Electronic Armageddon?

Somewhat as a follow-up to the article from a few days ago, Solar problems are coming. NASA and other scientists raise concerns., a reader forwarded me the following:

Electronic Armageddon: How An EMP Bomb Would Be A Deathblow To Life As We Know It

Huffington Post |  Bianca Bosker First Posted: 06-17-10

Earlier this month, NASA warned that as the Sun wakes up from its “deep slumber,” a massive solar storm could wreak havoc on our electronics, from satellites to the electrical grid…National Geographic explorers the risk and consequences of the “electronic Armageddon” that could be caused by an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) bomb.

An EMP bomb, National Geographic explains, is “a bomb that’s designed to go above the atmosphere and release huge amounts of energy,” some of which in the form of gamma rays. Such a weapon would cripple electronics, but not kill people.

“In less than a billionth of a second, the electrical intensity on Earth’s surface would become so hot that microchips would fry, power lines would overload and the electric grid would collapse,” says National Geographic, describing . “Everything with microelectronics in it would stop: your car, your computer, the subway. There would be no electricity.”


Now, while what the Bible describes as associated with “Armageddon” is military in a more conventional sense (Revelation 16:13-16), this does not mean that other problems will not also happen.

Jesus specifically warned about “troubles” (Mark 13:8) that happen PRIOR to the Great Tribulation and the time of “Armageddon”.  Electronic problems and/or electronic warfare would seem to qualify as “troubles”.

As my book 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect warns, it is possible that the USA and others could be severely affected by some event that could knock out computers and electricity like solar storms.  It also may be that an EMP bomb would hit the USA at or near the start of the Great Tribulation.  And as the above article indicates, it is not all that far-fetched.

End of Mayan Calendar 2012–Might 2012 Mean Something?There is a Mayan calendar prediction for change in 2012. 2012 changes were also centuries ago predicted by the Hopi Native Americans. Do Mayan/Hindu/Hopi/Buddhist/New Age/Nostradamus prophecies have any value here? Why might Satan have inspired this date? Does the Dresden codex show destruction of the earth by flood? Can the great tribulation start before 2012?
