\\Jesus, will You give me something on this terrible oil spill, before I bow out, or have a heart-attack, or high-blood pressure? When are we, the people, gonna learn not to trust man, or look to man to solve our problems? That's it. A message from GOD!

So are these "Great American Patriots?"

Oh, and hes not Kenyan.. How can you be so wrong so often?
---NurseRobert on 5/27/10

Well at minimum they served their country. They were legit citizens of this country. The did not worship/join Anti-Christ churches for 22 years.
Veterans would not want a socialist poser error to desecrate what they died to preserve anyway...the republic for which they stood....if they could be asked.
Poser never honored our flag or country. He honors his own,(pause for spit) symbol.

Not Kenyan? His kenyan family thinks he is. He visited them, the kenyan president who stated they were putting up memorials at the hospital he was born in. Huhhh?

Gosh, Donna66, you are definately missing Sharon's point.

I think that the politicians and world leaders do not care about us. I think that we are heading for some rough times. They say that the recession is over....you have some nervous spanish woman on tv saying the recession is improving or over.

They say they are looking at solutions or trying to solve the oil spill.

Like the recession, I doubt it will be solved. They want to try a risky solution, but this is real life, not a movie.

Ok Nurse gives us you left wing libby spin on this one...---John on 5/27/10

He's NOT refusing (who demanded that he go?) he chose to go to Chicago instead. As a veteran,I don't see this as disrespectful.

As far as him being "the 1st president in history" to so..

George HW Bush never laid attended a Memorial Day service in Arlington. He spend his 1st year in Rome and the last 3 in Kennebunkport "having a quiet weekend at home." Dan Quayle laid the wreaths.

Ronald Reagan skipped the ceremony 4 times. (Granted one of those was after he was shot, so that's understandable).

So are these "Great American Patriots?"

Oh, and hes not Kenyan.. How can you be so wrong so often?
---NurseRobert on 5/27/10


John:


According to the "libby" AP: On Monday, Obama is scheduled to participate in a Memorial Day ceremony at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery in Elwood, Ill.

In Obamas absence, Vice President Joe Biden will participate in the customary wreath-laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery outside Washington.

When will your off topic smear campaign end? He laid the wreath in Washington last year when he was in town, and he is giving honor somewhere else this year. You need to learn to tell the truth.
---obewan on 5/27/10


\\Obama REFUSES to attend the Memorial Day Service at The Arlington National Cementary. Where the President is suppose to put the wreath on the "Tomb of The unknown Solder" \\

John, can you tell us by which law the President is bound to do this?

Bet you can't!

And just what does this have to do with the prophetic significance (or lack thereof) of the Gulf oil spill last month?

Can you show us a connection?

Ok Nurse gives us you left wing libby spin on this one...

Obama REFUSES to attend the Memorial Day Service at The Arlington National Cementary. Where the President is suppose to put the wreath on the "Tomb of The unknown Solder"

The 1st president in history to do so. Instead he going to have a quiet weekend at home.

So Nurse do you call him A GREAT "AMERICAN" PATRIOT for disrespecting all the vets that lost their lives to protect freedom.

FREEDOM??? Oh... I forgot, that is something he is against. That would explain why the Kenyan refuses to go.

My point exactly. Except, it was John this time who is just as bad.

I think it is sick dirty pool when someone is willing to exploit a disaster like this one in an attempt to have political "gain".

There will be no winners. Only losers.
---obewan on 5/27/10


I have never seen such foolishness before. Either you know the meaning of the prophecies or you do not.
Every disaster is not an end time prophecy.
The antichrist is not going to come and clean up oil spills.
The anti christ did not come at Y2K.
The anti christ did not come for 9/11.
One third of the fish is not going to die, actually there is oil spill into the ocean all the time, not on one area as this is, but oil, natural gass, and sulfur comes from the ocean bed all the time, and the
anti christ is not coming to clean up oil spills.

Either you have some idea what prophecy is speaking of or you do not.

It's a shame that christians have to guess at what Gods word says.
How many time are we going to cry wolf?

here is a truth I made up I believe it is all truth.

The Russians have more experience with deep water drilling than any one else. They have successfully used nuclear demolition charges to seal wells that have similar problems. There is an article about it in Komsomoloskaya Pravda, for March 27, 2020. The article is in Russian but it will translate into English using the Google Tool Bar's Translate Function.

The Russians have also made agreements with Cuba for establishing support operations their for their drilling in the Gulf of Mexico the drilling will be outside of the US 12 mile limit so we can regulate it.

