I can understand your viewpoint. And I also sometimes find "western" arrogance to be extreme. However, consider the bible reassures us that "we"
(people? the world? christians?) will SEE these things come to pass. As such, I think this necessitates a certain level of public exposure, if we're
to accept "revelations" at all.
