Tick-Tock Tick-Tock 2012
Just like all the other 'end of the world' days previously predicted in the past - numerous other times religious sects have marked as 'the last days' foretold in holy writings. According to a Huffington Post article (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/12/20/apocalypse-predictions-182-other-days-world-supposed-to-end_n_2341088.html?ir=Comedy) there were 182 other 'end of the world' predictions.
Question is, why do people want the world as we know it to end?
Yes, there is unfairness, there is suffering, there is hunger, there is death, there is evil perpetrated by misguided and just plain cruel individuals and groups. And yes it is a wonderful flight of fancy to believe that something much better will replace what's here now. But imagining it does not make it true. No one knows what the hereafter holds for those who cross the threshold from life to death. No one has ever definitively returned to proclaim that a hereafter even exists, where the essence of a person continues on in a sentient state.
It's just crazy people killing other people. Belief doesn't matter. Motive doesn't matter. Reason doesn't matter. End result tells the moral. These murderers are just effing crazy.
