Sin is the arab deity which many believe was transformed into the current God of Islam, back in the late 500's AD.
When ancient Israel was split into two kingdoms before its fall, Pagan Northern Israelis' worshipped this God which also eventually became a part of the ancient druidic religion.
Sin, according to the Old Testament scripture, was a fallen angel.

A 5,000-year-old stone structure in the shape of the crescent moon in northern Israel has been identified to be an ancient monument, predating much of the construction of Stonehenge in England and Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt.
The structure, known as Rujum en-Nabi Shua'ayb or Jethro Cairn, is located near the Sea of Galilee.
It was initially discovered in the early part of the 20th century, and was thought to form part of an ancient city's defensive walls.
But doctoral student Ido Wachtel from Hebrew University in Jerusalem recently made a convincing case that the construction served as a monument in its own right.
“The proposed interpretation for the site is that it constituted a prominent landmark in its natural landscape, serving to mark possession and to assert authority and rights over natural resources by a local rural or pastoral population,” Mr Wachtel wrote in a paper submitted to an archaeology conference in Switzerland.
Presenting his findings at the International Congress on the Archaeology of the Ancient Near East, Mr Wachtel said the structure may have been erected to honour the ancient Mesopotamian moon god, ‘Sin’.
One of the most important gods in Mesopotamian mythology, Sin, also known as ‘Nanna’, is symbolised as a crescent moon and is often depicted riding on a winged bull.
The structure was found close to the ancient Israeli town of Bet Yerah, which translates as "house of the moon god", and is believed to have been linked to the town's religious community.
The vast structure, which is 150 metres long with a volume of 14,000 cubic metres, is thought to have taken more than five months to build.

Christian evangelical leader Franklin Graham says the Ebola virus may be part of Bible end times prophecy and that Christians should be watching for signs of times indicating the end of the world.
In a related report by The Inquisitr, Graham also claims Christian persecution in America is on the rise, with the newest generation being overtly hostile toward Christians.
The persecution of Christians around the globe has Franklin noting the “killing of Christians by Muslims from Indonesia to Bangladesh to Pakistan,” China “tearing down church buildings,” “Christians tortured, beheaded, and crucified in Iraq, with villages burned and churches destroyed, and much the same in Syria.” Even in the United States, he recently wrote that “there is great opposition to the church of Jesus Christ. We see this throughout the media, the entertainment industry, government, and politics.” All of this is just signs of the times, according to Graham.
“Jesus warned His disciples in Matthew 24 when they asked Him about the signs of the end of the age,” he writes. “He said there would be wars and rumors of wars, famines, earthquakes, and pestilence. He told them, ‘Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.’”
According to Graham, it’s possible that the Ebola virus outbreak may be another sign of end times coming soon.
“We have seen firsthand the pestilence of Ebola,” Graham writes. “A medical doctor serving with Samaritan’s Purse in Liberia was infected with this deadly virus, but through the prayers of many righteous, God spared his life. I don’t know if we have hours, days, months, or years — but as Christians, God calls us to take the truth of the Gospel to the ends of the earth.”
To a certain extent, the number of deaths by the Ebola virus could almost be said to be Biblical in scope. Thousands have already perished, and a mysterious illness called Ev-D68 is causing children all over the United States to fall ill.

(CNSNews.com) – In a speech on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu compared Islamist terrorist groups such as ISIS, Hamas and Hezbollah to Nazis: “We know this. We’ve seen this before. There's a master race; now there's a master faith."
“The tactics are uniform. Terror first of all against your own people,” Netanyahu told attendees at the International Institute for Counter-Terrorism's (ICT) 14th annual conference held at Herzliya, an Israeli technology center located about six miles north of Tel Aviv.
“There's a master race; now there's a master faith. And that allows you to do anything to anyone, but first of all to your own people and then to everyone else,” Netanyahu continued, in a reference to Nazi ideology stemming from Adolf Hitler’s belief, detailed in his speeches and writings, that Aryans were the “master race.”
"And what do you do to everyone else? For that you use new techniques. And the new techniques involve first of all, taking over civilian populations, putting yourself inside civilian areas, contravening the laws of war and the Geneva Convention; using your people as human shields, the same people you execute; and then firing indiscriminately at civilians. You hide behind civilians, you fire on civilians. And you fire rockets and missiles.
"And this creates a whole new set of problems. And these problems are born of the fact that it's much harder to fight this kind of terror - much harder. It's much easier to fight an army: tanks, artillery, command centers, open spaces. You destroy that, you destroy the army. End of war.
"But these people, because they're forcing you to face up to the moral limits that democracies obey, are basically forcing you to fight a new war."
Netanyahu described what he called the "moral divide" between Islamic groups like Hamas and Western democracies.
“All of Israel mourned on September 11th. In Gaza, they were dancing on the roofs. They were handing out candy,” Netanyahu said. “That's the moral divide. We mourn; they celebrate the death of thousands of innocents.
“And then when the U.S. took out Bin-Laden, I, speaking for virtually the entire country, congratulated President Obama. In Gaza, Hamas condemned the U.S. and called Bin-Laden a 'holy warrior', a holy warrior of Islam. That's the moral divide. We celebrate; they mourn the death of an arch-terrorist,” the Israeli prime minister pointed out.
“Now that moral divide has never been clearer than it is today because Hamas, like al-Qaeda and its affiliates al-Nusra or its new growth ISIS, or Boko Haram, al-Shabab, Hezbollah supported by Iran - all are branches of the same poisonous tree. All present a clear and present danger to the peace and security of the world and to our common civilization.”
Netanyahu emphasized that, despite their internal divisions, all the various Islamic terror groups use violence to achieve their “one common goal.”
“These groups have absolutely no moral or other impediment to their mad desires. Once they have massive power, they will unleash all their violence, all their ideological zeal, all their hatred, with weapons of mass death.
“What we've seen is old regimes collapse and Islamist forces come to the surface, old hatreds - Shiite against Shiite, but primarily Shiite against Sunni, Sunni against Sunni - all come bursting from subterranean layers of history and frustration,” he explained.
“And they all have one common goal. The goal is we establish a new Islamist dominion, first in the Middle East and in their warped thinking, throughout the world. They all agree on that. They are not limited in their scope to a territory. They're not limited to borders… they may be anchored in a particular place, but their goal is to take the entire world, to cleanse it of infidels - first their own people, Muslims, and then everyone else. Madness.”
Netanyahu added that they all use the same tactics to achieve their common goal.
“They all agree that they have to establish a caliphate. They all disagree who should be the caliph. That's the nature of their disagreements. And they all use essentially the same tactic and that's unbridled violence, fear - fear – terror,” he said....

