type of bitterness, affliction, remorse, punitive suffering. In Amos 6:12 this Hebrew word is rendered "hemlock" (RV, "wormwood"). In the

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
