Incredible Archaeological Discoveries Made in Basements
From Ancient Roman Gold, to skeletons in Benjamin Franklin’s house! Here are some of the most unbelievable Archaeological discoveries made in basements. 7. Noah The Penn Museum in Philadelphia is a common tourist stop. With galleries dedicated to cultures like ancient Egypt and Canaan, the museum has something to appeal to literally every history nerd out there. With such a large array of exhibits, the museum has a rather involved and detailed catalog system to keep everything organized and safe. Despite this, somehow an incredible find slipped through the cracks and lay unattended and forgotten in the museum’s basement for quite some time. Nicknamed Noah, the 6,500 year old skeleton had been unmoved in the basement for around eighty five years. There were no records on hand for the piece but, after some digging, a file was found in the antiquated records that revealed Noah was unearthed in modern day Iraq between 1929 and 1930. Noah had once been accounted for as one of two skeletons recovered from the Iraqi dig but was lost and officially listed as “unaccounted for” in 1990. Researchers had been searching for the body since but were unsuccessful until the fluke find in 2014. 6. An Entire City The Anatolia region of Turkey is known for its vast array of underground cities. In spite of this, it was probably quite the shock when, in 2014, a homeowner discovered the beginning of a massive living area while clearing out an area beneath his home. Mustafa Bozdemir was gifted a home and set about to renovate it. He found what he believed to be some sort of food storage cellar under the one story house; a short time later he uncovered human bones which were sent off to be studied. As he continued his work, he discovered that his bonus room was something far more incredible; it was the first of a series of homes in an entire underground city! So far, excavation efforts have found the city to contain homes, stockyards, and pretty much any other facet of everyday ancient life you could imagine. Exploration is ongoing currently with more finding popping up each month. 5. A Biblical Treasure Trove Sometimes when a loved one passes on they leave behind some bizarre things. Money hidden in walls, old cars, and creepy porcelain doll collections are all fairly common occurrences, it seems. When Osnat Lester’s relative died, he left behind something absolutely unbelievable: a collection of ancient artifacts. From her home near the Sea of Galilee, Lester placed a phone call to the Israel Antiquities Authority upon finding the collection of pottery and other pieces. The archaeologists who came to the scene were amazed by the collection, which was apparently pulled from the Mediterranean Sea by the deceased relative, who was a fisherman. The collection included pieces that were over three thousand years old, dating to the biblical era. Another vase was found to be from the Roman era with an age of more than two thousand years; a third piece was dated to the Byzantine era and was around 1500 years old. All of the pieces were well preserved despite being packed into crates in a basement for years; Lester, who has been dubbed a “good samaritan”, plans to allow the pieces to be displayed in the coming years. 4. Part of American History When Alexandra Poulos’s father moved out of her childhood home, she jumped at the opportunity to keep the white colonial’s ownership within the family. Bought by her parents in 1974, the Pennsylvania house held a special place in her heart; she fixed it up and began renting it out to carefully selected tenants. 3. Roman Gold 2.

