Description : Lucifer has everything he could ever want - incredible magnetic powers, intellectual strength, and magnificent beauty - but still he wants more. When the Earth is created, Lucifer is overlooked and, in a jealous rage, an evil plan flourishes in his heart, a plan that will strike at the very heart of God through His newly created family. Satan wants the Throne of the Almighty as his own, and demands for himself the loyalty and adoring praise due only to the Creator. This takes the universe to the brink of annihilation. The Earth becomes Lucifer's trophy, won by deception. Mankind is doomed to reflect the traits of the new Commander-in-Chief, Satan, and to die an eternal death. God has a counter plan of His own, but his children have to first accept it. The world is on a mad spiral toward extinction with Satan at the helm until the Divine Plan is put in action. Who will win this devastating war and bring home the trophy? Once Were Angels is the most exciting adventure story of all time, as well as the biggest disaster and greatest rescue, encapsulated in an easy to read, hard-to-put-down book.
Description : Ants are legion: at present there are 11,006 species of ant known; they live everywhere in the world except the polar icecaps; and the combined weight of the ant population has been estimated to make up half the mass of all insects alive today. When we encounter them outdoors, ants fascinate us; discovered in our kitchen cupboards, they elicit horror and disgust. Charlotte Sleigh’s Ant elucidates the cultural reasons behind our varied reactions to these extraordinary insects, and considers the variety of responses that humans have expressed at different times and in different places to their intricate, miniature societies. Ants have figured as fantasy miniature armies, as models of good behavior, as infiltrating communists and as creatures on the borderline between the realms of the organic and the machine: in 1977 British Telecom hired ant experts to help solve problems with their massive information network. This is the first book to examine ants in these and many other such guises, and in so doing opens up broader issues about the history of science and humans’ relations with the natural world. It will be of interest to anyone who likes natural history or cultural studies, or who has ever rushed out and bought a can of RaidTM. "[Charlotte Sleigh's] stylish, engaging and informative study deserves to win new members for the ant fan club."—Jonathan Bate, The Times
Description : While heavily sedated in a South African hospital, a retired bishop dreams of his father who tell him: "I am here to tell you Jason that you have been chosen in this 2041 year of our Lord as the one to reveal the truth encrypted in the Eye of the Messiah, with its thirteen significant elements, as it was written in the secret scroll of Isaiah. The truth will be revealed in 13 dreams involving 13 objects." Jason is attended to by the Matron Larne, who is a part-time hooker, and a male nurse Paul who is gay. One of Larne's clients, Myaso, is the son of a witchdoctor. Next to Jason's room is a patient Abraam, who is reading his Ph.D. in religious studies. As Jason's dreams unfold, Isabel, who is ostracized from her hometown where she lived with her sister Mary, because she committed adultery, discovers the Eye of the Messiah in a grotto. The miracles of the Master, son of Mary and Joseph, are explained using natural phenomena, while four mischievous angels control the destiny of the soul of mankind. Judas convinces a soldier to become a hooker and he falls in love with one of the servants of the Master. An oracle, whose prophetic words are whistled, is a hermaphrodite with a grotesque difference. A vision of the witchdoctor, a dream of Paul's lover who is a Hindu devotee, and the thirteen dreams help Paul, Myaso and Abraam to unveil the shocking truth hidden within the Eye of the Messiah.
Description : A renowned speaker, business consultant, record-setting speed skier and Olympian, Vince Poscente believes in the enormous potential of the unconscious mind. Poscente likens the dynamic between the conscious and subconscious minds to an ant and an elephant: "Our minds are separated into two distinct functions -- the conscious and subconscious elements. Our ant is the intentional part of the brain, but our elephant is the instinctual, impulsive part of the brain that houses emotions and memories and even guides the body to perform vital functions. While we tend to know our conscious minds -- our ants -- rather well, we often overlook the power of our elephantine subconscious minds. When we do, unfortunately, we squander a wellspring of human potential." Having seen too many books focused on what a problem or solution is and too few focused on how to solve the problem, Poscente, with his trademark wit, wisdom and steely resolve, created The Ant and the Elephant -- Leadership for the Self: A Parable and Five-Step Action Plan to Transform Workplace Performance.

Action Comics Vol 1 544 Animals escaping from the Zoo An animal describes any number of species that are usually less intelligent than humans and other sentient lifeforms. There are a few notable exceptions, for example, Super-Apes possess super intelligence, and have the ability to communicate verbally as well as telepathically. Tawky Tawny is another rare case, he's a tiger that can talk, because he was apparently mutated somehow and he was transformed into an anthropomorphic talking tiger. Animals that have such special abilities are typically called Super Animals. There are countless species of animals native to Earth and other planets. Many are used for food or as pets, or can be seen in Zoological parks. This is a list of various species. Angels are creatures from Heaven, the messengers of God.
