One thing I learned as a historian, not much has changed in 6,000 years.<quoted text>That's pretty good... your powers still need a little improvement though.
Actually, there has been a dramatic increase of all these things... not to mention more volatile weather that weather forecasters consistently speak about (they say due to global warming of course). But Jesus was correct when He previously said before his death & resurrection:
Jesus: "Today it will be stormy, for the sky is red and overcast.' You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times."
One thing I learned as an anthropologist, not much has changed in a lot longer than 6,000 years.
The weather currently is pretty decent considering the past. Not quite to the optimum circa 1000 AD nor the devastation of the 1350-1890 ice age that we still have yet to recover from (AKA Global Warming AKA paranoia)
