Mark the date!
It’s Monday morning. I sit quietly at the tube station watching the hustle and bustle going on around me. While waiting for my relations to show up, I decided it was a good time to put down what I was thinking about yesterday night.
Since the “date” is around the corner, I think I should pitch in my bit to stir up the pot a little.
Let’s start by what is known about the date 21-Dec-2012. The date ended a 5,000-year Mayan calendar. The Mayans were known to have accurately predicted several events that took place in history. The Mayans only indicated that something of great global impact will happen on 21-12-2012: not necessarily the destruction of the world.
Personally, I don’t believe the world will end on that day.
By now you are probably asking yourself “Where is the controversy he promised?”. If you belong to that group, I say “Patience. In a second you rumor monger :-)”
Stay with me now. Let’s go with the second scenario i.e., something “huge” happens but we still get to wake up the day after, and do whatever it was we had planned.
But wait a minute, what happened? You went to bed on the 21st and woke up on the 22nd. The wars in various parts of the world are still going on; the protesters didn’t miss a beat; and the most newsworthy item in the morning papers was the politician caught with his hands in the ministry’s cookie jar?
Glad you wondered, and here is where it starts to get interesting.
The “real” Anti-Christ will be born on the 21-Dec-2012. How do I know? Well, if you asked that question, I can only respond by asking you (like a true Nigerian – a question for a question), “I hope the cold that is freezing my face is not slowing down your brain?”. Fact is, I mentioned from the beginning I am just putting an alternative hypothesis out there: one with an equal chance of being true – just as any of the beliefs of the “Preppers” out there. If someone can believe some superior alien being is going to fly by the earth in an intergalactic space ship (“Beam me up Scotty!”) and whisk them away before the world is reduced to a burnt out pile of molten rock, we can give my proposition an equal chance of occurrence eh?
I am sure most people will agree with me that such an event (the Anti-Christ being born) has global significance.
So what has that got to do with the average Joe on the street, you may ask (or wonder)?
Well, if the Anti-Christ is alive, the end of this system of things can’t be far behind. But before you go selling all your property and putting it all on one final “around the world in 80 days” holiday, consider this: the fellow would still be a baby, and since the Devil’s precedence is to “fake” the originals created by the big “man” in the sky (the creator of all things), we shouldn’t expect to see any action from his “son” until the boy is at least 30 years old.
So barring something else killing you such as age, accident, disease or a localized meteor strike, that is some good news for sinners (which many of us are :-). That’s 30 additional years for people to get their sh*t together and choose (hopefully) the right side (before events make the decision for you).
Well, that’s enough bulls*it for one day.
And since everyone has (long since) taken to putting up all the mundane sh*t that happens to them online, here are a few from me. Besides this is an online diary so I can put up anything here right?
It’s not like I am twitting it or facebooking it, is it?
1. I got a new electric toothbrush.
2. I am expecting a scaler in the mail soon. I want to do some damage to the plaque (and hopefully not to my gum) before my next visit to the dentist.
3. I am bidding for some stuff on ebay.
4. I got on a scale this morning. The scale was accurate, but I didn’t agree with the figure on the digital display anyway. I think I am smarter than some digital thingsmadoogle whose “brain” is not bigger than my big toe and who can’t even speak to boot. So who you gonna believe – me or that immobile thing on the floor?
