I am sure I am not the only one to make this connection. Interesting enough that birds and sea creatures are being reported online in masses this past week. One aspect to Witchcraft, not Wicca, I'm talking about is Satanic Ritual stuff; the birds of the air and sea creatures die when life is extracted into resurrected beings.
As simply as it can be said, the witch/magick agenda now is animating new beings like cloned humans receiving a life force. This life force is taken from the creatures of the earth. Easiest life force to remove are fish and birds. Egyptians knew this as well as ancient Babylonians. Technology has assisted in this campaign. Since God ushers life into us, artificial animation draws from another source. Life force from sea creatures and birds.
