Although birds falling from the sky is not a Biblical prophecy of the end times, it certainly does feel ominous and apocalyptic.

Dead Birds in Louisiana

Dead Birds in Louisiana

An important thing to remember is that, while we may not know the reason for the sudden die offs of large numbers of birds–there IS a reason.  I also suspect that certain people may be starting to get nervous, wondering whether their actions are to blame.

Whether or not any of these things is to blame, I want to propose a few things that are potential hazards to the creatures we share the planet with. I am not attempting to provide an official explanation, or new conspiracy theory.  I am just throwing out my opinion, based on what I have heard and what I know.

(Disclaimer:  this is not a well-researched post I am making.  I am relating, from brief notes, what I have learned from recent news stories.  The rest, where no links are given, is based on what I remember from my previous study of Biology.)

First, let me summarize what I know about recent bird die-offs:

Here are some things these type of birds have in common:

  • They congregate in large flocks
  • They tend to migrate in winter
  • They are opportunistic feeders
  • Insects make up a large part of their diet in summer, but in winter they primarily eat grains and weed seeds
  • They settle on agricultural fields, and clean up what is left after the harvest
  • Birds eat more when it is colder–the oils in seeds help to fuel their metabolism, keeping them warm

An article about the Turtle Doves, that died in Italy, may give a further clue as to the cause:

”  . . . Nadia Caselli of the bird association said they appear to have overeaten sunflower seeds, which damage their livers and kidneys. The seeds are mostly waste from a nearby oil factory.”

Here are my thoughts:

  • There are chemicals that concentrate in oils–meaning that, of all the parts of the plant, the seeds (or more specifically, the oil in the seeds) will have the highest concentration of the contaminant.
  • Some of these chemicals are absorbed into the plant after it is sprayed, others are taken up from the soil and water, by the roots.
  • So, agricultural chemicals could be to blame.
  • Our global elite, in their attempts to create ever more power and wealth for themselves, have opened a Pandora’s box of new agricultural innovations–genetically modified plants are one of them.  (Also, genetically modified plants, especially those that are wind-pollinated, have escaped from cultivation and corrupted the DNA of non-modified plants of the same species living nearby. )
  • I am no longer up-to-date on what is happening in the world of GMOs (genetically modified organisms).  What I DO know is that the purpose of some genetic modification is to enable the plants to withstand the effects of herbicides, so that the field can be sprayed to kill weeds without harming the crop.  Although the crop plant may not be harmed, what chemicals are concentrating in its tissues, in the soil, and in the insects and animals that are exposed to the herbicides (either directly, or by eating the plant)?
  • Another type of genetic modification is to make the plant toxic to insects that eat that particular plant.  One particular bacteria, called ‘bt’, is effective in killing caterpillars and the larvae of flies and mosquitos.  By incorporating a ‘bt gene’ into a plant’s DNA, each cell of the plant then produces the same toxin that bt bacteria produce, and makes it deadly to its insect pests.  (I have heard, but can’t verify, that many of us now have that toxin in our gut flora–that the gene has actually been incorporated into the bacteria in our digestive tract!   [presumably from eating plant material that included the bt gene–or maybe, from eating yogurt, if the bacteria that culture yogurt have incorporated the bt gene from the milk from cows that have eaten plant material that contained it . . . ])
  • Thus, the death of these birds may be a result of having introduced genetically modified organisms into the environment.

My objective is to throw out some ideas.  I can only hope that someone, somewhere, is looking into these possibilities.  I think that looking at the source of the seed these birds were eating would tell a lot.

Did these birds eat seeds from genetically modified plants?  Were the seeds they ate, from test fields?  Were the seeds contaminated with some kind of agricultural chemicals?  If so, did anyone know that these seeds might have a potentially lethal effect on wildlife, or people?  Did material from these plants enter into the human food supply too?

Follow the seeds.  What ties these locations, and their seeds together?  Is this the ‘smoking gun’?  If this is the cause, will the truth ever see the light of day?