Top 10 Bizarre Discoveries That Scientists Can't Explain
Scientists often get baffled when unraveling discoveries and mysteries, as they try to findlogic where it may seem to be absent. But not all discoveries can be explained by science. At the very least, not for now. Here are 10 of the most bizarre discoveries that scientists can't explain. Subscribe for more! ► http://bit.ly/BeAmazedSubscribe ◄ Stay updated ► http://bit.ly/BeAmazedFacebook https://twitter.com/BeAmazedVideos https://instagram.com/BeAmazedVideos ◄ For copyright queries or general inquiries please get in touch: beamazedvideos@gmail.com Credit: https://pastebin.com/cPKJ2gj9 Be Amazed at these Top 10 Bizarre Discoveries that Scientists Can't Explain! Longyou Caves - Hidden deep within the remote village of Shiyan Beicun in the province of Zhejiang, China, lie the fabled Longyou Caves. At a mere glance, it may seem just like your run-of-the-mill ancient civilization wonder. Roman Dodecahedrons - Roman dodecahedrons may look like your average metal trinket, but they actually go way back since the start of the 2nd and 3rd century CE. Maine Penny - The Maine Penny, sometimes referred to as the Goddard coin, is a silver coin of Norwegian origin believed to have been produced at the latter half of 11th century CE. The Baltic Sea Object - On June 2011, the Swedish ocean diving team "Ocean X" detected via sonar a very strange object under the northern Baltic Sea floor. Lake Winnipesaukee Mystery Stone - One of the most controversial and mysterious anachronistic finds is the Lake Winnipesaukee mystery stone. Slime Mold Intelligence - What constitutes intelligence? Sapience? Sentience? Its typically easy to just point to examples of intelligence, rather than actually define it. That's because there have been many cases that consistently challenge our very views of this abstract concept. The Wow! Signal - It was one fateful evening on August 15, 1977. A soon-to-be-phenomenal narrowband radio signal was received by the Big Ear radio telescope in Ohio, United States. The Dogu Figurines (do-guu) - The Dogu Figurines are a set of clay figurines of various shapes and sizes that were found all across Japan. Its name comes from the word doguu, which means clay figure in Japanese. Voynich Manuscript - Perhaps one of the best known mystery documents of all time, the Voynich Manuscript is a codex, or book, which is written in an almost alien code that nobody has yet been able to decipher. The Zodiac Concrete Slab- The Zodiac Concrete Slab was the tentative name for a mysterious piece of stone found near a residence in Mission, British Columbia in 2013.

State of the Field 2016: Archaeology of Egypt – First Session
September 24th, 2016 9:00 am First session – “Breaking temporal boundaries”: Introduction – Laurel Bestock (Brown University) 9:10 am Josef Wegner (University of Pennsylvania) – The Archaeology of Messy Politics: Recent Evidence on Egypt’s Second Intermediate Period Many scholars have observed the inadequacies of the long-engrained division of Egyptian history into the Kingdoms and Intermediate Periods. Compartmentalizing long eras of cultural and social change under these single overarching terms fundamentally detracts from the understanding the dynamic political and social changes that span these large historical phases. Egypt’s Second Intermediate Period (ca. 1700-1550 BCE) is a phase where historical and archaeological evidence continues to challenge us. Standard interpretations of the era revolve around an essentially bipolar model: a territorial division of Egypt into a northern Hyksos Kingdom (15th Dynasty), and a southern Theban Kingdom (16th-17th Dynasties) which grew from the southward retraction of the final stage of the Middle Kingdom (the 13th Dynasty). The recent discovery of a royal cemetery at South Abydos consisting of the burials of eight Second Intermediate Period kings, and including the previously unknown ruler Seneb-Kay, provides new evidence for this period. Rather than a bipolar model we see indications a more complex mosaic of territorial and political division. The Second Intermediate Period emerges as an ever more complex era, determined by political forces of the Hyksos in the Nile Delta, the impact of the Kerma kingdom in Nubia, and competing factions within the Egyptian Nile Valley. New research by archaeologists working from the Delta to Nubia will help to further refine our understandings of this crucial phase in Egypt’s development. 9:30 am Elizabeth Bolman (Temple University) – The Red Monastery Church: Breaking Boundaries The early Byzantine triconch sanctuary in the Red Monastery church, near Sohag in Upper Egypt, has been the subject of a fifteen-year project of conservation, documentation, analysis and publication funded by USAID and administered by ARCE. This dynamic monument breaks numerous boundaries: temporal, geographical and methodological. It contains an astonishing array of figural and ornamental paintings that cover the surfaces of an equally remarkable multi-tiered architectural ensemble. The sanctuary and its decoration date to the late fifth and sixth centuries, thus well beyond the standard temporal scope for Egyptology. The church, which was almost completely unknown before conservation, undermines the longstanding view that Upper Egypt was geographically and culturally isolated in this period. Instead, it demonstrates unequivocally that this region was thoroughly integrated into the early Byzantine world. This fact has gone unnoticed by art historians, and thus the conservation and publication of the building is radically altering our picture of visual production in the empire. Newer digital methods of documentation undertaken during the project, including an online, interactive 360 panorama of the triconch and the laser scanning of the entire church make the church available to a global audience and preserve a high-quality record of its state at the end of the project. 9:50 am Response: Ian Straughn (Brown University) 10:10 am Discussion

