People worry about the end of days arriving in 2012. I mean, the Mayan calendar is a well accepted authority on all things eschatology related. I pretty much depend on it and my readings of the movie Independence Day for all major life decisions.
But what if we’re off by a year on the date? Our calendar is based on a virgin birth some 2000 odd years ago. That’s pretty squishy as dating systems go. In fact, if you really want to base your system on a virgin birth, you could have reset it any time while I was in high school. We had at least three different girls who got pregnant and swore they had never been with a guy.
See, here’s the thing. Mayans are cool and all but I like to rely on America. And American sources tell us that the Rapture is actually coming this year. May 21, 2011 to be precise. So what if she’s right and we’ve been living as though we had to make it one more year but really it’s only 4.5 more months. Yeah, kind of makes you rethink NOT taking that last shot of tequila on New Year’s Eve, huh?
We here at RSBS want to encourage you to get out there and live every day like it’s your last. Because it might be. Has anyone checked out the Zoroastrian calendar recently?
