A third of the waters made bitter?

Might be typical. I remeber a massive alewive kill washing up on the east shores of Lake Michigan - not sure what the cause was back in the 60's, but don't remember a huge alarm over the event.

Not that we eat blackbirds (yet) but I'm wondering if *they* are trying to kill our food supply.

Maybe these are preliminary tests on wildlife to be later used on humans.

Anything s possible nowadays.

....or maybe the blackbirds were killed by a lightning strike.

But that wouldn’t be nearly so much fun, would it?

Rotting fish would make the waters more tangy, with all the decomposed protein / uric acid...

First thought that came to me, but Rev 8 isn't exactly ambiguous:

“6 Then the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared to sound them.

7 The first angel sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was hurled down on the earth. A third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up.

8 The second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a huge mountain, all ablaze, was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea turned into blood,

9 a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.”

Haven't seen hail and fire mixed with blood, a third of the earth burned up, a third of the trees burned up, all the green grass burned up, or a third of the sea turned into blood. So I'd have to say nope, this is just some freaky environmental thing. Unless, of course, there is a mistranslation. And didn't a good chunk of Israel just go up in smoke?

I also remember that. My parents used to take us kids to a rental cottage on Lake Huron back then, for summer vacation. (Back in those olden days, it was something like $50/week, and they were very nice little cottages, maybe 100 yards from shore). And I remember one summer, the alewives piled up on shore like cordwood. It stunk to high heaven.

IIRC the thought was that they were overpopulated, and had simply run out of food, so they died.

Not many years after that, the Coho and Chinook salmon were introduced, which produced a great sport fishery for the Great Lakes.

But then in the 90s (?) there was the massive die-off of the salmon population, because they ran out of alewives to eat.

#7 Compare the Earth of that day to The Earth today. We've screwed up about a third of the earth?

#8 How much been spilled in wars and crime since the Earth of that day in the last 50 years?

#9 How many Ships have sunk in the last 50 years due to war?

IMHO, the animal kill offs will be widely politicized very soon.

In Brazil, it may be from a red tide, and no connection to the bird and fish kill up in the USA.

The birds died as a result of fireworks.

Wouldn't a lightning strike fry the birds?

Also wouldn't dead birds occurrances be as frequent as lightning strikes?

I thought that when lightning strikes, there's almost always physical "burn" evidence.

I'm not dismissing that this may be a "natural" occurance, it's just that, this is all too creepy. Kinda like when obama returned from Mexico (?) we were subjected to swine flu. There fore, we shouldn't leave any stone/theory unchecked.

Birds killed by lightening strikes???

So, maybe the fish were killed by earth quakes?

I swear....we are SO naive. People will believe anything so long as it doesn’t interfere with their comfort zone.
