Good news is boring.
That's pretty much what I was thinking. So doesn't that kind of take away from the validity of a prophecy? I mean, if someone predicts good global
news, it won't sell, the books and news reels will just collect dust, right? To me, commercialism has always taken away from the legitimacy of
something; someone will just cater to what the people want to hear instead of telling the truth. I mean, as an amatuer musician, that's something
that I'm always battling with: trying to do what I feel and trying to do something that the people will buy. From what I've seen it's the same in
every industry, and the paranormal doesn't seem to be immune to it. It's pretty obvious that the "market" for predictions focuses on end times.
So why are we, the market, so fixated on the end of the world? Are we looking for a scapegoat so we don't have to do our homework or go to work? Is
it because if it happens the Christians can hold up Revelations and say "I told you so?" I mean, from a business perspective, wouldn't it be much
better for the end times to not be near so that way you can make money for a long time?
BTW--who is Mancow? I've never heard that name before...