We have so many problems, these days in America, we no longer pay any meaningful attention to the one that's constantly (and rather easily) being lied about.
..... "And since I took office, we have now cut our deficits by more than half." ~ Barack Obama, December 2013
Submitted by Michael Snyder via The Economic Collapse blog,
The idea that the Obama administration has the budget deficit under control is a complete and total lie.
According to the U.S. Treasury, the federal government has officially run a deficit of 589 billion dollarsfor the first 11 months of fiscal year 2014. But this number is just for public consumption and it relies on accounting tricks which massively understate how much debt is actually being accumulated. If you want to know what the real budget deficit is, all you have to do is go to a U.S. Treasury website which calculates the U.S. national debt to the penny.
On September 30th, 2013 the U.S. national debt was sitting at $16,738,183,526,697.32. As I write this, the U.S. national debt is sitting at$17,742,108,970,073.37. That means that the U.S. national debt has actually grown by more than a trillion dollars in less than 12 months. We continue to wildly run up debt as if there is no tomorrow, and by doing so we are destroying the future of this nation.
The chart posted shows the exponential growth of the U.S. national debt over the past several decades.
Anyone that would characterize this as "under control" is lying to you...
This is the greatest government debt bubble in the history of the world, but very few people seem to have any desire to do anything about this anymore. We are literally gorging on debt, and most Americans seem to think that it is just fine and dandy.
Perhaps that it is because we have never really experienced any serious consequences for going into so much debt yet.
But when it comes to running up debt, a day of reckoning always comes eventually.
Just ask Greece.
And the absolutely insane spending policies of this administration and this Congress are hastening the day when our day of reckoning will arrive.
Consider the following facts...
-The U.S. national debt has increased by more than 7 trillion dollars since Barack Obama has been in the White House. By the time Obama's second term is over, we will have accumulated about as much new debt under his leadership than we did under all of the other U.S. presidents in all of U.S. history combined.
-The U.S. national debt is now more than 5000 times larger than it was when the Federal Reserve was first established in 1913.
-If the U.S. national debt was reduced to a stack of one dollar bills it would circle the earth at the equator 45 times.
-Right now, the United States already has more government debt per capita than Greece, Portugal, Italy, Ireland or Spain.
-In August, the average rate of interest on the government’s marketable debt was 2.028 percent. In January 2000, the average rate of interest on the government’s marketable debt was 6.620 percent. If we got back to that level today, we would be paying well over a trillion dollars a year just in interest on the national debt.
-At this point the U.S. government has accumulated more than 200 trillion dollars of unfunded liabilities that will need to be paid in future years. In other words, we have made more than 200 trillion dollars worth of promises that we do not have money for yet.
Thomas Jefferson once said that "the principle of spending money to be paid by posterity, under the name of funding, is but swindling futurity on a large scale."
What we are doing to future generations is absolutely unconscionable. We are stealing trillions upon trillions of dollars from our children and our grandchildren, and we are willingly consigning them to a lifetime of debt slavery.
I have said this before, but it bears repeating. If future generations get the chance, they will look back and curse us for what we have done to them.
And shame on anyone that would dare to suggest that we should continue to run up more debt that future generations will be expected to repay.
But government debt is far from the only massive debt bubble that we are dealing with as a country.
40 years ago, the total amount of debt in our nation (all government debt plus all business debt plus all individual debt) was sitting at a grand total of about 2.3 trillion dollars.
Today, that total has grown to 59.4 trillion dollars.
The following chart will show total debt bubble is now more than 25 times larger than it was just 40 years ago...
