Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default Epiphany: Ancient Christian Text Adds to Biblical Story of the Magi Traveling to Bethlehem for Birth of Jesus

An interesting story. So many questions have remained unresolved about the Magi:

*Where did they come from?
*How many were there? Three gifts = Three kings? Probably not.
*Did they have an entourage?
*When did they reach Jesus? Some accounts estimate up to two years after His birth.
*What was the clue that alerted them to Herod's intent?

Probably more questions now than answers.

In the Syriac text, the Magi are the descendants of Seth, who, according to the
Book of Genesis was Adam and Eve’s third son. Seth is a rather overlooked
character today compared to brothers Cain and Abel, but according to Landau,
early Christians and Jews were “fascinated” by him and considered him of
special importance. The Magi anticipate the star and its significance because of
a prophecy written down by Seth—which was first told to him by Adam—about
the coming of a star that would signal the birth of God in human form.
