Gotta Watch: 2010 holy sightings; screwy history; li'l dribbler

The Year in Holy Sightings: Spirits show their faces in some strange places in CNN.com's compilation of the best holy sighting videos.

That's textbook ... or is it? Students, if you're contemplating copying and pasting your term paper from the internet, think again. This kind of "research" has backfired on a Virginia textbook author who did just that. You won't believe some of the preposterous statements in this fourth-grade history book ... like the claim thousands of blacks served in the Confederate army,  an assertion many historians say is unfounded.

Kid's got game: This video speaks for itself. This kid takes dribbling to a new level. Twelve-year-old Jordan McCabe - yes that's his real name - will leave you mesmerized with his skills on the court.

    Humans like to think we're more important than we really are; so they like to believe in all powerful supernatural beings, to justify their own existence. However, the known Universe is 13.5 Billion Light Years across. If the Earth, Our solar system or even the Milky Way were to just "blink" from existence, not one other living thing elsewhere in the Universe would notice. We're very very VERY small and extremely unimportant in the grand scheme of things.

    Who are we to question the athiests? Since their brains evolved from a tadpole, they must be right.

      Don't diss the tadpole dude. If it wasn't for your dad's 'tadpoles', you'd be nothing but a twinkle in your mother's eyes.... or rather, a bloody Maxi in the landfill.