Human Evolution and Why It Matters: A Conversation with Leakey and Johanson
Celebrating decades of groundbreaking exploration in East Africa, renowned paleoanthropologists Donald Johanson and Richard Leakey shared the stage at the American Museum of Natural History on May 5 to discuss the overwhelming evidence for evolution in the hominid fossil record and why understanding our evolutionary history is so important. The discussion, before a sold-out crowd in the Museum's LeFrak Theater, was moderated by Dr. Sanjay Gupta, chief medical correspondent for CNN. The event was also live-streamed on amnh.org to a digital audience of several hundred viewers around the country. Known for such landmark discoveries as "Lucy" (Johanson) and "Turkana Boy" (Leakey), the work of these two scientists has produced much of the fossil evidence that forms our understanding of human evolution. Looking back over careers spanning 40-plus years, Dr. Johanson and Dr. Leakey shared the stories behind their monumental finds and offered a look at what's ahead in human evolutionary research. This historic event was made possible through a joint partnership of the American Museum of Natural History, the Arizona State University Institute of Human Origins, and the Turkana Basin Institute, headquartered in the U.S. at Stony Brook University. This video is a recording of the live stream, which ran at http://www.amnh.org/live Produced and directed by James Sims.

Biblical Series I: Introduction to the Idea of God
Lecture I in my Psychological Significance of the Biblical Stories series from May 16th at Isabel Bader Theatre in Toronto. In this lecture, I describe what I consider to be the idea of God, which is at least partly the notion of sovereignty and power, divorced from any concrete sovereign or particular, individual person of power. I also suggest that God, as Father, is something akin to the spirit or pattern inherent in the human hierarchy of authority, which is based in turn on the dominance hierarchies characterizing animals.

Perspectives on Native Representations Symposium: Keynote Speaker Panel
Friday, February 20, 2015 Perspectives on Native Representations Symposium: Keynote Speaker Panel Dr. Adrienne Keene, Migizi Penseneau & Matika Wilbur While the history between Native peoples and representations of identity projected upon them (having been replicated and reinforced in popular culture) is layered and complex, the rise of technology and social media has ushered in an era of accessible activism that pushes against this history. Native peoples across the world now have practicable, highly visible modes to express unique voices that challenge and redefine how Natives are represented both internal and external of their communities. "Perspectives on Native Representations" seeks to highlight the multiple contexts through which representations of Native communities, culture and individuals are being shifted and re-imagined.

From the Vatican Junk Box
Michael Rood and Nehemia Gordon detail a literary revelation never seen in the history of Bible research, including Hebrew manuscripts presumed inexistent — lost treasures in the depths of the Vatican. After centuries of assumption that the New Testament was written in Greek, the discovery of a Hebrew version of the Gospel of Matthew blew the lid off the modern understanding of ancient times, context, and even the purpose and meaning of the Gospel. This paradigm-shattering shift of a Hebrew Gospel written by a Hebrew disciple had scholars begging the question, “Could there be more?” Indeed, there are. In rapid succession, centuries-old manuscripts are coming to light, right now. Don’t miss this incredible discovery revealed from this episode of Shabbat Night Live!

BBC - The Secret History of the British Garden (2015) Part 1: 17th-century
Monty Don explores the fascinating history and evolution of the British garden, from the seventeenth century through to the modern day. Part 1: 17th-century Monty Don uncovers the extraordinary stories behind Britain's 17th-century gardens. Starting his journey at the sole surviving garden of the 1600s - Levens Hall in Cumbria - Monty sets out to investigate what the gardens of this age would have looked like and what influenced and inspired their creation. Along the way, he sees a long-lost garden that - through archaeology and a German Luftwaffe photograph taken in the 1940s - reveals the hidden messages and religious beliefs of our 17th-century forebears. And Monty heads to Hampton Court, where politics, civil war and religious conflict played a key role in the evolving designs and fashions, including tastes in food, of the nation's finest gardens.

