IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT...!

IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT...!

Have you been to Confession lately, all you Catholics? According to a prophecy of St. Malachy around 1139, there would be only 112 more popes after that time. Pope Benedict XVI is number 111. That means that judgment day is nigh.

Right now, I'm just adding that to the already scary understanding the Mayans had that the world will end on December 21, 2012.

But there are many more possibilities out there. If you want to check up on them, I'd recommend a visit to armageddononline.org, where they seem to have everything nicely organized. So, whether you're worried about the asteroid that will just miss Earth in 2029 (or so the authorities claim), or the nut with the nukes in North Korea, you can spend a few minutes staring at the end of it all and contemplating whether you really think cheating on your taxes or your spouse is a good thing or a bad thing.

I am so sick of the obsession with "End Times" prophecy. Is there not something twisted about the fact that the very same people who lecture us on the "the culture of death versus the culture of life" --with their side presumably representing the latter-- sit around in giddy anticipation of an event that will result in the agonizing suffering and death of millions? What does it say about these so-called supporters of life who get a bigger hard-on over the Book of Revelations (whose specious origins originally almost prevented its inclusion in the bible) while ignoring Jesus' teachings about the corruption of wealth and the need to take care of the poor?

You know what I loved about the Armaggedon site you linked to? The sponsor ads. Like "Safe Room & Personal Biosecurity Products" and "Exhaust Flame Throwers" are going to help anyone with the Meteors, Monster Tsunamis, and nuclear warheads that are predicted to be hurtling our way elsewhere on the same page.
