    Very interesting article. To stop nd think how close we came to having anything electrical go off grid, for maybe years, is a sobering thought. And so are these Scriptures, speak about the end of days, and what to look for! Let's begin with Acts 2:18-20 -"EVEN ON MY BONDSLAVES, BOTH MEN AND WOMEN, I WILL IN THOSE DAYS POUR FORTH OF MY SPIRIT And they shall prophesy. 'AND I WILL GRANT WONDERS IN THE SKY ABOVE AND SIGNS ON THE EARTH BELOW, BLOOD, AND FIRE, AND VAPOR OF SMOKE. 'THE SUN WILL BE TURNED INTO DARKNESS AND THE MOON INTO BLOOD, BEFORE THE GREAT AND GLORIOUS DAY OF THE LORD SHALL COME.…"


    Isaiah 13:10 - The stars of heaven and their constellations will not show their light. The rising sun will be darkened and the moon will not give its light.

    Isaiah 34:4 - All the stars in the sky will be dissolved and the heavens rolled up like a scroll; all the starry host will fall like withered leaves from the vine, like shriveled figs from the fig tree.

    Isaiah 50:3 - I clothe the heavens with darkness and make sackcloth its covering.

    Ezekiel 32:7 - When I snuff you out, I will cover the heavens and darken their stars; I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon will not give its light.

    Joel 2:10 - Before them the earth shakes, the heavens tremble, the sun and moon are darkened, and the stars no longer shine.

    Joel 2:31 - The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD.

    Joel 3:15 - The sun and moon will be darkened, and the stars no longer shine.

    Matthew 11:21 - "Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the miracles that were performed in you had been performed in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes.

    Matthew 24:7 - Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places.

    Matthew 24:29 - "Immediately after the distress of those days "'the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from the sky, and the heavenly bodies will be shaken.'

    Mark 13:24 - [I"But in those days, following that distress, "'the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light;[/I]

    Revelation 8:5 - Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and hurled it on the earth; and there came peals of thunder, rumblings, flashes of lightning and an earthquake.

    Revelation 8:12 - The fourth angel sounded his trumpet, and a third of the sun was struck, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them turned dark. A third of the day was without light, and also a third of the night.

    Revelation 11:13
    At that very hour there was a severe earthquake and a tenth of the city collapsed. Seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake, and the survivors were terrified and gave glory to the God of heaven.

    Revelation 16:8 - The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and the sun was allowed to scorch people with fire.

    Revelation 16:18 - Then there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder and a severe earthquake. No earthquake like it has ever occurred since mankind has been on earth, so tremendous was the quake.

    Very interesting event. Just a small shift in the direction and there go the cell phones. It would be interesting watching young folk go nuts not being able to text message. Wonder how many auto accidents would have been prevented that day?

    And if it was a long term effect the Great Depression would look like child's play. Think about it if no airplanes could fly, no electric driven trains move, no gas produced ... remember no electricity. I believe things would turn nasty quickly.

    This is why I drive a 1987 Ford. No computer chips, micro-processors or anything. Nowadays, you can't buy a coffee maker without a micro-processor. If an EMP will wipe out cell phones, it will certainly wipe out the communications & alarm systems in a car, and if the engine is computer-controlled, it won't work.

    And it's not entirely science fiction. The biggest solar storm recorded was in 1859, and it set telegraph papers on fire.

    On the last "Real Time With Bill Maher", Dr. Neil de Grasse Tyson explained how the media overhyped this normal event. Nothing to see. Move along. :)

    For ONCE I agree with you. But then again you still think it's Bush's fault.
