On a Houston freeway, there’s a sign proclaiming the end of the world is coming in 2012, and it has generated enough attention to create considerable conversation. The end of the world has been portrayed on the big screen more times than a few, but where did this come from?
Somewhere I read that, depending on your source, it can be blamed on
1) the Mayan calendar
2) the earth’s magnetic poles
3) impact by an asteroid
Now, I don’t know about any of that, but it does seem that in the last couple of years an inordinate number of bizarre things have been happening. There has been an unusual amount of snow, ice and flooding in parts of this country. There have been three major earthquakes on different parts of the globe. There have been devastating tsunamis. There is potential for a nuclear catastrophe in Japan. There is chaos in the Middle East and Libya. There are shooting rampages that make no sense at all.
Together all these things may not mean the end of the world, but they just may lead to the end of the world as we know it. So, what does that mean for those of us who inhabit this planet? Is it possible we need to change the way we live, become more compassionate and nonjudgemental, more loving so that we might live together in peace?
Do you have answers? Thoughts? If so, would you please share them?
Hopefully, when 2012 has come and gone, the drama will be no greater than at the turn of the century when we were spooked by thoughts of Y2K.
