The sky is falling. The sky is falling. It hit me on the head.
Remember those words from the Henny Penny fable or from Chicken Little? The words may have been prophetic, because in the news this week, reporters on news stations everywhere are talking about the birds that fell out of the sky in Arkansas and Louisiana. References to Alfred Hitchcock's movie, The Birds, make people wonder about what it all means – estimates of the number of birds that fell on New Year's Eve range from 1,000 to an astounding 5,000.
The day before New Year's Eve somewhere between 80,000 to 100,000 fish washed up on the shores of the Arkansas River as well.
Since those stories ran, new information has surfaced about dead birds falling out of the sky or fish washing up on shores in Kentucky, Maryland, Sweden, Brazil, and New Zealand.
Do these occurrences indicate that the world is coming to an end? Can any other possible explanation exist? According to News@mwza.com, an ornithologist for the Livestock Poultry Commission stated that the birds showed signs of physical trauma. But from what?
The commissioner speculated that their deaths were likely due to high-altitude hail or lightening. As far as the fish dying is concerned, officials (according to the same web site) believe the fish were diseased.
Coincidence or signs of the end?
People often cite references to strange occurrences in the sky as being an indication that the world is coming to an end. Are we experiencing the beginning phases of an apocalypse?
If birds fall out of the sky by the thousands and fish wash up on shore by the thousands, should we be concerned?
I address my feelings about the end of the world in a previous article: December 21, 2012 – The End of the World As We Know It – Or Is It?
The bottom line is this: If the world ends, does it mean the Earth will cease to exist or does it mean that the world as we know it will end? What if chemical and biological warfare has already begun, and the birds are our first indication that something has gone horribly wrong?
What if war destroys our electrical grid and we lose all of our electricity? We may have to return to a time when we had to rely on wood to heat our homes and feed our families. We may have to use wash tubs to clean our clothes. And we may have to use horse and carriages to get around.
Yes our world would end, but it wouldn't be over.
