DNA evidence has always been considered the “gold standard” of evidence in criminal cases.

USA: Here’s an example of a regulatory agency serving the industry not lthe people | 16Ago2010 19:02:47
US: Public meeting is held to hear complaints about groundwater toxicity from chemicals used in nearby gas wells. Oil companies are exempted from environmental regulations based on a 2005 EPA report that said these chemicals had no negative impact on groundwater. This is known as the "Halliburton Loophole." An EPA whistleblower who attended this meeting said the report was "scientifically unsound." There are publicly available studies documenting more than 1000 cases of groundwater contamination. [Here is another classic example of government agencies serving the very industries they are supposed to regulate.]

The Catholic Church’s belief about Genesis 1–11 has been in a muddle for a long time—ever since uniformitarianism and evolution came on the scene. This situation is similar to Protestant churches, sadly for both liberal and conservative ones. Within the ‘traditionalist’ churches, this book is a welcome addition to the book Genesis, Creation and Early Man by the Russian Orthodox heiromonk Seraphim Rose, who documented that the Church fathers of Eastern Orthodoxy from the fourth century until the present almost all taught a young earth, a literal six-day creation, a global Flood, and the origin of languages at the Tower of Babel. Warkulwiz’s book focuses on the traditional teachings of the Catholic Church from the early and medieval church fathers and comes to the same conclusions. The book was endorsed with a foreword by Bishop Robert Francis Vasa of Baker, Oregon.
