Is an Extra World Hidden

Scientists have long debated whether or not a mysterious ninth planet lurks at the edge of our solar system. Some astronomers think the existence of the alleged planet – which they claim is 10 times the size of Earth – explains the bizarre way some distant objects in space move. Now scientists have found new evidence that ‘Planet Nine’ exists by building simulations of the solar system with different sizes of the celestial body. They found that the unusual orbits of distant rocks in our system can be explained by the presence of a ninth planet with the dimensions scientists … Continue reading

Liberalism Is Suicidism

Asked to name the defining attributes of the America we wish to become, many liberals would answer that we must realize our manifest destiny since 1776, by becoming more equal, more diverse and more democratic — and the model for mankind’s future. Equality, diversity, democracy — this is the holy trinity of the post-Christian secular state at whose altars Liberal Man worships. But the congregation worshiping these gods is shrinking. And even Europe seems to be rejecting what America has on offer. In a retreat from diversity, Catalonia just voted to separate from Spain. The Basque and Galician peoples of … Continue reading
