The ocean is broken

What was missing was the cries of the seabirds which, on all previous similar voyages, had surrounded the boat.

The birds were missing because the fish were missing.

Exactly 10 years before, when Newcastle yachtsman Ivan Macfadyen had sailed exactly the same course from Melbourne to Osaka, all he’d had to do to catch a fish from the ocean between Brisbane and Japan was throw out a baited line.

“There was not one of the 28 days on that portion of the trip when we didn’t catch a good-sized fish to cook up and eat with some rice,” Macfadyen recalled.

But this time, on that whole long leg of sea journey, the total catch was two.

No fish. No birds. Hardly a sign of life at all.


The next leg of the long voyage was from Osaka to San Francisco and for most of that trip the desolation was tinged with nauseous horror and a degree of fear.

“After we left Japan, it felt as if the ocean itself was dead,” Macfadyen said.

“We hardly saw any living things. We saw one whale, sort of rolling helplessly on the surface with what looked like a big tumour on its head. It was pretty sickening.

“I’ve done a lot of miles on the ocean in my life and I’m used to seeing turtles, dolphins, sharks and big flurries of feeding birds. But this time, for 3000 nautical miles there was nothing alive to be seen.”

In place of the missing life was garbage in astounding volumes.

    what, when I am not a powerful force because of many inherent personal limitations , can one do? People may not listen to you to change on their thinking. I know we are making this world filth ridden planet.Will there be driven intervention to save the righteous against the evil ones?

      These are powerful questions. I suggest that you visit the site
      where you can discover the answers in The New Message from God. It teaches us that there are those with Knowledge and those without Knowledge- not in an academic sense- but where Knowledge is our connection to God. Developing or just re-establishing this connection is key.

    This shows that it is possible that we could end up with a used up planet. The only way to reverse this process is to take the steps to Knowledge, our spiritual intelligence. With Knowledge, we make the right decisions based on necessity & the preservation of what we have.
