Ancient Egypt: Bible expert exposes ‘evidence’ 10 Plagues ‘were aimed’ at Egyptian gods

The third plague of lice may correspond to the Egyptian god Seb or Geb, the god of earth from which all things come, including lice.

Professor Meyer said: “The fourth plague of flies showed the power of YHWH over Hatchit, the goddess of the marshes.

“The fifth plague of pestilence upon animals like cows was directed at one of the most powerful gods of Egypt: Apis, the bull god of strength and victory in war.

“The sixth plague, the plague of boils, was directed against Sakhmet, the goddess with the power to stop epidemics.

“The seventh plague of hail targeted Nut, the sky goddess, and Osiris, the god of crops.

What happens when you die: Man believes he saw his OWN funeral in afterlife experience

A person named Thomas was clinically dead following complications during surgery. While he was temporarily dead before he was resuscitated, Thomas had bizarre visions which he perceived to be the afterlife. In it, Thomas believes he became a ghostly figure in which no one could see him.

Writing on the Near Death Experience Research Foundation, Thomas said: “The lights came on and the operating room was empty. I couldn’t figure out where everyone went. I got off the table and headed for a door. I pushed open the door and fell.

“I landed on grass and found myself in Willamette National Cemetery in Portland, Oregon.

“I was wearing a hospital gown and I couldn’t understand why no one could see me. I started to walk over to one of the shelters where funerals take place for veterans.

“I noticed a large gathering was taking place. I walked over and could see my wife and my step-daughter crying.

“I started to freak out as I realise it was my funeral. I tried to get their attention but there was no sound; it was absolute silence. Then, everything went dark again.

“This time I could see from a different angle. I watched my parents arguing in a room.

“The room had concrete blocks for walls that were painted white. I couldn’t exactly hear what was being said but it almost seemed as if I was in my mother’s womb.

“I was being presented with various scenes that seemed to go on forever. (I’m going to save this part for a book.)

“At the end, I became woozy and blacked out. I woke up in a chair. There was a woman in a nurse’s uniform with a dark blue sweater who was standing in a dark room.

“She started to talk to me but her mouth wasn’t moving. She told me that I was being sent back because it wasn’t my time yet.”

Suddenly, Thomas was back in his body but he is now convinced there is an afterlife.

Scientists, however, are not so certain and believe visions such as Thomas’ are a normal phenomenon.

Dr Sam Parnia, director of critical care and resuscitation research at NYU Langone School of Medicine in New York City, told an Oz Talk: “Death is a process, it is not a black and white moment.

“The final result is we have a deduction of oxygen that gets inside the brain when we are about to die and that causes our brain circuits to shut down and we become unconscious to the outside world.

“When the heart stops, all life processes go out because there is no blood getting to the brain, to the kidneys, and liver and we become lifeless and motionless and that is the time that doctors use to give us a time of death.”

Black Friday deals are picking up pace as many leading online retailers launch early Black Friday promotions. eBay is the latest big name to drop a sale, with 20% off from selected sellers until Nov. 19.

Three TikTok creators may have just saved the app from Trump’s shutdown order

Viral video app TikTok won’t be shut down in the U.S. today, regardless of the Trump administration’s original deadline.

According to a report from the Wall Street Journal, the Commerce Department will not enforce the government’s order, which would have basically shut down TikTok on Thursday, due to a preliminary injunction against the move by a U.S. District Court Judge in Philadelphia.

While TikTok itself made legal moves earlier this week to delay the shutdown, the company has three of its own users to thank for the government’s current position. The preliminary injunction cited by the Commerce Department was the result of a lawsuit filed by three popular TikTok creators — Douglas Marland, Cosette Rinab, and Alec Chambers. Each of them has millions of followers on the platform.

The Trump administration argued that TikTok was a national security threat due to its China-based parent company ByteDance’s connection to the Chinese government. An executive order from the president gave TikTok until November 12 to cut ties with ByteDance. 

TikTok has attempted to satiate Trump’s demands, partnering with the U.S.-based technology company Oracle. However, that deal has not yet been finalized. 

In an interesting turn of events, TikTok announced it was filing a petition with the U.S. Court of Appeals on Tuesday to halt the order. The company claims the Trump administration hasn’t responded to its attempts to make contact for weeks.

If the ban went through, Apple would have been forced to remove TikTok’s app from the App Store. Other online services companies, like Amazon and Google, which provides web hosting for the app, would have been barred from doing business with TikTok as well.

TikTok isn’t safe from the Trump administration’s shutdown order quite yet. However, with Trump’s attention currently focused on trying to overturn an election, which he lost, TikTok seems poised to avert a U.S. ban.

All the best smartwatch and fitness tracker deals this Black Friday

SAVE UP TO 53%: Smartwatches and fitness trackers are on sale this Black Friday, including top brands like Samsung, Honor, and Huawei.


It’s not always the case, but sometimes early Black Friday deals omit the biggest brands. You’ll come across loads of great camera deals, for example, without the likes of Canon and Nikon. This year seems to be different though, as we’ve seen impressive discounts on some of the biggest names in the tech game.

There are already loads of smartwatch and fitness tracker deals as part of Amazon’s pre-Black Friday sale, including top brands like Samsung, Honor, and Huawei. There’s a lot to consider, so we’ve helped you out.

It’s worth checking out everything on offer, but we’ve lined up a few standout deals you should check out:

The thin, lightweight, tough, and stylish Galaxy Active smartwatch fits in with your lifestyle, with real-time guidance to help you reach your goals. It can track your sleep, give you breathing exercises to help reduce stress, and create healthy habits that last.

The Honor MagicWatch 2 is powered by the all-new Huawei Kirin A1 chipset, meaning it processes data faster, using less power for the same results. The built-in running app also comes with 13 different running courses with real-time VoiceOver guidance.  

With an impressive 0.95-inch AMOLED touchscreen with impressive colour and contrast, the Huawei Band 4 Pro provides a great visual experience. It’s SpO2 supported, with realtime heartrate monitoring, sleep tracking, and built-in GPS.

We’re expecting plenty more smartwatch and fitness tracker deals as we get closer to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see the Apple Watch make an appearance.

We’ll keep you posted on every deal that drops.
