Is this the end?
So far we've had two of the largest earthquakes in last 100 years seperated by 3 months, all the beloved people of the world have died or are dying (Bob Hope, Rodney Dangerfield, Mother Theresa, we've been gripped by a major story involving national leaders and the death of a woman, we're in a major war in the Middle East, and now the Pope is probably a day away from death. Not to mention the country is under the control of so-called "christians" and under attack by so-called "muslims" Is this really it?

10. Mount Saint Helens is to Yellowstone...
as a .45 pistol is to a V-2 rocket.

14. Yellowstone is a super volcano
Edited on Thu Mar-31-05 04:51 PM by Dark_Leftist
but at least there would be some sort of warning before it erupted I believe.

4. It does make one wonder
I posted elsewhere about St. Malachy's predictions about the popes and how there are only supposed to be two left. Question: If he "named" the popes and the Second Coming is supposed to happen after the reign of the last one, could the last one circumvent it by not taking the name "Peter of Rome," as is prophesied?

16. Well, Jesus said NO ONE knows when the end comes, except God, so...
Edited on Thu Mar-31-05 04:50 PM by SemiCharmedQuark
I guess that includes St. Malachy.


ALL the beloved people of the world? Are you serious?
And we have had many popes die. The world goes on.

Stuff like this happens all of the time. I think (if this isn't sarcasm) that you're reading a little too much into things. Lighten up.

30. Ditto...this is crazy logic...
It's like saying "If I drink my beer with my left hand only throughout the whole game the Seattle Mariners will win."

The Buddists don't believe the end of the world is coming and there's a hell of a lot more of them than Christians. I'll believe them.

24. Well look at it this way...

Everybody is going to die.

Would you rather die lying in a hospital bed staring at the light fixture in the ceiling, or standing outside watching something really spectacular and interesting like an asteroid plummeting to earth, or a cloud of volcanic ash 15 miles high?

being the victim of a pyroclastic flow from a volcano is not a good way to go out imho.

26. Not true about the earthquakes...
http://earthquake.usgs.gov/docs/sign_eqs.htm
You will notice that there have been a lot of 8.0 and higher earthquakes over the last 100 years. And it *is* a mathematicaly proven that random occurrences group together.
