Archaeologists find 2,000-year-old 'lost' street built by Pontius Pilate in Jerusalem as a 'pilgrim's route' through the holy city

What the Weather Channel and MSM don't admit-Hurricanes have been worse in the past

Don't believe the hype about Climate change, global warming, and the deadliness hurricane garbage that you are assaulted with daily in the media.  Take a look....  Also remember before the 1960's we didn't even have satellites and ways to measure some storms, and we didn't have 10 million people in harm's way building on ocean beaches. Remember that thing about 'building your houses on sand?"  Jesus knew what would happen 2,000 years ago!
