Inasmuch, however, as the kingdom of Gyges did not extend to the areas of Meshech and Tubal, as is implied by Ezekiel 38:2 with respect to the kingdom of Gog, there is a problem with assuming that Gog is identical with Gyges, the similarity of the names notwithstanding.

On Oct. 21, the world did not end, despite predictions by Christian radio personality Harold Camping. We have by now laughed him off, but perhaps we owe Camping one more serious hearing. I for one can't help but ask: What if the apocalypse had happened? Or if not "the" apocalypse, then at least something fairly apocalyptic? That is what occurred 900 years ago. Thousands of people expected the apocalypse, and they got it, though not the one they were expecting. What if that happened again?

By now, millions of people should have mysteriously disappeared from the face of the earth, the Soviet Union should have invaded Israel and Jesus should have descended from the heavens to usher in a real New World Order. So went the rough scenario outlined in 1970 by Christian author Hal Lindsey in his bestseller, "The Late Great Planet Earth."

It would be unfortunate and a bit disingenuous to lump the criticism of media coverage ofGeorge Bush with those who claim conspiracies and nefarious practices by journalists ("The Bashing: So Subtle It's Undetectable," by Howard Rosenberg, April 30). Many Americans, who are neither stereotypes or foaming-at-the-mouth conservatives, see left-leaning bias in news coverage in the mainstream media. I am a Republican and conservative and I am not racist, homophobic and I don't fall "somewhere between reptile and repugnant."

The countdown to Armageddon, according to some Bible prognosticators, began in 1948 with the establishment of modern Israel. Interpreting a passage in Matthew's gospel, forecasters say that the generation that sees Israel restored will also see the end of time and Christ's return on the clouds. But nobody agrees how long a generation is. Author Hal Lindsey's reading was 40 years, placing doomsday sometime around 1988. Others say 20 to 100 years, which could push Armageddon back to 2048.

The opening of a sorely needed high school in a converted Department of Water and Power office building in Sun Valley will be delayed by more than a year as workers remove mold that could pose health hazards, school officials said. The top two floors of the four-story Anthony Office Building were scheduled to open in September to help relieve overcrowding at Francis Polytechnic High School across the street on Arleta Avenue.

Diazed and Confused: Cameron Diaz is reportedly so tired of the media that she has ceased reading newspapers, according to Olympia Daily World, a radio tip sheet. That's a shame because today is The Times' once-a-century sweepstakes, in which we randomly select a citizen and award them $40 million if they see their name in the paper and call in. The big winner is Cameron Diaz. Too bad she won't see this. We were even going to throw in dinner with Off-Kilter (a $10 value).
