And I still feel fine

Today is December 21, 2012 and we’re still here. So, it appears the Mayan Apocalypse never happened. The fact is, these things never happen because no one knows when, precisely, the world will end. There are plenty of things that could do it—super volcanoes, asteroid impact, war, etc.—but none of them were seen by a civilisation that couldn’t even predict its own demise.

Neither can religious crackpots accurately predict the end of the world, though they can certainly make money from pretending that they can. No one—NO one—knows when the word will end. People need to stop pretending or believing that anyone does, and those that persist in that belief, well, mental health professionals might be of some assistance.

There are many things in this world I’m not sure about, but one I am sure of is this: This is not my last post to this blog.

Spammers found this post and posted a "comment" after you did. You know, they almost make wish the apocalypse was real—for them! (just kidding—mostly…)
