The end is near!

In thought on June 13, 2013 at 5:17 PM

If you’ve been alive long enough, you’ve probably seen the guy with the sandwich board, or standing there quoting the Bible proclaiming “The end is near! The end is near!” Well, dear readers let’s take a trip through history and examine the other liars who’ve made the same proclamation. You may need a calendar for this trip. I’ll wait. Got one? Good.

Saint Malachy said after the reign of the 112th Pope, the world all end, and the new Pope (somehow able to save the world from ending) will be named Peter The Roman and be an Italian. Wrong. The new Pope is not Italian, nor named Peter!
Sir Issac Newton said the world will end in 2060, but some scholars say he calculated the start of the Holy Roman Empire wrong, and the world will end in 2012. Check your calendar now.
The Mayans believed the world would end December 12 2012, well… Many moroons bought into that theory, and we are all still here…
A computer program called “Web Bot” predicted the end of the world would fall on December 31 2012. New Year’s Eve, or day, depending on the time zone in which you live. Well my calendar says June 2013, and unless there is something your not telling me, then there is another reason not to trust nut jobs and their doomsday prophecies.
Most of us will remember the fiasco known as Y2K. You remember, right? Computers will shut down, all the airplanes would fall from the sky, all the worlds nukes would launch and turn us into charred piles of ash. I personally knew people who bought into this theory. They stockpiled water, and cans of every food that could be canned. Well for months afterward, they didn’t have to buy anything to eat. Not to mention that people tried going underground to escape the world exploding. Now, I don’t know much about explosions, but I’m pretty sure you’d want to be far away from the epicenter, right.
Then there was the minister who said it would end in May around the 21st. When that day didn’t happen, he said he Mister calculated and it would end in December. I believe that he had to go back to radio to escape the scrutiny of the sane folks who said he wwas a moron.

In case you missed it, it is June 2013 and NONE OF THE PREDICTIONS EVER CAME TRUE! What does that teach us? Well, if you believe the scientists, then we’ve got a few billion years before the sun burns out it’s heat, IR we’ve got no idea when that asteroid will plow inti the world the way it did when it wiped out the dinosaurs. So, the answer is, we just don’t know when the world will in fact end. Maybe the Christians are right, and Christ will come back and condemn us for whatever reason. Maybe we will be here forever, just go on living and exploring to the farthest reaches of space, and maybe colonizing other planets, or even other universes.

In closing, just let me say, don’t believe the crazy hobos or the crazy guys with the Bibles who scream about the coming doom. Go on living, and if the world ends, it ends; nothing we can do about it. Just hug your loved ones, and be kind to one another.
