  1. Tour With The Darwinists !

    This topic is for miscellaneous darwinism-related information in sha Allah.. Don't you understand how microbes turned to humans ???!!!! You need to educate yourself on biology... Wait ! http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v496/n7446/full/496419a.html Philip Ball’s opinion piece in this week’s Nature, the most popular science magazine in the world, is news not because he stated that we don’t fully understand how evolution works at the molecular level, but because he urged his fellow evolutionists to admit it. On this 60th anniversary of the discovery of the DNA double helix, Ball reviews a few of the recent findings that have rebuked the evolution narrative that random mutations created the biological world. But it’s a Fact Anyway ?!
  2. Many women won’t want to put up with a scratchy-faced partner. But think twice before you tell your man to reach for a razor, because beards and moustaches might be beneficial for men’s health. This is still, it has to be said, an emerging field of thinking — but here, with tongue half in bearded cheek, we reveal the health upside of men’s facial hair… PROTECTS AGAINST THE SUN A fuzzy face offers significant protection against sun damage and skin cancer, according to a recent study from the University of Southern Queensland published in the journal Radiation Protection Dosimetry. The researchers found that the parts of the face covered by beards and moustaches on average had a third less exposure to harmful UV rays compared with hair-free areas. The study was conducted in the Outback sun with mannequins and stick-on beards (1.5in and 3.5 in long), with a clean-shaven mannequin used as a comparison. The researchers used dosimetric techniques, which measure the amount of rays or radiation absorbed in a given time. Their results showed the beards appeared to offer 90 to 95 per cent protection against the sun, depending on length of hair. Generally hair offers good protection against the sun, says Dr Nick Lowe, a leading London-based dermatologist. That’s why women have much less sun damage if their hair covers the back of their necks and the sides of their faces. ‘It’s also a question of the thickness of hair,’ he says. ‘It’s similar to an SPF factor — the higher the hair density and thickness, the higher the SPF. ‘I frequently see the classic example of this when I work in southern California. ‘A balding, bearded surfer will have more sun damage and pre-cancers on their heads than they will on the top of their faces.’ Another theory is that coarse, curly beard hair breaks up the sun’s rays, says Iain Sallis, a consultant trichologist. ‘Light travels in straight lines, but when it hits curly hair the light waves refract, or break up, so they hardly ever reach the skin underneath.’ It also depends on how long the beard has been growing. Sun damage can also occur when it reflects off surfaces below the face — such as pale sand or water — so hair growth on men’s faces will add to the protection under the chin and neck. However, Dr Lowe recommends men with facial hair use a thin sun lotion or spray that isn’t too greasy over the hair because a lot of beards are not very dense. MAY PREVENT ASTHMA ATTACKS Men whose asthma is triggered by pollen and dust could find facial hair helps reduce their asthma symptoms Men whose asthma is triggered by pollen and dust could find facial hair —– or more specifically, a big moustache —– helps reduce their asthma symptoms. Moustaches that reach the nasal area may stop allergens going up the nose and being inhaled by the lungs, says Carol Walker, hair medical expert and owner of Birmingham Trichology Centre. Dr Rob Hicks, a London-based GP, thinks it’s only pollen — which is sticky — that might be trapped this way, preventing it getting into the airways. ‘Dust particles are microscopic,’ he says. Even if moustaches did trap dust, then a downside, according to Dr Hicks, is that it can build up and it just takes one wipe or knock before it goes into the nose. ‘In theory, a moustache could stop things that trigger asthma entering the airways, but it would have to be a big one,’ says Dr Felix Chua, a consultant respiratory physician at the London Clinic, Harley Street. SLOWS DOWN AGEING Over time, facial hair can help keep the skin young and in a good condition. The hair stops water leaving the skin — keeping it moisturised — by protecting it from the wind, which dries the skin and disturbs the protective skin barrier, says Dr Lowe. ‘Also, if you put a moisturiser on then it will stay put under a beard or moustache much better than on an exposed or shaven skin where it can be more easily rubbed off.’ The simple presence of hair follicles on the face also helps, as do the sebaceous glands in the skin that coat the hair in protective oils. Anywhere hair follicles and oil glands are present — including the chin, lower face and sides of the — makes the skin thicker (and men have more hair follicles in this area than women do). ‘Thicker skin is more resistant to damage, even if the man doesn’t have a beard, compared with women, whose skin tends to be thinner and have fewer hair follicles,’ says Dr Lowe. HELPS FIGHT OFF COUGHS Thick beards that have grown under the chin and neck will raise the temperature of the neck and may help battle colds, says Carol Walker. ‘Hair is an insulator that keeps you warm. Long, full beards that trap the cold air and raise the temperature of the neck are going to be an added bonus when you’re under the weather,’ says Carol. ‘When you have a sore throat, the body builds up temperature to kill the virus. ‘It has to run its course, but the warmer you keep yourself and the more fluids you drink equip you to fight it better. ‘Hair around the chin and neck adds another layer of protection.’ Facial hair can act as a physical barrier to cold temperature, says Dr Chua. ‘A higher body temperature can help a cough, though you need to look at the underlying causes to treat it, too. ‘I’ve had patients who have said that if they wrap up by using something like a scarf their cough gets a bit better. It’s possible that a beard could also do this.’ PREVENTS NASTY SKIN RASHES Not shaving means no more nasty rashes. Shaving is usually the main cause of bacterial infections in the beard area, says Dr Martin Wade, consultant dermatologist at the London Skin and Hair Clinic. ‘It can lead to razor rash, ingrown hairs and conditions such as folliculitis (infection of the hair follicles that causes spots), so men would benefit from growing a beard,’ he says. ‘Men need to wash and trim their beards and moustaches regularly and make sure debris from food isn’t left around,’ adds Carol Walker.

