Out of the Blue

The weather has been exceptionally mild around here for the last week. This would be a welcome change from winter in general, even if it hadn't been preceded by a couple of snowstorms. After dealing with those storms, this lull is a real stroke of luck for me, as I aggravated the hell out of my shoulder when shoveling, so I needed a break. It's still sore because I keep lifting stuff as we slowly pack up the BlueTower, but it's starting to get better, and at least it's stopped waking me up when I roll over in my sleep. So... yay?

Perhaps, but tides are irrelevant against incoming tsunamis.

Tsunamis are actual occurring events. They can be prepared for and managed.

Biblical prophecies will never occur.

I dunno, some of it seems quite relevant today. Anxious


Precisely. Based on my study, the Bible's prediction about "the last days" has come true on a global scale. Unlike any other book, the Bible has a perfect track record of accuracy. Peter Stoner, Chairman of the Department of Math and Astronomy at Pasadena City College until 1953, decided to apply science to biblical prophecy in the form of mathematical probabilities. In one test alone, Mr. Stoner looked at the prophecy in Micah 5:2 that revealed the Messiah would be born in Bethlehem. He took the average population of Bethlehem from the time of Micah until 1958 and divided that by the mean population of the earth during the same period. The results: 7,150/2,000,000,000 or 2.8×105. In other words, it would be virtually impossible for this to happen randomly. *mind. blown.*

2 Timothy 3:1-5 is simply one example providing a laundry list of the personalities and attitudes of people globally. Bare in mind; Paul had no idea what world conditions would be like some 1,900 years in the future. However, God knew, and he inspired Paul to note many of them in his letter to Timothy, who had, by that point, became a respected elder in the Ephesus Christian congregation.

As an aside, and a companion to 2 Timothy 3:1-5, Paul's inspired letter to the Christian congregation in Galatia provided an additional list of attitudes that would be prevalent. Galatians 5:19-21, "Now the works of the flesh are plainly seen, and they are sexual immorality, uncleanness, brazen conduct, idolatry, spiritism, hostility, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, dissensions, divisions, sects, envy, drunkenness, wild parties, and things like these."

For many, dismissing the Bible as a book of cryptic riddles and fiction is common. However, the scientific evidence makes the rejection of biblical accuracy unwise. At least that is my take on the thing, and yes, I am totally biased.

My apologies if this bible stuff is unwanted. I am trying to be accommodating to all. Going forward, I will try to keep these kinds of comments to a minimum. Even more so on a video game site.
