Quote# 72432

I was just saying to DH last night that unless one is actually watching and looking for the signs God warned us about, life seems normal. I've spoken to so many people just to see what they think and I am surprised to see that the majority of them don't see anything that different. Sure, they'll say there seems to be more earthquakes but then they'll chalk it up to the earth shifting, something natural. They'll say that the Middle East has always been going back and forth as it is now, they'll say there's always been famine in different parts of the world so in other words........they see everything as normal therefore life continues as normal, drinking and eating and giving in marriage.....because they aren't "watching" and looking as we are, they don't see it as we do. I've even spoken to believers who don't "see it"

Why am I picturing Christina wearing a tinfoil hat and surrounded by gallons of water, walls of hoarded toilet paper and Spam, and about three dozen cats?

Golly gee, people sure say some strange things, eh, Christina?

Maybe the people you talk to aren't paranoid weirdos who WANT the world to end.

Yes, Christina, and that's known as confirmation bias.

We also don't see the purple flying sparklies and neon vampire kittens that populate Christina's world.

"...unless one is actually watching and looking for the signs God warned us about, life seems normal."

Funny how that works, isn't it?

Perhaps they don't "see it" because it's "not there."

The problem with trying to look for signs is that you can interpret them to fit your view, silly little paranoid Christina.

4/25/2010 7:57:12 PM



When you're looking for signs, you will find them in absolutely anything and everything. Hell, I could start looking for signs that Ragnarok is coming and I'd find them. I could look for signs that Taliesen is going to be reborn so that we'll have another god on Earth/folk hero/damn good artist-mystic and I'd find them.

I choose to look for skulls in odd places though. I know it's just my mind making order out of random patterns, but it's a fun little hobby.

Oh, so close.

You must be 'special' then, Christina. What did your Dirty Hippy say?

This is a paragraph that could have been written at any time since the birth of Christ.

You mean people are actually enjoying their lives and not being twatwaffles like yourselves? THE HORROR!

Kid, shit happens. Earthquakes have always been this common. The only thing is that detecting equipment has become better and more common over time.

Dude I've TOTALLY seen it! This morning, my cat sneezed. And yesterday, it snowed. These are truly signs that the rapture is near!

*Sadly, I'm not joking about the snow thing. However, where I live, as depressing as snow in April is, it's par for the course. Sigh.

Christina: grow the fuck up and deal with reality for once in your miserable life!

whenever I read the "DW", "DH", "DS", "DD" thing I want to strangle the purveyor of such sentimentalist crap with their own small intestine!

It's nauseating, and how anyone could thereafter take them seriously is beyond me

4/25/2010 11:15:19 PM



See, Christina, this is just how paranoia works. Time for your meds.


@ Mihangel apYrs

I think in many cases it's just laziness rather than sentimentalism.

People who study earthquakes and volcanoes say it's neither more nor fewer than normal. The Earth is more global now, we hear about everything, and we get news faster than ever before.

What signs? More and more children survive to the age of five? More and more women can use their human rights? More and more children are educated? Yeah, those are horrible signs, indeed.

There is much truth in what you say Christina. For several years only Rapture Ready members have been able to "see it", and for many millions of years to come, only Rapture Ready members will be able to "see it". Keep telling us all whenever you "see it".

The Bible is full of shit like this, and that was apparently thousands of years ago. What's the difference now?

"there seems to be more earthquakes"

No there doesn't.

Make the world a better place, Christina.
Kill yourself.

You're seeing things that aren't there because you're not just watching and looking -- you're obsessing.

They'll say there seems to be more earthquakes but then they'll chalk it up to the earth shifting, something natural.

Check.

They'll say that the Middle East has always been going back and forth as it is now,

Check.

they'll say there's always been famine in different parts of the world

Check.

It's a reality check! And on RR, they always bounce.

That's because the people you talk to live in reality.
