The new year is projected to be the end of the world by some, in accordance with the Mayan calendar which some believe ends in December of 2012.
I suppose it will be for those who die during 2012. But as for the rest of us, we should survive a while longer.
The hour of the general apocalypse is known by no one, according to Scripture, except that it will be at a time no one expects and will come like a thief.
It reflects ill on New Agers and others — who are admittedly picturesque — to promulgate predictions from barbaric people who sacrificed some of their finest young people to the gods.
But wait a minute, don't we do the same thing when we send our young people to war?
