Well it’s time to move the Doomsday clock ahead again. Crisis, chaos, pandaemonium and hilarity ensues. I personally agree with scientists except in one minor respect. I think, nay I’m certain that we are already there. We have arrived. Now is the time. The party is over and it’s time to go.
Of course why I feel that way is pretty much 108 degrees in opposition to our “great” scientific minds. You know the guys who gave us “global cooling, global warming and now climate change”. The people who are so involved in proving God doesn’t exist that they can’t be bothered to work on cures for diseases, finding alternate energy sources, or building buildings that can withstand disasters.
Then there are the rest of us. So enamored of our little lives we think only about the next “fix” (new TV programs, movies, games- sport, video and or computer). The lottery ticket that’s going to change our lives, the new man or woman who’s going to “make us happy”. The better job with more money that’s going to cure all our ills or the new set of pills that’s going to help us not care that our lives are empty, sad and lonely.
We who have a spark of the divine are simply too busy, too intelligent, to mature, to sophisticated to need the Creator. We understand how everything works. We have come up with theory after theory and pronounce them as fact as to the existence or lack there of, of a higher authority. We’ve traded a Heavenly Father for Barak Obama. We do unto others before they do unto us. We swear at each other, curse each other, neglect each other, abuse each other, maim and kill each other all in the name of …………..nothing. We do it because we can, because we want to, because we are all there is ( and a bag of chips).
Some have bemoaned the lack of civility in modern life, some look with horror at the carnage that our cities have become, some wish there were new places to discover just to leave behind the morass of modern life with it’s robot sex toys and prancing soft porn TV actors. There is however no escape. Even without the media one is under constant barrage from the forces of darkness and let there be no mistake they are there and they are winning. One of the greatest tools in the arsenal of the destroyer is to make people believe he doesn’t exist. In that way he has free rein to sow contention, hatred, disrespect and calamity without fear of reprisal.
Don’t believe me. Look at the news. See the horrific things man does to man on a minute to minute basis. Look around and see the little and great indignities forced upon those who are weak and helpless. Look at Washington, a greater group of nere’do wells has never been seen on this planet.
So go ahead turn the clock a couple of minutes but I’m here to bear witness that it’s all for nothing. Ladies and gentlemen,
WE ARE ALREADY THERE.
