“The sky is falling!”
So, I have some free time at work right now. We have a Christmas party tonight that I am feeling anxious about, so I thought I would distract myself by playing around on the internet. Now I’m wondering why I was so foolish as to research the Mayan prediction that the world will end on 12/21/2012…THIS FRIDAY!!! It’s like my brain is just LOOKING for things to feel anxious about! I am a Christian and subscribe to the beliefs put forth in the Bible. I know what it says about how the world will end. Well, as best as my mind can understand it. I know there are a lot of Christian theories about the end of the world, and I vacillate back and forth as to what will happen. I’m not going into that here, though. My point is that I firmly believe that God is in control, and things will happen the way He has planned. Which is why it is absolutely insane that I am FREAKING OUT about Friday coming. I guess that’s not the only reason that’s insane. LOL
I was on some website that explained the end of the Mayan calendar. I didn’t really retain the information well enough to be able to articulate it to anyone, but they had a lot of scientific “facts” and reasons for why it is SURE that the world will be ending on Friday. Something about the way the sun is pulled and how it will tip, which it does every 11 years. This year is different because of the placement of Jupiter and another planet. Basically, from what I could tell, the sun is going to flip our solar system, and there is a question as to whether the Milky Way Galaxy will even exist.
Wait a second…The website I was on talked about how to be prepared for the world ending, and to know that you can’t rely on the government to get you the supplies and utilities you have become used to having. If the Milky Way Galaxy will no longer exist, what good will it do for me to stock up on food and water? What good will it do for me to be armed to the teeth?
Maybe I don’t need to worry about this as much as I thought. This was probably a silly post, and I’m sorry to the people who made it through to the end for wasting your time. I feel better, though. 🙂
