I was watching the history channel, and they were talking about how wormwood is a meaning for star or possibly comet or meteorite in the bible. I checked out this link About the Wormwood Spoken of in the Book of Revelations , and it says that possibly that wormwood in the Book of Revelations may pertain to Chernobyl meltdown in the USSR. Anyone have a idea of what wormwood may really mean?

"Wormwood" is a STAR in Revelation 8:11. It will cause a third part of all spring water on earth to turn bitter and many people will die from drinking it. I believe this is a prophecy that is yet to come in the last 7 years (Daniel's 70th Week). It is one of the natural disasters in the 7 Trumpets that will usher in the rise of the Antichrist to World power very quickly.

The Bible called it a star and it fits perfectly with the leaked out news about Planet X! PX is a brown dwarf that is believed to be our sun's companion star. In the Universe majority of star systems is binary... where there are 2 stars... and our solar system is one of them!

Planet X was a discovered in 1983 and NASA made a press release; however, within days it was pulled and they have been silence about it ever since.

Interesting concept. Brown dwarf would definitely cause objects in the Ort belt to fall into the inner solar systems. Would do so by knocking them out of their outer solar system orbits.

Wormwood means bitterness. The bitter water of this third trumpet judgment will be so poisonous that many people will die from drinking it. The star described here could also be a thermonuclear weapon.

I saw the same program today as well.

Wormwood, as used in the Book of Revelations, was the name given to a particular star that would render havoc to the Earth by poisoning a third of the waters, making it bitter and unfit to drink. Evidently, two-thirds of the water would remain drinkable though. Exactly how a star would make one-third of the water turn bitter isn't explained. This link compares several English translations and commentaries about the text.
Revelation 8:11 the name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters turned bitter, and many people died from the waters that had become bitter.

So why "wormwood"? Wormwood is a perennial herb found in Eurasia and north Africa. The pure oil from it can be quite poisonous, but used in small or diluted amounts for a variety of purposes.
Artemisia absinthium - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Not too many stars or comets fall to the ground, although meteorites would certainly fit the description. But back then, it would've been thought of a being a star. Even now, we still sometimes call them "shooting stars".

Making a connection of a mysterious "star" falling from heaven as a means to deliver something bitter and poisonous that would kill many men (or people), naming it "Wormwood" seems fitting for an apocolyptic scenario. It might also help to look at the historical perspective as to what was going on at the time the book was thought to have been written.

The Book of Revelations contains a lot of symbolism, but that doesn't stop people these days from trying to make their own interpretations. Interestingly though, some people seem to overlook is that was thought it could be a far off young galaxy, a comet, a distant 10th planet (Planet X), or a protostar (brown dwarf). The latter two seemed to catch the eye of some people as being Planet X or Nibiru that's on a collision course due to destroy the Earth in 2012.

However, if you look at the 1984 Washington Post article (posted above) there was no indication the thing is on any such collision course. The article clearly states: “It’s not incoming mail,” Cal Tech’s Neugebauer said. “I want to douse that idea with as much cold water as I can.”

The following articles from Universe Today may be worth reading which explains where the idea if a collision in 2012 came from concerning the celestial object. Draw your own conclusions about whether this is or isn't the same thing from the Book of Revelations. In my opinion there's not even the slightest connection apart from wild imagination.

The telescope at the South Pole was installed there simply because the atmosphere at that location gives a clearer view of the sky than anywhere else in the world. This planet X bs is popular on sites like Paranoia.com, and other conspiracy sites....I don't believe a word of it.

Here is the page on Avebury crop circle... possibly a message about an object entering into our solar system in 2012. If you get small icons on the side just click on it to enlarge.

First of all, if it's mentioned in the Book of Revelation, it was never meant to be taken literally in the first place. That's just a collection of apocalyptic writing--it was never meant to be taken as factual.

Wormwood is the basic substance used for the creation of Absynthe, a hallucinatory concoction banned from most civilizations because of the bizarre actions of those under it's influence.
