Revelation: End of The World

I just thought of an end of the world nightmare scenario. What if bacteria developed the ability to metabolize salt? The bacteria reproduction rate would grow so fast that the oceans would become devoid of salt. The oceans would become freshwater, killing all the species, such as saltwater fish, clams, crabs, and lobster that have evolved to live in saltwater. This would cause a mass extinction of epic proportions.

This is very similar to an occurrence foretold in the New Testament:
New International Version
The second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it turned into blood like that of a dead person, and every living thing in the sea died. - Revelation 16:3

Comments for Trump Supporters: Media and Gerrymandering

  1. The unfavorable portrayal of Trump in the media:
President Trump has selective amnesia, and even if his lies are only accidental, and forgotten by him, they are still fodder for news publications looking to cover their bottom line. Search and perhaps you will find that there is media available that will give you what you like by putting President Trump in a positive way. Most media comes from businesses, such that most media sources only sell what can make them the most money. Thus, even if one tries to expose the media as a creator of unfair attacks, then it feeds media profits/popularity. If the media only paints Trump as bad, if you consume it, you feed its popularity, because bad attention can still create profitable infamy, as is the case with the President lately.

  1. The consequence of gerrymandering:
What we are observing is a blowback from gerrymandering. The President didn't even come close to winning the popular vote. People are angry, and rightly so. The majority wants representative government, but they did not get their way, such that popular opinion has created a void for media to present the President as an unfavorable man. In addition, because I did not vote for him, I am a part of the angry majority that lost the election.
