(Wired Science) – Scientists have unearthed a completely new species of spider hiding in sand dunes on the Israel-Jordan border.

With a legspan that stretches 5.5 inches, the spider, called Cerbalus aravensis, is the biggest of its type in the Middle East. “It is rare to find a new species of spider — at least around this part of the world — which is so big,” said biologist Uri Shanas of the University of Haifa-Oranim in Israel, who discovered the arachnid.

I have become a huge fan of “Podiobooks” or serialized audio books that are free. If you have an MP3 player, free time and would enjoy listening to something other than music, its for you! I spend about 2 hours a day sitting in traffic going to and from work so I have plenty of listening time. I don’t remember how exactly I came upon but it is a gold mine for audio books. While visiting it the other night, The GOD Conspiracy was on the front page and grabbed my attention. Needless to say, I am 1 episode away from being caught up and cant wait to hear more.

Derek Gilbert has created a great story of modern day life and Biblical prophecy intersecting each other for world changing events. The best part about it is well, it is what is happening right now. It might not exactly match up with Derek’s story, but the message is the same. That is the great thing about a story, you make it go where you want. Using the framework of real prophecy gives you a great guideline. It enables you to flesh out prophecy to show others that YES, we are living in THOSE times.

A witnessing tool? It very well could be, much like the “Left Behind” series its exciting and compelling and makes you think. If you can, give it a listen. Im sure you wont be sorry. After you have listened, head over to his website for even more good stuff!
