The end of the world?

This is an interesting article.

Many of us are fully aware of certain religious fundimentalists proclaiming the end times or Armageddon will occur soon, the Antichrist will reveal himself, and the final battle for humanty will usher in the second coming of Jesus Christ. I happened to stumbled on to the list of "failed Armageddons" and the number of enlightened people who made various claims.

Enlightened, Schmenlightened.
To pretend to predict is nothing but playing psychic, hardly a most reliable method.

that was hilarious
but they only have to be right one time.

the thing I dont get about some of the doomsady Christians is that the book of Revelation will tell you straight up "it's going to surprise everybody" (paraphrase of course).

I hold on to my faith with reservations these days.
It's hard and I wish it weren't so. I have a bigger lack of faith in humanity that anything.
But I think I can chalk up 100% of the absurdity and false grandeur to man, and his willingness to make a buck, to become famous or otherwise. Another reason I think, if the whole Biblical perspective has validity then I think these people are nuts by default. It's hard to make a corporation out of Jesus' teachings all by itself. Gotta have some Leviticus "selling" points, among others.

The only explanation/reason I accept is scientific.

I asked bono and he told me he's 'definitely not' the antichrist. So, I dunno.

Fuck, I've always heard that the antichrist is and was ME....

And the only explanation for the end of the world for me, is scientific too. So does that make me a questioning Christian?

Something created this universe right?
