In re: the question in the thread title....

No.

I guess if you're looking for the actual words "nuclear weapons" you could say that.  If you believe John, Daniel , Ezekial, et al, described things they had no knowledge of in the best manner they could, then the answer could be "yes".
Using that reasoning, the Bible could predict toasters. "Could" does not equate to "does."

Your point?

The answer to the question, "does the Bible predict nuclear weapons" isn't "it might."

So, you're saying that nothing in the bible says anything about the effects of nuclear weapons, named or unnamed?

Primarily I'm saying it can't be demonstrated that it does. I have no reason to believe that it does.

So then, how do you think GOD is going to reduice the earth to a desert to root out sinners from it ? - Personally I think it will be the result of a prolonged "Nuclear Winter", Darkness, - no sunlight for photosynthesis, - nothing grows. You think it will be a miracle of some sort ?
I don't need to know how it will happen (assuming it will), nor do I believe anyone does. I suppose He could simply think "heat and flame" and melt the entire project. No bombs, no missiles, no nuttin.

You are wrong Mr. Roberson, VERY wrong, moreover you will live long enough to find out just HOW WRONG you are.
If you say so.

I've read the passages; have heard the theories.

Reading back into Scripture, trying to figure out what it means from our perspective is a questionable form of exegesis to say the least.

The descriptions could just as easily be creatures used by an apocalytic writer to make his point. They need not have been tanks or nuclear weapons. Did the cities of the plain get destroyed by nuclear weapons or smart bombs? Reads like it to me.

I see, you think it was some kind of fluke that the description just happens to fit tanks very well indeed. And no doubt you think it is another fluke that the Bible says that birds, (which are descended from the dinosaurs and did precede animals and man upon the earth), came before animals and man. And no doubt you think it is another fluke that the Bible says GOD fashioned Adam from the dust of the earth, and scientists have found that Montmorillonite clay is a powerful catalyst for combining animo acids into longer chain molecules resembling proteins.
What? Does this nuclear weapon theory mean so much to you that you post this? Geez.

If by the cities of the plain you mean Sodom and Gomorrah, the answer is yes; they did; probably suitcase nuke there.
Time travel, no doubt.

Time travel : That does seem to be within the realm of GOD'S capabilities. The foreknowledge of the future demonstrated within the Bible is suggestive of that. Though it might be achieved by other means.

Re the "Nuclear Weapons Theory", I think it VERY important. The Bible tells us to get out of Babylon before it is destroyed. I believe the destruction will take the form of a nuclear war, and I view it as very important to understand that, and if at all possible, do as the Bible tells us to do. There will be only two ways to survive said destruction. One will be to emigrate to Israel; the other will be to establish a residence somewhere other than "Babylon or Chaldea", and stockpile food, water, and heating fuel in that residence sufficient to last through the period of "Nuclear Winter".
Yes, you likely do think it is VERY important. I think it's fantasy.

What are the locusts and the two hundred million troops?

After the fifth and sixth angels sound their trumpets the rest of mankind not killed by these plagues  still did not repent of the work of their hands…….(9:20).

The locust of the fifth trumpet are released from the Abyss, they torture those who do not have the seal of God for five months. The locust are demons from the Abyss, a prison for fallen angels and demons.

While the Abyss is still unlocked, the four angels bound at the Euphrates River and their troops kill 1/3 of mankind (15-16). Out of the mouths of the troops came the three plagues of fire, smoke and fire (18).

The two hundred troops are not tanks or the kings from the east (16:12), they are the second plague released from the Abyss. These plagues occur near the end of the great tribulation while the nuclear holocaust is at the beginning of it.

Those commanded to flee from Babylon to avoid the destruction and plagues are God’s people, the Israelites (Jer 50:8; 51:6, 45).
