    • Rationality Is A Process, Not A Conclusion (Nuclear Weapons Edition)
      A lot of mistakes come from assuming rationality means “thinks the same way I do” rather than “reasons from premises I might not share.” Left than 1/1000 economists predicted the financial collapse, because they reasoned from assumptions like “the market is self-correcting” or “housing prices never go down.” (Sometimes both at the same time, which is rarely […]

OhFerPetesSakes, Alexis Tsipris is not the Antichrist

The Syriza swish-star logo makes a cool “mark of the beast”.

The headlines at many Rapture sites are claiming that the new head of Greece is he-who-shall-not-be-named. I mean, he came out of nowhere, although, I have to admit that this site was almost three years early. I’m not sure if they’re tuned into the End Times or are really good at political forecasting. Maybe Hillary should hire them. (Wait, could a woman become an anti-christ? Now, that would be unexpected.)

But anyway, Tsipris met with the Pope. His supporters are called The Earthquake. He might bring down the Euro! Dogs and cats living together! The Signs! The Signs!

Oh, please.

Alexis Tsipris is like, what, the 20th possible antichrist? Whatever happened to Juan Carlos of Spain? What about Obama? HE came from nowhere and was backed by some mysterious, nebulous group to become leader of the most powerful empire on earth, right? And now he’s being upstaged by some dude in rinky-dink Greece?

In all likelihood, Tsipris is NOT the antichrist (again), the End Times are NOT coming, the “signs” are a collection of unrelated events, and endtimers are going to die regular deaths like every other person on the planet. Christians wanting to go to heaven while seeking to avoid the prerequisite step are acting against the central doctrine of their faith. Even Jesus had to do the whole death and resurrection thing.

Get a grip.
