I know in the movie Bloodline Haywood was asked about the apocalyptic event...he said a "Deluge"
Now it's a deluge, preceded by a global pandemic, and concluding with a "great cull" (after which, I presume the chosen ones inherit the earth). I don't know where he gets this idea from, but it's intimated, by Rob Howells, that it may have something to do with the Third Secret of Fatima; not the version released by the Vatican in 2000. Anyway, usual Book of Revelation, End of Days type thing. Haywood goes on to suggest that the key to the apocalypse is somehow "encoded" at Rennes-le-Chateau.
IMO, belief in a pre-ordained apocalypse, or belief in prophecy of any kind, is completely barmy, but this seems to be a prevalent sub-theme of the Rennes mystery, and why that should be is an interesting question. Elizabeth van Buren wrote a whole book on the subject, after all. Perhaps it's for no better reason than RLC attracts all manner of people, who believe in all manner of things, so millenarianism is bound to be in there somewhere. Perhaps the advent of "2012" encourages this type of thinking. Perhaps it's something else. I don't know, though I did find that part of Rob's book quite interesting, even though I don't believe in that sort of thing.
Incidentally, Rain mentioned Bugarach, and the gathering there of those awaiting the world's end, and I'm pleased to say that when I went there the other day there was no sign of these people. I only went into the church and around the village, then out the other side round the base of the mountain, so I didn't really see that much of the immediate area, but I was half-expecting some kind of teepee city of end-of-the-worlders to be camped out there, despoiling the landscape, but thankfully not. They must have been hiding in the hills that day.
YU55 is going to pass by us at about 2330 hrs, UK time, this evening, but so far away, and so small, that it won't be visible to the naked eye.
A deluge can me many things
it can mean a flood (the melting of the poles ice caps)
it can mean To overwhelm with a large number or amount;
DEBT and devaluation of currency
it caused WWII
I don't know if many know this but we are in a unannounced economic WWIII
a country in debt loses its rights ....no shots are fired but the austere measures are felt by the people of the country
it usually leads to war that is what history tells us
the other connotation of the Deluge
is from the Bible
Noahs Ark and the Summerian texts of Gilgamesh
It is as you said Richard the 'great cull" and only the chosen ones survive
that is the belief in Revelations ...the Seven Seals that is one Sauniere's regalia
Belief in prophecies
Howell is right many don't belief the third prophecy of Fatima is the one released to the public
Pope Benedict was very involved in the releasing of the third prophecy
There is also Saint Malachy's prophecy is in play...the end of the Vatican
I believe Howell is right that there is a code per say at Rennes Chateau
what it means leaves many possibilities
that Jesus had children and was married is just one of them
It is the equality of women that is another