Holy Hallucinations 42: Homo vs Homo, Part 1
Firstly, thanks to everyone who made the effort to kindly mirror or otherwise promote my trailer – you’re the type of people that help me manage to hang on tenuously to my faith in humanity. I really appreciate it! And so, after a long absence, you can all thank Pastor Carl’s decision to start making anti-science videos again for calling me out of semi-retirement. Do feel free to pop over to his channel and express your gratitude to him for facilitating my return if you’re so inclined. When I first saw Pastor Carl’s offering, I was particularly galling to see that he was not only disparaging the Theory of Biological Evolution with his laughably inane “argumentation”, but had also reverted to type and had taken to sneering smugly at scientists again, just as he had back in Holy Hallucinations 8 when this particularly loathsome crap-sack first came to my attention. It is therefore with great pleasure that I present for your delectation, a particularly vicious fact-raping of a particularly reprehensible creationist fucktard. Stay tuned for part two, since there was more material in his video than I could possible cram into one episode (or rectum, for that matter), though be patient as my other commitments mean that it will probably be several months before I can serve the next course. The preposterous excuse for an argument to which I am responding can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tp9OTueGk48 Thank you to Lord Crocosquirrel for bring Pastor Carl’s new activities to my attention.

Study: Bones in South African cave reveal new human relative
MAGALIESBURG, South Africa (AP) -- Scientists say they've discovered a new member of the human family tree, revealed by a huge trove of bones in a barely accessible, pitch-dark chamber of a cave in South Africa. The creature shows a surprising mix of human-like and more primitive characteristics - some experts called it "bizarre" and "weird." And the discovery presents some key mysteries: How old are the bones? And how did they get into that chamber, reachable only by a complicated pathway that includes squeezing through passages as narrow as about 7 1/2 inches (17.8 centimeters)? The bones were found by a spelunker, about 30 miles (48 kilometers) northwest of Johannesburg. The site has yielded some 1,550 specimens since its discovery in 2013. The fossils represent at least 15 individuals. Researchers named the creature Homo naledi (nah-LEH-dee). That reflects the "Homo" evolutionary group, which includes modern people and our closest extinct relatives, and the word for "star" in a local language. The find was made in the Rising Star cave system. The creature, which evidently walked upright, represents a mix of traits. For example, the hands and feet look like Homo, but the shoulders and the small brain recall Homo's more ape-like ancestors, the researchers said. Lee Berger, a professor at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg who led the work, said naledi's anatomy suggest that it arose at or near the root of the Homo group, which would make the species some 2.5 million to 2.8 million years old. The discovered bones themselves may be younger, said Berger, an American. At a news conference Thursday in the Cradle of Humankind, a site near the town of Magaliesburg where the discovery was made, bones were arranged in the shape of skeleton in a glass-covered wooden case. Fragments of small skulls, an almost complete jawbone with teeth, and pieces of limbs, fingers and other bones were arrayed around the partial skeleton. Berger handed a skull reconstruction to Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa, who kissed it, as did other VIPs. Berger beamed throughout the unveiling. The researchers also announced the discovery in the journal eLife. They said they were unable to determine an age for the fossils because of unusual characteristics of the site, but that they are still trying. Berger said researchers are not claiming that naledi was a direct ancestor of modern-day people, and experts unconnected to the project said they believed it was not. Rick Potts, director of the human origins program at the Smithsonian Institution's Natural History Museum, who was not involved in the discovery, said that without an age, "there's no way we can judge the evolutionary significance of this find." If the bones are about as old as the Homo group, that would argue that naledi is "a snapshot of ... the evolutionary experimentation that was going on right around the origin" of Homo, he said. If they are significantly younger, it either shows the naledi retained the primitive body characteristics much longer than any other known creature, or that it re-evolved them, he said. Eric Delson of Lehman College in New York, who also wasn't involved with the work, said his guess is that naledi fits within a known group of early Homo creatures from around 2 million year ago. Besides the age of the bones, another mystery is how they got into the difficult-to-reach area of the cave. The researchers said they suspect the naledi may have repeatedly deposited their dead in the room, but alternatively it may have been a death trap for individuals that found their own way in. "This stuff is like a Sherlock Holmes mystery," declared Bernard Wood of George Washington University in Washington, D.C., who was not involved in the study. Visitors to the cave must have created artificial light, as with a torch, Wood said. The people who did cave drawings in Europe had such technology, but nobody has suspected that mental ability in creatures with such a small brain as naledi, he said. Potts said a deliberate disposal of dead bodies is a feasible explanation, but he added it's not clear who did the disposing. Maybe it was some human relative other than naledi, he said. Not everybody agreed that the discovery revealed a new species. Tim White of the University of California, Berkeley, called that claim questionable. "From what is presented here, (the fossils) belong to a primitive Homo erectus, a species named in the 1800s," he said in an email. At the news conference in South Africa, Berger disputed that. "Could this be the body of homo erectus? Absolutely not. It could not be erectus," Berger said. 2015 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

