Aliens are waiting on us

This pandemic doesn't seem terribly biblical. Surely a wrathful creator God would send something more deadly than 2-3% mortality...

He supposedly drowned the entire planet, for example. If He wants to get our attention, an asteroid would be a better vehicle...
So it would take destroying the earth or most of the people on it to get your attention to what He’s been telling us. Thanks a lot. That’s what caused the other times too.

How is sending everybody a Christmas card "destroying the earth or most of the people on it "?

The locusts are as believable as a global pandemic virus. They’re both epic scourges that were predicted for the end times. What we’re experiencing in the “real world” is Biblical.
No, it's not. Christians have been saying we aer in the end times for two thousand years. There's nothing to indicate that you and others saying we are in it now are any moer correct than all the others who've been wrong for millenia.

The Bible called those the ”last days.” If you look at the history of the earth, 2,000 years is a drop in the bucket. And we’re seeing more and more of the end times predictions now. So it’s not unreasonable to think that.

How does the last 2000 years compare to 68 to 66 million years ago, when there were fricking T. rex wondering around, culminating in a huge asteroid strike that wiped out most of the life on the planet? You don't get much more end times than that!

When did humans show up?

No, it didn't. It is YOU who are calling these the last days, not the bible.

Completely irrelevant.

Exactly what Christians have been saying for 2,000 years. They've been wrong every time, and there's no reason to think you are any more correct than they.

No, the Bible refers to the New Testament days as the final days.

“And now in these final days, he has spoken to us through his Son.” ~ Hebrews 1:2 (NLT)
”In these last days, he has spoken to us by his Son.” (CSB)
”has in these last days spoken to us by His Son” (KJV)

And it was wrong. The New Testament days weren't the final days.

That doesn't follow from what I wrote.

This pandemic doesn't seem biblical. At all.

Ok, skeptic.
I think he has a point. "Last days" indicates a period of time more easily measured in days, not years or even centuries. It is quite a stretch to call 2000 years "last days".

It is like saying you are in the last minutes of your life. Sure you might live another 30 years, but that is the last 16 million minutes of your life. You can bend the words to mean what you want, but it is very unlikely the person who said the words had that in mind.

Only if you’re thinking like a human. God doesn’t. He’s not bound by earth time, like we are.

Isaiah 55:
8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.
9 “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.”

People thought Christ’s first visit to earth was imminent, for a long long time. By earth years, it was a long time. By universal (God’s) time, it wasn’t.
