The Thunder Blue Moon Meander

Well, well, well! Here we have a Blue Moon in July. And, as we all know, there is a series of prophesies surrounding such an event. Recent fragments dug from the sands nowhere near Nag Hammadi or the Dead Sea have been translated by somewhat less than sober scholars as follows:
