⁣The Fifth Horseman - Promise and Threat of the Atom

All-star dramatic series examining the promise and dangers of atomic energy.

Elfland Radio - Our all-day live stream is here: http://Listen.ChestertonRadio.com

The program says that the name of the fifth "horseman" is, "The Threat of the Atom." "It's the eleventh hour."

Revelation tells of four 'horsemen', euphemisms for conquest, war, famine and death. The four horsemen rode four horses of distinctively varying colors: 'Conquest' rode a white mount, 'War' a red mount, 'Famine' a black mount, and 'Death' a pale [or pale green] mount. The four horsemen were also equipped with varying armament: Conquest wielded a crown and bow, War a sword, Famine a scale, and Death a scythe