The Gulf of Mexico oil spill won't be the end of the world. Let's hope that companies learn from this accident.

The U.S. Navy has suffered several sunken submarine accidents. Things like the McCann Rescue Chamber were invented to rescue survivors. However, deep-water accidents are still a puzzle. The water pressure at those depths complicates everything.

If British Petroleum (BP) invents a way to successfully handle deep-water accidents, their methods will be very marketable.

I do agree that some mistakes were made. At the same time, I want BP to learn from their terrible accident. Hopefully, we can learn how to prevent another such accident somewhere else. And how to deal with another accident if it does occur.
---Augie on 5/26/10


It is possible (even probable) that the oil could eventually spread to a third of the oceans. The latest development is that the sea floor around the leak is collapsing (BP spillcam on youtube).

The reddish-brown sludge that is like the blood of a man that is already dead is also full of very toxic chemicals/dispersants that is making clean-up volunteers sick. Also, oxygen levels in the ocean are decreasing.

There will also likely be more volcanic ash causing a 'volcanic winter' (look it up on wikipedia) causing a third of the sun, etc. not to shine so that daytime/daylight will be shortened eventually.

Remember the Exxon Tiger?

"Exxon Is Energy -- Energy For A STRONG America".

It has been several decades since I last heard that advertising slogan. However, America depends even MORE on oil than ever before!

No, the Gulf of Mexico oil spill is not the end of the world, off-shore drilling, the reign of the Big Oil companies, etc.

It is already widely known that America is still committed to more off-shore oil exploration and drilling.

Despite all the damage from the oil slick, the governor of Louisiana confirms that his state supports the oil industry.

And so on . . . the oil spill was just a "speed bumb" in the never-ending quest for more oil.

Common sense for larger families is something like a mini-van. A Dodge Caravan gets 24mpg vs. 12 for a SUV. My cousin loves his and it fits 8 people.

China has a mini-van that hauls 8-10 and gets 30 mpg.

-John-

John, a quick Google News search on Obama and big oil turned up 13,479 articles. This doesn't even include television and liberal MSNBC which first noted the story. What delusion are you screaming about?

Obama also took in more donations from Wall Street and the Armed Forces than McCain and that story was not first noted in the conservative Unification Church owned Washington Times, but instead the liberal NY Times which also first reported Whitewater.
So much for the liberal media.

John:

If you believe that hooey I am going to call you an evolutionist since your number is probably based upon ESTIMATES of seepage over hundreds of thousands of years of Earth history. And, it is an ESTIMATE that can not be accurately measured. It is an extrapolation.

The oil from a spill is highly concentrated and ruins specific areas of costal life whereas oil from worldwide seeps is not concentrated and can be broken down over long periods of time.

Are you the watchman who cries wolf?
---francis on 5/25/10


Steveng:

While one cannot categorically say "we are not living in the end times", one CAN look at certain events and say that they are NOT the ones prophesied in the Bible, due to their scope.

For example, the oil spill in the gulf was caused neither by a mountain or similarly large object being thrown into the sea, or by a large flaming star or comet or meteorite hitting the sea. While there is great potential for disaster to marine life, there is not nearly enough oil to destroy 1/3 of all marine life on the entire planet.

There are many disasters and tribulations and evil leaders that may be harbingers of the Tribulation or the Beast, but the real thing will be MUCH MUCH worse.

obewan -- Front wheel drive is good. But 4 wheel drive is better in deep snow, or in mud, or even on a sandy beach. Many places, roads are NOT plowed in a timely manner and people with work to do cannot always wait for the snowplow. There's no "snowplow" to plow a farmer's fields.

It is laughably (or tragically) true that inexperienced drivers often make fools of themselves by overestimating 4 wheel drive. You can slide on ice with any vehicle! But I can remember times in Colorado when all civilian traffic was banned...except for 4 wheel drive. In the South where I now live, I have pulled out many a vehicle, larger than mine, stranded on a soft sandy beach.

Sadly, I have a little economy car now.

Where do you live..Miami? Don't most residents of northern states drive on snow?
What you say may be true of large east or west-coast cities, but in rural areas and small towns or cities all across the nation, MOST people have need of a truck or SUV at least some of the time.
---Donna66 on 5/24/10
There is LITTLE evidence that SUV's are better than a good front wheel drive in snow.

Most areas plow. Even in unplowed snow MANY people in SUV's think themselves invincible, drive to fast for contol or stopping, and end up upside down in the ditch.

