One thing that I've always been curious about is why there's never any prophecies that bring good news. You rarely, if ever hear anyone talk about something like "the world will last until humans have evolved to move past it," or "in the year 20XX there will be world peace." Why is it always about the end of the world? Is it because no one really wants good news? Do we all secretly want to know everything is going to hell in a handbag? I'll admit it; I get excited when there's breaking news about a natural disaster or something bad. I was glued to Mt. St. Helens Volcanocam for 2 months when it started rumbling. But it gets old after awhile. Are there any "happy" prophets, or do they just get laughed out of all the psychic conventions?

I listen to Mancow everyday and some of the time when he talks about problems with his wife he says. Good news is boring, you people dont want to hear about how much i lover her or the dinner she made me last night. The fighting is the interesting part and keeps you listening cause you want to know what happens.

Just a thought.

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...
