    The second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a huge mountain, all ablaze, was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea turned into blood, a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed. The third angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water — the name of the star is Wormwood.

    As an aside, it is interesting to know that Chernobyl means mugwort, or wormwood, in Ukranian.

    Most astronomers agree that we are probably overdue for a good-sized asteroid strike, or at least that something will hit Earth sooner or later. I submit that this is probably why our Moon is so large in relation to the size of the Earth. Who knows how many "big ones" were blocked by the Moon in the past.

    It's more than mere chance that our species has not been totally wiped out by a big rock , like the dinosaurs ...

    We've been on the planet as a species for a mere 200,000yrs or so. The dinosaurs were around for over 150 million years. We've existed for 0.001% of the time the dinosaurs were on this planet.
