I am about halfway through Worlds in Collision.
Thus far the author has not lost me and I've noticed some really interesting things which tie into my own research on the subject of the global history of mankind.
I would like to point to some of the seeming coincidences. In the interest of brevity and ease of review, I'm trying to keep this short.
Coincidence #1 - The Deucalion Flood - Noah was told in a dream by "angels" to build an ark.
Coincidence #2 - The Exodous - Moses seemed always to be in just the right place at exactly the right time.
Coincidence #3 - Destruction of Jerico - Again.......exactly the right place at exactly the right time.
Coincidence #4 - Destruction of Sodom and Gommorah - Again........Lot and family guided by angels
Coincidence #5 - The arrival of Cortez in MesoAmerica - Perfect timing for alignment with native prophesy
And on and on and on..........
Does anyone else see the statistical improbability that all of these "Coincidences" are all just that - coincidences?
Given that these events (global disasters) occur on a cyclical basis as recognized by many peoples in history, does it not make sense that (perhaps) we are being watched by technologically superior beings who dress-up as "angels" or "messengers" and deliver periodic cues to select individuals in order to serve their own ends?
Perhaps one could think of the arrival of Cortez as a willful insertion. That his presence was somehow guided/aided toward the the destruction of the Aztecs by facilitating his arrival to the continent at just the perfect time in order to exploit the greatest possible chance of "success".
The same could be said of the Hebrews and their Exodous from Egypt - pretty much the whole damn story relies upon a system of near perfect timing (being in exactly the right place at precisely the correct moment).
Just taking note and wondering.........
