But it was probably “meaningless”


Meteor explodes above the earth with the force of Hiroshima atomic bomb.

The largest fireball since the Chelyabinsk, Russia, explosion of 2013 that left 1,400 people injured occurred earlier this month. The meteor broke up with the force of the Hiroshima atomic bomb, equivalent to 13,000 tons of TNT; however, it went unnoticed due to the fact it occurred over the Atlantic ocean some 620 miles from the Brazil coast. With no densely populated areas in sight, the largest event of its type clocking in at atomic bomb proportions was not witnessed by a single human being.


God hurled the meteor off the cuff.

It was not a formal pronouncement on faith or morals.

And anyway, it was a mistranslation: the Italian word “meteori” actually means “teeny tiny little little innocuous and very small pebble.” The mainstream media ran with it using the more sensationalist meaning. To compound the mistake it added the “Hiroshima” thing to embarrass God.

Go back to what you were doing.