Google Tech Talks March 14, 2007 ABSTRACT Murray Gell-Mann is one of the largest living legends in physics. He's also been described as The Man With Five Brains, and it's no puzzle why: He was admitted to Yale at 15, got his PhD from MIT at 21, and is an international advisor on the environment. He speaks 13 languages fluently (at last count), and has expertise in such far-ranging fields as natural history, historical linguistics, archaeology, bird-watching, depth psychology, and the theory of complex adaptive systems. Oh yeah... he also coined the term "quark," after developing key aspects of the modern theory of quantum physics... for which he earned an unshared Nobel prize in physics in...

The Sydney-Kormoran Project Shipwreck Expedition
http://museum.wa.gov.au/explore/sydney/2015-expedition In May 2015, Curtin researchers participated in an eight-day expedition to the wrecks of the Australian light cruiser HMAS Sydney II and the German raider HSK Kormoran, which sank each other off Western Australia’s coast in November 1941. The wrecks lie in 2,500 metres of water, 20 kilometres apart, approximately 200 kilometres west of Shark Bay. The Sydney-Kormoran Project, a collaboration between the WA Museum, Curtin University, and offshore services company DOF Subsea, is using the latest imaging technology to capture the unique heritage value of the two ships so they can be investigated, managed and interpreted for future generations. Researchers are working toward the development of an interactive 3D model of the wrecks that will become the basis for a new museum exhibition, giving visitors an interactive and immersive experience of the wreck sites.

History of British Ceylon Documentary
A personal journey into the history of tea and Britain's involvement with Sri Lanka. I trace my own ancestry to the days of the British Empire, when my family were planters in Ceylon. I meet a long lost relative from the Congreve family and I even find 19th century photos of my ancestor Norman Rowsell hung up in a Victorian sports pavilion called the Darrawella Club. The British Empire is viewed in the context of civilisational cycles and I explain author John Still's theory of the Jungle Tide and the jungle gods that are still worshipped here. Tea and the modern tea industry of Sri Lanka that was founded under the British Empire, is here used as a device by which the viewer can look at the history of that country and understand the impermanent and fragile nature of all civilisation.

