I thought I'd wax a little Biblical today. As many of you know, my very first book was a commentary on Revelations entitled The Noah Syndrome
. I was quite struck by the fact that the descriptions given by the alleged "John of Patmos" were so similar to the descriptions of the plagues in Egypt as reported in Exodus and that is what started my research into cataclysms, Earth Changes, etc. That was back in the mid 80s; a lot of water has gone over the dam and under the bridge since then and my most recent book, Comets and the Horns of Moses
covers the topic more broadly with scientific backing for what is likely to come on the Earth in the not-too-distant future. Following that volume, my research helper, Pierre Lescaudron, wrote Earth Changes and the Human-Cosmic Connection
based on certain ideas that had developed in "Comets and the Horns..." which he understood a lot better than I did so I said "you write it!"
Anyway, as the horror increases daily on our planet and I feel more and more like I have awakened into a nightmare because of the rampant psychopathy on an almost global scale; as I observe the back and forth between Israel and the US, Israel and Gaza, the US and Russia, the manipulations of the US in Ukraine; Ukraine against its own people; wars in Africa, ISIS in Iraq; the growing peril of Ebola (and probably worse to come); the onward march of global climate change (not warming, oncoming Ice Age) burning, blasting, destroying; one thing keeps running through my head: Revelations Chapter 18. You see, even if the religious parts of the Bible, all the God said/did stuff, is hokum in my opinion, I still think that there were some fundamental texts that were utilized to create Judaism/Christianity/Islam, and those texts were descriptions of real events - cataclysmic events that we haven't seen the likes of since Rome was destroyed by similar processes. So, even if the book of Revelations might have been written much later, (and I don't think that Jehovah/Yahweh/any other God was doing things, and I think that 'angels' were actually descriptions of comets), I do think that it is possible that the Information Fundament of our reality can inform and inspire writers in ways we don't understand. That is, literary foreshadowing, drawing on unknown characteristics of the Cosmic Information Field, might be a valid channel of real prophecy.
