The biblical book of ‪Revelation‬ is itself a puzzle to most. One of its great misunderstood mysteries is the haunting depiction of four horses and their terrible riders galloping across time.

Are these ominous horsemen no more than a stunning caricature for a modern-day video game? http://bit.ly/1TEHTvX

According to the World Health Organization an estimated 350 million people of all ages suffer from depression. The study involved two groups of children, one at high risk of depression due to family history and a control group with kids at low risk. Kids from both groups were scanned to map the network pathways in their brains. The question was if the researchers could find differences in brain activity that would be an indicator for a higher ri...

Another battle in Syria: delivering aid. Despite a UN resolution demanding access for humanitarian aid, the International Committee of the Red Cross and others face a struggle.

Agencies continue to unload food in Madaya, Foua and Kefraya, having at last been allowed into the besieged towns this week. Many stranded there had been living on little more than bread, leaves and water flavoured with spices; Médecins Sans Frontières says hunger has killed 28 in Madaya. Despite a UN resolution demanding access for humanitarian aid, the International Committee of the Red Cross and others face a struggle. The three towns are home...

This past week, the World Health Organization (W.H.O) declared the virus to be a “global emergency.”
Various issues have threatened to cause serious problems throughout the duration of the games and now some are wondering if they should be canceled.

Born March 9, 1959, Barbie Millicent Roberts grew up to be the most famous fashion doll in the world. Though most people probably don’t know her full name, nor that she claims Willows, Wisconsin, as her hometown, girls the world over have counted Barbie a close childhood companion and role model. And her parent company, Mattel, Inc., couldn’t be prouder.

What does the phenomenon known as Barbie say about the world in which our children are growing up?

The most popular fashion doll in history is no stranger to plastic surgery. But what does the forever-young, always-in-style Barbie say about us?

Throughout the world, nearly all who consider themselves Christian observe the first day of the week rather than the seventh.

On what basis has Sunday become the accepted day of worship?

The dead birds, common murres that had starved, were lined up and left where the tide had dropped them on the shore.

"We have never found close to 8,000 birds on a 1-mile long beach before," Irons said of his early January discovery. "It is an order of magnitude larger than any records that I am aware of."

The discovery of thousands of dead seabirds indicates the ecosystem off Alaska is being troubled by abnormally warm ocean water, biologists say.

Martin Luther King Jr. was not the leader of the civil rights movement, but his voice resonated with a wide variety of listeners. And his words continue to touch us today.

Story

In-depth coverage of current social issues. Insights into the philosophical, moral and ethical values in society today—health care, science and environmental news and articles.
Introduction
Vision evaluates the news of the day from a different perspective than most issue-oriented publications. Our mission is to give our readers a deeper understanding of the causes of problems facing humanity.

Where do you turn for trustworthy information in today’s world of sound bites and sensationalized news? With the average person being bombarded by literally thousands of messages every day from the ever expanding and fragmenting media, how is it possible to sort through the tremendous clutter and make sense of the conflicting voices?

With these questions in mind, the idea of Vision.org was born. We set out to create a Web site that would challenge readers to examine the historical and philosophical origins of today’s issues. Here you will find articles from our quarterly international companion journal Vision as well as other articles, interviews and information that help give direction in a difficult and confusing age.

While Vision.org examines the issues of today, it is not primarily a news site. Instead it seeks to evaluate the news of the day in a more in-depth way than most issue-oriented publications. Our mission is to give our readers a deeper understanding of the causes of problems with which humanity wrestles. In doing so, we affirm our commitment to accuracy and to honest treatment of the facts of every issue we explore. We are dedicated to presenting the subjects we address in a thorough, objective and balanced way.

But, like every other information or news source, we do have a certain bent. Vision.org brings insight into the complex social, moral and philosophical questions that confront society by examining them through the wisdom of an ancient source, the Bible. We believe that the principles contained in that book are still valid and can be applied to help solve the global, national and personal conflicts we face. But we do not proselytize, nor do we seek to convert anyone to any denomination or religious belief. Our only goal is to reestablish the Bible as a credible voice in the discussion of ideas. We hope you benefit from what you read, hear and see on this site, and we look forward to hearing your comments and suggestions.
