Did King Solomon predict this week’s polar vortex 3000 years ago?
Today’s news in Chicago Tribune of the whys that a record cold temperature will be broken brought about by the polar vortex. Some believe that there is nothing new about polar vortex or the possibility of oceans flooding the shores as a result of global warming.
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate King Solomon’s ancient observations writings for you to decide if there will be more records broken in this century?
King Solomon, Ecclesiastes Chapter One Excerpts
The wind blows to the south
and turns to the north;
round and round it goes,
ever returning on its course.
7 All streams flow into the sea,
yet the sea is never full.
To the place the streams come from,
there they return again.
8 All things are wearisome,
more than one can say.
The eye never has enough of seeing,
nor the ear its fill of hearing.
9 What has been will be again,
what has been done will be done again;
there is nothing new under the sun.
What’s My Point?
Curious to what a polar vortex is, I googled and read an Accuweather Explanation that explained how polar vortex is a result of wind. Then I read some comments that dispute global warming and rising ocean tides which reminded me of some recent posts about the previous five planet extinctions that occurred, perhaps because of warming or volcanoes or whatever.
The King Solomon verse that nothing is new under the sun perhaps has some implications. Interpretations of under r the sun being what results from the actions of humans and animals. Above the sun is Gods Spiritual territory according to Bible.
The polar vortex is an effect of the winds blowing under the sun as King Solomon verses state. In other words, the area we humans and animals inhabit.
My point is that when a temperature becomes a record of either heat melting glaciers or cold forming glaciers, indicates something is changing out of the normal.
And since “nothing is new under the sun,” including the fact that there have been five previous extinctions which resulted in mass extinctions of living matter, perhaps the verse can also be interpreted that there may be a sixth mass extinction in the works?
In My Opinion
I am not a trained weather meteorologist. My opinion is restricted only to wonder about a sixth Extinction being a possibility as a result of human-made pollution rather than volcanoes.
In any case, the winds observed 3000 years ago affected the temperature in ancient Israel which also was recorded to have lions roaming about which somehow changed over time, because of both man and weather.
Something to discern perhaps?
Read in the Source Links below the Accweather report and the comments. Then compare to my previous posts listed.
What does “nothing new under the sun” mean when weather records are broken to you?
Was King Solomon’s verses a proverbial forecast of the possibility of a future Sixth Extinction?
Do you believe that only God knows the future, or perhaps the weather breaking records is God’s way of giving us a hint of warning?
Do you know the Boy Scout Motto is “Be Prepared?”
