Revelation 16:18-21 KJV
18 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.
19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.
20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.
21 And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.
I usually stay away from Revelation because it’s so idiotic across the board. It’s hard to pick out what to even go after. This little passage perfectly illustrates it perfectly.
First off they have all the islands fleeing away. The earthquake, OK not exactly out on a limb that there are earthquakes. But it says that Babylon is there. Babylon has been in ruins for thousands of years.
There’s that whole bit about the mountains not being found. That’s a pretty neat trick. I mean David Copperfield did this thing where he supposedly made the Grand Canyon disappear. It was cleaver, but not at all impressive. Apparently God is going to try the same crap.
Then it says there is hail the weight of a “talent.” I looked that up. It is a bit over 75 pounds. That’s not hail anymore and it’s not even close to reasonable. I looked up the record too. The wost hail storm killed 92 people. But the stones were about 2 pounds. The thing is, hail forms by getting blown back into the clouds over and over. There’s an upper limit to how big they can get and 75 pounds is absurd. Hail that big would crush any house or car. It would leave small craters. To think an entire storm would send nothing but that is crazy.
