I just have the feeling that we tend to label deadly sinkholes, collapsing mountains, dieing bees, mudslides, massive rainfalls with floodings etc etc as "normal" just b/c we become indifferent by the massive quantities of disasters going on everywhere. I mean, if we look back at history there was never a period of that many simultaneous and never "heard-of-before" catastrophes arriving at the same time. Plus we have like boiling armed conflicts and potential global diseases coming at us with an intensity never seen before.
All of this happens while people´s faith in Gods have weakened to the point that it is almost extinguished. Actually the timing of all this is just like what is said in prophecies about people becoming worse and worse before the end, while natural and manmade disasters increase all the time. Some people might say this is just "normal" but if they look back at our 5 000 years of civilization there never was a time like this before. It is unique in terms of science, atheism, climate, divcorces, natural disasters etc.
Just wanted to remind everyone that these times are unique and in unique times there is bound to be unique events happening.
