Before the dilettantes (the real ones and not the people which we disagree with) react to the earthquake and try to draw comparisons between it and the mini-Apocalypse in Matthew 25, let me just, you know, draw a picture for you…
Cough, cough… start with Haiti, then Chili, New Zealand and… Japan.
Before you go start assuming that we are at the end of the world, remember, this happens and has happened throughout history.
Oh wait, some dilettante already has. If only he knew what current scholarship has already said about the Mayan calender and how we have mistranslated it, missing the mark by about 300 to 400 years.
