Shake me up baby!

The christians, well some of them, are waiting for the coming of their smelly dirty jewish messiah (I don’t imagine cleanliness was high on the agenda back in the year dot). They want so much for the world to end, for all the sinners to be cast into hell that they are on the look out for signs.

Luke 21 talks about signs for the end of the age – it matters not that the signs are common occurances, but you know, that’s ok.

Here are the signs:

There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.

Wow, earthquakes – how interesting! This is a great one to latch on to. Earthquakes happen every day, hundreds, and every now and then we get a big one. Now, there’s nothing in Luke that says there will be a lot of extra earthquakes, just great earthquakes, but some of our dear deluded christians have noticed an increase in earthquakes.1  Therefore the end of the world is nigh.  Jesus is coming again.  Alas, they always fail to understand that the science of detecting quakes and their strength has been growing over the last 100 years.  So while the records have been more accurate as the technology changes, this is not an indication that there have been more quakes.  The common source of the information comes from the USGS site that clearly states, at the top of the page:

Selected earthquakes of general historic interest.

Wow, famines – how interesting! There are hungry people in the world.  Jesus must be on the way back.  Oh, and look, some of the hungry people in the world also have earthquakes.  Double whammy.

…food shortages continue because many people do not have enough money to buy food or land on which to raise crops. In developing countries, well over a billion people have to live on an income of a dollar or less a day. The majority of these suffer from chronic hunger2

I wonder if they see a link.  Food is short, no money, chronic hunger, no crops.  It would seem to me that the barrier here is that you have lots of money and lots of food and they have none.  It’s within your power to fix this problem, and I would have thought that the word of your bastard god would be enough for you to understand you must feed the poor. Give them some money to feed themselves.  You know, share.  (arseholes)

Wow, pestilence. There are sick people, science can’t seem to find a cure for sick people, there’s an awful lot of them, there’s HIV/AIDS, swine flu, cholera, bird flu.  Oh, and look, poor people seem to get sick, they also live in earthquake country and have no money or food so can’t remain fit and healthy because of the famine.  But don’t worry, it’s a sign that jesus is coming back, so we can’t help you because jesus is coming back and we really want that to happen.

Then there’s the fearful events and great signs from heaven.   There’s the attack on the world trade centre, there’s the ongoing terrorist threat, there’s global warming, there’s earthquakes, famine and pestilence.  There’s comets, planets lining up, threat of meteors landing on us, all from the heavens

And on and on it goes,  people of faith who think they can predict when their sweet baby jesus is coming back, based on signs that happen every day for hundreds of thousands of years, do nothing to help those in need.  They are so busy looking out for the signs, making sure they’ve said their prayers, that they simply can’t see the truth.

The world is the way it is because of dumb fucks like you.  Stop shoving the food in your face, stop saving the money to buy things, and get out and actually do something to help those in need.  Jesus will love you for it.
