Happy Hour News Briefs
Let’s look at the majesty of mathematics and how we hairless apes can track the movement of celestial bodies in the sky:
A total solar eclipse will cross the continental United States this summer, an event that hasn’t happened in roughly a century.
Everyone will experience on Aug. 21 at least 60 percent of the sun being covered and the resulting semidarkness. Those within about a 60-mile wide diagonal line from the Pacific Northwest through South Carolina will see the sky go dark and feel the temperature drop
In some areas of the country, the darkness will last more than two minutes and 30 seconds.
Isn’t that marvelous? How clever we are in demystifying the natural world and predicting these things using our oversized brains and… what’s that you say?
“From a biblical point of view, a solar eclipse is meant as a sign from God,” Biltz told WND. “In Genesis 1:14, God declared this to be so. It is a sign that is beyond man’s control, something he can’t manipulate. Solar eclipses become biblically and prophetically significant and relevant when man understands their timing according to the biblical calendar and where they happen. Then we look for the patterns.
“As the sun is larger than the moon, the sun represents the nations of the world and the moon represents the nation of Israel, as their calendar months are based on the cycle of the moon while the nations of the world follow the sun for their calendar. When there is a total solar eclipse, it is a warning to a specific nation or nations depending on its path.”
