The Eyes of Darkness, a 1981 thriller by bestselling suspense author Dean Koontz, tells of a Chinese military lab that creates a virus as part of its biological weapons programme. The lab is located in Wuhan, which lends the virus its name, Wuhan-400. A chilling literary coincidence or a case of writer as unwitting prophet?
In The Eyes of Darkness, a grieving mother, Christina Evans, sets out to discover whether her son Danny died on a camping trip or if – as suspicious messages suggest – he is still alive. She eventually tracks him down to a military facility where he is being held after being accidentally contaminated with man-made microorganisms created at the research centre in Wuhan.
If that made the hair on the back of your neck stand up, read this passage from the book: “It was around that time that a Chinese scientist named Li Chen moved to the United States while carrying a floppy disk of data from China’s most important and dangerous new biological weapon of the past decade. They call it Wuhan-400 because it was developed in their RDNA laboratory just outside the city of Wuhan.”
NETFLIX made a movie too The Silence
The elites meet at the Munich Security Conference to discuss the end of western nations. It is a continuation of the Davos Summit. The term is WESTLESSNESS.
While we were speaking to Power Hour Nation last time an old colleague of mine was preparing to end his life. It was a mortal blow to his family, the city and his friends and colleagues. I mentored Mike a generation ago. He told me he wanted to be a police officer. I said, I'll help you. I did. We resolved past issues. I introduced him to the Lord and started praying for him. He appreciated that. We were all very close in those days. He took my beliefs in the trade with him. Everything I've read about him reveals he applied them. The world should know men like Mike Austin. Now he is gone. However, even in death he can be the role model to others. I will make that happen today. If you're troubled, there are answers. I recommend In Touch Ministries to all. This week's series on Brokenness tells you the process of the trials we face and how to master them. Mike's life was devoted to the world. Death is never the answer. Choose life. I offer his epitaph to lead you away from dispair to a path you may not have known. In that regard Mike will save lives forever.
Today's guest will be Joe Lauria from Consortium News.