If GMOs are involved, you can be sure that a ‘plausible explanation’ will soon come forth.  The agricultural companies that are in the business of creating genetically modified organisms are very wealthy, very powerful, and very well connected.  If they are to blame, you can bet they are scrambling to ‘put a lid on’ this.

However, if this is what has happened, and if it is God’s time to reveal more information about the corruption of the elite, the truth will out.

Setting The Stage

Another line of  thinking that I encountered, is that  the death of the Arkansas birds–and fish–could be tied in with HAARP technology or military tests.  Although I know nothing about the blog, here is a link for those of you who would like to hear what that writer has to say.

Another possibility I can think of is a species-specific attack using a nanoweapon. In such a case, it could be a warning from another country (such as China) or our own military testing and refining new nanoweaponry.

And, last but not least, my first thought was that this may somehow tie in with the recent earthquakes in Guy, Arkansas and/or the Gulf Oil Spill.

A couple of weeks ago, I had read a post about Sodom and Gomorrah.  (Here is a link to some fascinating information regarding what is most likely the actual location of Sodom and Gomorrah!)

Genesis 14:10 says that there were tar pits in the Valley of Siddim (now the Dead Sea). Out of curiosity, I did some research as to what kind of geology one would find that includes tar pits, sulfur, and salt.  I learned that these elements are found in areas where petroleum is also found. If I understood correctly, the geology of such places allows for mud, oil, or sulfur-spewing volcanoes to come up overnight.

Interestingly, there are three places in the US that seemed similar to the Valley of Siddim:

  1. A small petroleum seep at the Great Salt Lake in Utah
  2. The region of (underground) salt dome deposits that are located in Texas, Louisiana, and Arkansas
  3. The San Joaquin Valley of California, where there are several well known tar pits

It may be that nothing like the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah will ever happen in these places . . . but strange things ARE happening in Arkansas and Louisiana.

We have already had two major disasters in that region: Hurricane Katrina and the Gulf Oil Spill.  Are we seeing the prelude to another disaster?  Is it possible that the birds and fish were poisoned or injured by venting of toxic gases along a fault line?  Is an earthquake or some sort of eruption imminent?

Or might it tie in with the oil spill?  Is it possible that some of the dispersant used after the oil spill has made its way further inland, through waterways or fault lines?  Or that, last summer, rain contaminated by toxic vapors may have come down on fields in the area, tainting the soil and accumulating in the plants’ seeds, making them toxic?

Whatever IS behind the birds that fell from the sky, a lot of people are watching and asking:  “What’s next?”

Update 1/26/11:

I have heard that some people heard ‘sonic booms’ or a sound like thunder around the same time as the birds died, that night in Beebe, Arkansas.  (Beebe is not far from Guy, Arkansas where numerous small earthquakes have been felt recently).

A number of people in Indiana reported hearing the same thing,  near Indianapolis the day before the birds in Beebe died. The shaking only lasted about 10 seconds.  They were told it was a 3.8 magnitude earthquake (3 miles deep), but some still question why it sounded and felt like an explosion, rather than like a typical earthquake.

Apparently, one guy in Indiana (and his mother in law) heard 3 loud booms at the same time that his friend, Anton, in NC heard the same thing.  I believe this took place on 1/1/11.  He is still trying to find out whether anyone else between Indiana and North Carolina heard the same thing at that time.

So, here is another thought–again, having to do with fault lines and methane releases:  perhaps methane is making its way through the New Madrid fault line and causing underground explosions . . .

Here is a brief description of what a natural gas explosion felt like (see comment #9).

Related to the New Madrid faultline–here is a link to a broadcast yesterday, that talks about the preparations that FEMA is making, for a major disaster related to a quake on the New Madrid fault line within the next three years (you can skip to a little past the half way point).

Whether or not there are underground explosions happening–it may be news to many people that there IS a type of earthquake that is expressed as a loud boom or thundering.   Something is definitely happening along the New Madrid fault line already.
