Rescuers rush to reach dozens trapped on erupting Japan volcano
Rescuers rushed Sunday to help dozens of hikers stranded on an erupting volcano in central Japan with six people believed to be buried under ash and dozens injured.
Columns of thick white steam were rising from the 3,067-metre (10,121-foot) Mount Ontake, which erupted around noon on Saturday, spewing ash, rocks and steam on otherwise a sunny autumn weekend busy with tourists and hikers.
Seven people were unconscious and buried under ash, national broadcaster NHK said.
This story should be a reminder to everyone about how unpredictable a volcano can be. Yet even in a country like Costa Rica, there are hotels virtually across the street from the Arenal volcano, and the locals say, 'oh, it's no problem, it has never erupted on this side!" Of course, the mainstream media has not played up this story that much, certainly not as much as the tsunami/earthquake that hit Japan before, probably because they didn't have cameras in the area, nor could they make their audience more fearful of volcanoes.
I finally figured out that the main objective of the news--any side, whether local or national or international---is not to inform but to make the audience afraid, because then they will keep tuning in and seeing the commercials that pay for their operation.
Instead, when we look into the Bible, whenever a person is confronted with something NEW and STRANGE, like an angel, the message is "FEAR NOT"
I always wonder what's really underneath the earth's surface and wonder if those geologist cutaways are really accurate; the mantles, core, etc. some Now say there are oceans of water below the surface, some say the core is magma, and some sy a big steal mass which accounts for the magnetic field. Some also say that hell is within the center of the earth because it might explain a bottomless pit; no up, no down, etc. The bible alao talks about the angels who sinned being chained in dark caves, a door to hell being opened and "locusts" with a king flying out, Satan being thrown into a lake of fire, etc, etc. Just interesting. I think things are going to get very strange in the end times as things never imagined are unveiled and unleashed.
