    Sorry I can't copy and paste the link, but the sun is now being very quiet, and astronomers are somewhat concerned. Well should we be, or is this what Jesus meant when He told us we'd see signs in the heavens, or did he mean signs and wonders?

    If anyone can post the link on the latest concerns with our star, the sun, please paste it for me, and I will be grateful.

    Nothing is happening with the sun right now so we should consider that to be a "sign in the heavens"? Sheesh...

    Here's a story regarding the concern:
    In searching for this story, I came across one idiot who wondered if "global warming" was causing the Sun to go inactive. [​IMG]

    Apparently, NASA isn't concerned. Maybe that's a good reason we should be. :laugh:

    The lack of solar activity is related to the cold winter wherein the Great Lakes were about 90% frozen for the first time in a few years.

    Oy vey, trying to link a season of solar quiet with eschatology. Goodness.

    Indeed.

    The Bible:
    Matt 24:29 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken." --Jesus

    ...the sun is now being very quiet, is this what Jesus meant when He told us we'd see signs in the heavens?

    Uh, no. The extreme cold experienced in the mid-west last winter, and the cool summer is due to a stagnant stationary front over the eastern Pacific ocean. This front forces the Pacific air mass that normally moves east over northern California, Oregon, and Washington state to move farther north into the arctic. This incursion into the arctic has forced the polar vortex southward into central Canada and the mid-west of the US. This has brought very cold weather to the mid-west and cooler than normal temperatures this summer. The front has nothing to do with the downturn in solar activity which is now over 3 years old. Post hoc ergo propter hoc fallacy. :)

    And why do you suppose that upper level high -- not a stationary front -- is stagnant? High- and low-pressure systems don't have ability to just sit down and not move. There has to be a reason. And the reason is, the lack of solar activity has slowed down the weather patterns around the world.

    Any eighth grader who's had his/her meteorology section in science class knows that.
