"the End Of The World's A-comin'!"

That's what one lady on the bus was talking about. She was talking to the bus driver about her four kids that she raised and then talked about how two of them have children. She went on to say that two of her boys don't have kids and that she told them to never have them because everything's going to get worse. The bus driver asked what she meant by that and she started talking about the apocalypse. It was so unbelievable. I had to bite my tongue hard so I wouldn't laugh or say anything. I was thinking about pulling out my copy of The God Delusion that I had in my bag and keeping the title visible as I read it when she said that, but I just sat there laughing to myself. She talked about how she was working on going back to school, so I figured she was a good person, just misguided. I can't WAIT to move to a place without rabid xians on fire for the lord everywhere I go. It makes me sick. I was reading The God Delusion while standing at the bus stop waiting to go back home and I think someone made a comment while passing me. I couldn't hear what the woman said, though. I am done with the bible belt forever.

Oh come on...we all know the world is going to end Dec 21, 2012. So, I'm just going to party like it's 1999 in the meantime. 3 more years ain't too bad. Hmm, so does that mean we're in the tribulation now?

 

If all this sounded stupid...I'm sorry; Just in a goofy mood after the work day :)

My mother is famous for saying "you didn't hear about that kind of stuff back when."

No, mom, we didn't have 24 hour satellite broadcasts and internet and cell phone back when. Same shit, different day.

She did say that we were in the end times. She spouted off pretty much every conspiracy theory out there. It was really quite pathetic.

"Join the rank of millions of Christians who, since the very conception of your religion, has claimed the end of the world is neigh. Did you know, that the people actually worried that the year 666 was going to to be the end, well that and every year preceeding and succeding it."

LOL. I love the Nibiru conspiracy stories and the reptilian invasion on 12/21/12 better than Than the Beast and armageddon story although I admit that Damian in Omen 2 kicks ass. :)

People have been predicting the end of the world almost as long as it's been around. And not just the christians. I forget the details, but I've heard that waaay back around 400 bc, some Assyrians thought the End of The World was right around the corner.

Exactly. It's not more stuff happening, it's just more ways of telling us what's happening.

I don't >_<. At least there's lots of stuff in the Bible to be (mis)interpreted. As far as I can tell all the 2012 people have is that the Mayans quit counting (and apparently 2012 isn't even technically the end of this particular cycle of their calendar). If I had to carve my calendar in stone or paint it on a precious commodity I think I'd quit somewhere too. I suppose too that people modernizing an ancient religion they don't really understand or care to follow faithfully just bugs me a lot. As if we know any better now (science not included) than the original practitioners did.

Kinda funny how she's gonna invest in an education even though the world is about to end.

 

Does that mean that she really doesn't believe it? Or just hedging her bet?

I wondered about that, too. I don't know. I don't think anyone took her seriously and the bus driver didn't really say much about it. It would make sense to me to get a decent job while you still can, but she said that she was also working to be able to have things for her sons and grandchildren, so that doesn't make sense, either. People like that just don't think at all. I could've torn all of her arguments to the ground, and I was thinking about what I would say in my mind, and she even admitted that it was "just what she was always taught." *sigh* Can't argue with that "logic".

There's a surprising number of people thinking the recession will be the end of the U.S., too.

 

Not exactly the end of the world.

 

Meh...times will get better eventually. It's all cyclical.
