We are fatals with a very short lifespan relative to history of mankind, history of the world, history of the universe, etc.
Yet, every generation has a longing to witness an "extraordinary event that will change everything". Depending on the person's priorities or
obsessions, this could be the return of the messiah, the destruction of earth, arrival or discovery of alien life forms, a meteor impact on earth, end
of times, armageddon, etc.
Yeah, wouldn't you be peeved if the messiah (or the aliens or the meteor) were to arrive a few weeks after you died???
Truth is, the chances are soo against you as far as probabilities go...
If you think about it, someone who was born in early 20th century and lived for 80 years or so, has witnessed 2 world wars, annihilation of races,
nations, ideologies... Man's journey to the moon, previously unfathomable scientific advances, completion of earth's conquer by man.... Not to
mention the big approach to the millenium....
Yet, nothing supernatural happened, messiah did not come, aliens are yet to make provable contact, meteor did not hit, and the world did not come to
Things happen around us all the time, but like a fish unaware of water, we ignore it. The killing of millions of jews and others simply went unnoticed
while it was happening but the Y2K scare was spread worldwide. People are being killed by the millions in Asia and Africa, while people on ATS are
talking about the NWO's planning to reduce the planet's population by 2012...
Life is a present tense affair not future... Instead of being scared of what will happen, pay attention to what IS happening now.
