Another 'End of The World'... Sigh

July 15, 2017

Hey Chicken Little, watch out for the legacies of Harold Camping and the Seventh Day Adventists because the end is nigh once again.

Set your party date for September 23, 2017!!!!

Again the crazies have come out of hiding and are lining up to prophesize about yet another end of the world date. Using their Goat Herder’s Instruction Manual (Bible) they found some made up nonsense that just proves to them that the end is real soon now - just as the Seventh Day Adventists have done on many occasions using their Goat Herder’s Instruction Manual to predict their own end of the world date(s)(s)(…), and oh when was that, yeah, Oct 22, 1844 which I bet was a great disappointment to all involved, but alas they too are still around hoping it will still end any day now.

This time though it is not enough to simply base some crazy idea on the analysis of the herders manual looking at the third word of the second line leading to the seventh thingy over the thirty second whatchamacallzit. Oh no. This time it must be true because the made up whatchamacallzit LSD induced Goat ramblings now correlate with ancient Babylonian zodiac nonsense. If one ancient made up text from a time that taking a dump could lead to mass disease breakouts is so wonderful, then why not include another ancient set of wisdoms that pretended stars were ancient beings battling up in the heavens just to make it that much better.

That’s right - the bunk behind astrology is now backing the bunk behind the bible.

I am totally perplexed as to how this has come about. From a made up belief system that just dumps on all the others for being fraudulent and misleading, it now bases another of its gloom and doom scenarios on the very basis of one of the belief systems it so admonishes. That’s a little like Judaism claiming that Mohammed will return as their Messiah riding on the back of Buddah, which would be entertaining to see, but still a lot of nonsense.

I was at first just going to dismiss this new chapter of medication-free living as I have written numerous times about many other similar such incidents (all bow to Harold Camping) as well as many others (who could forget the end of the world so many times over and over again in September 2015), but then I used Google…..

You might think that this craziness is irrelevant, but check out the over 10 million hits on Google when searching for ‘Sept 23, 2017 revelations’

The results show a litany of mental health issues, delusions and crackpot beliefs. From Wikipedia’s page on Sept 23:

The Revelation 12 Sign is an apocalyptic belief promoted by a number of Christian ministers and news organizations, which states that a literal fulfillment of the prophecy given in Revelation 12:1-2[1] will occur on September 23, 2017. This passage of Scripture in the Christian Bible describes “a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth.”

So once again I put forth yet another countdown clock to the end of the world:


and

Sigh.
