Good God

Just caught a few minutes of Falwell and others discussing on "The Situation Room" whether the recent spate of natural disasters mean the prophesied "end times" are upon us.

Things like that make me wish they were.

I couldn't believe what I was watching. Where does one start? First, it looks like CNN is sinking to the level of, "If a few people believe it's true, we'll assume it's true and treat it as credible." Second, although I didn't watch the entire segment, I doubt there was any historical perspective on times in the past when everyone thought the world was going to end. Sticking with the U.S. for a moment, the Adventists went through something called "The Great Disappointment" in the 19th century, when the Lord did not come back at the specified time. That's just one example, folks. Third -- and this applies to all religions and spiritual beliefs (including those who abstain from all religions and all spritiual beliefs) -- guess what? No human is God. Thus, no one knows how everything was or was not created, no one knows what will happen at the end of the world (if it ever ends), and no one knows which level of hell the neighbor who borrows tools without returning them for eight months will eventually call home. Believe what you want, but we all must accept that we don't know -- and will never know -- all the grand truths of the universe. Deal with it, people. Finally, when does America's "The world is coming to an end!" crowd lose all credibility? I mean, some of these people have been saying it for decades.
