On Tuesday, December 20, 2005, ABC aired a special two-hour program entitled, "Heaven: Where Is It? How Do We Get There?"

Jolly Old St. Nick, indeed

  2. Gary F. Ehman

Contrary to what most people think, the trappings of Christmas are not based on Jesus Christ of the Bible, but are deeply rooted in pre-Christian oral legends, sanitized by theologians, historians and, in some instances, the editorial rooms of more modern times.

  2. Martin Fannin

Would you build your own house in a flood zone on ground below sea level? Most would not do this and if they did, they would lack common sense. How about a city?

  2. Gary F. Ehman

What do the terms "thalamocortical pathways," "nociception," "peripheral sensory receptors" and "asynchronous" have in common?
