Seriously, doesn't anyone care to notice all the egg on the faces of these "experts"? What do they have to say for themselves now that this date has come and gone without so much as a minor meteor shower, eclipse or volcanic burp? Why didn't the world end according to their fantastic doomsday prognostications of mega asteroids colliding with our planet, continent splitting super quakes that cause mountain swallowing tsunamis and world wide magma spewing eruptions burning what was left behind? Oh, I know why - because this whole thing was indeed a fantasy, one the Mayans never had in mind in the first place, that's why. The Mayan people should sue The History Channel and National Geographic for libel -- defamation of character. Where's Gloria Allred when you need her? It seems she will be unavailable to champion their cause since she is currently shooting her lack luster rated t.v. show that is loosely based on actual law. As hard as it may be to believe for some, this whole brouhaha was yet another money making scheme cooked up by some very unscrupulous people. There are those in this world who enjoy preying upon and profiting from other people's fears. For some obscure "experts", the glittery lure of a few fleeting moments of fame and fortune was too hard for them to resist, so they willfully jumped on board the doomsday boat, who in turn netted and took many for a fantastical ride. Their Mayan doomsday ride ended on December 22 with the trust and pride of many being filleted.
Honestly, why do so many of us fall for this kind of stuff? I think we all have an innate sense that this age will indeed come to an end, but since we don't know exactly when that time will occur, there are those who can't resist exploiting this fact, and exploit it they do. Can you name or count how many doomsday novels that have been penned and then eventually turned into t.v. and radio shows and major motion pictures in the last 100 years? I kid you not, we all know people who actually think that if something is in print or broadcasted on the radio, or scene on t.v., then it is completely truthful. Do you know there are those who think that "Opie Cunningham" is actually a real person, rather than acknowledging that Ron Howard is the actor who played the parts of Opie Taylor and Richie Cunningham? Do you realize, dear reader, that people in China, apparently consider Hollywood make believe to be gospel truth?
That cinematic fantasy known as "2012" was actually taken to heart by one too many in that nation, but are they alone? I doubt it, since more and more people all over the globe are voluntarily releasing their grasp of reality, and willfully making Tinseltown fantasy their "new reality". I wondered how many people actually committed suicide after hearing Orsen Wells' report that Martians had invaded earth on October 30, 1938, so I looked it up, because I remember hearing that is what happened. As it turns out, I can't find a single documented case where anyone committed suicide, only a lot of newspaper over exaggeration--surprise surprise. However, there were those who did leave their homes looking for refuge and those who were preparing for the invasion. And thankfully, I haven't heard or read about any suicides performed in mass cult fashion or otherwise that took place on December 21st --I'm sure the high functioning psychopaths that run the upper echelons of our society and propagate this kinda stuff are kinda disappointed once again.
Dear reader, I assure you, this world will not come to a cataclysmic end until certain key events take place first -- such as the great apostasy of the church, which will precede the revealing of the Anti-Christ - or the fake Christ. The Anti- or "fake" Christ will be a pseudo-peace giving world leader, who the apostates and most of the world will follow and pledge their allegiance to by taking his mark upon their right hand or forehead. Has any of this happened yet? No. So, any attempt or "educated" guess as to when the end of the world will happen, based on ancient texts or superstitions, is futile and down right flippant disregard toward God's word. Yes, the dates for these future and terrifying events are indeed set, but no man knows the exact day nor the hour of Christ's coming, much less the impending end of this age. So, once again, when some "expert" has the nerve to get up in front of the world and declare the day that the world will end, don't give that person a moment of your attention - they are either out right lying or they are sadly yet seriously misguided. Yes, the world, or this age rather, will come to an end, but not one second early or late--because God is always on time!
