Columbia falls, peace dies
Look to the skies. A spaceship becomes a comet, an omen of death and destruction.
The Columbia space shuttle fell to earth on February 1, 2003. My mother worked as an electronic assembler on shuttle components when Columbia was built. She received a medallion and a commendation for her work signed by astronauts John Young and Bob Crippen. My mother was a midwife to the birth of Columbia. I am here to interpret its death.
The shuttle crew represented three major targets of Islamic extremists: America, Israel and India. John Hogue, editor of the Hogue Prophecy Bulletin, suggested that the bright streaking shuttle was the "comet" that would herald the fall of a third Antichrist and the beginning of a 27-year war, as predicted by Nostradamus.
Records from China and Europe extending back nearly 3,000 years associate comets with major disasters such as plagues, wars, floods and fires. Comets were considered part of the heavenly machinery governing our fates. But since Columbia was a man-made "comet," this omen suggests that humans, not gods, govern their own fates. Or it could mean that the man-made and god-made comets are now interchangeable; the border between the material and spiritual worlds has been breached.
According to babynameworld.com, "Columbia," in Old English, is a girl's name meaning "a dove." The dove represents peace. The prospects for peace died when Columbia died. Also noteworthy is the fact that the major breakup of the shuttle occurred in the skies near the town of Palestine, Texas. Peace, like the shuttle, has fallen apart over the Palestine of the Middle East.
