What does the Bible say about Wormwood?

Posted by Star on Dec 2nd 2021

The Bible depicts Wormwood in an apocalyptic way. In Revelations "The name of the star was Wormwood. It made one-third of the water bitter, and many people died from drinking the bitter water." Star's in the Bible after often symbolic of angels. Angels can be either godly or fallen angels.. The actual plant is named after the Greek goddess Artemis. This is very interesting because it indicates the scientist who named the plant knew, or perhaps by divine intervention, symbolically the meaning came through... I don't know man. One has to wonder, when was the name given to the botanical "Wormwood", and why? At any rate, upon doing research on its ethnobotany, I believe it has mostly darkness attached to it, and have deemed it on my do not consume or mess with list. I personally detest it, and think it's a nasty weed. This isn't to say that I don't believe in beneficial plants, obviously I do. Wormwood however, has nothing holy attached to it, short to say that it provides air out of CO2, but that's about it. No insult intended to the most high, but surely he knows what this weed represents.
