Guys, I have been stopped by old men wanting to give out the new revisal of the New Testament and such. And I've heard the soap box preachers screaming through their microphones about how I'm gonna go to Hell for carrying an iPod.
But this is the first time I have ever been stopped by one of the guys talking about the End Times. And yes I was stopped for an hour long conversation about the differences between the Jewish belief of the End Times vs. the Christian belief of the End Times.
And while yes, all that's written in the Talmud you Christians kinda knocked off to create the Revelations, I was still laughing my head off inside while talking to this guy because he and many Evangelicals are believing THE END IS NIGH!
Well, I sat and I listened and still, despite the fact I've read the Book of Revelations (BTW great horror book written over a thousand years ago by a guy who was actually narking on the Roman government than really relating the End Times such. Yeah, Christians, that's what the book of Revelations was all about, John the Revelator having a cow over Roman currency and elitism.) Still I just can't get over the fact that I finally met one of the End of the World preachers.
Usually these guys are all over the place with their signs and such in New York, but not Knoxville. Apparently, they've moved to Knoxville because New York kicked them out.
Well, the guy was professional looking, which is a new one. Usually they're all scruffy and drunk, but whatever sells the package, right?
But fine, crazy End of the World nuts, believe what you want. It's a free country. I believe it's the end of humanity because we've got a lot of stupid people running the planet and stupid people will be the end of us. Yes, the world will become One Idiocracy under God, and then it will end, not with a bang, but a 'Duuuuuuhhhhhhh'. But that's me.
But I enjoy talking to these guys. Still not gonna change my beliefs or my spirituality. I'm not into the whole organized religion thing. Especially one that states I'm gonna go to Hell for having a different opinion. It should always be about being a good person in life, and dying you know you were a good person, right? Right?
Guess many of the Christians don't think so.
Just on a side note, despite my spiritual beliefs in Great Cthulhu...(giggles)....I do keep two Bibles at my apartment. Both of them were given to me. One was given to me by my grandmother, who passed away about 5 years ago, and the other was given to me by my mother. And despite the fact that I hardly read them anymore, I still have them. Guess it's a sentimental thing.
