Sunday School Lesson

And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
KJV Genesis 1:28
And with our clever hands we built many machines and we scraped the earth clean of all life, drove it away or killed it outright.

When they scrapped this section of Orlando near Millennia Elementary clean I saw the remnants of the woods burn for days on the horizon.

Construction Zone #1

Construction Zone #3

And after we scraped the earth clean, we covered it back over with asphalt and concrete and "man's works", and planted little marigolds about as if that would somehow make up for all the violence that went on before.

Marigolds

They talk about an apocalypse as if it will be a predictable singular event, visible to everyone. We've been living the apocalypse for centuries.
Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not...
KJV Jeremiah 5:21
