    End of Times!?

    With all of the weird weather we're having and general global turmoil, just wondering if any of the religious folks here are caught up in the "End of Times" propaganda? Are these the last days, according to prophecy?

    Are you looking forward to seeing us 'sinners' burn in endless lakes of fire for a thousand years or more?

    My Mother heard the same stories when she was a child...?

    Just wondering...

    No, don't believe in end of times prophecy. If it is written by a religious nut is must be wrong. I do think however we are coming to the end, but not to punish sinners or to fulfill religious leaders prophecies. I believe since God's time with his chosen people (Bible), He's assumed policy of nonintervention. So, it may happen without God interfering. Weather goes wild, earthquakes happened, a solar flare disrupts everything, an asteroid hits earth causing death and destruction, or it could be from a nuclear war. I am inclined to think it will happen from a nuclear war. The West can't seem to stop Iran's nuclear weapons program.

    I don't think God likes humans, period. It just happened after the fall of paradise 65 million years ago, humans evolved from homo sapiens. When God became aware humans were becoming the dominant species, He intervened. Sorry, I have no scripture or text authority for my beliefs.

    He offered Jews land, which is Israel, but not salvation. Salvation is what Christians made up to gain believers. We are just like all other species, except we have higher order brains for thinking and speaking.

    "Thou shalt not have any other gods before me, ....for I am a jealous god", something like that?

    Good question.

    Sounds like a personal problem to me!

    I generally agree, but, define "religious nut" some more?

    How so? My impression is he intervenes plenty.

    I don't know enough to comment.

    How can they be 'stopped' by the west regardless, really?

    I agree we're "special", but how special?

    So special, that...we can't just DIE! so...let's just make up a way to live forever....all it requires is a leap of faith!

    No it's not the end of times; Humanity is in for an ascension of all that is good. Religious nuts have been saying end of times for years, just to justify living their shitty lives because they believe an apocalypse is imminent. End of Times religious delusions is one of the greatest PsyOps of All Time, before the technocratic elites even emerged on Planet Earth (Gaia).

    We're only special because we have gained temporary life in a dying universe.

    Apparently, you believe in God. I do, but think God assumes a policy of nonintervention. Having fine tuned the universe, God just lets it progress, or go forward. There is a purpose to the universe. It was created as a prison for Satan. Everything else is secondary.

    Things just happen. If a believer likes it, it's because of God. I think it just happens because we are here. If I fall off a cliff I will hit the bottom and die. That's life based on physical laws.

    As for war controversy, look at the history of warfare. Based on the past, there should be another major war, it's in humans DNA.

    I kind of agree, but there are some really strange things in Revelation, as if from another world. I think some of those prophecies are true. However, I don't believe in a rosy picture for humankind.

    I can't see why you even have a god. Why not just let science explain it as more is learned?

    I am a firm believer in science, but there is much it can't explain.

    Really, we understand the Universe? When did it begin and where does it end? Is there other life out in the universe? Is time travel possible?

    Most certainly. How could there not be? It's sooo vast.
