, don't they ?
( Student has no answer )
Student : Yes.
( There is Pin - Drop Silence in the Lecture Theatre )
Student : What about Darkness, Professor ? Is there such a thing as Darkness ?
Darkness is the Absence of Something.
You can have Low Light, Normal Light , Bright Light, Flashing Light . . .
But if you have No Light Constantly, you have Nothing and it's called Darkness, isn't it ?
In reality, Darkness isn't.
If it is, were you would be able to make Darkness Darker, wouldn't you ?
Now tell me, Professor, do you Teach your Students that they Evolved from a Monkey ?
( The Professor shakes his head with a Smile, beginning to realize where the Argument is going )
Are you not a Scientist but a Preacher ?
( The Class is in Uproar )
That is all that Keeps Things Moving & Alive.
