How many times is the World going to End?

Updated on January 20, 2012

Seventy times seven maybe?

The question doesn't seem farfetched since, according to the site Religious Tolerance, every single 40 plus of recorded apocalyptic predictions have failed.

That should be good news, no?

Sometimes it seems like some religions are based on fear of dying, the aftermath, life after or the end of the world.

What if the world is not flat? I mean, what if there is no end but a new beginning? What if there was no beginning and no end?

Well, so far Humanity has been going in circles and endless cycles.

Fear is a powerful thing. Wouldn't it be nice to follow any path out of love instead of fear?

How many Christians existed if they remained convinced that Hell doesn't exist?

In Mathew 24:34 Jesus said "This generation shall not pass?"

Which generation? Every round year, or whatever number since then, has been a good day to declare the Armageddon.

What's with the panic button?

I am going on a cruise on December 2012. That is if I get around to fatten my piggy bank.

On January 1 of the year 1000, many Christians gave away their possessions to Church in anticipation of the end of the world; just like it happened recently, brought to you by Mr. Camping of Family Radio. Of course their site is not up anymore, neither are their billboards across the world.

In the year 1000, after the world didn't end, the Church did not return the possessions given by its fellowship, and heretics were killed. Just like it still keeps looted riches from the Holocaust... now that was an Apocalypse.

History repeating itself, and it doesn't matter the technology, or the advancements in science, we remain a frightful, superstitious race.

I used to write the horoscope column for a magazine. I could've been writing the preacher's message... It's all the same... The believer is the one that makes it real... Same thing with pharmaceutical ads... All a script, not real until the audience, a patient, our brethren says by jolly it's true!

Atheists don't have a song...

"A man with a conviction is a hard man to change. Tell him you disagree and he turns away. Show him facts or figures and he questions your sources. Appeal to

A person cannot be set apart if its whole set of convictions. It is difficult to set aside what one believes is true, especially when you have been constantly exposed to certain information, or disinformation.

For faith comes from hearing and hearing and hearing the word of God- Romans 10:17

And it is precisely due to this constant repetition that most find it ever so impossible to exert any kind of personal criteria. And others would take any level of questioning or analysis as trying to challenge God or plain heresy.

I thought Jesus had a great sense of humor...

I thought he was merciful, all that good stuff...

What he has proven is to be very patient. He has not only dealt with those persistently predicting the end and one side and those that keep laughing at the matter on the other.

If you want to take it literally... wait until the Sun stops to shine

If we are to take the Bible literally, we should be waiting until the Sun ceases to shine. Instead there are predictions that go as far as 2250 in their intent of hitting it when it comes to the Armageddon.

And since we have been predicting the world to end since before the birth of Jesus, it sure is likely to continue.

Irresponsible version of the End of the World... might as well die laughing

Less irresponsible, still funny!

Post now before doom is upon us!

      If the world is going to end, what is the point in selling or giving away your stuff?
