In about five billion years, our Sun will become a red giant as it runs out of fuel, swelling to many hundreds of times its present size and destroying the inner planets. However, new findings suggest the outer planets could survive.

Little Mount

The name of St. Thomas Mount is linked with other important things of India. In the year 1972, to venerate the nineteenth centenary of the martyrdom, the Post and Telegraphs department of the Government of India, brought out a postage stamp describing the image of the blood strewn cross of St. Thomas Mount. In the beginning, i.e. in the year 1964, another stamp was being brought out by the Post and Telegraph department of Indian government. It depicts the ‘Ortona silver bust of St. Thomas’.

Why Did Christianity Win?

http://y-jesus.com/body_count10.php

By all rights, Christianity should have died out at the cross when the disciples fled for their lives. But the apostles went on to establish a growing Christian movement.

J. N. D. Anderson wrote, "Think of the psychological absurdity of picturing a little band of defeated cowards cowering in an upper room one day and a few days later transformed into a company that no persecution could silence;" and then attempting to attribute this dramatic change to nothing more convincing than a miserable fabrication. "That simply wouldn't make sense."

Many scholars believe (in the words of an ancient commentator) that "the blood of the martyrs was the seed of the church." Historian Will Durant observed, "Caesar and Christ had met in the arena and Christ had won."
