(Zechariah 14:12) “And this is the scourge with which Jehovah will scourge all the peoples who wage war against Jerusalem: Their flesh will rot away while they stand on their feet, their eyes will rot away in their sockets, and their tongues will rot away in their mouths. It has been speculated in the past that Jehovah might accomplish this by the use of radiation of some sort. Now Jehovah definitely has the ability use radiation if He wished to, but it would take an extremely high dose of radiation to kill instantly, and that high dose of radiation would cook the flesh, not rot it. Today, when someone drowns or has a heart attack, they can be resuscitated several minutes afterward. When someone is killed in a car accident, their organs can be kept on ice and implanted into a recipient many hours later. A dead body takes a couple of days before it starts to rot in a warm temperature, and even longer in cold. The point is: There is still life in them even though they are considered dead. Perhaps Zechariah 14:12 is telling us that when Jehovah judges those to be unworthy of life, that He will take away their life instantly and thoroughly. If that is the case then there would not even be any cellular life left, no more spinning protons, neutrons, and electrons to hold the flesh together. The result of which would be instant decomposition, a complete rot of all soft tissue throughout the body. It would be as if a sculpture made out of little magnets clinging together, were to suddenly lose all of its’ magnetism. The sculpture would instantly fall to the ground in a heap. (Magnet sculptures) But we have a skeleton. And if it would take a couple of seconds for the skeleton to fall over, that would give just a moment of time for the instantly rotted flesh, eyes, and tongue to splash down as rotten liquid goo. The eyes in the sockets of the skull and the tongue in the jaw. What do you think of this hypothesis? :^) Dave
