Maybe we are going to have to figure out a way to teach all people (including ourselves) that the mind is capable of both wonder and folly. Each of us makes mistakes extrapolating that which we intuit into useful informatioin. And the same mind that makes such mistakes ofttimes tries to protect itself from knowing that it erred. As shown in the above article.
It all gets quite complicated. We humans err about other humans, about religion, about economics, about government and about which sports team is the best. And in the midst of all that, we try to construct civilizations and institutions and excuses that never seem to do what we want them to do. Which confuses us.
Our brains aren't built for this sh*t. But they're all we've got. I do hope that the non-appearance of JC over the next few millennia will reduce the number of suckers significantly. But my intuition on such things shouldn't be trusted, so it is probably wiser for me to assume that the fundamentalists will sustain their numbers, for what will only seem like an eternity.
I emailed Camping last year and the two bozo's who have made similar claims about this month, telling them that it wouldn't/won't happen. The only response I've gotten was one email auto-reply. But that still makes me more successful than any of them. They have gotten nothing whatsoever from their version of god.
Thanks for posting this Omen. Well worth the read.
