If you are reading this, you are apparently not one of the three percent of the population who has gone on a magical journey to the sweet hereafter. May 21 is said to be Judgement Day. The day the end of the world begins.
The other 97 percent of the population who are not worthy of this journey to a better place are to experience five months of horrific natural disasters that will wipe them out. By Oct. 21 the universe will disappear. People have sold everything they have because they are one of the chosen few.
Related to this is the string of completely disgusting crap being sent to our paper that people want us to put on the letters page. Are you Jewish, gay, black or how about anything, but a righteous religious fanatic? If you are, apparently you are omitted from the end of the world escape that this three percent of Earth’s population have gone on. It doesn’t matter if they are a person who spreads racial slurs and prejudice because they have been “chosen.”
I can’t take it. I won’t go into a debate about everyone’s different Gods or beliefs, but I cannot believe that any God would take nasty, racist, horrible human beings away to the hereafter. If there is a God she/he would leave these people behind., (if for no other reason than because the nice people don’t deserve to have to put up with them).
If I was God, I would take people who are kind. People who are there to lend a hand. I would take the people who do good because they are good. I would not take the self-centred, cold people who only do for others if there is something in it for them. Nor would I take people who purposefully hurt living beings. The sweet hereafter should be a place for goodness.
If I was God I would take people like Oprah Winfrey. She has done her share. I would not take Arnold Schwarzenegger. He has not. Schwarzenegger has been bamboozling for a long time…and I am not talking about his most recent transgression. He hyped up the idea of a completely unfeasible hydrogen highway. Have you heard any talk of it lately? He pulled all the electric car power stations that were set up as infrastructure in California. He does for Arnold.
I would take the guy who filled his truck with supplies and headed up to Slave Lake to lend a hand…and how about the fire fighters risking their lives? There has to be a cut-off point. There are tons of good people on this planet and if there is one thing that I have learned it is that good people don’t usually go around blowing their own horn. They are too busy doing.
These chosen few (and I use the term loosely) might have had a rude awakening when they woke up May 22. This end of the world is not the first, but one of many due dates that have come and gone. The hereafter should have a reservation list that only includes truly good people on it…the rest should have to go to a more realistically appropriate place to live. I would think that “the” God would be intolerant of intolerance.
