I love this quote from the movie Independence Day.
The movie is set in a future where the United States is going to be attacked by a robot-controlled space robot and the president has no idea what time it’s happening, or what he did to be attacked.
The point isn’t to get the president ready for a space robot attack, the point is to get the president ready for something. Of course, in a movie, that something is usually a disaster. In the real world, people just go in their own way. If I were president, I’d be more prepared. I’m not sure I can be prepared.
It’s true that most of us can’t always control when a disaster (or a disaster of opportunity) will happen. Most of us don’t know what time disaster will happen in advance. In fact, I don’t think we have a plan for what happens if we don’t know what time disaster will happen.
This is something that happens in real life too. When people do make plans for disasters, they generally dont know what they are doing.
I dont think we as humans can control or predict the disasters. I think that is why we have the word disaster on our names. It was once a word that was related to a real disaster but in modern times it has been mostly used to describe a bad thing that happened to another person. It conjures up an image of a disaster that you have no control over.
The word disaster has this implication that it is a “blessing,” a gift from God, or a thing that can be overcome with good works. The word comes from the Greek word dei- “to destroy.
There is nothing wrong with a disaster. In fact, it can be a good thing. In the Bible, the Book of Ecclesiastes, we find a very good story about a man named Jubal who was given the ability to predict that his wife’s life was about to end. He was able to predict the disaster, then the woman’s life was saved. The man was called Jubal by God because he used his knowledge to help someone else.
There is an ironic twist to this story. Jubal did not have the ability to predict the disaster himself. He had a divinely inspired friend who gave him the ability. Jubal was also the one who, when he saw the disaster coming, was able to get the divine friend to help him.
For Jubal, the situation was quite simple. His friend, who was a bit of a jerk, told him that his wife was about to die. Jubal was just a little bit in shock and said he would take care of it. Then the wife died. Then Jubal was just a little bit in shock.
