What with all the hoopla about the end of the world, I've gotten side-tracked on facebook today and have very little time left to blog! There were a few posts that I just had to comment on, and a few links that I had to look up! What can I say? I'm easily distracted...
So... now there is only about an hour and a half to go, at least here in the Central time zone. This won't even give my readers enough time to read and comment on my blog...oh boy...my bad!
Whew...I'm so glad to know that most of the people I know don't get sucked into this garbage. It's actually kind of sad when you realize how many people do though. I was looking online at a site called International Business Times at an article called, "Doomsday: Is it May 21, 2011?" And they did a poll asking that very question. The multiple choice answers were: Yes / Maybe /No / It's December 21, 2012. I could not believe the results!!
3.17% said YES (580 votes)
8.97% said Maybe (1,544votes)
78.26% said No (14,338votes)
9.61% said it's 12-21-12 (1,760votes)
The total number of voters at this point in time were: 18,322.
I'm glad to see that the majority do not believe this nonsense, but seriously? There are 3,884 people who actually believe that someone can predict this date!?! And that was just this one poll...Wow. It's so true about people being exactly like sheep. It doesn't take much to lead them around, even when the scenario is completely ridiculous.
I won't go into great detail as to why I personally do not believe this junk, but in all seriousness, I do believe there will come a time when this earth will end. (at least in the way we know it now) And I also believe that some day the Lord will return for His people. But please, I beg of you, do not throw me into the same category with these idiotic sheep-like people who follow those who are blatantly in error...please! If they took the time to read their Bibles, they'd know the truth.
The ancient Mayans supposedly predicted the end of the world too. They did build some pretty cool cities and buildings for their time. But just because their calendar ended in December of 2012 doesn't necessarily mean the world has to come to an end then either. There could be any number of reasons why they did not continue the calendar beyond December of 2012. If you scroll down past this beautiful picture of a Mayan ruin, you'll see what I think actually did happen!
And that's all I have to say on this subject.
Thanks for reading...and I'll see you next week!
