I'v been reading stuff in the Red Tide thread, and "Another" Fireball spotted over Florida" and had an idea.

Could it be possible that the fireballs in the sky are the cause of RedTide?


8:10 And the third angel sounded his trumpet: and there fell out of the heaven a great star, burning as a torch, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters.

Revelation 8:11
And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter. (KJV)


What do you guys think?

Definitions of Wormwood on the Web:

Heb. la'anah, the Artemisia absinthium of botanists. It is noted for its intense bitterness (Deut. 29:18; Prov. 5:4; Jer. 9:15; Amos 5:7). It is a type of bitterness, affliction, remorse, punitive suffering. In Amos 6:12 this Hebrew word is rendered "hemlock" (RV, "wormwood"). In the symbolical language of the Apocalypse (Rev. 8:10, 11) a star is represented as falling on the waters of the earth, causing the third part of the water to turn wormwood.
christianity.about.com/library/weekly/blT0003800.htm

It is primarily used as a bitter and therefore has the effect of stimulating and invigorating the whole of the digestive process. It is also a strong remedy for the treatment of worm infestations, especially roundworm and pinworm. It may also be used to help the body deal with fever and infections. Its actions include: bitter, carminative, anti-microbial, and anthelmintic.

The star in the Book of Revelation that fell on the earth when the "third angel" blew in his trumpet. Woormwood means bitterness.

Artemisia absinthum MEDICINAL: Wormwood is used for all problems within the digestive system, as well as liver and bladder ailments. It promotes menstruation and will help with menstrual cramps. Do not give to small children, and use only in very small quantities for very short periods of time, as the FDA considers this a poisonous plant. RELIGIOUS: Wormwood is burned to raise your spirits to a higher level, enabling easier divination and clairvoyance. Thrown on the fire at Samhain, it will protect from the spirits that roam that night. GROWING: Wormwood grows mainly in temperate regions of the eastern portion

Heb. la’anah (Apoc., viii, 11), plants of the genus Artemisia, several species of which (A. monosperma, Del., A. herba-alba, Asso., A. judaica, A. annua, A. arborescens) are common in Palestine, notably on tablelands and in deserts. The characteristic bitterness of the Artemisias, coupled with their usual dreariness of habitat, aptly typified for Eastern minds calamity, injustice, and the evil results of sin.
www.newadvent.org/cathen/12149a.htm

In Revelations 8:10/11 of the Holy Bible, WORMWOOD is defined as a "great star" that fell from heaven and made the earth's waters bitter as it burnt the land. Perhaps the word "WORMWOOD" identifies the leftover worm-ridden wooden artifacts from the antediluvian era of Atlantis. If COMET PHAETHON, which destroyed Atlantis, collided into the sun by vaporizing its metallic makeup into space, then, in turn, this action could cause a global fire storm and flood if the metallic particles reacted with the earth's atmosphere - thus destroying all wooden construction projects and associated artifacts.

Wormwood (Artemisia absinthium) Green Ginger. The Romans aptly referred to common wormwood as absinthium from the word absinthial to mean "bitter." After rue, wormwood is recognized as the most bitter herb known. But, its name probably comes from the Anglo-Saxon wermode which translates to "mind preserver." Wormwood was once a traditional stuffing for goose and provides the bitter flavor in vermouth and, until it was banned in the US in 1915, it also flavored absinthe. Absinthe was considered a dangerous beverage which lead to wormwood poisoning. Prior to its ban in France in the same year, many noted artists

Artemisia is a large, diverse genus of plants with about 180 species belonging to the sunflower family (Asteraceae). It comprises hardy herbs and sub-shrubs known for their volatile oils. They grow in temperate climates of the Northern Hemisphere, usually in dry or semi-dry habitats. The fern-like leaves of many species are covered with white hairs.

A Mountain Burning With Fire

I had stumbled across this not to long ago, looking up stuff on google about this very verse. It's a run-thru of how the Great Tribulation starts (their interpretation, of course... I'm not necessarily endorsing that particular website), and what is described is certainly eye-opening. (YMMV)

There is a comet approaching the earth at this time known as 73P. It will be passing inside of Earth's orbit. In 1995, it began to break up and the portions that are breaking off of the main comet are drifting in an orbit that brings them dangerously close to the Earth, though probably not in this pass of the Earth. Rather, they will be threatening the Earth in Aprill/May 2022 if they are big enough.

In the May 2022, the disintegrating comet will pass almost directly between the Earth and Sun. Could this be the Part in Revelation 6 where John said the sun had an appearance like looking through black sackcloth (Burlap by today's standards). A comet broken into millions of pieces passing between the Earth and Sun could create that appearance. Also, the refraction of the Sun's light through all of that ice could cause the moon to appear blood red.

If it is a comet that causes those appearances, then is this that comet?

As for the mountain burning with fire, Wormwood, that appears to be some sort of meteor, asteroid or comet that is big enough to destroy 1/3 of the life in the sea, but not big enough to anhilate all of life on the Earth. That celestial object impacting in the ocean may cause a poisonous rain that poisons much of the worlds fresh water.

In Revelation chapters 6 through 8, John tells of the beginning of the end. It's something to think about.

What do you guys think?


i'm not sure if your still active or lurking...



i use the www.blueletterbible.org... source,


a little different than your quote of Rev 8:10
"...and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp..."


lets dissect the passages a little ->



lamps emit visible light, now if that light energy was accompanied by a Gamma Ray Burst (GRB)...that model would make the 'wormwood' scenario plausable.

because immediately preceeding the 'wormwood' light, we are told that a mountain would fall into the sea (meteor or comet hitting an ocean in modern language) and that physical event would kill 1/3rd of sea life.


and the 'wormwood' event isn't described as anything having mass falling upon the 1/3 of the worlds rivers & fountains - (associate fountains as resevoirs)...



i suspect that a visible radiation (burning a it were a lamp')
accompanied by a GRB is what causes the putrification
of 1/3rd of rivers & fountains on the side of the Earth
doused in the sudden GRB as Earth rotates on its axis.





thats what i think, in answer to the question
