– Did ‘Weather Warfare’ Cause Biblical Midwest Flooding? Please Pray For America’s Devastated Farmers!
Back in 2013, a United Nations report put out by their ‘Food and Agriculture Organization’ urged ‘global citizens’ to eat more insects instead of conventional meats, with bugs ‘more sustainable, cheaper to produce and nutritious’ according to that 2013 report.
While thankfully, bugs as main meals or even snacks never made it to the tables of most Americans, as Mac Slavo reports in this new story, several snack makers have marketed insect-based products in the US, including Chirps chips and Chapul protein bars.
Slavo’s story is an eye-opener. Titled “Scientist: The Food Crisis Will Have Humans Eating Maggots For Protein“, what does Dr. Louwrens Hoffman know that we don’t know? According to Dr. Hoffman, “Maggot sausages will be the meat of the future.”
With Dr. Hoffman’s warning coming at a time when record-breaking flooding has done Biblical damage to our nation’s breadbasket while the insane-left pushes to do away with cows, as Slavo’s story reports, ‘food scientists’ at the University of Queensland in Australia are incorporating insects such as maggots and locusts into a range of specialty foods, including sausage, as well as formulating sustainable insect-based feeds for the livestock themselves.
Would you eat insects such as maggots, locusts, crickets and other bugs as sources of protein? Dr. Hoffman and other scientists claim insects are much more sustainable to the Earth than other meats. Just checking out their language gives us another reason to prepare.:
“Would you eat a commercial sausage made from maggots? What about other insect larvae and even whole insects like locusts? The biggest potential for sustainable protein production lies with insects and new plant sources,” said Dr. Hoffman.
Hoffman says that the meat industry is not sustainable, but people can start eating insects instead. “An overpopulated world is going to struggle to find enough protein unless people are willing to open their minds, and stomachs, to a much broader notion of food,” said Hoffman. The scientist says that conventional livestock production will soon be unable to meet global demand for meat. That means that other “fillers” and alternatives will be needed to supplement the food supply with sufficient protein sources, according to The New York Post.
“In other words, insect protein needs to be incorporated into existing food products as an ingredient,” he says. “One of my students has created a very tasty insect ice cream.” The Queensland Alliance for Agriculture and Food Innovation (QAAFI) team is focusing on disguising insects in pre-prepared foods, says Hoffman, as studies have shown Westerners shy away from eating whole insects.
Hoffman admitted that eating bugs might seem unpalatable to Westerners, “for many millions of people around the world they are a familiar part of the diet.” He also calls for a “global reappraisal of what can constitute healthy, nutritional and safe food for all.”
As this story over at Christianity Today reported, the Midwestern flooding has also exposed a much bigger and systematic crisis across the region and America with billions of dollars of damage done to the farms that produce much of the nation’s food, with not only the farms destroyed and many farmers possibly never going back to work while a billion dollars of food was destroyed as well. Their story went so far as to compare the Midwest flooding to the Genesis flood.
Floods lay bare that which was already true. This is what the Genesis Flood does, of course, and it is also how Peter describes the coming judgment at the end of all things. He likens it Noah’s flood, going on to say, “the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare” (2 Peter 3:10).
Athanasius argues that miracles are often a kind of supernaturally accomplished acceleration of natural events: Nature will, given enough time, turn water into wine—rains will fall and nourish grape vines, the grapes will be harvested, and then eventually ferment to become wine. Jesus simply sped the process up at the wedding in Cana. Events like a flood, then, might be read as an inversion of a miracle—a rapid acceleration of the unmaking of the cosmos following the events of Genesis 3.
Sadly, I cannot help but see this quickening destruction happening in my home state. The flood has soaked thousands of homes and hundreds of businesses to ruin in places that already struggled with a trajectory of economic decline and despair brought about by forces outside their control.
To understand the impact of these catastrophic floods in Nebraska—what they will mean for the communities in the weeks, months, and years after the rivers recede and the roads clear—we have to look at the state of the farmers, the men and women who have loved this place even when no one else did.
Whether they can recover will depend not only on how the “bomb cyclone” runoff hit their land over the past week, but how they have been hit by the pressures of the agriculture industry over the past several decades. Their devastation brings a loss to all of us, no matter where in the country we live.
Then we have this August of 2018 story over at Debating Europe titled “Would You Eat Insects To Save The Planet?“ within which they layed out their reasons that human beings should start eating bugs and within their few paragraphs they start tossing around terms such as ‘sustainable‘ and ‘wormburgers‘ being needed to ‘save the planet‘. And not surprisingly, they, too, bring up ‘cow flatulance‘ as one of the great dangers facing the planet Earth. You can’t make this stuff up! From their story.:
