It’s a time of signs, and here is another. Thousands of ducks mysteriously dying in Idaho.
First of all, the Mayans predicted that the end of the world will be in 2012, which is pretty close to the number of fallen fowl. Second, the Mayans or Incas or some group from that area worshiped a feathered serpent, and ducks have feathers. Third, in ancient Egypt the river Nile was a symbol of life, so dead birds in a river would be a sign of the end of the world. It doesn’t get much clearer than that!
