Turmoil has always been on the face of the earth. This age is no more turmoily than any other age. Every century for the last 2000 years, one "prophet" or another as said the same thing you did. You have shown here you are a biblical literalist. I was a literalist in my time, I recognize you, and feel compassion toward your angst. However, your words hold no weight with me. regar
