But you should never rule out the worst my friend
Im not saying its going to happen..soon or 2012..
But even past our own understanding anything is possible..
There is no point in even entertaining the thought that the world is going to end. "You should never rule out the worst" -- yes we should, for if the
worst happens... A.) It's out of our control and there would be nothing we could do about it anyway, and B.) It's completely impossible for anybody
to make such a prediction based on the text that the world has studied for centuries....
Why even bother thinking about it, if it does come true... the moment of reckoning, I'm sure... everyone will just be like "Oh, well hey -- what do
you know, I guess it's happening" and that is if you even have time to realize it's happening.
It's like the whole world just wants the world to end. I don't get it, but personally, I like living... and as a result, I'm going to pay no mind to
the end of the world, for there is no point in it. I don't gain any advantages knowing it's coming, all I get to do is psych myself out and become
afraid... what good is that?
So again, if the world were to come to an end, there would be no tomorrow, so how could you benefit from the foreknowledge of the event, when there is
no way to prepare for it... Hence, there being no reason to waste time talking about it....
I ask you dutifully to rebuke my stance in this argument... but alas, you cannot.
As for the guy above me...
Ofcourse the end is coming.... Everything that has a beginning has an end... and as time moves forward, the end gets every so slightly closer to the
current "present" in the timeline....
However, that end... is likely billions of years away, if you think the world is going to biblically come to an end in your life time, you are
dillusional.... If you think man is going to kill the planet in your life, you are also dillusional....
You will not be alive to witness the end, and that is the only constant.... none of us will, following any kind of "spiritual" (what does that even
mean anyway) path that says it's going to end in your lifetime... is just a waste of a great mind.
