“We’re in a race against time, with population growth outstripping our ability to feed ourselves: If present trends continue, expect at least 100 million people—per year—to starve to death within the next two decades. Within 15 years, the levels of nitrogen buildup in the atmosphere will filter out half the sunlight presently reaching Earth. Decaying organic pollutants will suck up the oxygen in America’s rivers, killing freshwater fish. . . . Millions of city dwellers can expect to die in smog disasters. If present trends continue, in the next quarter-century average temperatures will plunge to about twice what it takes to put us into an ‘ice age.’”
These prophecies were the headlines in the 1970’s. None of the doomsday prophecies happened but that has not stopped today’s seers from prophesying more end-time scenarios. Perhaps we should quit listening to the prophets who speak in the name of the settled science. –Jim L. Wilson and Rodger Russell.

Deuteronomy 18:20 (HCSB) “But the prophet who dares to speak a message in My name that I have not commanded him to speak, or who speaks in the name of other gods—that prophet must die.’”
