I think the bible ) the older part) is really very old and is a lot of stories about things that happened a long time ago put together with a lot of
I mean, you know, there has been a city or two been destroyed by fire from the heavens, and you have been complaining ( as a religious man) about
the decadent way of living of the inhabitants of that city,
The next step then is that you warn people every time they misbehave about the terrible things that can happen if you anger God. It's a prediction
based on things that have happened because of reasons you don't understand. In this case a punishment God gave, but in reality was something else.
The three days of darkness etc. at the end of times. According to legend and the Sumerian tablets it has happened at some time. It must have been
terrible and most people would have died.
It must have looked like the end of all times.
Hundreds maybe thousands of years parents must have told their children about it.
After a while it became something that for sure would happen again, and this time it really would be the end of times.
And maybe it will, maybe it is some kind of cycle.
But I do not think the prophets could have foretold such things. I think they were seers who were very religious.
They constantly warned people to live the way God wants them to live, because if not...
I do think there are people who have glimpses of the future. I have them myself and they have come true.
But they are just that :glimpses.
Ok this is a bit rambling. It is very difficult to put my thoughts about this on paper.
