Here is an absolute sign from God: The Hiroshima 8 Survivors

His hand of protection and his affirmation of Fatima

Evidence:"During the Second World War atomic bombs were dropped on two
  Japanese cities: Hiroshima and Nagasaki. An extraordinary thing happened at both sites.
-A unique group of men survived a nuclear blast that killed nearly all other people even at over ten times further from the blast.
      Absolutely unexplainable by scientific means.
-The group was unique, singled out: Catholic clergy living the message of Fatima
-It was reproducible.  It happened twice: Hiroshima and Nagasaki.  Both sets of survivors were Catholic religious.
-Most other buildings were leveled to the ground, even at maybe 3 times the distance,  but their house stood (apparently with some windows intact!)
-All other people (except for a handful of scattered sole survivors), even at 3 times the distance from the explosion died instantly.  Those within a radius TEN times the distance at which the Jesuits were exposed died from radiation within days.
-The survivors, a group of Catholic clergy, were examined by scientists over 200 times over the next 30 years with no ill effects found.
 

 THE EVENT:
 In Hiroshima, a small  community of Jesuit Fathers lived in a church
 house near the parish church, situated only eight blocks from the
 center of the bomb blast.

 When Hiroshima was destroyed by the atomic bomb,
 all eight members of the small Jesuit community escaped unscathed,
  while every other person who was within a radius of roughly one and a
  half kilometers from the center of the explosion died immediately. The
 church house where the Jesuits lived was still standing, while the
 buildings in  every direction from it were leveled. (This coincides with the
bombing  of Nagasaki where St. Maximilian Kolbe had established a
 Franciscan Friary which  was also unharmed and also had no effects from
 The Nagasaki bomb.)
 

 Testimony of a survivor:
 Father Hubert Shiffer was one of these eight Jesuit survivors. He
 was 30 when the atomic bomb exploded at Hiroshima and lived
  another 33 years in good health. He recounted his experiences at
 Hiroshima during the Eucharistic  Congress held in Philadelphia (USA)
 in 1976. At that time, all eight members  of the Jesuit community were
 still alive.
 Fr. Shiffer, on the morning of August 6, 1945, he had just
 finished  Mass, went into the rectory and sat down at the breakfast
 table, and had  just sliced a grapefruit, and had just put his spoon
 into the grapefruit  when there was a bright flash of light. His first
thought was that it was an explosion in the harbor (this was a major
 port where the Japanese refueled their submarines.)

 Then, in the words of Fr. Schiffer: "Suddenly, a terrific explosion
 filled the air with one bursting thunderstroke. An invisible force
 lifted me from the chair, hurled me through the air, shook me,
 battered me, whirled me 'round and  round like a leaf in a gust of
 autumn wind." The next thing he remembered, he opened his eyes and he
  was laying on the ground. He looked around and there was NOTHING
  in any direction: the railroad station and buildings in all directions
 were leveled to the ground.
 The only physical harm to himself was that he could feel a few
  pieces of glass in the back of his neck. As far as he could tell,
 there was nothing else physically wrong with himself.  After the
conquest of the Americans, their
 army doctors and scientists explained to him that his body
 would begin to deteriorate because of the radiation. To the doctors
 amazement, Fr. Schiffer's body contained no radiation or ill-effects
 from the bomb.

  Conclusion: There are no physical laws to explain why the
 Jesuits were untouched in the Hiroshima airblast. There is no other
 actual or test data where a structure such as this was not totally
 destroyed at this standoff distance by an atomic weapon. All who were
 at this range from the epicenter should have received enough radiation
 to be dead within at most a matter of minutes if nothing else happened
 to them. There is no known way to design a uranium-235 atomic bomb,
 which could leave such a large discrete area intact while destroying
 everything around it immediately outside the fireball (by shaping the
plasma).

 Not only did they all survive with (at most) relatively
 minor injuries, but they all lived well past that awful day
 with no radiation sickness, no loss of hearing, or any other visible
 long term defects or maladies. Naturally, they were interviewed
 numerous  times (Fr. Schiffer said over 200 times) by scientists and
 health care people about their remarkable experience.  The eight
 Jesuits  say "we believe that we survived because we were living the
 message of Fatima.  We lived and prayed the rosary daily in that home."
 Fr. Shiffer feels that he received a protective shield from the Blessed
 Mother which protected him from all radiation and ill-effects.
 Fr.  Schiffer attributes this to devotion to the Blessed Mother, and his
 daily Fatima Rosary; "in that house the Holy Rosary was recited
together every day."
 Of course the secular  scientists are speechless and incredulous
 at  this explanation - and they are sure there is some "real"
 explanation  - but at the same time over 50 years later the scientists
 are still absolutely bamboozled when it comes to finding a plausible
 scenario to explain the missionary's unique escape from the hellish
 power of that bomb. From a scientific viewpoint, what happened to those
 Jesuits at  Hiroshima still defies all human logic from the laws of
 physics as understood today (or at any time in the future). It must be
 concluded that  some other (external) force was present whose power
 and/or capability to transform energy and matter as it relates to
 humans is beyond  current comprehension; a plausibility argument for
 the existence of a Creator who left his "calling card" at Hiroshima.



