All Creation Groaning

Anyone else read this news article , and immediately think of the eighth chapter of Romans, where Paul talks about all creation groaning as if in childbirth? Groaning...screaming...potato....po-tah-to (especially to someone in labor). Spooky, no?

I saw it this morning. I hope someone captures the sound and posts it on the internet some where. I'd like to hear what it sounds like.

Neat, I hadn't seen this.

david, there is a link in the article to some audio of the earth's "screams". Reminded me of school, chalkboards and fingernails. EEEKK

Thinking about it some more...I wonder if the metaphor is really "woman in travail" and perhaps more along the lines of Florence Foster Jenkins -- in other words, a really, really [i]bad[/i] singer whose ego far outpaces her talents?
