God's Amazing Miracle of the Moon Behaving Like the Moon

I wasn't going to bother with this "The Bible is Coming True - Lunar Eclipses Forecast Something or Another" piece in the Express. I was going to leave it. Just another fundamentalist saying silly things to attract attention.

And then I read this, from the Pastor forecasting something or another from a series of lunar eclipses to get us to look at him.
"And then, He chooses to do it on Passover, the Feast of the Tabernacles, Passover and the Feast of the Tabernacles? It is absolutely an impossibility that it could be random chance."
It is. It is an absolute impossibility that you could get successive lunar eclipses on these feasts by random chance.

Because the behaviour of the sun, moon and earth aren't bloody random chance, are they? They're determined by the law of gravity, and by the laws of motion. It's physics. That's not random chance.

And how come they happen on these feasts?

Because they're full moon feasts. That's why. Passover and Sukkot are full moon feasts.

And when do you get lunar eclipses? When the earth comes between the sun and the moon. In other words, although you don't always get a lunar eclipse at full moon, if it's a lunar eclipse, it is always a full moon.

So the reason why the lunar eclipses happen at Passover and Tabernacles is that they are just the kind of days when you get lunar eclipses. Not God's messing around with nature, just the God-given laws of nature, combined with a religion that attached its feasts to full moons.

It's amazing, is a lunar eclipse. It's a blessing from God, in my opinion. But it's not magic. And it's not, as the pastor seems to think, astrology. It's science. I love science.
