This blog is just to record events that show how close we are to the end of the world. As things happens in higher frequency, people are getting numb to everything. If you look at the bigger events in the last decade it should send shivers up and down your spine.
- There was the Tsunami in the Indian Ocean killing around 300,000 people from Thailand to Shri Lanka.
- There was the attack on 9/11 on the World Trade Center that was, in my opinion, the largest terrorist attack ever. 2976 Americans murdered, 6000+ wounded.
- Hurricane Katrina wasn’t the largest by any means, but the damage to new Orleans was devastating at a level that amazed me. 1830+ confirmed dead, 700+ missing, $80 billion loss.
- Homosexuality, which was at one time illegal (at least sodomy was), now is not only condoned, but we allow same sex marriages. But wait, there is more, family magazine put out an article stating that families where both parents are women are much better for the children than a normal heterosexual couple.
- World wide recession.
- Earthquakes at a level unheard of. Earthquakes triggered the deadliest disasters of the past decade and remain a major threat for millions of people worldwide who live in some of the world’s megacities, the United Nations said. A UN-backed study said nearly 60 percent of about 780,000 people killed by disasters in 2000 to 2009 died during earthquakes. Add to that the number that were killed in tsunami’s caused by earthquakes and it’s just scary. Resource
- The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
