First of all, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) isn't going to make anything that the Universe itself doesn't make. The idea that the LHC will
somehow cause the end of the world is nothing more than fear of technology. While I might question whether LHC is likely to yield information that
will justify the expense, it isn't going to destroy the planet or force the Universe into a different metastable state that will cause space to
collapse. It's a puny little toy compared even to our own Sun, not to mention the galaxies, pulsars, black holes and other stuff out there that are
many orders of magnitude more powerful.
was the god of medicine, not death and pestilence. The god of death was
(it's where we get the word "euthanasia", literally a "good death").
As far as I can tell, "Apollyon" is a Greek attempt to represent the Hebrew word "Abaddon". The similarity to "Apollo" may have confused a
scribe. AFAIK, there is no connection between Apollyon and Apollo.
I think you have to take the Book of Revelation with a huge grain of salt. It appears to be the ravings of someone who is either mentally ill or
under the influence of a mind-altering substance. Even if it's 100% solid prophecy, it's couched in metaphorical language and, in most cases, ought
not be taken literally. There are similarities to the visions of Daniel and Ezekiel - which also need to be considered in a metaphorical sense.
The problem with using Nostradamus's prophecies is that what he wrote is so vague as to be almost meaningless. When or how is Saturn going to turn
from gold to iron? What is Saturn? Is it the planet, or does it refer to the astrological Saturn, known as the Great Malific, the one whose job it
is to oppose people in their lives (which is what Satan does)? Is Satan going to change from gold to iron? What does that mean?
"Raypoz" wouldn't be "positive rays". The reason for this is Nostradamus spoke medieval French, which is no more comprehensible than the English
of the King James Bible. He certainly wasn't speaking English. It is unreasonable to conclude that for some reason, Nostradamus dropped into
English for a while as he wrote his quatrains. To unravel "raypoz", I would suggest looking into the French language to see whether there is
something there that might serve.
Anyway, the LHC isn't powerful enough to destroy the earth. It's whacking some heavy ions into each other, hoping to find the Higgs boson, among
other things. If they find it, they'll build a bigger collider for something even more massive. All very interesting, but basically not containing
nearly enough energy to do us any harm. Oh, it might cause radiation damage to people nearby if they're not adequately shielded, but as far as
destroying the world, it isn't going to happen. The nice thing about making such a claim is, if I"m wrong, no one's going to be around to tell me
"Told you so!". But I digress.
Ezekiel, Daniel, Revelation, Nostradamus, and many other visions or prophecies are all so vague and incoherent that they could mean almost anything.
Locusts with scorpion stings, wearing armor and having the face of men? Have you ever seen any such thing? No. It's a poetic image, not a literal
one. You can always stretch current, known objects to fit the description, if you're not too fussy about the details. Maybe those scorpions refer
to men wearing exoskeletons or body armor, their "sting" being the weapons they have. OK, sure, they've got faces of men and armor and a sting of
sorts. But of course, they're njot locusts, they're men wearing armor. Or maybe its the unmanned drones we use in Afghanistan and elsewhere,
drones that can release bombs or missiles - a "sting". This time they fly like locusts, maybe even make a sound similar to what Revelation
describes. But armor? Faces of men? Not so much. How about mutant locusts that have thicker armor, have developed a venomous sting, and somehow
manage to look like people? OK,I might go with that, but so far no one's ever seen such a critter.
