Wow, May 21 really was the end of the world as I know it: I was fired from one of my part time jobs.

It’s now in the wee morning of May 22nd, driven home after an evening with friends eating good food and watching Zombie holocaust movies (Sean of the Dead, Resident Evil and Army of Darkness). Strangely, I’d have expected a hairy time driving  - what with many drivers being raptured out of their cars I was expecting many accidents and chaos in the streets. No such thing, though. The rapture was a bust.

Now I suppose some of the folks promising us the end of the world yesterday, I suppose they are satisfied they got a lot of us to entertain the idea of Jesus actually returning, the idea of judgment too. And they are right that most of us did consider it too, but where they miscalculated was with confirmation bias. Because Atheists considered the idea and realized how secure they were in their Atheism, non Christians felt appreciative that their faith isn’t so silly, and many Christians understood how secure they are in not knowing if and when Jesus would return.

Not once has skepticism lost when tested with doomsday memes.

The truth is that the future is unwritten, and those that dare to assume responsibility for that future will be the ones that shape that future. So if you are patiently expecting and waiting for the rapture, you aren’t focusing on who you are and where you are right now, and what positive change you can be to the world.

Don’t imagine that Christians have a monopoly on this left behind idea, in Eastern faiths the fact of human birth can mean being left behind and denied a more noble birth.

So perhaps it’s just as well we believe ourselves left behind. Because God will not fix the economy. God will not apply for jobs on our behalf. Maybe God is an absentee landlord by design, if so, that validates Humanism and if you would demonstrate faith and respect to God, you’d expect people to help people and not God.

    All this talk about Endtimes, the end of all our days… floods, erupting volcanos, earthquakes and whatever else… and now we’ve got an E-coli outbreak! If I didn’t know better I’d swear we were in 2012 already LOL!

    • Exactly, if you hold the thought of end times, there are many circumstances of disaster or disease that can be used to help the confirmation bias along. But if you alter your interpretation slightly, you could reflect on how disasters and disease, no matter how severe, are circumstances that human beings SURVIVE as a species.

      Human being is so adaptable and so naturally diverse, we can handle and survive almost anything. Yes, there are very hard times ahead, we live, as in the classic Chinese curse, in interesting times. Capitalism is failing, the eco-system is endangered and global warming may be a catalyst for an increasing prevalence of natual disasters. But we’re human beings, we adapt, we survive.

      So everything you believe is evidence of ‘end times’, I assert is evidence for the longevity of the human race! I invite you to try on my interpretation!

  7. Greetings from Ohio! I’m bored to death at work so I decided to check out your blog on my iphone during lunch break.

  8. Wonderful blog! I found it while browsing on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Thank you

  9. Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?

    • I recommend linux servers with cpanel. If you have such a configuration, you can back up the mysql database of your wordpress installation, if you do this routinely – you will never lose more than a few posts to hackers. If you do not have cpanel, a system administrator should back up your server for you routinely, contact them to make certain.

      This blog uses wordpress, and as this is the only blog I’ve used I can’t tell you it is better or worse than any other, I can just tell you it is mad powerful and I like it.

      The best defense against a hacker is a solid password. A solid password used letters, numbers and ‘shift’ characters like “!@#$%^%&*” – and should be more than 5 characters. Those shift characters are really important. Hackers usually use ‘brute force’ to crack a password, and if they have to work with shift characters it increases the complexity exponentially.

  10. Wow! This blog looks exactly like my old one! It’s on a completely different subject but it has pretty much the same page layout and design. Superb choice of colors!
