Radical Islamists recruit male youths in refugee camps in Germany  ...Bavaria's Interior Ministry has confirmed media reports that radical Islamists are trying to recruit young male asylum seekers arriving in the country unaccompanied. Up to 800,000 asylum seekers are set to be taken in by Germany by the end of the year.
"Salafists are trying to talk with unaccompanied youths who have come to Germany without their families and who are in particular need of support and connections," a spokesperson from the Bavarian internal security service (LfV) told Süddeutsche Zeitung.

This has been reportedly happening not only at refugee camps, but also at Munich Central Station, where tens of thousands of refugees have arrived over the past week alone...

3 New Spiritual Disciplines for a New Technological Reality ...Here are three “making room” disciplines for the 21st century that are not usually listed in manuals of spiritual disciplines.

“You've Ruined My Life, Professor Craig!!”
Dear Professor Craig,

My name is Adam. I am an atheist, and have been one ever since I can remember. I was brought up in the Roman Catholic church, but could never really say that I held any theistic beliefs with any sincerity. For instance, one time, when I was around eight or nine years old, I asked a nun at my church where I "was" before I was born. She responded: "You were with God." I was still curious, so I asked her how long I was with God, before my being born, and she proclaimed: "For an eternity!" I then asked her why I could not remember "existing with God” for an eternity of time (is an eternity of time even a coherent concept?). She had enough with that question and proceeded to shew me away to play with the other children. Looking back, I am proud of my skeptical disposition....

Is the "Five Second Rule" Real? A Food Scientist Explains ...While the “five-second rule” might not seem like the most pressing issue for food scientists to get to the bottom of, it’s still worth investigating food myths like this one because they shape our beliefs about when food is safe to eat.

So is five seconds on the floor the critical threshold that separates an edible morsel from a case of food poisoning? It’s a bit a more complicated than that. It depends on just how much bacteria can make it from floor to food in a few seconds and just how dirty the floor is...

Students can't remember 9/11, blame Bush and oil
Sep 10, 2015

As time passes, students on our nation's campuses continue to become further removed from the 9/11 attacks given their ages in 2001. This year's freshmen were only four years old that day. YAF visited the campus of George Mason University to see how much students know about the attacks and whether they think their professors should do a better job of educating them.
