There’s a lot of evidence that the mythological stories in the Bible have a basis in history. Noah’s Flood in Genesis was most likely a massive deluge in the Black Sea. Moses’s parting of the Red Sea was an unusually low tide that, while very infrequent, does occur.
And the plague of locusts sent by a vengeful Lord to the Egyptians after they refused to let the people of Israel out of bondage was just a real deal plague of locust sent by a vengeful Lor–OH MY GOD IT’S REAL, IT’S ALL REAL.
The people of Argentina are currently experiencing what it’s like to anger God, as He has inflicted upon them a horrific plague of locusts. Watch that video up there and then free any Jewish people you currently have enslaved, lest you be next.
From The Guardian:
Argentina’s agricultural inspection agency has said it is keeping up efforts to control a locust infestation threatening crops in at least three states.
The agency said it had controlled 31 new outbreaks of the insect in the states of Catamarca, Santiago del Estero and Cordoba.
The plague affected about 700,000ha (1.7m acres), said the Rural Confederations of Argentina in an emailed statement. It is the worst infestation since 1954, according to Juan Pablo Karnatz, president of a farmers’ association in Santiago del Estero.
Things are only going to get worse, it appears, according to Time:
It’s the worst explosion in the last 60 years,” Diego Quiroga, chief of vegetative protection for the government’s agriculture inspection agency, said in an interview with the Times. “It’s impossible to eradicate; the plague has already established itself. We’re just acting to make sure it’s the smallest it can be and does the least damage possible.”
And dear God does it sound wrathful.
The locusts first appeared in small areas last June and have now spread, aided by a mild winter, making it more difficult for officials to control their impact, according to the paper. Farmers last year reported locust clouds over four miles long and nearly two miles high.
JESUS FUCK MAN.
