New Tool Pinpoints Genetic Sources Of Disease
Scientists have shown a connection between the “map” of genes in the genome and the “map” of reversible chemical changes to DNA, the epigenome.  Their finding could help disease trackers find patterns in those overlays that could offer clues to the causes of and possible treatments for complex genetic conditions.

Icaronycteris index - extinct echolocating species of bat from the Eocene, about 54.8 million years ago. This is one of the oldest and most complete bat fossils known to science. It’s incredible that these prehistoric flittermice have been around for so long, having shown up 11 million years after the dinosaurs were wiped out. (at The Field Museum)

Easter Sunday Spiritual Jeopardy

As Easter Sunday approaches, I wanted to start a game! I will have a series of questions, starting with the first ones here. Many feel my soul is in jeopardy, because of my agnostic, Atheist views, so lets play Spiritual Jeopardy! 

Now if the bible is the true word of God, then each book should say the same thing, without contradiction! This game is open to all, feel free to test your bible knowledge, believer and non believer alike. Now this should be simple really, yes this will be fun! Note the answers to the questions, will be below the question itself, that is if you do not know the answer. You can cheat, but try to remember what the bible said. Happy Ishtar everyone. :)