Jesuit Priests Survive Atomic Bomb
Speaking on American TV, the German Jesuit Father Hubert Shiffner gave the startling answer:
 "In that house, the Rosary was prayed every day. In that house we
  were living the Message of Fatima," he said.
 How does one live the Fatima message?
 1. People must first CONVERT: turn away from sin and go back to God.
 This entails the usual demands of the Christian life like prayer,
reading Scripture, obedience to the commandments, concern for others.
 Beyond it there are special requests from the Blessed Virgin:
 2. DAILY OFFERING. "Offer up each day whatever God requests of
 you... for the conversion of sinners and reparation for sin."
 3. REPARATION. "Pray, fast, and make sacrifices for your sins and for
  the sins of all sinners and unbelievers."
 4. EUCHARIST. Frequent prayer, adoration and reparation before Jesus
  in the Blessed Sacrament.
 5. FIVE FIRST SATURDAYS. "Confess, offer Mass, receive Holy
 Communion on the First Saturday of five consecutive months... with the
  intention of making reparation to me..."
 6. ROSARY. "Each day recite the prayers of the rosary, five decades
 at least -- meditating on the mysteries -- to make reparation for
 sin."
7. CONSECRATION. Consecrate yourself to the Sacred heart of Jesus
and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. This means entrusting yourself to
 their care and protection. Wear the brown scapular as a sign.


What follows is Dr. Stephen Rinehart's commentary on the
 subject of the Hiroshima atomic bomb blast.  Within the U.S.
 Department of Defense Stephen Rinehart is widely recognized as
 international expert in this field.


 Rinehart's Testimony: A quick calculation says at 1 kilometer the bulk
 temperature was in excess of 20,000 to 30,000 degrees F
 (transients in microseconds greater than 100,000F perhaps as high as
1,000,000 F  within 1 kilometer - depends on construction details and
 you are inside the fireball) and the blast wave would have hit at sonic
 velocity with pressures on building (at one kilometer) greater than 600
 psi. If the Jesuits (at one kilometer from the geometric epicenter)
 were  outside the atomic bomb's "plasma" their residence should
  still have been utterly destroyed (temp > 2000 F and airblast
 pressures > 100 psi).
 Unreinforced masonry or brick walls (representative of
 commercial construction) are destroyed at 3 psi, which will
 also cause ear damage and burst windows. At ten psi, a human will
  experience severe lung and heart damage, burst eardrums and at 20 psi
  your limbs can be blown off. Your head will be blown off by 40 psi
 and no human would be alive because your skull would be crushed.
 All the cotton clothes would be on fire at 350 F and
your lungs would be inoperative within a minute breathing air (even for
 a few seconds) at these temperatures. No way any human could have
  survived nor should anything have left been standing at one kilometer.

 At ten times the distance, about ten to
 fifteen kilometers I saw the brick walls standing from an
 elementary school school and I think there were a few badly burned
 survivors; all died within fifteen years of some form of cancer).
(Examining pictures taken from a panoramic view from epicenter of the
 blast at Shima Hospital looking for the Jesuitís house) did show some kind of two story house totally
 intact (at least from what I could make out and it looked to me the windows were in place!?). Also
there was a church with walls still standing but roof gone a few hundred yards away!?
 The Department of Defense never commented officially on this
and I suspect it was classified and never discussed in open literature.
 I think it is possible the Jesuits were asked not to say anything either at the time.
 

Biblical Precedent:
Dan 3:19  Then Nebuchadnez'zar was full of fury, and the expression of his face was changed against Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed'nego. He ordered the furnace heated seven times more than it was wont to be heated.
Dan 3:20  And he ordered certain mighty men of his army to bind Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed'nego, and to cast them into the burning fiery furnace.
Dan 3:21  Then these men were bound in their mantles, their tunics, their hats, and their other garments, and they were cast into the burning fiery furnace.
Dan 3:22  Because the king's order was strict and the furnace very hot, the flame of the fire slew those men who took up Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed'nego.
Dan 3:23  And these three men, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed'nego, fell bound into the burning fiery furnace.
(3:24) And they walked about in the midst of the flames, singing hymns to God and blessing the Lord.
