Science vs. the Jesus Freak

It has been recently posted in several news blogs, videos uploaded and newspapers have squawked about it,…
the mystery of the dead birds and fish.
Myself, I have read about four different articles on the subject just today.
So, what is the mystery all about?
Well, it seems that for no CLEAR apparent reason, birds are dropping out of the skies, simultaneously, from here all the way to Sweden and all within days of each other, all within the same week of the changing new year. Not just hundreds have fallen, but thousands.
Running along a similar time frame, there are reports that close to the same numbers of fishes are going belly up in rivers here in the U.S. and on the beaches of Auckland, New Zealand.

Of course wildlife preservationists and naturalists, along with scientists have been looking into the causes of these unnatural events. Many different scientific speculations have been made as well. Yet, nothing conclusive has been found and further testing of the carcasses is needing to be done to rule out parasitic influences and/or governmental and corporate tampering via testing/dumping.

As the geological pathologists take a closer look, others have begun making their own speculations as to what is the cause of this strange happening. Most of the speculation being done by members of the Christian religion.

Since the broadcast of the incidents, search engines have been blown up, hundreds of thousands of people curious to find how this relates to the signs of the end of times in relation to the bible’s book of Revelation, the seven seals, and the Mayan calendar. Some find correlation between the facts and others feel there is not enough evidence to prove that this can even be called a sign, saying the Jesus freaks are putting it out of proportion as they did with the Nostradamus’ theory that Y2K was the end of the world (they tried to mix theories of this French apothecary/reputed seer, with that of metaphoric signs to watch for declaring the end times).

So,…what is the information they are going on?

The Christians look at the breaking of the sixth and seventh seals.

The sixth seal deals with cosmic disturbances such as the sun turning black and the moon turning blood-red, the waters turning up dead fish.

July 11, 2010 was the last total solar eclipse another due in November of 2011.

There was a total eclipse of the moon just last week (yes, I was up watching) that caused the moon to seem to turn a blood-red. It was the first time that particular lunar eclipse had happened in over 300 some-odd years, but few argue the moon’s turning red to be the dark, red, winter harvest moon that can sometimes be seen low in the sky.

Their reasoning for listing the seventh seal? Silence in the heavens. Some look at most of what is mentioned in the bible as metaphor. This has led some to believe that there may be correlation in the first wave of global bird deaths….no winged creature flying about and the heavens becoming still and silent.

Well,..after touching the tip of the religious iceberg, where does science stand on all this?

There are other factors involved such as the weather in these locations, but the weather was not so much an issue in any of the mass deaths, mostly normal conditions for this season.

In some places, it was thought celebratory fireworks to be the cause, yet all the deaths could not be ruled conclusive by this.

In yet another area, it was speculated they had all flown into power-lines, breaking their heads and necks and falling to the ground, yet just as many were found without bodily damage.

Then, news of mass bird and fish deaths broke out halfway around the world in Sweden and New Zealand, just days after the occurrences here in the United States.

The U.S. Geological Services and the Feds are currently investigating this mystery to once and for all settle the matter.

Some testing on the dead animals may take longer than a couple of days.

In the meantime,….

while so many are reading up on the issue out of curiosity or religious fear, here are three articles I have looked at myself.

If anything, it is a somewhat interesting read if you find yourself bored with the dailies of work. Is it all just another crock of superstitious B.S., stupid human mishaps or is there something new and deadly scientifically affecting the natural selection of our environment?

    I don’t know about you, but this freaks me out. I think the governments are up to no good. All these animals, in different locations, en masse? Too much for simple explanations…like they bumped into a powerline…all of them? At once? lol Come now. I’ll be there’s some experiment going on..maybe with sound or something of that nature.
    And…have a wonderful day! lol 🙂

    Thanks, and you may be right…some kind of sonic device being emitted…good thought! And you are the second person to read this and the only one to leave a comment. I had been curious to hear people’s thoughts on it all, but I suppose they are indifferent towards it all. Actually,…after writing the blog,I feel somewhat indifferent to it myself. I guess that would be due to yesterday having dove into the readings on it and today there not being any other information on it. And as news is news and always looking to be “one-up’d” by the next story,…the exploding package in the governor’s office of homeland security in Maryland took center stage.
    You also have a wonderful day!

    Thanks for this post. I mostly agree with what you are saying. I have been talking about this subject a lot lately with my father so likely this will get him to see my point of view. Fingers crossed!
