In , inside a covert U. Piece by piece, they extracted an ice core 4 inches across and nearly a mile long. At the very end, they pulled up something else — 12 feet of frozen soil. The frozen soil was examined, set aside and then forgotten. Half a century later, scientists rediscovered that soil in a Danish freezer. It is now revealing its secrets.

Scientists in Glasgow found a unique way to use carbon dating to determine the real age of expensive single malt Scotch whiskies — and immediately found nearly half the bottles tested were unremarkable liquor fraudulently marketed as old and rare. The results of the study suggest connoisseurs and collectors splashing increasingly exorbitant amounts in the luxe pursuit of outrageously expensive Scotch may have been duped. The demand for rare Scotch whisky was first driven by connoisseurs, then collectors and now, perhaps as often as not, by investors and speculators. Bottles of old and rare single malt Scotch have become increasingly popular among the rich and super rich. It is both a niche luxury investment and an attention-grabbing way to indulge opulence and excessive wealth while keeping a sense of elegance. Not that any of these bottles, auctioned at prestigious houses from one of the most revered distilleries, were frauds, but it shows the kind of money at stake at the highest levels. The overall effect can be very realistic.
The simple answer is, not very well. Sadly, our long history of often experiencing rejection or simply being ignored is disillusioning for me. Two scientists, two replies to how they are received in our churches, and neither reflects well on the Body of Christ. But that does not mean they are absent in our churches.
