I've said this many times before and there's no reason it doesn't hold true for this date above...back
in 1988 the Christian world was gearing up for the 2nd Coming of Christ due to a pamphlet being circulated entitled, "88 Reason Why The Lords
Coming Back In '88"
...now really all the book was was mathematical quasi-scientific data but it all sounded real good. Unfortunatelly, He never
came. 1989 rolled around and a new pamphlet was released entitled, "89 Reasons Why The Lords Coming Back In '89"
...can you guess the 89th
BECAUSE THE LORD DIDN'T COME BACK IN 88
It was all very sad but nothing new...people have been running to the hills (literally!) for centuries because they believed "He" was coming
back...people have downed alot of kool-aid in the hopes "He" would return...simply by taking the "He" out of this doomsday equation doesn't make
it any less fantastic.
In the UFO Community you have several different types of believers just like in religion...you have the skeptics, the new agers, the doomsdayers, the
fence riders, the crazies with their prophecies and coded knowledge that only they're privy to, the quasi-scientists, the pseudo-linguists and last
but not least...the hypocrite. Not all believers fall into these categories but most do. You have to be careful when you come across doomsday
prophecies like this one.
