  • Cards win World Series, beat Texas 6-2 in Game 7--video extra

    ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals won a remarkable World Series they weren't even supposed to reach, beating the Texas Rangers 6-2 in Game 7 on Friday night with another key hit by hometown star David Freese and six gutty innings from Chris Carpenter.

    A day after an epic Game 6 that saw them twice within one strike of elimination, the Cardinals captured their 11th World Series crown. After a whole fall on the edge, Tony La Russa's team didn't dare mess with Texas, or any more drama.

    Freese's two-run double tied it in the first inning against loser Matt Harrison and Allen Craig hit a go-ahead homer in the third.

  • Bible Answers: Explaining the difference between arks

    “Why do we call Noah’s big boat an ‘ark’ because there is also the ‘ark’ of the covenant?” — Hunter

    Your question opens the lid on an interesting discussion concerning boxes, boats and baskets.
    To get to the bottom of it, you have to consider the meaning of various words in at least four different languages — Hebrew, Greek, Latin and English.
    In the Hebrew Bible, there are three different words to explore. The one most commonly used for “ship” (such as the vessel Jonah sailed in) appears often.
    A second, more specific term, used only twice, refers to Noah’s boat and to the basket used to float Moses on the Nile River.
