70 years ago, a Nazi train never reached its destination, and according to a team of treasure hunters, it has finally been found. However, a team of scientists disagree.
According to CNN, the treasure hunters remained firm on their previous claim that they came across evidence that a tunnel in Poland houses the lost Nazi train carrying loads of gold. During a news conference on Tuesday, treasure hunter Piotr Koper said, "We have a train and a short tunnel."
However, scientists from Krakow University of Science and Technology, who happen to have the same purpose as Koper and his crew, said, "We may have a tunnel, but there is no train." more >>
Tyson Fury took the boxing world by surprise after he defeated Wladimir Klitschko to win three heavyweight title belts, including the WBA, WBO, and the IBF. But after just days of reigning supreme, the Briton has been stripped by the IBF of his title for declining to defend the title against mandatory challenger and number one ranked fighter, Vyacheslav Glazkov.
The move to strip Fury of his belt just days after winning it, highlights the frustrating nature of boxing for many fans and undermines the multi-belt system. Fury couldn't possibly put himself in two fights at once and as he already signed a deal with Klitschko prior to their title match, giving the right to the Ukrainian to demand a rematch should he be defeated, Fury was forced to choose to break his deal with Klitschko and take on the relatively unknown Glazkov, or to honor his contract with Klitschko and give boxing fans what they wanted - a rematch against the former champ.
Fury (25-0, 18 KOs) would be a massive favorite to defeat Glazkov, withe the challenger already suffering three lopsided defeats in his career. But with Fury no longer the champ, the IBF has told Glazkov to fight Charles Martin for the vacant title in a bout that couldn't be further from capturing the imagination of the boxing public. more >>
Images of executions and severed heads are just some of the graphic images found on the phones of hundreds of Syrian refugees flocking to Norway.
According to the Norwegian Police Immigration Service some refugees had ISIS flags and other Islamic State paraphernalia in their possession. Images of dead children and other victims of war were found on phones.
The Daily Mail reports that the heightened security and additional searches are because of newfound fears that ISIS could be smuggling foreign fighters into Western European nations. The region has been wracked by the new concerns after the November Paris terrorist attacks. more >>
Evolutionary biologist and atheist author Richard Dawkins has argued that simply refusing to have sex is comparable to aborting an unborn baby.
"How dare you refuse to have sex? Don't you realise you might be depriving a baby of life? Murderer!" Dawkins wrote in a Twitter message, as part of an ongoing debate over the morality of abortion and when human life begins.
When asked by Twitter users to explain when he believes life actually begins, Dawkins replied, "It doesn't begin. That's the whole point," and directed people to read his 2011 article for New Statesman titled, "The Tyranny of the Discontinuous Mind." more >>
Forensic science just revealed the most realistic face of Jesus ever and it's far different than the fair-skinned, long-haired and blue-eyed Savior most of the Western world has grown accustomed to.
According to Esquire, British scientists, assisted by Israeli archeologists, have re-created what they believe is the most accurate image of the face of Jesus in human history. And they have managed to do this as a result of forensic anthropology, which uses methods similar to those police have developed to solve crimes.
Richard Neave, a medical artist retired from The University of Manchester in England, is behind the project and he uses cultural references for the Bible to pin down certain specifics about how Jesus would have looked. more >>
