Relatively few think China has handled the pandemic well, although it still receives considerably better reviews than the U.S. response."

In bottom place was Brazil, closely followed by Mexico, Colombia, Iran and the United States."

"Bad History: For the Love of God, Easter does not come from Ishtar

Easter was originally a celebration of Ishtar

Except no it wasn't. If you want to trace the roots of Easter, you'll find in based on Jewish Passover (Pesach) the celebration of the holy spirit protecting the first born children of the Hebrews during the final plague in the book of Genesis' Exodus story."


Happy Passover!
