For centuries, historians have studied the Nazca Lines, trying to determine their origins. Some researchers believe the Nazca people may have created the lines using the archaic tools and equipment they had at the time, a theory that is supported by wooden stakes that have been found at the end of some of the lines.

However, a new theory brings a paranormal explanation to the history of the lines. Conspiracy theorists have speculated that the lines may have been drawn in order to guide alien visitors who spied them from space.

Like crop circles, Nazca Lines are only visible from above, but once viewed, the designs are clearly too elaborate to be accidental. These lines are in the shape of monkeys, fish, and humanoids, interspersed with straight lines.

Americans love eating pork, but the fat content can make it a no-no for health-conscious dieters. Chinese scientists may soon have a solution for that. Using genetic engineering, Chinese scientists have created pigs that have 24 percent less body fat that real pigs.

The pigs were given a gene that better burns body fat to help regulate their body temperature. Not only could this produce leaner meat, it also would allow farmers to save on heating and cooling costs.

As researchers work hard to find a cure for cancer, the best solution may be to cause cancer cells to self-destruct. Working with this concept, a team at Northwestern University believe RNA molecules they’ve dubbed “suicide molecules” are the key to battling cancerous tumors.

The molecules were originally developed to study gene function, but researchers found that when injected into a cancer cell, they trigger an ancient kill switch that prevents the disease from developing. The lead study author has been searching for molecules that provided this function for years.

In 2015, a former Google and Uber engineer filed documents with the state of California to begin Way of the Future, a nonprofit religious group focused on worshipping artificial intelligence (AI).

Based on paperwork obtained by Backchannel, the group's stated mission is "to develop and promote the realization of a Godhead based on artificial intelligence and through understanding and worship of the Godhead contribute to the betterment of society."

Anthony Levandowski is the person identified as the CEO and president of Way of the Future.

LiveScience reports that Candi Cann, an author and religious studies scholar who teaches comparative religion at Baylor University, believes that Levandowski's faith-based program isn't really all that strange when viewed with a perspective for history.

An overhead photograph of the glass igloos at Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort in Finland shows an inviting array of cozy spaces, each appearing to sport a discreet row of curtains that should keep prying eyes out while allowing in the sight of nature's wonders.

A tag line on the resort's home page beckons: "Indulge in the cosy [sic] warmth of a log cabin while enjoying the sensational views of our glass igloos. Take in the enchanting beauty of the northern lights and the Lappish wilderness from the comfort of your own private hideaway."

That, combined with several other photos on the site, makes for a hard-to-resist temptation. But how to get there? And what to do when the light shows are inactive or unspectacular?
