The Bees are Dying
I just comprehended from the news yesterday that the bees are dying and that this could mean the end of the human race. I read an article the other day about the honeybees disappearing and dying off but I did not fully register it until yesterday why all of the recent honeybee articles and blog entries. Apparently honeybees are the most important insect to the human food chain. They pollinate %80 of the fruits, vegetables and nuts that we eat and are responsible for a third of the food we eat. No bees, no fruits and vegetables, no cattle, no life. Where have all the flowers gone? Scientists are calling this disappearing, vanishing bee colony syndrome Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD). CCD has affected half of the bee population of the United States and parts of Europe. This is the first national affliction and scientists are attributing this to cell phone usage and other factors such as mites, pesticides, genetically modified food and global warming. Bees fly away from their hives and are unable to navigate their way back to their hives due to the interference of radiation from mobile phones and other high tech gadgets that interfere with a bees navigation system. This year hundreds of beekeepers opened their beehives to find empty boxes. Albert Einstein once said "If the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe, then man would only have four years left to live." Are the bees the canary in the coal mine? Is this written in prophecy somewhere? Are the Mayans correct, is 2012 near? Is the earth on fire? Is this the beginning of the end? Will it be bread and water from hereafter? Will everyone in the world give up their cell phones in order to avoid a worldwide famine or will scientists just invent more cloned, fake food? Here is a quote I saw on another website in regards to the bees:
Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, "A quart of wheat for a day's wages, and three quarts of barley for a day's wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!"
This passages describe “a time of famine in the last days when life will be reduced to the barest necessities.” Grape and olive oil production will only be minimally impacted by Colony Collapse Disorder while much of the fruit, vegetable and nut production will be severely reduced resulting in famine. These end time biblical prophecies are coming to pass within our own lifetimes. If you believe. Have a great day.
