Paul appeared on John Stossel's program on Fox Business Friday to talk about free-markets, the presidential race, and to promote his new book Our President's & Their Prayers: Proclamations of Faith by America's Leaders.

Answers in Genesis CEO and President Ken Ham has argued that atheism is a religion that is rising in America, and is being openly supported by government-run schools.
"AiG points out that as a non-theistic religion, atheism is a belief system that attempts to explain everything in our world, including how the universe came to be and how one should relate to his fellow humans. As such, it's a naturalistic, comprehensive worldview (as opposed to a supernatural one) often referred to as secular humanism," Ham wrote on his Facebook page on Wednesday.
"Generations of our young people, including many in our churches, have been educated in government-run schools in the religious view of naturalism, which in reality is atheism," he added. more >>
Touted as the world's best-selling manga series in history, "One Piece" is back with Chapter 806 released on November 4, Thursday. In the chapter, according to Design and Trend, fans will likely learn more about the mysterious Captain Jack. In chapter 805, it was revealed that Captain Jack was the one who left Mokomo Dukedom, a city found in Zou, in ruins. He was also seen trying to free Doflamingo, the notorious pirate captain who is also an enemy of the series' main protagonist, Monkey D. Luffy.
"One Piece" follows the story of a young man named Monkey D. Luffy, who got elastic or rubber-like powers from eating a Devil Fruit. Luffy leads a pirate crew called the Straw Hat Pirates and with them, he sets on an adventure to find the world's ultimate treasure called "One Piece." If he has possession of this, he will become the next Pirate King.

Now solidly a frontrunner in the presidential race, Dr. Ben Carson delivered two speeches at Cornerstone Church in Madison, Tennessee, Sunday, where he defended his Old Earth creationist worldview and American political liberties.
Speaking at the megachurch, Carson said his creationist views aided his career as a surgeon and medical doctor. The Tennessean reported that Carson's speech alternated between the style of a sermon and stump speech, while heavily critiquing some forms of evolutionary theory.
