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.
