The Apocalype, 2012, Antichrist, Illuminati, Aliens, Planet Niburu - What relevance does it have to my life, really?

The Humanitarian Burden

For as long as Man has existed there has been questions asked - who we are, where we came from and where we are heading. Many believe in the big-bang theory, others believe in the Adam & Eve. The truth is we will probably never know in our time. But what is true is that throughout the years we have shown evidence that we have developed as a race and we continue to do so. So let us continue to be a part of it.

Everybody loves a conspiracy. I think it's pretty certain to say that most of us are intrigued by the "mystery of the unknown" because it allows us to think free and conclude an opinion of our own. This is healthy and I would encourage anyone else do so. However, in saying that I would also like to challenge others as to what relevance it actually has in ones life.

There's no doubt about it, the end of the world will happen. Whether it be tomorrow, 2012, or in a thousand years time it's fact that the World as we know it will cease to exist. We can all pretty much agree on that.

Yes, we will experience major changes in 2012 in terms of weather patterns and climate. This has already been speculated for thousands of years and proven more recently. It's nothing to be afraid of. It may cause many natural disasters and deaths but it's nothing we can't recover from. We will simply be entering a new age as we have done on numerous occasions throughout time. History has shown records and evidence of natural disasters large enough to wipe out a whole race and age - the Earth is just doing it's thing.

"The government are evil!" "They are rich and we are poor!" "They have power and we don't!"

This, again, unfortunately is also true. For as long as civilisation has been present there has been hierarchy. This is fact! Kings, Queens, Prime-Ministers and Presidents have ruled as a minority over the majority because that is the only system we have ever had and will always have till we cease to exist. And there's not much we can do about it.

"Aliens are on Earth!" "We have made contact with Aliens!" "There's loads of UFO's here and there!"

Most likely, there are other beings in the universe and yes, they probably have made contact with us at some point throughout history... and? So what! We can expect it right!

"God and Satan!"

Whether you're Christian, Islamic, Buddhist, Hindu or Athiest the question about God, Satan and the existence of heaven or hell remains unknown. Maybe there is a God, maybe there isn't. But the real question I want to ask is... what relevance does it have to me and my life when all I want to do is live a good happy one?

Hello, writing friend.
I read this with considerable interest, for there is much that resonates. I have nothing to add concerning religion, but I do comment upon hierarchy. This must be acknowledged, of course. But I have experienced a wealth of suffering, so for me acceptance is not an option at present.
Our health service, I have no doubt, would prefer me to be silent. But while the nurturer in me prevails, I shall never shrink from attempting to rectify all the assaults witnessed upon myself and so many fellow patients earlier this year.
I do wish my life were peaceful. But no, it is not. I am a flame-haired protectress, and I shall never surrender.
Thank you :-)

I a humanest , a freind of mine , who hapans to be a belever in Mohamed . Shortly after we began talking , he askde me '' are you a Christan? '' . He did not ask in an aquseing way. '' No mate'' , '' I am a humanest '' . He went quet '' wgats is a humanest , please? '' . I replied: '' I believe , in your humanity has I believe in yours ''. A few months later while we talking , out of the blue my friend said: '' Now I know what a humanest is'' , and resumed our conversation. Now I like to think , I'd shown my friend through our conversations just what a humanest is.

Good write, Richard...

I'm an atheist and truly believe that the concept of God was
created by man to explain things man can't explainl...

God forbid we should admit to our ignorance

Keep writing and thinking


As someone who has gone from Christianity to Buddhism to Atheism back to Christianity and then to a kind of Pantheism, I have often asked myself that very question. I think you've hit the nail on the head when you wonder whether religion really matters. Maybe God (or the gods) really do exist. Does it really matter that much? Could I just as well believe in Santa Claus or the Glenda the Good Witch?

I've come to believe that what matters is trying to make this life right here on Planet Earth work. Hey, if the gods want to help out, then that's fine.

I really liked your essay. Keep up the good work and keeping the wonder and the wondering.
