Panic Room For Seeds in Doomsday

As I lay in bed, recovering from my surgical procedure on Tuesday, I saw this story on ABC about a seed storage house. It is where seeds for hundreds of plants will be stored if Doomsday should ever happen. A doomsday seed vault on a remote Norwegian island in the Arctic Ocean opened Tuesday, creating a bank of more than 100 million seeds representing every major food crop on Earth.
My only concern, I don't know if my hiking skills will ever allow me the expertise to get there, not to mention the swimming. Mightly frigid water. Mental note-gotta buy a boat! And if I do make it there, how will I get in? Where will I plant...hmmmm. This means a long hike back.... Much planning to do....

That is interesting. I read the other day, and you may have too, that the perverbial "they" are saying that the world will come to an end in about 7 BILLION years, so we have a while to go and we won't be here anyway! They also said human life will be extinct before that times comes - earth will draw closer and closer to the sun and eventually, all waters will dry up, as will plant life and human survival will not be possible. I really get a kick out of "scientists" vs. The Bible . . . I am very firm that when the time comes, no one but God knows the hour nor day, so everyone must be ready each and every moment. Hope you are feeling good today!!!
