According to The Atlantic, there has been an explosion at a fertilizer plant near Waco, Texas. This seems pretty strange, because it is almost 20 years to the day of the end of the siege of the Branch Davidians’ compound in Waco, Texas that there would be an explosion in that area. That siege started on 28 February 1993. And it ended on 19 April 1993. On the other hand, if I were a reporter, I’d be hyper sensitive to anything happening around this time. You may remember that the Oklahoma City bombing took place on the second anniversary of the end of that siege.
But it is a fertilizer plant. And if we learned anything from the Oklahoma City bombing, it is that fertilizer is combustible. And this is a big explosion. According to the report, it was felt 100 miles away in Dallas. What’s more, there are reports of severely injured people—and maybe more.
So is it yet another confused person who thinks that human life is not as important as political ideology? I can’t say. Check back here for updates, because I do want to know. If it turns out to be nothing more than a coincidence, it will mean that God is cruel. Otherwise, it will mean that man is cruel.
I tend to think that both are.
