The signs

People are sulking around me these days, the news and the speculations with all the protesting that is happening around us is bringing everyone’s spirits down. Some of the people on my facebook friends list post the most ridiculous thoughts and theories and they really appear with no knowledge in politics, real life, religion… you name it. I keep them on my friends list for my entertainment (I know, I’m awful). But the last straw that glided and hit me in the eye while I was reading their posts is how many of them, and even before all the protests have started, think that all these… (( Bad things))… are signs of the apocalypse.

They think that our era is the one that is suffering the most, evil is really now around us. I hate it when people adjust events to make them more than what they are. I’m sure through history those people thought the same way and honestly, they were more entitled to think that way. I’m sure the shock of burning 6 million people because of their faith in the world war was a sign… holocaust should be a sign, right? When a nuclear bomb hit two cities in Japan that could have been interpreted as a very obvious sign that the world will end in the couple of years to come. Now people may see a natural disaster and they will think ‘This is one of the minor signs of the apocalypse’.

I say the moment will happen when it happens, no need to waste our lives and worries over this. When our time comes it won’t be because the last week have rained more than usual. So please live your lives as immortals, and cherish your beloved ones as if tomorrow you’ll die.

And now, I leave you with a little something to smile about.

  1. Bravo!!! Thank you so much for your post. I too am getting sick of all these end of the world junkies. Year after year since 2000 that is all we hear. Each year it is the last. What pisses me off is that most of these people are religious zealouts desperate for a way out – a suicidal pass to go. Mayans were not of any of these fundamentalists faiths. They were very wise astrologers and all the astrologers that I read are saying that everything is normal as ever. Also the Mayan calandar does not match ours and therefore the end of it actually either occurred a few years back or will be a couple of years going forward.

    • Waw, I never knew that, recently I’m aiming my focus on Ancient Egypt and Sumerian history. Thanks for that.
      I agree, so many people want the free pass out of life to share it with us. It also gives people an excuse to slack off, there so many people around me who are not doing much with their lives and when you point that out they say ‘Leave it to god’s hands’ I believe god’s hands will give more attention to those who deserve it.

  2. The day after the election was “two months to the day until the end of the world.” On my facebook newsfeed, polarized statuses regarding the elections coupled with end of the world talk made me want to move to Guam. It was refreshing to read this. Reason!! Loved the cartoon, too. I read somewhere recently “It’s helpful to remember in times like these that there have always been times like these.”

    • I’m glad you enjoyed my post :). You are right, it helps to remember in times like these there have always been times like these, very well said.
      Thanks for stepping by and for the follow.

  3. I’m with you on this one… LOL 12-21-12 is my birthday and I have plans so they are just gonna have to postpone any apocalypse .. LOL Of course I’m making fun, but it is my birthday and I AM sick of hearing the documentaries on (insert gloomy music) Doomsday,
    coming soon to a place near you… LOL
    How is school going? Are you still doing finals or have you past that already?

  4. Ha! I LOVE this! Did you hair that they actually found the rest of the Mayan Calendar? It was in a hidden cavern, buried under rock. All well, I guess we’ll just have to reschedule the apocalypse for another year. Preferably one in 2100. πŸ˜€

    But seriously, I agree, if the end of the world is going to happen, it’s going to happen. There is nothing you can do about it. Everything dies, eventually. Even the brightest star won’t shine forever. So just live life as fully as possible before the day Death comes knocking at your door.
