On the search for heavenly bread raining from the sky


Many have mined biblical verses for clues about the Old Testament substance. Adding to the puzzle are the other descriptions of the food in the Bible: on hot days, manna melted in the sun. If not gathered quickly enough, it rotted and bred worms. In Exodus, it’s referred to as “like coriander seed, white,” with a taste “like wafers made with honey.” Numbers, on the other hand, likens the flavor to “fresh oil” and describes how the Israelites “ground it in mills, or beat it in a mortar, and baked it in pans, and made cakes of it.”

To look for historical as well as scientific foundation in such fantastic encounters must be an arduous endeavour.

ccording to the Jewish mystical treatise known as the Zohar, the consumption of manna imparted sacred knowledge of the divine. Another Jewish text, The Book of Wisdom, even claims that the flavor of manna magically changed according to the tastes of the person who ate it.

Desert locusts haunting Egypt and Saudi-Arabia


(Speaking of the seven deadly plagues that were haunting Egypt after the Egyptian pharaoh didn't leave Moses' people go; we had a pink-coloured sea in Melbourne (close enough to red), and now we have a locust plague in Egypt. What's next, God? The death of the firstborn children? Come on, this ain't funny in the book either, and completely exaggerated)
“These locusts are normally present in low numbers in the desert and don’t cause a big problem. But following a large rainfall they can quickly multiply, eventually forming hopper bands or swarms of adults, composed of billions of individual locusts,” Cressman told The Media Line.

“Once they get into rain-fed crops on the edge of the desert, grown by poor farmers, they’re eating an entire livelihood, and then they move into the country and affect national food supplies,” he emphasized.

The FAO Commission for Controlling the Desert Locust in the Central Region (CRC), composed of 16 member countries, is co... show more

Egypt removes term limit for president


Egypt parliament overwhelmingly approves constitutional changes to remove term limits for President el-Sissi until 2034.

This is all the Associated Press has written about it. But as anyone can see all around the world, a presideny without term limits will always lead into authoritarianism because it allows one president to run as often as he or she wishes to. It leaves no limit to it, so that a change can hardly be made. The president's party can simply run with the same individual and a demographically corrupted country (at the moment, countries full of generians) will vote for this party because they always did so.
