Truth and People's Mind
The experience of a deaf-mute Falun Gong practitioner who went to Beijing to validate Dafa: In Xuanwu Detention Center the police treated me in various ways. They also got a teacher from a deaf-mute school to take advantage of the weaknesses of deaf-mute people. I strengthened my righteous thoughts to only believe in Master. I did not cooperate with any of their requirements and did not tell them my name and address. One day I realized the true meaning of selflessness and decided to resist the persecution by going on a hunger strike. I even refused to drink water. The third day after I started the hunger strike the head of the detention center asked to speak with me. He said that my thoughts and communications are not like those of a deaf-mute person. He said that I was pretending to be deaf. The vicious police force-fed me for two days and then released me. The policeman who showed me out gave me a thumbs-up sign.
News from China
To Friends Far Away: The persecution of Falun Gong is closely related to all Chinese people. "Truthfulness-Compassion-Tolerance" are the moral standards that people accept. Isn't the persecution against people who cultivate "Truthfulness-Compassion- Tolerance" denying the moral standard of human society? The persecution of kindness itself is a crime. Recently natural disasters keep happening in China. Aren't these warnings from Heaven to people! We hope you will understand the truth of Falun Gong and tell the truth to those who persecute Falun Gong. It is a heavenly principle that the good will be rewarded with good, and evil with evil. Please let them think well for their own future!
The fossil "Archaeoraptor liaoningensis" that was earlier claimed to be the "missing link" between dinosaurs and birds turns out to be fake. "Archaeoraptor liaoningensis" is a fossil specimen that was smuggled from China to America. In 1999, National Geographic Magazine published the photograph of this fossil along with a report saying the fossil was "perhaps the best evidence since Archaeopteryx that birds did, in fact, evolve from certain types of carnivorous dinosaurs." The report caused an uproar around the world. In 2001, Nature, a magazine in Britain, published an article titled "Forensic paleontology: The Archaeoraptor forgery." According to this article, "the fossil was actually a composite of the tail of a new species of non-flying dinosaur and the skeleton of a primitive bird species also completely new to science." It was concluded that it was a trick by some Chinese farmers.
