Survivors Ch 1 Left Behind Whaat No Rapture Apocalyptic Movie
Book One Left Behind No one was prepared when the trouble started. But those who said they knew were the most unprepared. Rayford Strait was not a believer.He never expected any of this ever. But when things changed, he changed with them. Rayford's wife and son were believers. Irene Strait attended church faithfully, in Prospect Heights, Illinois.
Vernon Billings, Irene's pastor, often taught that trouble was coming. He had many books and tutorials telling what to expect. He was almost obsessed with studies about the future. Irene knew from Vernon, that a leader was soon going to control the whole world. He would cruelly persecute believers. Death destruction would be everywhere. Even America would not be safe. Irene shared this with 13yearold Raymie. and with her 19yearold daughter, Chloe. But Chloe was â€” like her father â€” a cynic.
She had little interest in things she could not see and touch. Raymie liked the books, and the tutorials. They were scary at times, but he would never have to go through what they were describing. He would float to heaven before it started,because he had asked Jesus into his heart. Raymie prayed for his father and sister.He wanted them to say the prayer too. Then they could all go to heaven together. Irene prayed for Rayford and Chloe too. She did not want them to be left behind. She was confident that she and Raymie were safe.
Her books and tapes and tutorials promised that she, and others like her, would be safe. The books said the suffering was for othersâ€¦like the Jews. They have had more practice with suffering! Rayford Strait was flying from London to Chicago when the attack started. He was halfway there when Civil Aviation authorities in Chicago discovered unidentified planes over Canada. They were crossing Rayford's flight path. (It was 3:30am in Chicago.) They told Rayford to change direction, but then a different message came through.
All aircraft going over the Ice Cap must turn back immediately. Rayford asked for an explanation, but he received a shouted warning: â€œAll flights to North Americamust turn back immediately. â€œThis is extremely urgent. It is from American Civil Defence. quot;I repeat: Turn back! Do not try to land in North America!â€� Aircraft had come like a swarm of bees from the north, across Canada. Missiles came with themâ€¦ thousands of them, high above the aircraft. The missiles landed moments before the bombers entered U.S. airspace.
Each missile was aimed at a particular U.S. city or military target. Some were intercepted, but America's missile defence system was mostly useless. Enemy missiles were each surrounded by metallic balloons. The metal confused tracking devices on American antimissile missiles. Most defence weapons missed their marks. While U.S. missiles tracked other missiles, enemy planes sneaked into U.S. airspace. What the missiles did not destroy, the bombers did. The public believed America was safefrom an attack like this.
Top 10 End of the World Novels TopTenzNet
Top 10 End of the World Novels 10. Earth Abides by George R. Stewart (1949) How The World Ends: Super epidemic wipes outmost of humanity, leaving only very scattered survivors. Scenario: The protagonist tries to maintainthe memory of civilization as the leader of a tiny postplague community. Coolness Factor: Despite being over 60 yearsold, Earth Abides holds up very well as a work of postApocalyptic science fiction.The story begins as a last man alive tale,
and turns more philosophical once the protagonistbegins to assemble a band of survivors who scratch out a living among the ruins of SanFrancisco. Likelihood of Scenario Coming True: 3 outof 10. A worldwide pandemic is among the more plausible doomsday scenarios, and Stewart'sobservations of the tribalism that would likely arise among the survivors are chillingly realistic. 9. The Day of the Triffids by John Wyndham(1951) How The World Ends: A mysterious comet passesby Earth, leaving nearly all of humanity blinded in its wake.
Scenario: One survivor who retains his sightbattles for survival in a world rapidly being overrun by mobile, maneating plants calledTriffids. Coolness Factor: The opening sequence, inwhich the protagonist wakes up in a deserted , was chillingly reproduced in themovie 28 Days Later and the television series The Walking Dead. This is British scifi atits bestâ€“who would have thought that a bunch of plants could be so badassé Likelihood of Scenario Coming True: 0 outof 10. Since there is no such thing as Triffids, I think we can sleep soundly knowing thisbook, while a great read, is not a prophecy
of our collective fate. 8. I Am Legend by Richard Matheson (1954) How the World Ends: An epidemic of rampagingvampirism. Scenario: The last man alive is under siegein Los Angeles and is barricaded in his house every night, venturing out only during theday to forage for supplies and kill vampires in their sleep. Coolness Factor: Hollywood absolutely lovesthis story, having made it into three major motion pictures starring Vincent Price, CharlestonHeston and most recently (and regrettably),
Will Smith. The book is far superior to allthree, especially the ending, which twists the reader's perception of who really isthe monster. Likelihood of Scenario Coming True: 0 outof 10. To the disappointment of millions of Twilight fans everywhere, there is no suchthing as vampires. 7. Summer of the Apocalypse by James Van Pelt(2006) How The World Ends: After a pandemic killsoff most of humanity, leaking radiation from abandoned nuclear power plants begins to finishthe job. Scenario: A story told in two parts, the protagonistis a teenager when the epidemic hits and an
old man in a small community of survivorsas it reaches its climax. Coolness Factor: The author effortlessly weavesthe two ends of the story together throughout the book. Plenty of action combines with momentsof quiet philosophical rumination and an emotionally charged ending. Likelihood of Scenario Coming True: 4 outof 10. I give this book kudos for recognizing, five years before the Fukushima catastrophe,that the world's nuclear power plants represent a dire potential longterm threat to humanity'ssurvival. 6. Sleepless by Charlie Huston (2010)