Most SUV's are two wheel drive so I will take front wheel drive any day over that.

HERE MY SOURCE OBEWAN...

The National Research Council (NRC) of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, "natural oil seeps contribute the highest amount of oil to the marine environment, accounting for 46 per cent of the annual load to the world's oceans. Several thousand times more than is currently leaking from the BPs Horizon Oil Rig in the Gulf of Mexico -- Although they are entirely natural, these seeps significantly alter the nature of nearby marine environments. For this reason, they serve as natural laboratories where researchers can learn how marine organisms adapt over generations of chemical exposure. Seeps illustrate how dramatically animal and plant population levels can change with exposure to ocean petroleum".

10 Then the third angel sounded: And a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. 11 The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the water, because it was made bitter.

This is the major reason why christians don't believe that we are living in the end times.

Are you 100% certain in your heart that the events you listed are not part of end time events - even the beginning of sorrows? This one event can lead to another more disasterous event, and this more disasterous event could lead into another even more disasterous event. Many prophesies in the bible start out small and unnoticable and increase in frequency and distruction.

You are surely the watchman that does not blow his horn when he sees trouble coming.
---Steveng on 5/24/10


Christians today don't have a clue about what events are or are not part of the end time scenario. They conjure up false visions of what the end times should be using today's standards (to understanding prophesy), movies and publications. How do you know if what you see in today's world is similar to Noah's time? Did you live during Noah's time to accurately compare Noah's time to today? This is one reason why we have prophets/watchmen today, but no one is listening because of people who say "don't worry, these are not end time events."

Also, christians today don't want to believe that they will live throught the tribulation and make up an excape (the rapture) to comfort their own souls.
---Steveng on 5/24/10


The oil spill has nothing to do with prophecy - Francis.
Thank you Francis.

Obama's so-called Katrina is a stark reality from conservatives that government can't do everything. Government can't plug oil wells a mile deep and its not in the Feds DNA, so I'm not quite sure I understand the disengenous fist pounding from the Republican Louisiana governor who condemned government just months ago and is now screaming from the bayou for its help. Does he want government to create yet another department of well plugging within the Army Corp? I'm neither conservative or liberal but governance is a lot more difficult than campaign slogans. Slogans are black and white when life is really a series of grays.

Hey Obewan and Mima, I found the observation from the Bush adminsitrations oil scientist guy quite revealing noting the leak "CAN'T BE STOPPED." Sorry I can't remember his name.
He remarked either the well would have to run dry or the pressure gradients must equalize to stop the mile deep oil volcano, and that has never been accomplished.
I guess its akin to plugging up Old Faithful where plugging would simply build up pressure beneath the temporary solution that would eventually explode again without leveling the pressure gradients.
Very interesting and so obvious its missed. Its also very sobering.
---larry on 5/24/10


The numbers are not all in yet, but historically there have been quite a many large oil spills: On January 21, 1991 the Gulf war oil spill spilled about one million four hundred and thirty thousand tons of crude oil into the Persian Gulf. And on July 19, 1979 in Trinidad about 287,000 tons of crude oil spilled after a collision off Tobago between the Atlantic Empress and the Aegean Captain. So although oil spills may kill off many oceanic and aquatic life, they are not one of God's apocalyptic plagues listed in the Bible. For God himself will have his angels pour out his own divine plagues upon the earth as detailed in the scriptures.
---Eloy on 5/24/10

A quick Google search will show that natural oil seepage is as little as 8 times the Exxon Valdez spill over HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF YEARS. Now, if you believe in a young Earth it is a fraction of that yet. And the Gulf spill is expected to exceed the Valdez.

You are trying to trivialize a serious disaster.

There is also the argument that the trucking industry could be used less, and we could go back to transporting on the railroads. No need to have trucks on a lot of the long hauls when we have trains that can ship a lot of goods.

As for SUVs, I am not sure I would not be tempted to get one, because of the ability to schlep a lot of stuff in one trip. My little Civic, while great on mileage, 35 highway, can't haul a lot of people, or large items.

Obewan- the most inefficient use of oil may be in toys not cars.
In cars its not the type of cars but single person trips, particularly on expressways of any model that are most inefficient. Nothing is more unwise fiscally than to widen an interstate, turnpike or expressway, in an effort to increase the speed of mostly single person trips. Besides, it's miles not size. An Accord that travels 250 miles per week is not more efficient than an Escalade that travels 125. A Smart car buzzing from mall to mall is not a more efficient use of oil than the semi which delivers veggies to the supermarket.

