Lot of political stuff on...and monster movies...and back to Carol Burnett biography!
And I wondered about the meteor crater in Arizona...brb...fifty thousand years ago...near Winslow...and I've stood on the corner...and been to the Crater...I'll add it to my list of Seven Wonders of the Natural World..
The curio of the Crater...aside from it's size and just look...is that it took so long to accept it as a meteor crater...people were reluctant to think such a thing could happen on Earth...which is understandable...
Now I've got the online music going..and the TV..and trying to think this Ages of Man through!...geeah!
brb...quote from Daniel...
Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was terrible.
This image's head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass,
His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.
Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.
Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.
This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king.
It's one of those side by sides which likely has no relation at all...but it's a wonder...the statue in Daniel is made of Gold, Silver, Brass, Iron, and Clay...and...brb...
Well...I'm not alone!...wikipedia sees the same side by side!....
In the Old Testament Book of Daniel, Nebuchadnezzar has a dream of a statue made of the four metals which is interpreted by Daniel. Whether this story derives from a common literary tradition with that of the classical accounts is uncertain, but it utilizes the same four metals to describe changing periods of history. It also describes the changing character of mankind during the four ages.
here's wiki's site...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ages_of_Man
It mentions that book "Hamlets Mill"...which I may have mentioned a ways back...a book I only heard about in school...and have read through once...I'll have to get it now!!...for the blog here!...
Oh...but the thought leaps in here....was the stone that struck the statue in Daniel a meteor!!??
