As in the days of Noah

Post by Glacier »

Jesus Christ wrote:But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone. “For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah. “For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and they did not understand until the flood came and took them all away; so will the coming of the Son of Man be. “Then there will be two men in the field; one will be taken and one will be left.“Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken and one will be left.


Speaking of the days of Noah, has one else noticed how many Noahs are running around these days? The following graph reveals that the popularity of the name Noah has gone up 1000% in just the past 20 years. Maybe Harold Camping or ThinkTank can tell us what it means.

the name has become so popular - even people's last name is noah

My theory is that preachers and pastors in churches all over the world are claiming 'the end is near'
and 'the rapture is near' so people subconsciously are thinking only a few will be saved in the rapture - so
they name their kid Noah.

But it could just be - people tend to choose names that are popular at the time.

In addition to Noahs, there are tons of Jacobs, Isaacs, Lukes, Calebs and so on. "Old" names are making a comeback for both genders. That, and names starting with "K"!
A couple of decades ago it was Michaels, Jonathans, Matthews, Davids and Daniels from the biblical names.
In other words, it doesn't mean a thing but makes a nice graph.

Working up north some years back I met a nurse named "Dorcas", another biblical name. Bet no one made fun of her in school.
I just want some credible articles to back up my conspiracy theory but I can't find any. Must be censorship.

I went to high school with a very gorgeous girl named Dorcas, no one made fun of her then (not sure how she was treated in elementary school before her boobs came in).
The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.
