|During the 40’s and 50’s, the United States carried out
106 atmospheric nuclear tests in the Nevada desert. It was not until
the 90’s Washington offered a formal apology and compensation was payed
out to the large number of victims of fallout-related cancer.
Nevada is also known as the Sagebrush State. Sagebrush is a close relative of wormwood, the plant mentioned in the Bible prophecies about "the end of days".
The third angel sounded, and a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of waters. The name of the star is called Wormwood; and a third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the waters, because they were made bitter. Revelation 8:10-11
Christians refered to this Biblical phrase after the Chernobyl disaster. Chernobyl means mugwort in Ukrainian, and mugwort belongs to the wormwood genus as well.
Based on a literal reading of the Bible there are hence two places and events which may fit in with the prophecy: An accident at a reactor in Chernobyl, and a place which for a long time were subject to well-aware damage, justified to secure a country’s position in the nuclear arms race.
