Waiting for God - D'oh!

Do you ever wonder why the religious right has been so active for the last 25 years? Why have conservative politicians and the Republican moved closer and closer to them? And why is the GOP is so bent out of shape over building Star Wars? Why to they want it tomorrow?

Could it be they are all preparing for the literal return of God?

In his 1977 book "The 12th Planet," Zecharia Stitchin theorized based on Sumerian and Mesopotamian texts that a previously unknown planet in a 3,600-year elliptical orbit around our sun was known to the ancient peoples of Earth and is due to return soon. The Sumerians were quite advanced mathematically and astronomically and even knew about the existence of Uranus and Pluto thousands of years before modern man (who discovered them less than 100 years ago).

According to Stitchin, this planet is the home of the ancient Sumerian gods who came to Earth to create life. Subsequently renamed, these gods are the same deities of the major Western and near-East religions, from Europe to Egypt to India. Bible analysts say the great Sumerian god Enlil (also called El Shaddai and El Elyon) is the Old Testament's Yahweh or Jehovah. We know him today as God (with a capital "G").

Analysts of Stitchin say the planet, called "Nibiru" by the Sumerians ("Marduk" by the Babylonians and Mesopotamians, the "Winged Globe" by the Hebrews and "Nemesis" by the Greeks) and "Planet X" by astronomers; is due to arrive in 2003.

In January 1981 an astronomer from the U.S. Naval Observatory told the American Astronomical Society that irregularities in the orbit of Pluto indicates that the solar system contains a 10th planet. Planet X may be on its way.

Soon after, the man who every red-blooded Republican wants to be, President Ronald Reagan, began talking about extraterrestrial aliens. Mikhail Gorbachev told an audience of visiting Americans, other foreigners and Soviets that Reagan at their 1985 meeting in Geneva promised to cooperate with the Soviet Union in case the world was invaded by aliens from outer space.

Gorbachev observed, "The U.S. president said that if the earth faced an invasion by extraterrestrials the United States and the Soviet Union should join forces to repel such an invasion. I shall not dispute the hypothesis, although I think it is too early to worry about such an intrusion." (See "In These Times," Feb 25-March 10, 1987).

Can it be that Reagan, the GOP, the Christian Coalition, John Ashcroft and the rest think God is returning? That Judgment Day is coming?

It would explain much.

Is the right trying to get its house in order before God returns? Are they trying to assure their place in heaven? Imagine the consequences--a rogue planet comes into our solar system, playing havoc with our environment and seismology. At the very least, tidal waves, earthquakes and volcanoes will plague the Earth. And on top of that, here comes God to render judgment. What's a good man of faith to do?

First, cash out. If you have only a few years left, then put together as much capital as you can and live la vida loca. Could this explain the blinding speed with which the tax cut for the rich was pushed through Congress? Are they all in on it?

Next, if it's too late to do anything about issues of your personal life (corruption, cheating on your spouse, stealing, voter fraud, whatever) then only one choice remains - convert everybody else. Start interfering in people's personal lives to bully them into following the rules you think God has put down. Post the 10 Commandments in every school and courtroom in the country. Reject evolution in schools and teach creationism.

Take drastic action - attack doctors and bomb clinics, for example. And as a back up, if the right fears a vengeful God (after all, he brought such classics as the flood and the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah), they may be preparing to battle him. How? By building space-based particle beam weapons to shoot down his spaceships as they approach Earth. This could explain the rush to deploy "Star Wars" weapons in violation of international treaties. They want these suckers in place by 2003. The program also helps siphon off tax dollars to help cash in.

God help us.
