    Some people have seen the article on CNN.com, other's haven't. Here, if you haven't.

    Is it possible that this could be the "wormwood" asteroid which is suppossed to his the oceans predicted in Revelations?

    Again it's just a thought, and I'd like yours as well.
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    i suppose... ive been thinking that the "wormwood" would be an asteroid from the time i first saw it in the bible... so this seems kinda... right to me. but i think the end is much closer than 800 years away... so i tend to think this is not it. but you never know

    Possibly. Could be the wormwood or the mountain cast into the sea.
    And it could come sooner.
    Or it could miss entirely like that one in 1987 did.

    Hi Nick, yes I have read about this. I have also learned (not to frighten anyone) that there is a "blind spot" in the universe where scientists cannot fortell what may be coming on the earth. So, while that asteroid has been detected, there are others that will not. CNN/space news or NASA are reliable resources.
    Upon reading Revelation, I have often associated "wormwood" as being a nuclear result.

    Please note the following sentence taken from the article:

    "But Jon Giorgini, leader of a NASA team that tracked the asteroid, said that the odds of a collision are about 300 to one."

    Based on that, it is rather unlikely that the asteroid is "wormwood". Now if you want to speculate wildly about the end of the world, it is much more fun to ponder on the claim that Chernobyl is Russian for "wormwood", though a search in an English-Russian dictionary reveals that the Russian for "wormwood" is "POIYN'PO'KAIA". If I got that wrong, then blame my lack of Russian, and the fact that I had to convert from the Cyrillic to the Roman alphabet.
