The arrival of Jesus triggered a complicated interrelated set of signs and wonders. These signs seem to me to have characteristics of the technical equipment and setup of a concert presentation of the Messiah oratorio or a play with many acts and scenes—on a hemisphere-wide or world-wide scale.

My testimony has been strengthened as I have witnessed and studied the annual display of this very unique comet, which has great importance in religious and American history.
Paul Davies does not appear to be a Christian or a conventional theist in any normal sense of such terms. He is simply someone who pays attention to the data of physics and to the conditions apparently required for the appearance of life and who finds what he has found to be rather strange.
An asteroid about the size of the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, 2,717 feet tall, whizzed by the earth at about 7:54 p.m ET on Saturday, September 14, 2019. Fortunately, the asteroid was actually quite far away at 3.3 million miles or about 9 times further away than the Moon. But the way it was reported might lead one to believe we narrowly missed a cataclysmic event.
A new study from researchers at Brigham Young University and Pennsylvania State University provides the most accurate estimate of the number of Earth-like planets in the universe. The team looked at the frequency of planets that are similar to Earth in size and in distance from their host star, stars similar to our Sun. Knowing the rate that these potentially habitable planets occur will be important for designing future astronomical missions to characterize nearby rocky planets around Sun-like stars that could support life.
A new BYU study details first global analysis of nematodes--a creature which represents 4 out of every 5 animals on earth. Discoveries include something that may help us better address climate change.
Surprisingly, the end of the “Little Ice Age,” a more than 500 year-long cold climatic period and the start of a much warmer modern climatic period are closely synchronized with the Pioneer Trek to the Great Salt Lake Basin under the leadership of the Prophet Brigham Young. The pioneers considered being able to plant, grow, and harvest sufficient food for the 4,400 saints in 1848 in the valley a miracle. This miracle included the remarkable battle between the “Mormon Crickets” and the Seagulls.
