Some links to author Shanna Swan, an epidemiologist whose research "looks at the impact of environmental chemicals on human sexuality and reproductive systems."


The gist of her research is that environmental toxins are severely affecting human ability to reproduce. In fact, the effect is being seen across all of the animal kingdom. The statistical numbers she has produced puts mankind on a general trend to an ending of human reproductive ability somewhere in the middle of the 21st century.

Here was a previous post that mentions Bisphenol-A, a chemical in some plastics that is harmful in the part-per-trillion range and adversely affects the reproductive systems of both humans and animals.

For some context between this post and with the theme of this thread, see this post, under the sub-title, Impending Ecological Catastrophe. (If you use Chrome, this link may take you right to the sub-title.)

There is also a relationship between this post and this one, under the part, Trumpet 4. (Or, if you use Chrome, this link may take you directly to that part of the post.)

And see also the next post (# 202) for additional related links to the topic of this post.

This post is in addition to the previous post (# 201) regarding how environmental pollution is adversely affecting human reproductivity.

In the main links in the previous post, epidemiologist Shanna Swan posits that her research is leading to the conclusion that environmental pollution, especially in the form of phthalates, is adversely affecting human reproductive ability. The trends her research revealed put mankind on a course to become relatively sterile by the latter half of the 21st century.

On this link you will find out a bit about what phthalates are and their widespread industrial and commercial use.

Years ago topics such as Erectile Dysfunction were only talked about in private, if at all. It seems now, though, the topic is not uncommon at all on TV commercials. I suspect that this is not just a sign of more willingness to talk about the subject, but is an evidence of the spreading effect the damaged environment is having on our reproductive systems.

This link has an article showing how widespread phthalates are circulating within the environment. Not only are there huge zones of decaying plastics floating in the oceans, but, they are even circulating in the atmosphere. The article brings out that there are roughly 1.2 - 1.8 billion tons of plastics that researchers are unable to account for. They are somewhere and everywhere in our environment.

Here is an article on melting ice caused by climate warming, and the ramifications this melting ice is having and will have on mankind.

The topic of melting ice is related to this main article in this thread, and specifically under the sub-title, Impending Ecological Catastrophe. (If you use Chrome, this link may take you directly to the sub-title.)

And another article on melting glaciers showing that there is evidence that the distribution of the melting ice has already shifted the earth's rotation and its poles: Here.

CBS News report showing how NOAA's 10 year weather reports showing what is "normal" are hiding the fact of climate change: Here.

Jesus has brought something new - a "new" way of "worshiping" Father: with spirit and with truth - that means a new way of "taking" the inspired word of God from the OT according to the will of Father / Jesus was the first to step on this "way"
It is written - John1:17 "grace and truth came through Jesus Christ."
Jesus quoted many times from OT, but never but put the quotation in relation with the "sixth world power" (Rome) existing that time
everything He quoted He connected with "God's people" and the way they were "worshiping" God [obedience or disobedience]
~~~
Daniel, after receiving a vision from God, to him was sent a special Messenger to tell him where and when will that vision take place ...
Daniel 10:14
Now I have come to help you understand what will happen
--- to your people
--- in the last days, for the vision refers to those days.

Jesus acted according to this "new" rule revealed to Daniel, proving to us that this is an important "truth"

the "literally" interpretation of Daniel's prophecies and chronologies (and then those of Revelation) were to count "one year for one day", counting from some ancient event until to some present (visible) event (taking place within the world)

what Jehovah sent to Daniel, was "things to happen "to your people" [that is to or within spiritual Israel] ... "in the last days" [ that is, the whole content of the prophetically actions, including all the chronologies, within the confines of the "last days"]

that means, "the seven times of gentiles" is a period of time within the "last days"

therefore, "The Gentile Times MUST be reconsidered"

An input of study on the "latter days" is found here

Cataloging 2 Reddit threads by the same person. Both are related to a local talk given by a CO. In the talk the CO mentions an onyx stone located in an Italian museum that contains evidence that Jerusalem was destroyed by the Babylonians in 607 BCE.
In the first thread (here) the OP discusses the talk and what the CO said (which the OP recorded).

In the second thread (here) the same OP discusses his efforts to locate the Italian museum in which the onyx stone resides.

All this makes for some interesting reading. Also, many of the comments in the thread are links to material related to when Jerusalem was really destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar.

Here was the thread where the OP linked to the two threads above. The topic is also about 607 vs. 587/86 BCE.

An article discussing possible evidence of Nebuchadnezzar II's madness which is the subject of Daniel chapter 4: Here.

And here is another web page discussing the same fragmentary (and possible) evidence.

Here is the main article in this thread where this is discussed. (Or, if you use Chrome browser, this link may take you to the specific sub-section where Nebuchadnezzar's madness is discussed.)


A YouTube video discussing this:


And here are the results of a Google search on the subject.

A post on another thread that discusses the problem of figuring "a day for a year" and applying it to the "seven times" of Dan 4:16, 23, see here.

A 23 page PDF discussing the 13 lunar positions mentioned on VAT4956 and what date(s) (588/87 and/or 568/67) they correspond to: Here.

A reference to this post has also been included in the Index (below).

A post on another thread discussing all the mentions of 70 years in 2nd Chronicles, Jeremiah, Daniel, and Zechariah: Here.

One of the interesting things about this post is that it shows that the references to 70 years in Zechariah provide a sort-of backdoor way to calculate the 587 BCE destruction of Jerusalem by Babylon.

Some links to articles on various aspects of climate change and impending societal collapse:

The main reason for mentioning these links is the connection with this main article in this thread. It discusses how impending climate catastrophe is related to the "seven times" and how, eventually, 'everyone living' would come to realize that only "the Most High" was capable of managing the planet.

I also updated the Index (linked below) with this post.
