"The large number of multiple-burial sites, some containing skeletons of dwarfs and deformed children accompanied by ornate grave goods, suggests that human sacrifice was a custom in Europe between 28,000 and 10,000 years ago, says biologist Vincenzo Formicola of the University of Pisa in Italy.
"These findings point to the possibility that human sacrifices were part of the ritual activity of these populations," writes Formicola.
"Elaborate burials, selected individuals, rich ornamentation, and site of inhumation continue to raise questions... and stimulate reflections about social organization, conceptions of life and death, and the perception of diversity," writes Formicola.
Housley said that evidence of cannibalism has been found at sites 12,000 years ago in the same area, so if Formicola's conclusions are correct it could be part of a pattern." CBSnews
Many may be shocked at such findings, however, Christians should not be. Such atrocities are the rule and not the exception for man without the grace of God. "Left to itself, human nature tends to death, and utter apostasy from God, however plausible it may look externally." Card. Newman.
Historically, it was only Christianity that elevated human life, and man from the depths of such evil. Lest we doubt the veracity of such a claim, one can look at the fact that post-Christian Europe (and most of Western "civilization") has come full circle and is now once again engaging in Read More...
This technology will no doubt push the West into the diabolical realm of sex selection. Any limitation on the right to abort --even for sex selection --will be seen as an infringement on the woman's right to choose. The irony is that a woman's right to choose will ultimately kill women. The death and destruction of feminism has come full circle.
From The London Paper: "Women in Britain can now discover the gender of their unborn baby just six weeks into their pregnancy with special DNA testing kits being sold over the internet.
International company DNA Worldwide is selling testing kits allowing parents in the UK to find out the sex of their baby a month and a half after conception, according to its website.
The kit is likely to fuel the controversy about the ethics of abortions as it could allow couples to "play God" and abort children if they are not of the gender they want.
Couples can pay just £189.95 over the internet for the kit, which will then be sent through the post complete with a prepaid return envelope.

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Supreme Court upheld the nationwide ban on a controversial abortion procedure Wednesday, handing abortion opponents the long- awaited victory they expected from a more conservative bench.
The 5-4 ruling said the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act that Congress passed and President Bush signed into law in 2003 does not violate a woman's constitutional right to an abortion.
The Washington State Board of Pharmacy has ruled that pharmacies have a duty to fill all "lawful" prescriptions, despite an individual pharmacist's objections to a drug. Thus, pharmacists have lost the right to freedom of conscience and must dispense the morning after abortion pill.
"Moving forward, pharmacists with personal objections to a drug must get a co-worker to fill the order. Failing that, they are duty-bound to fill it themselves. Bottom line: A patient must be able to get her prescription filled in the same pharmacy visit."
To refuse to dispense the pill now endangers one's employment and livelihood. To dispense it endangers one's immortal soul. The judicially created false "right" of a women to kill her child now trumps Read More...
"The Next Magazine, a weekly publication from Hong Kong, reported that infant corpses and fetuses have become the newest supplements for health and beauty in China. Not only is the placenta considered a beauty remedy, but also aborted fetuses are much sought after delicacies. In Guangdong, gourmet body parts are in high demand and can even be purchased through hospitals. The magazine's investigations into this form of cannibalism took them to Liaoning province.
"According to The Next Magazine, during a banquet hosted by a Taiwanese businessman, a servant Ms Liu from Liaoning province on the mainland inadvertently revealed the habit of eating infants/fetuses in Liaoning province and her intention to return for the supplement due to health concerns. The Taiwanese women present were horrified.
"Ms Liu also disclosed that even though people can afford the human parts there are still waiting lists and those with the right connections get the "highest quality" human parts,
‘Dump your children here’ box to stop mothers from killing their babies:
"Desperate mothers are being urged to drop their unwanted babies through hatches at hospitals in an effort to halt a spate of infanticides that has shocked Germany.
At least 23 babies have been killed so far this year, many of them beaten to death or strangled by their mothers before being dumped on wasteland and in dustbins... Experts believe that the true figure is even higher.
"I think you're strong, smart, thoughtful and caring. I believe in you and your ability to make the best decision. I think you did the right thing."
From NEWSMAX: Group Launches Post-Abortion E-Cards
A nonprofit organization has unveiled a series of electronic greeting cards that concerned friends and relatives can send to a woman after she chooses to have an abortion.
Like Exhale's confidential talk line for women who have had abortions, the six e-cards available on the group's Web site were designed to be nonpartisan and encompass the range of someone's potential responses to going through an abortion.
"Women having abortions are calling our line because often they don't have someone to talk to — it's a stigmatized issue," said Aspen Baker, founder and executive director of Oakland-based Exhale.
One card expresses sympathy, offering the gentle reminder that, "As you grieve, remember that you are loved." Another provides encouragement for someone who "did the right thing." Yet another strikes a religious tone with the thought that "God will never leave you or forsake you."
An E-card and a nonjudgmental hotline is the world's answer to the pain and torture that comes from abortion and mortal sin. No amount of confessions via a secular hotline will relieve these women of the burden of such a heinous sin. They need divine intervention. Only Jesus through His Church can loose these women from their sins.
