13 Days Remain...

...until absolutely nothing happens on December 21.

People are needlessly panicking over something that isn't going to happen - the alleged "Mayan Doomsday". It has been over three years since the film 2012 was released and the brouhaha over the so-called "Long Calendar".  I wrote the following over three years ago...
I also know that all of the hubbub over December 21, 2012 would never have occurred if we truly had stuck to our Christian roots instead of buying every last pagan scenario - or worse - projected pieces of Christian theology onto pagan scenarios...

If the supposedly professed Christians of the world were serious about their faith, then none of this stuff would bother them. Instead, all of this shows what materialistic quasi-pagans the so-called Christians of the (Western) world are. Obviously, they don't take the Lord's words seriously in any meaningful way - they believe some obscure broken tablet found in the Yucatan peninsula of Mexico with more gusto than they do the promises of Christ. Strange people indeed.
Those words of Christ?
But of that day and hour knoweth no one, not even the angels of heaven, neither the Son, but the Father only (Matthew 24:36)
Granted, people have not been perfect (see the Millerites, Jehovah's Witnesses, Dispensationalists, et cetera), but in all seriousness, it is very pathetic to see the modern day emphasis on the sort of nonsense one would used to find only in cheesy novels and the sci-fi "community" (a word that needs banning, if there ever was one).  The mainstreaming of these thoughts shows once again how far we have fallen off the horse.
