Apocalypse Now?

So 6p.m. has come and gone. Looks like we are all still here (in the US, on the East Coast at least)…for now. Cue ominous music.  I have to admit, I am a little disappointed. I expected the clock to strike 6 and a chasm to come splitting down the center of my room, revealing the smoldering depths of the inferno.  I expected a one way ticket to a lava lake side house in the pits of hell.  I expected winged and hoofed demons of the underworld, Satan’s minions, to be ravaging the earth outside, and for a minute I thought I heard them, until I realized it was just  the damn birds chirping outside my window on a gloriously sunny day.   

So no apocalypse?  No rapture?  No judgment?  No end of the world?  How can this be?  I mean, this judgment day even had advertising.


“He hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world,” Acts 17:31…I guess that day just isn’t today.  Maybe Jesus is busy.  It is wedding and graduation season after all, and if he RSVP’d to a sit down dinner, it would be in poor taste to shady dip, even if it is to judge the sins of humanity.

So, I guess next up it’s the Mayan’s, and their 2012 doomsday prediction (I honestly wish this was over as well, because the thought of sitting through another John Cusack Armageddon-esque movie makes me wish it really was the end).  And if history has taught us anything, it’s that we really suck at predicting the future…unless you’re Miss Cleo.
