When I was about 12, I was convinced the world would end in 1996. I saw it on the cover of the National Enquirer. That coupled with the news that some archaelogist had discovered a Mayan timeline that showed the end of mankind before the year 2000, and I was really concerned. Well ’96 has come and gone, hasn’t it. I still think the world will ‘end’ some day, though not in the same way as I did as a kid. But when I read stories like this, my conspiracy theory radar gets beeping and it gets me wondering again:
Microchips could be implanted into people to track them. This isn’t a particularly new idea, however it would severely limit personal rights and freedoms, and help in ushering a one-world government.
Much of England is facing the worst flooding it has seen in decades. 500 people have died in Hungary this month from a monster heat wave. And we all know the icebergs are melting.
Two arch-enemies are discussing Iraq and the Middle East. If talks fail, could a major war be far behind?
Churches (like this one) are doing what I would call weird things to stay ‘current’.
The Internet gives coverage world-wide to any events that are recorded. All eyes can tune in.
So we’ve got ragingly weird weather, potential massive war, microchip tracking systems, churches going contemporary and a tool like the Internet to tell every body: looks like we’re in trouble. Add to that Lindsay Lohan is probably going to jail, and we’ve got what Billy Bob Thornton would say is “basically the worst parts of the Bible”.
