Top X: Bible Weather

Play Video

From New York Newsday:

“Hmmm, what two things in the universe fascinate just about all of us, even though (perhaps because) we can’t truly understand them? Maybe the weather? And the Bible?”

“Al Roker knows. That’s why his production company paired the pull of each, for a Top X hour (that’s Top 10) of ancient stories, modern science, and the many ways the twain shall meet. That’s the pattern. Footage from (earthly) hell. Stories from (God in) heaven. Professors from Iowa, Emory, Texas Tech and The Jewish Theological Seminary interpret such ancient tales as Jonah, the burning bush, and Sodom and Gomorrah (“Weather events to both bless and to curse are attributed to God”), while Weather Channel meteorologists explore the natural phenomena behind floods, sinkholes, red tides, meteoric blazes, sandstorms and, getting local, massive storms, of which Sandy is of course the star.”
