Well, what a surprise. It’s the Mayan day of apocolypse and we are still here. Still there are some that are citing that it’s still coming, to be invaded by saucers over the remaining temples that the sun shines on at the exact point of the equinox, as well as other crazy ideas that are floating around, as of 5.30am UK time, we are told that we have just 6 hours left.
As I and lots of others expected, it goes down in the long list of stupid predictions foretelling the end of days.
It kind of takes me back to last year with the prophecies that Harold Camping came out with, first stating that the rapture would come on May 21st 2011, with earthquakes and related fire and brimstone god bothering balloney. The earth would apparently shift its axis, and pretty much destroy humanity, taking 3% population to heaven….but on the 22nd, nothing happened.
When this date came, he retracted what he’d said and “rescheduled” it for October 21st 2011, which of course never happened either. Quick to escape from the shame of being a total lying douche, he retired from the prophecy business to study the bible better (Apparently he had a stroke, what he was stroking is up for issue, it seemed like he had been stroking his ego for years, I fear it was more like stroking his cock as clearly he was a wanker!)
Humanity has a primordial fear deep inside them, this comes out as a strange self hate that almost begs the question if we all have a inner self destruct button, each one of us secretly praying for the end of days. Just take a look back at the countless foretelling of earths destruction. Sure, the world will end one day, when the sun swallows us whole in a great red giant, but by that time if humanity survives to that point, we will probably have developed the technology to escape of planets fate and find new places to infest in true Star Trek style (Lets hope the fashion will not be as crap)
I’m also sure that the many people here all over the UK suffering from severe flash flooding today, I’m sure that they feel as if a biblical flood has been visited on them on this auspicious day, plus countless others around the world who are really suffering in natural disasters, famines and wars, but hey lets have our press and media focus on this total crap “Mayan Apocolypse” prediction to make us all feel even worse about what it means to be human and living here on earth.
I’m no christian, and I feel that again the old establishment is trying to derail what is potentially a quite hopeful start for our future, after all it’s the equinox, or “Yule” to us paganistic types, the original celebration of the winter and end of the year until the brainwashed god botherers warped it to include biblical rubbish for our pagan ancestors.
Yule is the real basis of Xmas, nothing to do with baby jesus and donkeys, even good old Father Crimbo has more of a basis as an original (The bearded one bears resembelance to the winter king of old), Yes my friends, your Xmas may well be more ungodly than you imagine!
This day should be time for celebration in a world of economic uncertainty, wars and suffering, not fervently bead jiggling and praying for salvation from Nibiru! The fact that this cycle of the Mayan calendar runs out should be cause to look ahead to the start of a new cycle. Not our end.
Happy Mayan Apocolypse day all!!
Oh and happy Yule too!!
