Return of the Plagues

The authors of the Old Testament resorted to divine wrath to explain a devastating series of natural disasters, which actually did hit the densely populated area along the Nile in those days. These disasters marked the defeat of a highly developed civilization in its daily struggle with nature a defeat that they could not explain in any other way. Three and a half thousand years later: disastrous storms and floods, epidemics, epizootic diseases and plagues of locusts, poisoned lakes and dying rivers it might appear as if the Biblical plagues were returning in the twenty-first century.
