I love the spirit with which most folk are marking the supposed end of the world tomorrow, May 21 2011. The Mayor of New York says folks won’t have to worry about alternate side parking, and that the Rapture will probably help with the City’s traffic problems. One sign – carried by someone wearing a Big Bird costume – said ‘Make Your Last Meal Vegan’. And three kids, who parents are True Believers, have tried in vain to point out to the parental units that there’s no sense in making the bed if the world is going to end in a couple of days.
But seriously, folks – what kind of god would be so egomaniacal as to save just a few of His children, and intend to have them worship Him for all eternity? – sounds neurotic, narcissistic and totally insecure to me. And that god must be male, because the Mother Goddess would never do such a thing to those She nurtured. Besides, what a boring and tedious version of heaven. I intend to check into a much better Mansion when I check out! : >
