think we should get the hint?

ok folks, with all of the stories in the told testimate such as soddem and gamorah..... i want to leave you with this.

since our foundation as a nation in the wee years of the 1700’s we have at almost ever step wedged God out of our society.  now with all of the destruction via hurricans and impending earthquaqes and volcanic eruptions maybe we should reconsider.

SEATTLE - The lava dome in the crater of Mount St. Helens apparently is growing, possibly a new sign of an impending eruption, a top volcano scientist said Wednesday.

ìThere seems to be some movement in the lava dome,î Jeff Wynn, chief scientist at the U.S. Geological Surveyís Cascade Volcano Observatory in Vancouver, Wash.

The pressure could come either from a buildup of gases within the 8,364-foot volcano, which erupted with devastating force in 1980, or from molten rock moving into the dome, Wynn said. The volcano began stirring again last week.

Seth Moran, a seismologist at the observatory, estimated the initial movement at four centimeters, about an inch and a half.

Wynn said the movement ìsort of suggests that weíre getting closerî to an eruption that could hurl rocks and ash a few thousand feet into the air.

He emphasized that the estimates were highly preliminary and inexact because there is only one measuring device on the dome, estimating scientists will need about 48 hours to interpret the data more clearly.

Scientists were keeping a close eye on the 925-foot-tall dome of hardened lava that has grown inside the crater since the May 18, 1980, eruption that blew the top off the mountain.

Swarms of tiny earthquakes ó more than 1,000 since the mountain began stirring on Thursday ó have gradually increased, cranking up to a level not seen since 1986, when the volcanoís last dome-building eruption occurred.
