2012.

I suppose that there is something in it for everyone.

Personally I thought that ATS would go quiet concerning 2012, especially during the last month leading up.

Primarily because the 2012 mythos is being derived from a closed loop, and the stories have become stale and full of holes and no longer hold water. There has been nothing at all that meaningfully contributes enough variety to keep the ball rolling.

I thought it would become stale.

But nope. There are still folks posting on ATS, they are still trying to cobble together bits from the limited 2012 narratives,making new casseroles and seasoning them with frightening bits of poorly conjugated Judeo-Christian thought.

And today it made me think of the prophets from Monty Python's Life of Brian.

I have seen the movie several times and although I always get a laugh out of the prophet scene, I never really nailed down what they were saying. I have gone ahead and found a script from the movie so I will be able to reveal for us all the details of their prophesying.

One more thing before we go there, though.

It is hard to know when they are kidding and when they are serious, but the Monty Python crew actually derived as much as they could from Josephus when creating the script for Life of Brian (which was written during a two week water-skiing trip to Barbados). Eric Idle has been quoted as saying, "It is based on a load of Josephus".

So here is a link to get you started on that if you are interested. And a very good WikiPedia link.

The back story on the movie is hilarious and I hope that you will check it out if you are so inclined.

So here it is. Dedicated to the few remaining Doom Porn (Beezer
) artists left on ATS.

Don't be these guys.







BLOOD & THUNDER PROPHET: ...And the bezan shall be huge and black, and the eyes thereof red with the blood of living creatures, and the whore of Babylon shall ride forth on a three-headed serpent, and throughout the lands, there'll be a great rubbing of parts. Yeeah...

FALSE PROPHET: ...For the demon shall bear a nine-bladed sword. Nine-bladed! Not two or five or seven, but nine, which he will wield on all wretched sinners, sinners just like you, sir, there, and the horns shall be on the head, with which he will...

BORING PROPHET: ...Obadiah, his servants. There shall, in that time, be rumours of things going astray, erm, and there shall be a great confusion as to where things really are, and nobody will really know where lieth those little things wi-- with the sort of raffia work base that has an attachment. At this time, a friend shall lose his friend's hammer and the young shall not know where lieth the things possessed by their fathers that their fathers put there only just the night before, about eight o'clock. Yea, it is written in the book of Cyril that, in that time, shall the third one...

Man that just kills me every time.

Have a good Sunday, ATS.

Happy Halloween.

And people wonder why we folks have a very skeptical attitude.
Some of the most genius films of all times: Monty Python.

Thanks for the thread!

oh but Frater X, your OP does not address the Prophets of "nothing will happen" and of "it'll be a day like any other"

not to mention all the "imma get drunk" posts
but that's another subject.

that have befouled the 2012 forum with their incessant frantic poo slinging threads and the flaming of any who would point out the hypocrisy/irony of their position. it should be renamed to the 2012 poo-poo-ing forum as that it all seems now as they out number the doom/ascension/change of aeon/let's be positive/ and immanentization of the eschaton threads by a factor of a 100 to 1

L
L the video while funny in and of itself is oddly enough reflective of the zeitgeist of the middle east in the days of jesus and after. and of today. the charlatans/disinfo agents counter reacting are many.

thus it is written:



Beware False Prophets..



Immanentize the Eschaton.

Well I don't think we have ever taken that bunch very seriously, have we?

Meh. ATS.

That's why I added the Josephus stuff. The Pythons worked that in to the script on purpose. It's intentional.


Beware False Prophets..



Always good advice.

I have always liked you DLE. And I realize what I wanted to share with you.

It's our job as magicians to be a lysing agent, we serve a metabolic function, I like to think of us as macrophages.

All of this old crusty narrative needs to be busted up and digested. Gotta make room for more. Wait till you see what I do to Carlos Castenada.

Immanentize the Eschaton.



In my own way I believe that I am.

Thanks for coming by.



P.S. That's FraterCCX.

Have a happy Sunday.

P.S.S. And I just realized: Isn't it nice that 2012 has an expiration date on it? That means it won't linger around to haunt us like some of the other stuff of its type, like Castenada, The Illuminati and The Book of The Law.
