Wow. Our experiment is off to a great start—let's see if we can finish it off sooner than expected.
At day 64, the Gulf spill could surely be described as a catastrophe "of biblical proportions." But apparently there are those out there who believe it is, in fact, a sign that the end is nigh.
Today I stumbled on The World Prophecy website, which from what I gather is a conspiracy-themed site with a special focus on the end of the world. The site's "apocalypse" section asks and then answers the important question:
Is the oil spill in the bible?
Yes it is:
Revelation 16:3 The second angel poured out his bowl into the sea, and it became blood like that of a dead man; and every living thing in the sea died.
I've been trying to keep on top of the various conspiracies related to the spill, and there are quite a few. The Bermuda Triangle? Check. FEMA trailers? Check. BP caused the spill on purpose? Check. Environmentalists blew up the Deepwater Horizon? Check.
