HOW DID THE EASTER BUNNY COME INTO EASTER ?? I THINK I HAVE FOUND THE ANSWER?? .Will.BY MICHAEL GRYBOSKI, CHRISTIAN POST REPORTER March 28, 2013|5:50 am Christians will celebrate Easter this Sunday to observe when Jesus Christ resurrected from the dead. Yet along with the sacred observance will come a more secular American tradition wherein many children will leave out baskets with the playful expectation that the Easter Bunny will come. According to popular lore, it is the Easter Bunny who provides goodies (usually chocolate candy or ornate eggs) to children who leave their baskets out the night before. Many candy companies have taken advantage of the popular tradition and offer Easter Bunny-themed candy for that part of the year. However, where did this tradition of a bunny that gave out eggs come from? According to the History Channel's website, the precise origins of this non-biblical Easter figure are unclear but may have roots in German immigrant communities of the 18th century. "According to some s ...
I'm surprised you don't think it's very suspicious that Barbara & David Mikkelson refuse to reveal the source of their funding
SNOPES EXPOSED For the past few years (has positioned itself, or others have labeled it, as the 'tell-all final word' on any comment, claim and email. But for several years people tried to find out who exactly was behind snopes.com. Only recently did Wikipedia get to the bottom of it - kinda makes you wonder what they were hiding. Well, finally we know. It is run by a husband and wife team - that's right, no big office of investigators and researchers, no team of lawyers. It's just a mom-and-pop operation that began as a hobby. David and Barbara Mikkelson in the San Fernando Valley of California started the website about 13 years ago and they have no formal background or experience in investigative research. After a few years it gained popularity believing it to be unbiased and neutral, but over the past couple of years people started asking questions who was behind it and did they have a selfish motivation? The reason for the questions - or skepticisms - is a result of snopes.com claiming to have the bot ...

Rejection is God's way of saying "wrong direction", that are actually being reached for ~ Barbara Mikkelson
Meet David and Barbara Mikkelson the "so called" owners and managers of snopes.com. Join us and share: seems everything anyone posts there is always a "debunking" from snopes to try to discredit real researchers out here doing work. In case many of you dont know the Mikkelson's are zionists and very anti God. They are government shills sent to try to discredit the real truth about many issues and posts. They are anti God, pro abortion, pro homosexuality and anti truth. They try to discredit just about anything conspiracy related while keeping their liberal spin on true issues. They never want to admit any government wrongs because they work with the government. So the next time you want to try to discredit something use a site not ran and operated by the government and made to seem like a small mom and pop website. Discredit this ***
Is Microwaved Food Dangerous? The myths and the facts. Is microwaved food really hazardous to your health? Do hidden dangers lurk in the chemical structures of foods cooked in a microwave oven? Type “microwave food dangers” into any web search engine, and you’ll discover a multitude of claims about the supposed hazards of microwave ovens. According to these stories, foods cooked in microwave ovens cause almost every ailment known to humans, from cancer to lowered IQ to heart disease to fatigue. Oh, What a Tangled Web of Microwave Oven Myths We have a love-hate relationship with our microwave ovens.

Yet it takes only a quick skim and a smattering of scientific literacy to see that most of the c ...
Everybody knows about Snopes and most folks believe they are the final authority on proving or disproving myths or legends. I've attached a blurb from their Website explaining who they are; please read my blurb at the end explaining What they do. About snopes.com The snopes.com website was founded by Barbara and David Mikkelson, who live and work in the Los Angeles area. What they began in 1995 as an expression of their shared interest in researching urban legends has since grown into what is widely regarded by folklorists, journalists, and laypersons alike as one of the World Wide Web's essential resources. Snopes.com is routinely included in annual "Best of the Web" lists and has been the recipient of two Webby awards. The Mikkelsons have made multiple appearances as guests on national news programs such as 20/20, ABC World News, CNN Sunday Morning, and NPR's All Things Considered, and they and their work have been profiled in numerous major news publications, including The New York Times, the Los Ange ...
Snopes receives more complaints of liberal than conservative bias, but insists that it applies the same debunking standards to all political urban legends. FactCheck reviewed a sample of Snopes' responses to political rumors regarding George W. Bush, Sarah Palin and Barack Obama, and found them to be free from bias in all cases. FactCheck noted that Barbara Mikkelson was a Canadian citizen (and thus unable to vote in US elections) and David Mikkelson was an independent who was once registered as a Republican. "You’d be hard-pressed to find two more apolitical people," David Mikkelson told them.for people who do not trust Snopes.com. Try FactCheck
