    Can’t see any reference on TEP regarding the recent reporting of a children’s story writing competition which the BBC reported that the major word used by the children was ‘#’…ie two 11s crossed…have you read about this?

    The Bible says in the last days there will be earthquakes in diverse places Matthew 24:7. I know what is causing it , God made something that will come back to orbit around our sun every 3600 yrs. and it is coming closer now . The quakes will get worse and so will the volcanoes. It might cause Yellowstone to go off.