Obewan my friend, the 3% is the estimated reserves, not current finds, in the U.S. and includes Alaska.
The RESERVES are the reasons we go to war not current production rates.
Estimates
U.S.including Alaska 26 billion
Saudi Arabia and the Emirates 255 billion
Iraq and Kuwait 194 billion.
However only about 15 percent of our daily use comes from the Middle East, the rest comes Mexico, Canada, Venezuela, Nigeria, Ecuador and others.
The 26 billion is about 3% and would last us about 4 years on its own.
Don't forget about half the oil we produce ironically is traded on markets for overseas. Its something the "Drill, baby Drill" wing nuts are loathe to admit.

If Im not mistaken there is a HUGE earthquake mentioned prior to this event in Revelations.

Might be The Big One

micha9344: "A catastophic world-wide flood seems to be worse than what's going on today, or ever for that matter."

Natural catastophes are but a sign, what's really more important is the catastophes in the hearts of people. It's the sins of the world which grows every day that is the cause of these worldly problems which grow every day.

We are dangerously close to the beginning of the end. Rationalization always engaged in by the deniers will one day have run its course and the awful truth will be before mankind. But those of us who are going in the rapture will be long gone when the final bell rings!!!

Where is Ralph to scream and yell with his drill baby drill mantra? After all, we need all that offshore oil to fuel our SUV's.

SUV's waste more than 3% of the world oil supply. Offshore oil if fully exploited may only supply 3% more oil according to geophysicists.

Looks to me like the solution is a simple one.

Just a reminder, the world ends for people each and every day. The fact is: if the flesh is born, it WILL die. The big question is will your soul live on? Best to be ready everyday, for everyday is judgement day for someone!

||Can you be absolutely, positively sure that it isn't biblically related? Could it be the beginning of sorrows, an event that could trigger another more devastating event and that more devastating event triggers a much more devastating event?||

What I'm saying is that the Gulf oil spill is not the fulfillment of Revelation 8.

No more than that.

I think that Napoleon was the Anti-Christ, wait no, Queen "bloody" Marry was, wait, no The Black Plague was the tribulation, wait, it was the Civil War, or the Great war, no, WWII, no, wait it had to have been Vietnam. Still waiting for something that the bible tells us already happed, why did God quit speaking his "word" after Revelation was written? You all have been suckered into this phenomenon that is hard to study out of, but don't take an English translators word for something that was written in a different language, time and culture.

Christians don't have a clue what the end times are to be like. They think we are not in the tribulation, but are close to it. They conjure up visions of destruction as shown in movies (although movies may not be far from the truth). Could the time of Noah be just as bad as the world is today?

Funny Question!

This reminds me of a non-Catholic pastor who told me that "not thinking about what could happen will prevent anything bad from happening". Oh, Really?

This oil spill "accident" proves that that pastor was 0% correct. The oil company BP was absolutely sure that some safeguards were unnecessary and, therefore, skipped. Opps!!!

I believe that the fact that the unexpected actually did happen "proves" that people's thinking can come back to "haunt" them.

However, I don't think that that has any Biblical significance. We just need to realize that our own thinking isn't "fool proof". :<(

Once again a good example of good and evil in this world. First the evil part, it will soon come out that the oil company pushed the rig to fast, they did not care about safety just profit. Now the good, watch how people do what they can to rescue the wildlife. End time, no. End profit of 54 million a day, yes.

Cluny: I totally agree with you.

Mima: The sky is falling Chicken Little. You crack me up sometimes with your finding the doom of prophecy in every nightly newscast.

I think we need to stop using so much oil and that it isn't safe to do offshore oil drilling. That's my judgement, and I don't need scripture to figure it out. Why would anyone else?

Since we have not had a third of the plants on earth burned up yet, the Gulf oil spill cannot be the burning mountain that fell into the sea, killing a third of sea creatures.

For more information, please read Revelation 8.

The oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico is a regritable weather caused by careless or material failures.

To even suggest that is is a Biblically related phenom is pure lunacy.
---Friendly_Blogger on 5/19/10


Mima,

I feel sorry for all the animals and wildlife that will be killed by the spilled oil. The same thing has happened in several other oil spills. Too many to metion in this short blog posting.

I think that the Gulf Of Mexico oil spill is an example of how even the "best" of human beings can't possibly predict, or understand, just "what" might happen. Good or Bad.

I will never understand how much this world seems to ignore God, whether giving Him "thanks", or asking Him for help!!! Maybe this Oil Spill "accident" will open some people's eyes to God.
