Ever since man has tainted this beautiful planet, prophets and religious freaks alike have predicted the end of the world. Thus far all have failed, so they are taking matters in to their own hands. Christians, Jews, and Muslims are all trying to speed up the the second coming to bring about the end.
Recently several Megachurch pastors met at the Faith Central Bible Church in Inglewood, California to finalize strategies for fulfilling the Great Commission. By using global communications and aircraft they are allowing missionaries to make every person on Earth aware of Jesus’ message. They plan on building 5 million churches worldwide in 10 years. In doing so they believe it will speed up the whole Revelations thing.
Then there’s the Muslims, like Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who has spent millions making improvements in Tehran to make it more welcoming for the return of Mahdi, the Muslim messiah. Ahmadinejad expects to see him any day now.
And let’s not forget about the "Chosen Ones", our friendly neighborhood Jews. They are planning to rebuild a temple in hopes to clear a path for their messiah. They are even receiving help from the Christians (mostly southern ones) who believe that according to prophecy, they will stand united together when the end is near. Evangelist John C. Hagee of the 19,000-member Cornerstone Church in San Antonio has helped 12,000 Russian Jews move to Israel.
What’s even more psychotic is that 40% of Americans believe that the events leading to the end are already underway. I wonder if this related to the Unites States’ abysmal scores in math and science :) But seriously, why are religious people so bent on Judgment Day? Are their lives so sad that all they to look forward to is the end? Christian, Muslims, and Jews give me your take on this weird trend. As for my Atheist readers, go repent!
