Since December 2004, we have been inundated with the question, "What do the codes say about the tsunami?" With a disaster of, shall we say, Biblical proportions, one cannot help but ponder, "Is the Hand of God present in this event or is this just an act of nature?"
With multiple spellings of tsunami to choose from, and after narrowing his search down to two spellings of tsunami, Moshe Aharon Shak presents his findings and poses several questions regarding the import of the tsunami. With tsunami codes passing through Jeremiah and Exodus, he poses the questions:
- What is a tsunami?
- Is it crime and punishment?
- Why punish?*
- When did it start and what happened?
- Where did it happen?
*Links to articles about the sex trade and child slavery industries in South Asia, all posted prior to the tsunami occurring, are provided at the end of the article.
After reading about these tsunami codes, we think it is unavoidable to consider the question: "Was the tsunami an act of nature or the wrath of God?"
