World Events Pointing To Anything?

March 13, 2011 at 1:10 am (Really interesting world events)

The recent major earthquake off the coast of Japan has caused me to cease to ignore this ratcheting upward trend of natural disasters. We have all heard of, or have seen on the news, all the recent major natural disasters including the recent earthquake that just wreaked havoc on Japan.

I don’t know about you, but right now when I turn on CNN, I swear I’m in a theater watching 2012 with John Cusak, all over again. Some of the disasters we are seeing happening today don’t look all that much different from those in that movie. Is this fact getting anyone else’s attention? Does it have to happen in your city to make you realize that this is really happening?

I am not really all that old, but I can accurately say that the rate and severity of the disasters that happen today did not happen like this when I was both a kid, and a teenager. Sure there were major disasters, but only every once in a while and never with the amount of carnage that accompanies those we are seeing today. It seems that recently, each time we hear about another major natural disaster, it takes it up a notch from the last one that happened. It seems very clear to me that both the frequency, and the intensity of each and every natural disaster is worse than the one before it. The country that was most recently devastated isn’t even finished cleaning up their damage before there is another country getting pummeled by something else.

Now you know this is going to lead to a comment about the whole Mayan calender 2012 debate, so here we go. I am not a follower of the theory that the world will end in 2012. In fact, I believed that nothing unusual will happen in 2012 except a lot of people will make a lot of money off of those who really think it will be all over in 2012. I don’t know much about the Mayans or their calender, but I am pretty sure they believed that 2012 is not really an end, but rather a new beginning, or a rebirth. The completing of a cycle, and the beginning of another.

Just for discussion’s sake, let’s say the Mayans are correct. Let’s say 2012 is the end of one cycle, and the rebirth or beginning of another. What does this really mean? It means that in 2012, there will be a new beginning, or the beginning of a new cycle. Now I don’t know about you, but that is pretty vague to me. I’m not sure what that really means.

However, let me tell you what I know for a fact. I know for a fact that every beginning comes from some other beginning’s end. It has to be that way.

Let me finish by saying that I don’t claim to have any answers for anything. The only things I know will happen for sure are that I will pay taxes, and I will eventually die. I also know that our Earth is doing things I don’t ever remember it doing, ever. Not on this scale; not at this level of devastation. Turn on CNN on your flat-screen, throw 2012 with John Cusak into your Blu-Ray player. Do some of the disasters really look all that different? Do they really?

American Chronicle | I see dead birds and fish, Apocalypse at hand? Scientists still baffled.

January 7, 2011 at 2:58 am (Really interesting world events)

American Chronicle | I see dead birds and fish, Apocalypse at hand? Scientists still baffled..

Most of us by now have heard about the dead birds falling from the sky in Arkansas, and in Louisiana, as well as the fish washing up dead in different parts of the world. I cannot help myself but to stare at my dual computer screens which are packed tight with several browsers all spewing information on birds and fish dying by the thousands. Oh wait, add crabs to the list as well. As for explanations, I have heard the very ridiculous “fireworks” and “lightning”. Never mind that people have been lighting off fireworks on New Years Eve for eons, and never once have 5,000 birds taken flight and died before falling to the ground.

 

What is even more interesting is that when tests are conducted on these birds and fish, it is always found that the fish have not been poisoned, and the water quality is acceptable. As for the birds, they have all died from blunt force trauma and internal bleeding, and they were dead before they hit the ground. That means something killed them in the air. It just happens to have started on New Years Eve, and right around the stroke of midnight. Really? Does that not trip a multitude of red flags for anyone else, or is it just me?

 

One thing is for certain, we are going to hear a multitude of “generic” reasons as to why this is happening. The government will try to down play this as much as they can. One thing any government will not, and cannot have is their citizens feeling like their world is out of control. Right now, everyone’s world is totally out of control. No one has any answers, but there are plenty of theories.

 

Are all the recent floods and earthquakes, which have been increasing in frequency and in the amount of lives lost and destruction caused, the “birth pains” that are to signal the beginning of the end and the return of Christ which he told His disciples on the Mount of Olives, over 2000 years ago, and of which we can find in the book of Matthew in chapter 24?

 

No one really knows, but we do know that we don’t know what is happening to the birds as they are beaten and killed by the thousands in mid-air. No one really knows what is killing thousands upon thousands of fish and crabs while they are swimming in waters all over the planet. With that in mind, how long until it starts happening to human beings. I mean, are we really all that different biologically than these other creatures. What kills them can probably kill us as well. Will we really be all that surprised to wake up one morning and after firing up our computers, loading that browser just to have “1,000 people mysteriously killed overnight” jump out at us as we read the first headline of the day? How long until that happens, and what then?

 

I have included a link with some of the facts of what is transpiring around the world as this is written. Read it people, read it well.

Too Much On My Plate

September 19, 2010 at 3:41 am (Really interesting world events)

I am a full time online college student. I attend school at the University of Phoenix. I am just weeks away from getting my Associates Degree in IT, with an emphasis on computer networking and telecommunications. I will be going on for another two years to get my Bachelor’s Degree as well. I am also a full time employee. I work at a foundry called Brillion Iron Works, Inc. I work 8-10 hours a day, six days a week. I am also married and have a son.

I have managed to average a 3.7 G.P.A. but I am afraid I am at the end of my rope. I am so burnt out it isn’t even funny. I never get enough sleep, I don’t care about my job too much any more, and I really lost most of my drive when it comes to doing my assignments for school. One big problem I have is that no one in my family really seems to understand how hard what I am doing really is. They don’t know what it is like to put in a hard 9 hours at work, then come home to do advanced algebra, when you can’t keep your eyes open at your laptop. All you want to do is go to sleep, but you can’t because you have another 1500 words to go on a paper you are writing.

I keep telling myself that it will all be worth it in the end, but will it? I don’t know how much more I can take of this. I need a break, and I need it soon!

Pirate attack on the same American ship

November 18, 2009 at 4:02 pm (Really interesting world events)

Can you believe the pirates off the coast of Somalia attacked the same American ship that they tried to take 7 months ago?  Again, they were not successful.  This time, there were armed security guards on board to repel the pirates.

I am really glad the American ships fight back and that no pirate was ever able to take a ship flying the American flag.  It says a lot about America’s image.  It sends a “America is still a force which is different from the rest of the world, a force you don’t want to mess with”.  I think this is really important.  I don’t understand why all the ships in that area are not armed.

Seriously, these pirates are kids running around in little boats with light arms.  Mount a couple of 50 caliber machine guns around the ship and the pirates won’t get near any of them.  It would be cheaper than paying millions in ransom just to get your ship back.

Hats off to the security and crew of the Maersk Alabama!