State of the Field 2016: Archaeology of Egypt – Third Session
September 24th, 2016 2:00 pm Third session – “Breaking methodological boundaries”: Introduction – Samantha Lash (Brown University) 2:10 pm Pearce Paul Creasman (University of Arizona) – Expanding Methodological Boundaries in Egyptian Archaeology by Land and by Sea (or River!) As a result of the practice of ritually provisioning the dead for the afterlife and a climate favorable to preservation, ancient Egypt is today one of the most inspiring and alluring cultures in human history. Over the past two centuries, Egypt has been the subject of thousands of archaeological investigations that have added immensely to the collective understanding of its ancient culture and the world around it. While certain fundamental methodological advances in archaeology arose from these excavations (e.g., contextual seriation), archaeology in Egypt has yet to realize the full value of several other prominent and well-established modes of inquiry. This paper discusses the potential of two such disciplines and presents collaborative possibilities for moving forward with them: dendrochronology and maritime/underwater archaeology. 2:30 pm Willeke Wendrich (Cotsen Institute of Archaeology, UCLA) – Real Data, Virtual Reality: Theories of Visualization Egyptology has developed in a direction that is increasingly multi-disciplinary. When studying coffin texts, it is no longer sufficient to compare different printed text versions. In addition, the provenance, location of the text on the coffin, name and titles of owner, decorative schema and the materials used, all provide information relevant to the interpretation and the understanding of the religious and social context. Similarly, archaeology deals with sets of information provided by different specialists in various formats ranging from notebooks, spreadsheets, databases, maps and photographs to geophysical data and results of chemical and DNA analysis. To integrate and combine the results of complex research data visualization is an important tool, provided that it is used in a well-theorized way. 2:50 pm Response: N.

Are Trapped Emotions Affecting Your Health - CHTV 171
Emotional detox and healing has been a topic of strong interest to me in recent years, both personally and clinically. My son Daniel read a book called "The Emotion Code" a few months ago, raving about the technique and how it's use has improved his physical and mental well-being. Long story short, since reading the book and seeing the results the technique has made on my family, I'm a believer now, too. Author and creator of the Emotion Code Dr. Bradley Nelson joins the show to explain the concept, the Why, and the implementation. Emotional detox is a vital piece to healing, especially when you're "doing everything right" and still failing to see desired results.

10 Mythical Creatures That Actually Existed!
top 10 fictional creatures from myths in books and popular tales that were actually real Subscribe to our channel: http://goo.gl/9CwQhg For copyright matters please contact us at: david.f@valnetinc.com Other Videos You Might Like Most Mysterious Creatures Found On The Beach https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aq1JxL0iswg Shocking Post Mortem Photos Of Famous People https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q-xiwPmLgP0 Description: There is a fine line between mythical lore and, you know, reality. Just ask the countless folks who swear to have encountered every type of fantastical creature from Bigfoot to mermaids to Sasquatch to Tupac Shakur. These sightings could be cases of people’s minds playing tricks on them or made up stories to make themselves more interesting, but is it possible that they might just possibly be telling the truth? Without legitimate, clear and non-doctored photo evidence, these claims are both implausible and impossible to prove, but remain impossible to absolutely rule out. That may seem like a ridiculous pretext, but the very nature of myth-making often serves as a bridge between the imagined and the real. Very few legends are pulled strictly from one’s dreamed up imagination. Instead, stories often carry some basis in fact and personal experience that are then exaggerated, embellished upon and played up with added flair. A regular old pig can become a ferocious wild boar, a snake can be transformed into a massive serpent, a man with above-average height can soon become a towering giant. As those stories get passed along from generation to generation, the true details become filtered out and we are left with the hyperbole, making the myth all the more thrilling, albeit still not entirely fictional. We may not even realize it, but this instinctive tendency to massage, twist and tweak the truth through the sharing of fables has impacted our present understanding of the world. Some of what we believe to be myth based on simply hearing it as part of a bedtime story might not have been entirely made up. This list contains 10 creatures who have served as the basis for fantastical stories and lore passed down through both literary and oral history. But on top of being firmly entrenched in the imaginations of those who have heard the stories, these creatures – or some less dramatized variation of them – also happen to have existed in real life. Take the legend of the Imoogi, for example, a serpent that has long been a staple of Korean folklore with a similar-looking relative whose giant fossilized remains were discovered just eight years ago. We modern humans are skeptical by nature, generally distrustful of what we hear from others, a trait that has only grown in an age of instant communication where the line between legitimate information and hearsay presented as fact has been blurred. Most of us have grown accustomed to a lifetime of being regaled by thrilling stories, only to find those stories to have little basis in reality. For these 10 familiar tales, then, it might be worth setting your skepticism aside and appreciating that these remarkable, ostensibly fictionalized accounts do, in fact, carry a firm basis in reality. Yep, these things are actually real, which is pretty terrifying to think that we once – and, in some cases, could still – live amongst them.

