Kirk Cameron: Dead birds aren't the end of the world

After thousands of birds mysteriously fell out of the sky in Arkansas on New Year's Eve, it was only natural that Anderson Cooper turned to an expert for an explanation. Enter Kirk Cameron.

The former "Growing Pains" star — a born-again Christian who has appeared in movies based on the end-of-days-themed "Left Behind" books — appeared on "Anderson Cooper 360" to discuss whether he thought the dead birds were a sign of the apocalypse.

"Well, I first think that they ought to call a veterinarian, not me. You know, I'm not the religious-conspiracy-theorist go-to guy, particularly," Cameron said. "But I think it's really kind of silly to try to equate birds falling out of the sky with some kind of an end-times theory."

    kirk is genuine...much more than i can say about the rest of you people. a true 'talk it' 'walk it' type of individual. of course that doesn't mean we all suffer from some type of hypocrisy at times. but i don't place my trust in men, thank god! for i know we all are sinners. kirk recognizes that fact. he is lost without the redemption offered to him through jesus christ. just the same as you and i. check it out - where are YOU going to spend eternity? you are a fool if you don't believe in the afterlife, and the judgment to come. i'm placing my bet on heaven rather than hell. hope to see you there.

    FYI according to the bible no man or angel in heaven knows the date for the end of time.

  5. Not a kook

    Kirk Cameron is a self righteous asshole. This was evident some 20 years ago when his beautiful co star Julie Mccullough posed for Playboy and he had a big tizzy on the set.... refusing to work with her ... A complete religeous kook.

    They said;
    I said;
    Is it necessary when people on earth suffer poverty?
    Why creating a soul in space? Is it to make believe being Holy in the future and worship?or another thought that I do not wish to mention....?
