Have you ever noticed that Haiti sounds a lot like Hades?
Maybe this is prophecy.
What if some profit from the past had the insight to foresee that a nation which would suffer the fate of a man-made hell would have a name that sounded like Hades? Hey, maybe even the “s” at the end of the word Hades even implied multiple Haiti-s?
I am not a scholar on this. I only offer this speculation up as something to think about.
Apparently the Judeo-Christian version of the word “Hades” originally meant something like mass grave.
(Approximately 70,000 Haitians died in the 2010 earthquake.)
...In a recent post, I offered up the possibility that Hell is not a place so much as a time – and that our accumulated behavior could create Hell (or Heaven) right here on Earth.
Quite likely humanity's greatest fear is that we destroy so much of the Environment that the whole world becomes like the worst of Haiti – everywhere... Could someone with Nostradamus-like prophesy have foreseen that?
I don't know.
But what I do suspect is that you can't blame Hell on God – if we make it ourselves.
