I look forward to watching the videos after reading the thread. I think some members have hit the nail on the . in saying that perhaps it is more
of a spiritual or unseen war being waged on humanity in our being dumbed down, apathetic, and self centered.
I was going to start a thread on the very same idea but since it is already covered here I will just tag along. (Im lazy afterall lol)
Here is everything as predicted nearly 2000 years ago via the Bible...
2 Timothy 3
Godlessness in the Last Days
1But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive,
disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good,
4treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do
The seed that fell among thorns stands for those who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked by life's worries, riches and pleasures, and
they do not mature.
A fool finds pleasure in evil conduct, but a man of understanding delights in wisdom.
A fool finds no pleasure in understanding but delights in airing his own opinions. = (this reminds me of facebook lol)
Say to them, 'As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD, I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that they turn from their
ways and live. Turn! Turn from your evil ways! Why will you die, O house of Israel?
Sorry to thump my Bible on you!
Edit to add: The other thing I immediatley thought of after reading the thread title was that movie "Idiocracy" if you havent seen it yet you can
order it for $5 on walmarts website with free shipping to store etc. It seems like a scenario that could just play out...
