Hi -or shall I say farewell- everyone.
The world is ending today so I guess this is my last entry. As I wait for the apocalypse sitting in my balcony readying my camera for some amazing shots -I won’t be able to post them on Facebook, sorry- I can’t stop thinking about the things I still have to do.
I ran out of coffee yesterday and I promised my girl that I was gonna go shopping today, but what for. I have a couple of beers left, that should suffice to watch the show before my Lager starts boiling.
During times like these I start thinking about all the unchecked items on my bucket list, the unneeded political cost, money and resources spent by the US to take down Bin Laden weeks before his scheduled well deserved trip to Hell and human stupidity. But right after thinking about the latter item I remind myself that we are just evolved apes who wield gadgets instead of sticks so there’s plenty of room for irrational thinking.
This time, it seems that Christ is coming back for real. Math says that.
Yup. it’s amazing to what extent we can stretch logic and imagination to fit our wildest ideas.
What strikes me the most, and I remember thinking this same thing the last time the world ended, is how appealing the idea of the Apocalypse is. No wonder why we like scatological and apocalyptic movies so much. Freud’s thanatos at its best.
Being a survivor of at least 3 ends of the world one starts wondering why people keep believing this kind of stuff. The last time I recall, the prophecy at least came from a more reputable source.
Time magazine has covered the impending Apocalypse from a psychological standpoint, delving into the minds of those who claim the end is nigh and why they will come out strengthened and start figuring out when the next end of days is gonna be. I highly recommend this reading, if there’s still time.
So if tomorrow after the Rapture you wake up and don’t find yourself either in Heaven or in a scorched and barren Earth, don’t despair. Jesus is coming back again for whoever’s left from this Armageddon on December 2012.
See you on the other side.
Edit 5/22/11: if Jesus didn’t pay you a visit yesterday and you are reading this, I got really bad news for you. We were not picked in the draft to play for heaven next season. There are two explanations for this:
- There are 6 billion souls who don’t deserve heaven
- The rapture did happen but there ‘s only a handful of worthy souls so most of us haven’t noticed
Either way, brace for a very difficult year as the world begins to fall apart.
