JAH-BUL-ON: The True god of Freemasonry

Explaining the Royal Arch Degree of Freemasonry JAH-BUL-ON This Judaeo-Masonic name for the 'Masonic Christ' is derived from 4 different languages : CHALDAEA - (JAH)   This is the Chaldaean name for the Masonic god ; signifying that ‘his essence and majesty is incomprehensible.' HEBREW - (JAH)  This is a Hebrew word signifying ‘I am and shall be’, thereby expressing the actual essence, future, and eternal existence of (TMH) The Most High . SYRIAC - (BUL)  This is a Syriac word denoting Lord, or Powerful, it is in itself a compound word, being formed from the preposition Beth, in or on, and UL, Heaven or on High. EGYPTIAN - (ON) This is an Egyptian word signifying 'Father of All', as in that well known prayer, Our Father, which art in Heaven. The various significations of the word may thus be collected: I am and shall be; Lord in Heaven or on High.’ Be very sure... what i

UK May be First to Have Babies Made From Three People

Britain may be the first country to allow scientists to create babies using DNA from three people.
On Wednesday, the UK's fertility regulator, the Human Fertilization and Embryology Authority, said it has advised the government there is no scientific evidence to say applying the IVF technique using DNA from three people is unsafe.
However, the  authority recommended that regulation and safeguards be put in place.
DNA or deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is a molecule that encodes genetic instructions relating to all known living organisms and many viruses. IVF is in vitro fertilization  a process in which an an egg is fertilized by sperm outside the body.
It is now up the British Parliament to decide whether to allow such a procedure to take place.
"This is advice, this is not a decision we can make. It is now up to parliament to consider whether this technique is permitted in treatment," Professor Lisa Jardine, chair of the fertility regulator, told reporters.
"We have no idea when this will be available. It's likely to be years - it is not a short time frame. We took the public temperature and there is broad support to give families at risk a chance of having a healthy child."
The recommendation by HFEA comes after a public consultation at the end of 2012 showed there was support for the technique.
The three-parent IVF would be used to help treat families at risk for "mitochondrial disorders."
The idea is to use mitochondria from a donor egg but keep DNA from the two parents.
The three-person IVF technique involves one donor egg and one parent egg being fertilized with sperm, creating two embryos.
The pro-nuclei  which contains the genetic information, from the parents' embryo is extracted and replaces the pro-nuclei of the donor egg. The donor egg containing the genetic information of the two parents is then implanted in the womb.
Critics of the technique have voiced ethical concerns and worry that it would lead to further genetic modification.
Some of the critics of the technique are religious groups such as the Roman Catholic Church which opposes IVF as it opposes the process of discarding of embryos.
