If You Build It, They Will Come.

It's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine.

I'm watching the christian channel. GodTV. Jesusvision.

Apparently the end times are here.

In the bible it says that Paul said that Jesus said that the signs that the end times are upon us are that the church will stray from the truth and there will be false idols and false Christs. There would be wars, and rumors of wars. There would be earthquakes and storms and wacky weather. There would be racial wars, there would be national wars. There would be plagues. And all this stuff would happen back to back.

But it's not the end of the world, just the end of the age of the church. The dawning of the age of aquarius.

What is supposed to happen after the end times, is that Jesus takes up all the people who are good, and then the anti-christ is in charge of the world. He make a peace traty with Israel, then goes back on it and makes a statue of himself in the temple. Then Jesus comes back down and whoops his ass, and then goes and kicks Satan's ass, and throws them into the lake of fire. And then he starts a kingdom on earth and judges everyone, and then reigns over it for a thousand years. And then Satan comes back, and Jesus kicks his ass again, and then I don't know what happens after that. It's not the end of the world, it's called the Tribulation.

So this guy on TV says that all that stuff to precede the Tribulation has already happened. We had lots of wars in the 20th century, there's the bird flu, there's been earthquakes, and hurricanes, there was David Koresh and the Heaven's Gate guy who were false Christs, and there's racial fighting all the time. Clearly Jesus will be coming back in the next few weeks or so.

Look busy.

This is why I don't buy into organized religion. All it does is display fear tactics trying to scare people and stray from the real message.

What I always wonder is why is the message always so centralized on America? He mentioned all the wars we've had in the 20th century... WWI, WWII, Vietnam, Korea, Iraq I, Iraq II (technically 21st century). What about other countries wars? We're not the only ones who are invited to war. France and England fought for years and years. Japan, Russia, they've had wars. Look at South America, Africa, there's wars and ethnic fighting that's been going on there for centuries.

Also, what if all this already happened. I mean, truth could've fallen out of the church 1,700 years ago, meaning that what we're reading is entirely untrue. It's proven that parts of the bible have been intentionally left out and omitted so that the general public cannot read them. Why would that happen?

All religious conspiracies aside, the end of the world has been coming for almost 2000 years. Stop trying to be so scary.

  • I wrote about this a LONG time ago.

    December 21 or 22, 2012 is the day you're thinking of.

    The reason is because the Mayans developed a calendar a long long freakin time ago without any scientific instruments. A calendar that is extremely and surprisingly still very very accurate today.

    Some people speculate that it wasn't actually a calendar, but a countdown, because the last day on it is Dec. 22, 2012. Some people conclude that this is in fact, the end of the world.

    Freaky.
