    • Trump/Clinton Debate Open Thread
      I used to get paid to watch these things. I don’t any more. So…I’m going to go read a nice novel in a coffee shop. Please feel free to talk about the debate in comments. I will, actually, be curious to hear what people have to say, just not willing to sit through so much […]

The Doomsday Code

I noticed a common thread on twitter tonight was from adults who were brought up in evangelical families.  That’s because one of the “signs of the end” is that the world would turn against Israel.  Evangelicals operating within a zionist eschatological framework have been waiting for this as a sure sign that the rapture, tribulation and second coming are upon us.  Many of us who have had to tolerate this stuff for years have been aware of how dangerous this kind of thinking is.  The reason it’s dangerous is because these religious zealots will tolerate, and in some cases, even promote, all kinds of evil because the worse the world situation is, the nearer their own salvation.

George Bush starts a crazy war?  Sign of the end.

Israelis bomb Gazans to smithereens?  They’ll all start converting to Christianity pretty soon.

Plutocrats rob billions from innocent people, leaving them impoverished in their retirement years?  There’s nothing we can do to stop corruption.

It’s just a symptom of the evil system of things that we live in.  They actually seem to be glad of all the suffering because it means their own salvation is nigh and, anyway, anyone who dies before the tribulation gets a second chance!  Isn’t that wonderful??

No. It’s demented.  Let’s not kid ourselves and be respectful of these lunatic beliefs that have the potential to propagate evil behavior without any checks.

If any of you are interested in learning about the Doomsday Code and why your Christian neighbor is looking especially anxious and giddy this week, look no further than this comprehensive documentary by Tony Robinson. Robinson has a thorough understanding of the code and spells out what it means to the rest of us towards the end of the video.  It’s long but it will tell you all you need to know and what the end timers are looking for in the near future. Why, Yes!, it is scary as all get out even if it is selfish, wishful thinking on the part of some very misguided people.  Imagine having the living daylights scared out of you 24/7 when you were a kid.  These people are not safe, their religion is more unhinged than Scientology and there are a lot of them in America.

Enjoy!

  1. “The Dead Zone” is one of my favorite movies.

    • Mine too, but that dude had brain damage.

      • I was thinking of Martin Sheen, right wing, christianist, presidential candidate who was dying to get his finger on thebutton.

  2. I’d read about this in the New Yorker or somewhere a few years ago. First I’d ever heard of it. Demented doesn’t begin to describe it, as you say. The thing that boggled me most, perhaps, was that there are fundie groups helping the most extreme Jewish groups and breeding red heifers and god-knows-what-all because that’ll bring on the end times (and incidentally kill all the Jews, I gather). Meanwhile the Israelis treat it as an “all contributions gratefully accepted” situation. They have a level of steely-eyed pragmatism I’m not sure I approve of, but I do have some sneaking admiration for.

    Sometimes, just for the hell of it, I fall into daydreams imagining what the world would be like if the kleptoids and crazoids didn’t run everything
