There is a tide in the affairs of men,
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries. William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar IV iii 217
All the waters
Dashing on their shores
Seemed to be battling them
With the blows
Of drowned bodies. Leonardo da Vinci
The swollen waters
Gyrate in the lake
That contains them,
And with eddying vortices
And leap into the air
With muddy spume. Leonardo da Vinci
And destructive terrors
Caused by rives in flood
Be set before every other
Dreadful and terrifying
Movement. Leonardo da Vinci
The Bishop of Carlisle [COE] recently ... said that the floods in northern Yorkshire that devastated a large part of England in the summer, and killed and dispossessed a large number of people, were punishment for homosexuality. To connect meteorology to morality seems to me I have say flat-out idiotic. Christopher Hitchens
The great Britain including England
Will come to be flooded by very high water. Nostradamus III-70
For all its drama and power the impact of our recent extreme weather is nothing compared to history. Though 2014 was the wettest winter ever recorded, with floods of Biblical magnitude, the human costs are not even on the same scale as in the past.

And behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die. Genesis 6:17
For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the Earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the Earth. Genesis 7:4
The Nephilim was very human-like Beings of great stature. The Guinness Book of World Records lists the tallest man in medical history as Robert Wadlow, who was eight feet eleven inches. If we compare him to a twelve-foot Biblical giant, it makes him look like a shortie. This ancient Sumerian tablet seems to illustrate the same kind of proportions. There is also supporting physical evidence that giants did exist in these times. In the late 1950s a forty-seven inch human femur was found in Turkey. This would make the Being between fourteen and sixteen feet tall. It is rumoured that buried below the Vatican are the skeletal remains of giants which once walked the Earth. The evidence is hidden by the Catholic Church because it is a truth they do not want in the public domain. The Bible goes on to say that God flooded the Earth to destroy the Giants. The Great Flood is spoken about in many other religious texts. And probably was a real event. The Bible is also littered with references to new technology. Richard D Hall, RichPlanet online

And the giants of the land, also, stood afar off; and there went forth a curse upon all people that fought against God;
And the fire of mine indignation is kindled against them; and in my hot displeasure will I send in the floods upon them, for my fierce anger is kindled against them. Joseph Smith’s Book of Moses 7:15&34
And there came forth a great famine into the land, and the Lord cursed the earth with a sore curse, and many of the inhabitants thereof died.
And the Lord said unto Noah: The daughters of thy sons have sold themselves; for behold mine anger is kindled against the sons of men, for they will not hearken to my voice.
And in those days there were giants on the earth, and they sought Noah to take away his life; but the Lord was with Noah, and the power of the Lord was upon him.
And also, after that they had heard him, they came up before him, saying: Behold, we are the sons of God; have we not taken unto ourselves the daughters of men? And are we not eating and drinking, and marrying and giving in marriage? And our wives bear unto us children, and the same are mighty men, which are like unto men of old, men of great renown. And they hearkened not unto the words of Noah.
And the Lord said: I will destroy man whom I have created, from the face of the earth, both man and beast, and the creeping things, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth Noah that I have created them, and that I have made them; and he hath called upon me; for they have sought his life.
And God said unto Noah: The end of all flesh is come before me, for the earth is filled with violence, and behold I will destroy all flesh from off the earth. Moses 8:4&15&18&21&26&30