  3. Fossils, "proof" Of Evolution ?!

    Definitions: Fossils (from Latin fossus, literally "having been dug up") الحفرية are the preserved remains or traces of animals , plants, and other organisms from the remote past. Fossil record,السجل الحفري history of life as documented by fossils, the remains or imprints of the organisms from earlier geological periods preserved in sedimentary rock. Paleontology or palaeontology علم المتحجرات أو الأحياء القديمة أو المستحاثات is the scientific study of prehistoric life. Archaeology, or archeology علم الآثار(from Greek "ancient"), is the study of human activity in the past, primarily through the recovery and analysis of the material culture and environmental data that they have left behind, which includes artifacts, architecture, biofacts and cultural landscapes (the archaeological record). Geochronology التاريخ الجيولوجي is the science of determining the age of rocks, fossils, and sediments Anthropology علم الإنسان is the "science of humanity." Uniformitarianism is the assumption that the same natural laws and processes that operate in the universe now, have always operated in the universe in the past and apply everywhere in the universe. Phyletic gradualism is a model of evolution which theorizes that evolution occurs through the accumulation of slight modifications over long periods of time. Punctuated Equilibrium is a theory to explain the absence of transitional forms in the fossil record, which are predicted by Darwinian evolution, It proposes that most species will exhibit little net evolutionary change for most of their geological history, remaining in an extended state called stasis. When significant evolutionary change occurs, the hypothesis proposes that it is generally restricted to rare and geologically rapid events of branching speciation called cladogenesis. Cladogenesis is thought to be the process by which a species splits into two distinct species, rather than one species gradually transforming into another.
  4. Islam And Fluoride !

    Assalam alaikum I've read this recently and want to share it with you: After coming across an article today I uncovered a groundbreaking link between Islam and Fluoride. (Oh dear!). Yep, it seems the good Prophet (Peace be upon him) was utilizing the same tactics as those evil NWOers that have been trying to kill you all off while simultaneously turning you into mindless drones with low sperm counts. Alternatively, one might consider this a pretty cool, natural way of cleaning one's teeth (But I posted it in skunk works for artistic freedom): Miswak The miswak (miswaak, siwak, sewak, السواك) is a teeth cleaning twig made from a twig of the Salvadora persica tree (known as arak in Arabic). A traditional alternative to the modern toothbrush, it has a long, well-documented history and is reputed for its medicinal benefits.[1] It also features prominently in Islamic hygienical jurisprudence. en.wikipedia.org... The Miswak twig is a popular tool for cleaning teeth (and other oral hygiene) used in the Arab world since before the times of Muhammed (Peace be upon him), although he did make it quite popular encouraging people to use it many times throughout the day. It's use is also reenforced in the hadiths (apparently). Salvadora Persica is in fact a small tree or shrub with a crooked trunk, seldom more than one foot in diameter, bark scabrous and cracked, whitish with pendulous extremities. The root bark is light brown and the inner surfaces are white, odour like cress and taste is warm and pungent. Chemically the air dried stem bark os S. Persica is extracted with 80% alcohol and then extracted with ether and run through exhaustive chemical procedures. This showed that it is composed of: 1. Trim ethyl amine 2. An alkaloid which may be salvadorine 3. Chlorides 4. High amounts of fluoride and silica 5. Sulphur 6. Vitamin C 7. Small amounts of Tannins, saponins, flavonoids & sterols Source A bunch of useful chemical can be found inside the curious twig, one of course, being fluoride. Study on fluoride levels found in the Miswak The highest F concentration at the approximal area was obtained after using the miswak impregnated in 3% NaF for 3 days compared with the other products (p < 0.05 or p < 0.01). To conclude, NaF-impregnated miswaks produced a rapid release of F in vitro as well as in vivo and may be an interesting vehicle for home care use for caries prevention in countries where they are used regularly.
