Would you swim in Devil's Pool?
Victoria Falls, of Zambia and Zimbabwe
Mr. Jeff Jenkins provided me with these interesting clips. Thanks, Jeff. He writes many good articles with helpful information on apologetics.
This is Jeff's blog from my links:
The site is Devil's Pool in Victoria Falls, Zambia.
It appears this is a natural pool, and somehow when persons jump in the pool, they can manage to safely remain close to the edge of the pool without falling down Victoria Falls.
When I first saw the clips, I deduced that there were rocks preventing persons from falling from the Devil's Pool into the Victoria Falls.
Although certainly not for the faint of heart, swimming in the Devil's Pool is probably not as dangerous as it appears in the photographs. A natural rock ledge reduces the current and stops swimmers from being swept over the edge. As the email notes, the pool is only safe to use at times of the year when water levels are comparatively low. At other times when more water flows down the river, the ledge does not offer enough protection for swimmers and the pool is inaccessible.
The Victoria Falls is a waterfall situated in southern Africa between the countries of Zambia and Zimbabwe. From September to December, due to low water levels, it is possible to swim at the edge of the falls in a naturally formed safe pool, accessed via Livingstone Island.
I would possibly with local guidance, take a dip in this Devil's Pool. With God's help, I will not dive into the Devil's pool of life. If something goes wrong in this Zambian Pool, one could die in Victoria Falls...a kind of classy way to die I suppose. But, if one is involved with the works of Satan, God shall punish, outside of the grace of God saving one from everlasting punishment. Jesus states in Luke 12: 4-5 that a person should not fear one who can kill the body, but fear God who can cast one into hell. I do not want to be the Devil's fool.
Is this elephant related to Bob Ross? Thanks to Mom, for the clip.
