Proven Way to Increase the Life Expectancy of an ALS Patient by Three Times the Expected Norm

Is it true that ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, causes those diagnosed with the disease to die within 5 years of their diagnose? The answer is yes, if the patient doesn’t get the right care. But the right care is not something that insurance plans pay for,  as extending life is simply not their goal. The average cost of caring for a person with ALS over the course of the disease is easily 2 million dollars, but by spending money on the proper care of a patient with ALS, the individual’s life can be extended by up to fifteen years or three times as much.…

REPORT: Aron Hakodesh is Hidden in Ethiopian Church; Researchers Claim to Have Seen Items Used in Bais Hamikdash

The US-based Bible Archaeology Search and Exploration Institute (BASE) has announced that its scholars have (allegedly) pinpointed the location of the Aron Hakodesh from the Bais Hamikdash.

According to the BASE archaeologists, the Ark, a chest said to contain the two stone tablets inscribed with the Aseres Hadibros, was first shipped out to Egypt and then taken to Ethiopia.

“As unusual as this may sound, the BASE team has uncovered compelling evidence that the Ark may well have been spirited up the Nile River to an eventual resting place in the remote highlands of ancient Kush–modern-day Ethiopia,” BASE said, noting that while their theory is not 100 percent foolproof, it has “strong potential.”

The researchers claim that “a sect of Jews driven by King Manasseh from Israel took the Ark with them and transported it to Egypt from where they eventually sailed up the Nile to Ethiopia”.…
