Apocalypse: The Beginning of the End

Part 1
The first of a 4 part series about events that are changing our world

I've been following the recent spate of global unrest/tragedies that appear seemingly connected.
Now, I am sure a great many Christian and doomsday 'fans' would be feeling vindicated.

Common people are standing up for equality and freedom, does this mean we are approaching the end of the world?
When ruthless monarchies and despotic dictators are being overthrown, does this mean Jesus is coming?
When nature decides to wipe off parts of one of the wealthiest countries in the world, does this mean nature is revolting and God has decided our time's up now?
No, No and No.

I think our Creator is a very patient Entity. Patient unto the end. Omnipresent. All forgiving.
The End is not for us to ponder upon. Prepare. Not panic.

The Book of Revelations in the Holy Bible reveal a picture of fire and fury and evil of wonderful proportions that signal the End days.
He says that Satan will rule all over the world, every single person - believer and others will be tried and tested.
He says that we will turn against each other. And no, I am not talking about what happened in Egypt. I am talking about when a son turns against his dad and a daughter turns against her mom. The 'Good' (aka The truly Holy) will be tested and the Evil will prevail.
The End times will have global catastrophes that we will have no control over.

So what happened in Japan is truly tragic. TEPCO had a notorious record of falsifying records of previous inspections and accidents.
But as a person who has read about the Chernobyl tragedy, this is surreal and a bad case of deja vu. I now wonder why the 'brains' behind the Daiichi reactors didn't make sufficient contingency plans for something that could be so obvious. Or what in the world were they thinking when created a nuclear plant on one of the most seismically active zones in the world?
This is the Chernobyl of our making. And not the last one.

I shudder to think of the millions who will suffer for generations to come. The fallout of our vices. The sludge waste of our greed.

Could someone please help me understand why we need nuclear power so badly?
Why are we so resistant against energy that is safe, renewable yet won't radiate a dozen generations in a disaster?
Why must we let our children's children suffer for sins we've committed?

Japan. Our prayers are for you and we hope that the generations ahead will forgive all of us.
