Indian Christians attack Hindu

Beleaguered Christians in India have "run out of cheeks to be struck" a senior Anglican bishop declared yesterday, on hearing reports that a Christian mob had hacked a Hindu to death in the troubled state of Orissa. Dr Michael Nazir-Ali, the Bishop of Rochester, called for peace, and said that the murder, conducted by a knive-wielding mob of 50 Christians, could not be condoned. But he told The Times: ?For months now, scores of Christians have been killed, homes, convents and presbyteries have been burnt down to the ground." He said: "Now one Hindu has been killed, allegedly by Christians. We do not know under what circumstances but it suggests that the worm has turned and the Christian community has run out of cheeks to be struck." (Source)

Abortion, The Law & The Catholic Church

The Victorian Law Reform Commission (VLRC), the state's central law reform agency, recommended in March that proposed abortion reform legislation should require doctors who conscientiously object to abortions to refer patients to another provider. The government has followed the advice in its Abortion Law Reform Bill. Catholic Archbishop Denis Hart has said the clause would force Catholic doctors and hospitals to break the law, because they would not provide referrals for the purpose of abortions. (Source)

Girl kills herself over Big Bang fears

A teenage girl in India has reportedly killed herself out of fear the world was about to end because of the atom-smashing "Big Bang" experiment" conducted in Europe...But fears have been raised the experiment could create a black hole that would suck the Earth away, although the scientists involved insist the experiment is safe. Fears about the experiment had spread rapidly through the media in deeply religious India, The Daily Mail said. Thousands of people had rushed to temples to pray and fast while others savoured their favourite foods in anticipation of the world's end, the paper said. PERSONAL COMMENT: I am writing a book on this at the moment so I find this very relevant. The new atom smasher is an exciting equipment because it provides a new tool for Physicist to test out there Membrane Theory of the universe. The M Theory is a combination of The String Theory and the Theory of Super Gravity. If they can successfully smash atoms and are able to locate a graviton, disappearing to another dimension, it would be very good evidence to show that the theory is correct. If the theory is correct, then we can have an explanation behind what happened before the Big Bang. It will tie in many mysteries and we will have a scientific Theory of everything that Albert Einstein, himself, dedicated the last years of his life in finding.

Exercise 'tackles flawed memory'

Exercise may help improve mental performance in adults with mild memory problems, research suggests.... Writing in the journal, the researchers said:

"Unlike medication, which was found to have no significant effect on mild cognitive impairment at 36 months, physical activity has the advantage of health benefits that are not confined to cognitive function alone, as suggested by findings on depression, quality of life, falls, cardiovascular function, and disability."
