Re- read your entire post. You'll see where the "all about me" comes in. Where you'll spend eternity is very important I'll say.

Moving along........

Why do scientists think something could be hidden beyond the edge of our solar system?

Snippet: A dark object may be lurking near our solar system, occasionally kicking comets in our direction. Nicknamed "Nemesis" or "The Death Star," this undetected object could be a red or brown dwarf star, or an even darker presence several times the mass of Jupiter. Why do scientists think something could be hidden beyond the edge of our solar system? Originally, Nemesis was suggested as a way to explain a cycle of mass extinction on Earth.

Eight earthquakes struck the Moro Gulf off Mindanao island in the southern Philippines today and one rocked the northern Indonesian island of Sumatra, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

Three of the eight quakes in the Moro Gulf measured more than magnitude seven, the USGS reported on its website. There were no immediate reports of casualties or damage, and tsunami warnings weren’t issued by the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center.

I wonder what your God has against this poor fellow... US Park Ranger Roy C. Sullivan from Virginia holds the record for the person most times struck by lightning - and living to tell the tale. Between 1942 and 1983, Roy has the dubious distinction of being struck by lightning seven times. He was known as the Human Lightning Rod. Do you think it's a sign?

What?! When was this? That is insane! Have you heard about the floods in Iowa, Chicago, & Boston this week?! I can't believe there are still people saying this is normal. Since when? I don't ever remember a time in my life there was this much floodings, earthquakes, and tornadoes. What strikes me as odd is that at the beginning of this year, the only thing that was happening was the Haiti & Chile earthquake. Fast foward to summer, you got all these tornadoes and floodings. What was it this year so far - Brazil, China, Nashville, Wisconsin, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Kansas, I mean who's next? I don't understand how all these states are suddenly flooding. I thought Florida was suppose to be the tropical state. Florida always gets hit by hurricanes and floods. I haven't heard about a single flood happening there. But Boston? Iowa? The bible was not playing when it said diverse places. I swear I think Jesus is going to surprise us all and come sooner than expected.

>Statistics out of context, are just like passages out of the bible, out of context, meaningless but useful in supporting which ever position is currently the bee under your bonnet

That's a quote to keep and repeat!

>when the concept of the world is ending is based soundly in mythology.

There's no sound basis for saying that. C. S. Lewis spent his entire life studying mythology and said that the Bible is not mythology.

I made that request 5 weeks ago. Still haven't been shown it. Why?!? Is it because such "evidence" doesn't really exist?
