Doom and Destruction of Biblical Proportions?

H/T to DistributorCap for pointing out that the verse in Revelation 8:8-9 is eerily similar to the idea of a huge oil rig blowing up, catching fire, and spewing oil into the ocean.



8 The second angel blew his trumpet, and something like a great mountain, burning with fire, was thrown into the sea, and a third of the sea became blood. 9 A third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.

As you know, I am not a particularly religious person, but even if the Bible is not true, then it is still a strange coincidence and quite chilling.

And the next verse is even worse - look out for a falling meteor or nuclear bomb or something hitting the earth next:

8:10 And the third angel sounded, and there fell from heaven a great star, burning as a torch, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of the waters; 8:11 And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.

Let's hope this doesn't happen next. But the way things are going, who can tell?

Please go read DCap's post - he really sums up the whole horrible situation very eloquently - and scathingly. If we don't pay attention this time, our world may very well be doomed.

Mimi, I've already been to DC's post and recommend it highly.

An alternate translation for "wormwood" from the koine is "poison".

I think it is 2012 that is to be the grand finale. Cappy is a genius.
TC isn't to bad either.
Hope things are well with your Mom..

Did Nostradamus make predictions as well I wonder?

It's like we have our own Chernobyl going on here.
I would think we really need to be asking for international help-- BP does NOT have this under control.
The geyser cam appears to be spewing MORE fluid, after the top kill has been attempted.

As if there are not enough natural disasters going on, we have to create a whopper of a man made catastrophe.

Where are our friends who sell us oil @ top prices in foreign countries?
We need help- now!

Humans are a cancer - what other organism kills it's host?

Can we use the revelations quote to make the fundies oppose offshore oil drilling?
