And I feel fine

You know, there have been a lot of storms this past week, with Toronto having two of the biggest thunderstorms I can ever remember having here, but I think that ABC news is revealing a little too much about the evangelicalization of America in this typically pointless article titled “Apocalypse Now? Floods, Tornadoes, Locusts”.

Weather of Biblical Proportions Sets Off Debate Among Theologians and Scientists… In the beginning, God created heaven and Earth, and he saw that it was good. So begins the Book of Genesis, the dramatic opener of the Old Testament. But things went downhill from there.

God’s wrath seems at work these days, as the heavens and Earth have unleashed earthquakes in China, a cyclone in Burma, killer tornadoes and record floods across the U.S. and even a plague of locusts (cicadas) in New England. Biblical imagery is all over the news these days — even including a story last week of a New York baby being enwrapped by a snake in its crib, harking back to evil lurking in the Garden of Eden.

Yeah, I’m real worried.

My neighbor apparently particularly pissed off “God”, or at least his car did. I’ve been posting lots of great vehicles over at the kit car blog, maybe they should “downgrade” to something more fun.

    In the past two weeks we’ve had a tornado that wiped out several homes and the majority of a small town which was followed by major flooding that caused three major towns to become submerged. But still, nearly every person interviewed on mainstream local news thanks god in some way or another… I’m still waiting for someone who lost their home say that it was all gods fault, hah

    On a different note. My 2 year old son thinks your image with the long beard on the main blog page is a kite, :D

    “We’re just kind of at God’s mercy right now, so hopefully people that never prayed before this, it might be a good time to start,”

    what about starting to think what we are actually doing to the environment? even if it seems a bit too late for that.

    I liked the pictures, though – metereology is such a fascinating subject on its own!

    I’ve been following the foretold apocalypse events since about 1995. At first it didn’t make much of an impreswsion on me, it was only interesting. But over the years I kept hearing the same things from many sources. Then I kept track of what was being said. Some of the forcasts came about as time unfolded, some didn’t. As a result of hearing more and more, I even built an underground shelter and stocked it with food.

    Then for some reason I decided to be come a nomadic campground host. I sold evrything that I had built up and got a new truck and 20′ trailer. I’ve been living this life style and it has been good.

    So now it’s back to the foretold events that I’ve been keeping track of. More and more are coming about; the economy goung bad, food shortages, extreme weather, winds, etc. So here I sit very vulnerable in my little travel trailer, and having to fill my gas tank all the time cause I live in remote places and am totally dependent on the “system” to stay alive. It seems I sure screwed up! I left a very sceure, well prepared life style for one that isn’t. People aren’t coming up camping as they did before and I feel I’m wasting my time here. And indeed I am – so I’m about to pach up and move back to the little remote community where I was all set up. I’ll join an elderly lady who has always been one to be self-sufficient and prepared. She’s now 84 and could use my help and expertese. She’s got goats, chickens and 2 calves and gets more milk, eggs and meat than she can eat. We’ll plant her garden again and be prepared as we wait it out.

    Unlike my friend Shannon, I’m not scared, I’m irritated that I didn’t just hold on. I was on the right track, but for some unknown reason, (maybe I was bored) decided strike out on a new adventure. I’m still a believer because it is sure all coming true!

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