Erasure by Exclusion: How Art Schools and Institutions Uphold White Supremacy
The art world is a microcosm of the society we live in. It should come as no surprise then that structural racism and capitalism permeates how we look at art; it informs the work that gets prioritized as important and taught in the many classrooms that shape the arts for generations to come. This panel discussion will address the inherent issues of the structures in place at institutions of higher learning that seem content or complacent in continuing to teach an art history that is void of the intellectual and avant-garde contributions by artists of color. Together we will examine cultural erasure and discuss the nature of this oversight with the intention of identifying solutions to the problem. Robin J.

Here be Dragons 2018: Track A
Sea monsters such as the kraken, prister, and rosmarus indicated uncharted territory on elaborate new maps of the world in medieval times. Despite many advances in mapping technology and data acquisition in the last 500 years, our ocean remains largely uncharted and poorly understood. Here be Dragons convened explorers, innovators, artists, scientists, and storytellers to identify the uncharted territories that still exist in ocean exploration and storytelling. In response, MIT students will work with explorers to develop and present collaborative projects to deploy new and emerging technologies in the field that address gaps in our understanding and sharing of the ocean. Select proposals will be funded for Rapid Field Deployments. In collaboration with the National Geographic Society and New England Aquarium.

40 Years of Designing and Making Furniture
Google Tech Talk January 11, 2016 (click "show more" for more info) Presented by Jonathan Cohen ABSTRACT For this talk I have prepared images, details and anecdotes from forty years of handmade furniture making. In presenting them to you, I intend to seduce you with the staggering beauty that is the wood itself, elucidate any curiosities you might have about various techniques, and regale you with stories of famous clients and surprising moments. I studied design at Cornell, spent a few years working around the world on a cruise ship, and then decided, much like some of you, to head west and find my fortune in the beautiful Northwest. (Fortune. Hah! We are speaking of woodworking here). This became a torrid love affair with the possibilities of this most magnificent of materials. That affair continues to this day. Hopefully, some of that ardor will pass on to you. About the Speaker Jonathan Cohen studied design at Cornell, and afterwards decided, probably like many of you, that his future lay in the beautiful Northwest. At 22, he cluelessly dove in to the poorly remunerated, but astronomically satisfying work of designing and hand building furniture. The original plan was to dance around in that for a couple of years, and head back to grad school. Unexpectedly, his work became his grad school. Nearly 40 years later, he has still not come up for air, and he still does not represent a financial challenge to either Larry Page or Sergey Brin ( or Donald Trump for that matter). CV synopsis: BA Cornell 1978. Opened eponymous studio in 1980. Almost immediately started creating large bodies of work for many collectors such as the co-founder of Microsoft, the founder of Pilchuck, and, more recently, several executives at Google, and hundreds of individual pieces and smaller commissions for people across the U.S. and Europe. Was represented by 7 galleries across the U.S. Had 3 sold-out one-man gallery shows and participated in countless group shows; lectured at the UW school of Architecture for 18 years; continues building one-off pieces of his own design. His work can be seen at jonathancohenfinewoodworking.com

