Stunning images from the Hubble Space Telescope revealed the existence of weird structures on the planet Jupiter.
The Hubble Space Telescope spent 10 hours recording the appearance of Jupiter to create a stunning new map of the giant planet's atmosphere. The captured images allowed astronomers to measure the planet's Great Red Spot and see weird formations that have not been seen in decades, according to Discovery.
The Great Red Spot seen on Jupiter is actually a giant storm that has been stirring the southern equatorial region of the planet for some 300 years already. New discoveries indicate that the long duration storm is already weakening because the spot has been shrinking and is now 240 kilometers smaller compared to its size last year, the report details. more >>

Albert Mohler, president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, has suggested that the Church should not seek to convert homosexuals to heterosexuality.
During a news conference held by the seminary and the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors, Mohler said he was opposed to reparative therapy, which involves changing a person's sexual orientation from homosexuality to heterosexuality, dubbing it a "superficial" approach.
"The Christian Church has sinned against the LGBT community by responding to this challenge in a superficial way," said Mohler. "It's not something that is so simple as converting from homosexual to heterosexual, and from our Gospel-centered theological understanding that would not be sufficient." more >>
