Endtimes Techno-Boogie

PH and his boys have been busy this year.

The predominant message of the Roman Catholic Church is the message of peace. Furthermore, Catholic policy dictates that the pope dress in white. His helicopter, popemobile, and jet airplane are all white. If he had a horse, what color do you suppose it would be?

Disaster is all around us. Burma has sunk, retribution has found the Chinese, and twisters are destroying the midwest. It seems fairly obvious that we have (once again) reached the endtimes. Crazy talk, you say? A lot of people actually believe this sort of thing is likely to happen in their lifetimes.

On the other hand, actual religious authorities are getting more and more tolerant of the broader scientific worldview, and technology is changing the way we construct news and react to disasters. The ‘net, for better or worse, has made religious and scientific discussion endemic – and often interrelated.

It is the perogative of every religious generation to see itself as the one that will usher in the end of days; it’s natural – we all want to be part of something momentous. Now, I don’t see it that way myself, but am I the only one wondering how great hailstones would fare against reactive armor? Well… am I?
