Speaking of doomsday, did you know we’re living in the end times? Yeah, I know, we’ve been living in the end times during the fall of Rome, the Dark Ages, Black Death and an invasion into Spain by Muslims as well as both world wars and the Cold War. But all the disasters, wars and epidemics are nothing compared to now. The end is almost here as it’s written in the Book of Revelations. Unlike the Mayan prophecy of 2012, the belief that we are the last generation on Earth isn’t just embraced by New Age enthusiasts. It’s being taught to millions of Christians and held by very respected authority figures in mainstream society.

In my deluded, semi-cult teenage past, when I avidly read the works of Herbert W. Armstrong and the Worldwide Church of God (in the 60s), it was pretty convincing to me that we were in the end times already as predicted by revelations.

As it turned out, we got past that stage. Really, the book of Revelations is a kind of Rorschach test - we see in it things from our own psyches. Add to that the Koran, various mystics, the Mayan calendar, Nostradamus - Apocalypse is a popular theme. People love to get scared (witness Y2K).

What gets me is how close the religious fanatics are, to making it all into a self-fulfilling prophesy. Nearly half of the country was willing to let crazy fundimaniac Palin get next to the presidency, after Bush and his cronies & followers did their best to push us closer to the edge. Meanwhile, Pakistan has the bomb and Iran wants it; probably Israel too.

I hope that the pendulum is swinging in the other direction now, with a move to rationality. We'll see.
