    Prager U Video: The Intolerance of Tolerance
    Mar. 17, 2020

    The dictionary defines tolerance as respect for opinions, beliefs, and practices that differ from your own. But not in our polarized cultural climate.

    Greg Koukl, president of Stand to Reason, sorts it all out.

      Meet The 9 Irish Dog Breeds

      Is your dog Irish? Several dog breeds are native to Ireland, one of which is the tallest dog in the world, the Irish Wolfhound. This gentle giant joins 8 other dog breeds, and each has a rich history. According to the Irish Kennel Club, they are:

      The Irish Glen of Imaal Terrier
      The Irish Red Setter
      The Irish Red and White Setter
      The Irish Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier
      The Irish Terrier
      The Irish Water Spaniel
      The Kerry Beagle
      The Kerry Blue

      Most of these dogs were bred to be working or hunting dogs; the Irish Wolfhound was bred to hunt wolves, and later was used a “wardog.” Several of the Irish dog breeds are very rare, including the Irish Red and White Setter, and one of the rarest breeds in the world, the Irish Glen of Imaal Terrier. The Irish Wolfhound is a very old breed, with records of them being brought to Ireland as early as 7000 BC.

      Irish dogs are featured heavily in Welsh and Celtic mythology too. Celtic hounds were thought to protect lost souls and helped guide them to the underworld. Along with their connection to the underworld, they also symbolized hunting and healing. In Welsh mythology, a pack of supernatural hounds called the Cŵn Annwn was led by Gwyn ap Nudd, the ruler of the underworld, called Annwn.

      All Irish dogs are described as active dogs, who have quirky natures and great personalities. If you see one of these dogs on St. Patrick’s Day, it might just be a stroke of good luck! And if you have one of these dogs, may the “luck of the Irish” be with you.

    For fans of British TV, I recommend a show I just watched on Acorn TV. It is a 3-part series called “Code of a Killer”. Based on the true story of the first killer identified by DNA, and the first mass DNA forensic screening. The man who developed what he called “dna fingerprinting”, Alec Jeffreys, was knighted in 1994 for services to genetics and to science and technology.
