Comment: I was trying to find any information on "Jimmy Hoffa" (A man
suspected of being murdered in connection with the mafia) His body was
said to be in many locations like under the NY Giant's stadium. His body
has never been found, this dates back to about 1970ish.

You could start by not sending unwanted e-mails to random people on the internet, asking them how to stop unwanted e-mails.

Comment: As I have just emailed one of your pages to my Mother-in-Law,
AGAIN, to disprove ANOTHER one of her forwards, I was wondering, who
starts these silly things in the first place?
Are there great hoards of lonely, bored, techno geeks out there who just
sit around making up wild tales?
Years ago, to get into a fraternity at Yale, pledges had to attempt to
get a letter published in Ann Landers. Is this the modern version of that
nonsense?
What is the pay off? I picture weird trolls guffawing over
mocha-latte-double-half-cafs in some wanna-be bistro as they compare notes
and imagine weirder trolls drooling over new and better opportunities to
get rich doing nothing.
I just don't get it. That says nothing. I don't get blogs, instant
messaging as opposed to the telephone or flash mabs either.
Sigh, over the hill and hopelessly out dated in my 40s. Who'd a thunk.
Thanks for your great site.

Comment: Your site is a terrific resource of information. I hope you'll
keep up the good work for years to come. I'd like to see some information
about stem cells included on your site. Are babies aborted for the purpose
of creating stem cells? Just what are stem cells and what are they not?
Does stem cell research involve "destroying life," as opponents claim, or
not?

Really? They did nothing BUT cancel their flights for that day? Then how did all those people in the airplanes die? Did they hijack the airplanes and crash them into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and into the ground in Pennsylvania themselves? Take-off to crash?

Mickey, I think the person snopes quoted meant that government officials cancelled their own flights, and left the rest of the air travellers screwed.

Comment: The Trinity, TRUE OR FALSE?

The belief that Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are co-equal Gods being
one God in three.

Countless hours have spent arguing about the belief in the Trinity. Fact
or fairytale?

Fact: The word Trinity appears no where in the Bible. Nor does the
doctrine.

Fact: The Almighty God never said he was Jesus nor did Jesus say he was
God. The Holy Spirit is silent.

Fact: The Apostles never spoke of such a thing nor is it recorded anywhere
in the Bible. The Apostle Paul who clarified so many things never
mentioned one word about it.

Fact: The Bible does give us instructions at:
1 John 4:4 Beloved ones, do not believe every inspired expression, but
test the inspired expressions to see whether they originate with God,
because many false prophets have gone forth into the world.

The Bible also says if it didn't originate from God, it came from the
wicked one. Satan the devil, the originator of the lie.

It did originally, but the publisher determined it was a printer's error and took it out after the second edition.

They forgot to tell the military

There was an overestimation of Pentagon staffers killed originally as some of them were on the plane that hit and when their IDs were found in the wreckage they were assumed to have died at work, and they were also counted in the passenger numbers.

Comment: I can't say this new. Is there information on the web or
elsewhere that you know of documenting whether there is global warming,
and if so, is it just cyclical and are humans making it worse? I am
confronted by the fact that I don't know what the truth is. Both sides
tout "facts," but both sides can't have facts that contradict each other.

Sure they can. In different contexts, contradictory sets of facts can all be true.
