Dont you all find it rather ironic that almost every sunday night you can find a new "super-disaster" movie on TV? I certainly do. Tonight, 11/13, is "Category 7 Storm" night, i remember over the summer i watched "Super-Earthquake" night and "Yellowstone Eruption" night. My mom(who, sadly to say, is not very religious, actually, she is not religious at all) enjoys these quite a bit, and i get to hear one every night while she watches it. I remember there was one where three storm systems collided over Chicago(my city...ouch) and produced some crazy effects.
Anyway, i think its almost mocking (perhaps satan is making these movies so people dont realize its all from the Bible) that these movies are being made at a time like this, but of course its ironic. Because in a way this is showing pieces of what is going to happen during the tribulation to all those alive today. I suppose that most people will not see these movies and pick up a Bible to read it concerning prophecy, but all these movies are showing the fulfillment of various prophecies regarding the Tribulation(although the prophecies arent' specific, and i do not have enough of a knowledge of the bible to give you verses). Anyway, i just thought i would mention the clear Irony in these movies and see if anyone else feels the same way or could put some scripture up to accent my post.

\"A time like this.\"
Soooo how is \"this\" time different than any other time?? Because you're alive now to be cognizant of the weather??

Look! Bush stubbed his toe! The prophesies are being fulfilled!

<<< although the prophecies arent' specific >>>
Then they aren't very good prophecies. \"A major storm will hit a major city\" is not a prophecy, it's a \"duh\" statement - unless you specify a city and time (and not three days in advance when everyone knows it's coming).

heh heh heh.... mocha must really be Alanis Morisette. Same total lack of grasp in the meaning of the word \"ironic\"

The only way to avoid another tribulation is to root out all mutations and read Nicholson's Repentances twice a day!
Bonus points to anyone who knows what I'm talking about.

I like how the post closes asking for other Fundies to provide any scrptural basis for the weather being relevant to these \"prophecies\" about which she admits to being uninformed.

Of course if you watch the Scifi channel, you're going to see disaster movies. How stupid can you be?

That does just mean people like super disaster stories since the time the babble was written (and perhaps before)

I really don't have the time or inclanation to read the most important and revealing book ever written but I've got tons of time to complain about tv shows.
I can give you the best reasons we're seeing disastor scenarios on tv:
1)The increasing availability of CGI technology
2)End-timers desire to see mass destruction
I can understand why they're making a connection to the Bible and these disastor shows. Because even the most scientific ones seem to throw in references to the Apocalypse or end-time predictions. Many of them are completely based on Biblical or mythical stories.
I'm getting real sick of it myself. The fundamentalist Christians are muddying up many scienctific and historical programs with their nonsense.
