Helicopters With Hair Like Women?

And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. Revelation 9:8

As unlikely as it is that the locust-like creatures of Revelation chapter nine are helicopters, it is quite often proposed. Each feature given in chapter nine is interpreted as a piece of military hardware. This is done by those who have a total bias against anything outside the realm of nature as they know it. This is called the anti-supernaturalistic bias. Old and young have it.

I have tried to reveal the errors in this interpretation by using the old word substitution technique. You put their word in the place of the Bible's word and read it that way. Thus we have helicopters with hair like women.

While stationed at Ft.Knox, I came across a helicopter square dance used as a demonstration for visitors. Helicopters were dressed up as "hill billys" and performed a dance to country music. It did show extreme skill on the part of the pilots, but no one thought the helicopters, with pigtails fastened to them, were locusts.

Of all the books of the Bible in which to deny the supernatural, Revelation must be the worst to try it in. But the deniers persist. In its extreme form, this is exhibited by a denial of the death and resurrection of Christ, because this was supernatural.
