Yet another coincidence, to make the intelligent ant thoughtful ponder what was known 2200 years ago, refined 1900, years ago, and presented as a line, first in the DAVIDIC PROPHECY, A and then in REVELATION:
" The Earth has entered a new period of extinction, a study by three US universities has concluded, and humans could be among the first casualties.
The report, led by the universities of Stanford, Princeton and Berkeley, said vertebrates were disappearing at a rate 114 times faster than normal.
The findings echo those in a report published by Duke University last year.
One of the new study's authors said: "We are now entering the sixth great mass extinction event."
The last such event was 65 million years ago, when dinosaurs were wiped out, in all likelihood by a large meteor hitting Earth.
"If it is allowed to continue, life would take many millions of years to recover and our species itself would likely disappear early on," said the lead author, Gerardo Ceballos."
The DAVIDIC called for half of all life forms to go extinct (die off): REVELATION reduced that figure to a third and specifically placed its occurrence in this century ... by my calculations, based on the Hebrew calender math covered in my book, GENESIS OF GENESIS, the events began in 1929, 1939, 2007/8, and have an event due in 2015/16 -- the latter falling in the year prior to the Hebrew New year which falls in 2017 and so being generally recognized in 2017 as the fall from recognized "global" status of a major national capital.
Ok, So the Pat Robertson types are quiet about prophecy fulfillment; The Islamic nutcases are using it for creating an Islamic State, so as to assert their portion of the prophecies/predictions; and the Republican are doing all they can to qualify Washington as the capital that falls. Republican actions are the basis for the conclusion in my book DEATH OVER LIFE.
Neat seeing science and international media say same thing from a different, unrelated, perspective. Not so neat to see a crazy, ancient, prediction, with an unexplained basis for being fact based, actually come true -- while those who should believe it are actually working to comply with the first possible outcome for themselves ... but that is my book SAINT PAUL'S JOKE -- a book which contributed to an historic event: the second time, in a 1700 year history, that a Pope Resigned.
Have fun kiddies ... if the pattern continues ... we are living out the ancient Chinese curse: MAY YOU LIVE IN INTERESTING TIMES.
