Rapture Interest – A Contrarian Indicator

There’s no shortage of financial advice “out there” that is either freely accessible or available through a subscription service.  One of the sources that I’ve found useful in this economic realm is Stansberry Research.  They have a number of different newsletters covering the gamut of investments by many different writers, but the hallmark of Stansberry…

The Romans 1 – Genesis 6 Connection
