Tarot: Dr. James Wanless debunked!

Few cultural artifacts have been as distorted and misrepresentated as the Tarot. Tarot cards were first created for playing a card game and the fortune telling excercises evolved much later. There is no evidence that Tarot cards were created for any other purpose than for playing a trick taking card game. In France, Tarot is played as a classic card game where it has been called the Chess of card games.
Too many of those promoting the use of Tarot for divinatory purposes often falsify the history of these cards. Dr. James Wanless appears to be one of those who are either ignorant or intentionally deceptive on this matter.
It behooves all of us who are interested in the history of classic board and card games to debunk the common falsehoods often spread about this deck of cards.

NATO takes over command of military operations in Libya

[b]NATO is taking over command of military operations in Libya from coalition forces, world media reported Sunday.[/b]

The UN Security Council imposed the no-fly zone over Libya on March 17, along with ordering "all necessary measures" to protect civilians from Muammar Gaddafi's attacks on rebel-held towns.

The 28 NATO ambassadors met on Sunday to decide on further military plans in Libya.

The United States transfers command for a no-fly zone over Libya to NATO, while coalition forces will continue to protect civilian population from attacks by Gaddafi forces.

The military operation in Libya, codenamed Odyssey Dawn, has been conducted so far jointly by 13 states, including the United States, Britain and France.

NATO members decided on Thursday to assume responsibility for the enforcement of a no-fly zone in Libya, but could not agree on taking full command of all military operations in the country.

Meanwhile, leaders of the 27 European Union states on Thursday issued a statement saying the EU stood ready to assist in building a new Libya "in cooperation with the United Nations, the Arab League, the African Union and others."