This session reveals all the lies within the textbooks. Introduction: 0:45 Lie #1 Grand Canyon did not form millions of years ago. It was formed rapidly by a flood: 9:00 Lie #2 Geologic Column does not exist, it only exist in the book Principles of Geology by Charles Lyell. The layers were made in the flood by hydrologic sorting: 18:11 Lie #3 Fossils are dated by the Layers and Layers are dated by the Fossils, circular reasoning, is not a valid evidence for evolution and is simply flawed thinking. : 25:00 Lie #4 Index fossils are not millions of years ago, some are alive today! Like the Trilobites, Graptolites and Coelacanth.: 30:53 Lie #5 The layers are not different ages and are not as old as evolutionists claim it to be as proven by dinosaur blood cells in fossils, petrified trees standing through the geologic column even upside down (polystrate fossils): 34:45 Lie #6 It does not take millions and millions of years for petrification to occur: 35:32 Lie #7 Evolution (the first five forms of evolution) is a lie only micro-evolution (variation) has been scientifically proven: 40:48 Lie # 8 Mutations is not evidence for evolution or a catalyst for it. There is no such things as a good mutation, that's an oxymoron, it is always bad! Consequences of Evolution Theory and its legacy: 52:26 Lie #9 Natural Selection does not cause evolution. It only selects it never creates. The pepper moth deception/ hoax is one of many used to propagate this lie: 58:42 Lie #10 Homology argument is a lie. It uses comparative anatomy between species as a means to prove evolution. On the other hand, it only proves that there is a common design or intelligent design, the designer being God: 1:07:13 Lie #11 Evidence from the Development of animals from conception. This belief was enforced by Ernst Haeckel who created the biogenetic law. Dr. Hovind reveals that this law was a hoax and embryos do not have gills like a fish. : 1:10:18 Lie #12 Humans are not humans at conception - This is a lie originated from the biogenetic law and embryology. This is the foundation for legalizing abortions: 1:14:30 Adolph Hitler, the Holocaust and Evolution. The fact that evolution was the basis for Hitler killing the Jews. : 1:26:40 Lie #13 The appendix, wisdom teeth, the inside corner of the eye and tailbone (coccyx) being described as vestigial (unnecessary) are all lies. All are important and serve a purpose: 1:31:46 Lie #14 Evolutionist use the claim that whales have a vestigial pelvis, this is false, those little bones were termed vestiges but were found to be used to aid reproduction: 1:33:08 Lie #15 Snakes have little claws which have been claimed to be vestigial but have been found to also aid in reproduction. : 1:35:44 Lie #16 The eyeball is too complicated to have been a product of evolution. The design of a creation demands a designer: 1:41:55 Lie #17 Hair on a bacteria (flagellum) acts like a motor. It is also too complicated to even remotely be made by evolution: 1:49:10 Lie #18 There is no evidence that we came from primordial soup or that life came from non-living material.: 1:50:33 Lie #19 Miller and Urey experiment failed at ever producing life, it only proved how remarkably impossible it is: 1:52:39 Lie #20 The evolutionary trees and trees of life are not science but are based on pure imagination: 2:00:54 Lie #21 Smaller in not simple. A 'simple cell' is an oxymoron: 2:02:25 Lie #22 DNA does not prove evolution and never will! : 2:05:42 Lie #23 All life does not have a common ancestor: 2:08:32 Lie #24 There is no proof of evolution in fossils: 2:18:42 Lie #25 The evolution of the horse is fake and has been proven wrong: 2:25:17 Lie #26 Arranging similar animals in a certain order does not prove evolution: 2:28:01 Lie #27 Everything in evolution is backwards to the bible, the two don't mix. Reptile to bird evolution has no evidence. 2:30:00 How to fight these lies in the text books?: 2:34:07 Please pray for Dr. Hovind who has been incarcerated for standing on God's side.

If Jesus Christ’s resurrection is true, why does he have TWO tombs?
Where did Jesus Christ's resurrection happen? Was it at what is now The Garden Tomb, or The Church of the Holy Sepulchre? This video examines the historical evidence and demonstrates that neither location is likely, because knowledge of the location of Christ's tomb was lost. In fact, information about Christ's tomb is strangely absent from early church history and the writings of early Christian historians and theologians, which raises some disturbing questions about the Resurrection itself. Time Subject 00:00 Introduction 02:10 Evidence for The Garden Tomb 02:46 Evidence for the Church of the Holy Sepulchre 04:16 Location of Christ's tomb was forgotten 10:49 Three theories why Christ's tomb was forgotten 11:32 Theory 1 - Romans destroyed Jerusalem landmarks 13:09 Theory 2 - Jerusalem church ceased to exist because of Roman destruction 16:30 Theory 3 - Tomb was not important to Christians 20:51 Summary of historical and Biblical evidence 21:52 Holy Fire at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre 23:37 Conclusion We welcome your comments.
