Daily 2 Cents: No Mouth...No Face! -- Christ's Burial Place Exposed -- World Wildlife Populations Plunge 60%

No Mouth...No Face!

“I was on my way walking to the Dollar General store one early night and when I got ready to cross the street to where I was going. There was a black car with a person parked on side of the Dollar General. The car had its light on. Inside, the person had black hair and had on shades so I couldn’t see if the person had eyes. The person was really white like milk white. But, anyway, the person was just looking straight ahead and wasn’t looking around. The person was moving a little bit so it wasn’t fake. I saw no mouth, no nose, no facial hair... just smooth white. I couldn't tell if it had ears because of the long black hair and shades but was just parked and sitting there with the car light on inside like as if it wanted to be seen for some reason. And it's weird how it just so happened to be at night when not many people were out like as if it was planned that way. I was scared and creeped out.

When I came out of the Dollar General, I went home by walking all the way around the block to not pass that person. I'm saying person... its more like being. It was scary and creepy. Sorry, this was so long ago I thought I was seeing things... I know I'm not the only one who has seen that. I never told anyone because I felt that people would think I was nuts."

Christ's Burial Place Exposed for First Time in Centuries

JERUSALEM, ISRAEL- For the first time in centuries, scientists have exposed the original surface of what is traditionally considered the tomb of Jesus Christ. Located in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in the Old City of Jerusalem, the tomb has been covered by marble cladding since at least 1555 A.D., and most likely centuries earlier.

"The marble covering of the tomb has been pulled back, and we were surprised by the amount of fill material beneath it,” said Fredrik Hiebert, archaeologist-in-residence at the National Geographic Society, a partner in the restoration project. “It will be a long scientific analysis, but we will finally be able to see the original rock surface on which, according to tradition, the body of Christ was laid."

According to Christian tradition, the body of Jesus Christ was laid on a shelf or “burial bed” hewn from the side of a limestone cave following his crucifixion by the Romans in A.D. 30 or possibly 33. Christian belief says Christ was resurrected after death, and women who came to anoint his body three days after the burial reported that no remains were present.

World Wildlife Populations Plunge 60%

OSLO (Reuters) - Worldwide populations of mammals, birds, fish, amphibians and reptiles have plunged by almost 60 percent since 1970 as human activities overwhelm the environment, the WWF conservation group said on Thursday.

An index compiled with data from the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) to measure the abundance of biodiversity was down 58 percent from 1970 to 2012 and would fall 67 percent by 2020 on current trends, the WWF said in a report.

The decline is yet another sign that people have become the driving force for change on Earth, ushering in the epoch of the Anthropocene, a term derived from "anthropos", the Greek for "human" and "-cene" denoting a geological period.

Conservation efforts appear to be having scant impact as the index is showing a steeper plunge in wildlife populations than two years ago, when the WWF estimated a 52 percent decline by 2010.

"Wildlife is disappearing within our lifetimes at an unprecedented rate," Marco Lambertini, Director General of WWF International, said in a statement of the group's Living Planet Report, published every two years.

"Biodiversity forms the foundation of healthy forests, rivers and oceans," he said in a statement. "We are entering a new era in Earth's history: the Anthropocene," he said. WWF is also known as the World Wide Fund for Nature.

The index tracks about 14,200 populations of 3,700 species of vertebrates - creatures that range in size from pea-sized frogs to 30-metre (100 ft) long whales.

The rising human population is threatening wildlife by clearing land for farms and cities, the WWF's report said. Other factors include pollution, invasive species, hunting and climate change.

But there were still chances to reverse the trends, it said.

"Importantly ... these are declines, they are not yet extinctions," said Professor Ken Norris, Director of Science at ZSL.

Deon Nel, WWF global conservation director, told Reuters it wasn't all bad news.

"I don't speak at all about doom and gloom – we do see a lot of positive signs," Nel said.

One hopeful sign is a global agreement by almost 200 nations last year to curb climate change could, for instance, help protect tropical forests, slow a spread of deserts and curb an acidification of the seas caused by a build-up of carbon dioxide.

And a 2015 U.N. plan for sustainable development by 2030, seeking to end poverty with policies that safeguard the environment, would also help if properly implemented.

Also, some species are recovering. Last month, the giant panda was taken off an endangered list after a recovery in China.
