Re: Theos-World Moe and the volcano

I wonder, Steve, if the fixation the ancient Israelites had with fire, be
it volcanic or otherwise, then finds its way into Christian apocalyptic
writings and into the mindset of modern Christian fundimentalists?

The end of the world by fire, often now explained as a revelatory look to
a future nuclear event, my more aptly be a look back to this possible
volcanic destruction which cover much of that tribes known world and
could easily translation into future world annihilation as they saw it.

It could also give more meaning to the idea of the "wicked" being cast
into a "lake of fire and brimstone". Maybe even taken from some of the
bolder souls who had looked at the magma from a perch high atop a
volcanos rim. 

Or perhaps even ritual sacrifice. After all ,he Caananitish god Molech
was a fire god., hollowed out with a burning furnace into which infants
were cast. Was the original Molech the volcano itself? Southsea islanders
did such. 

Interesting speculations at least! It could explain much.
