Don’t Worry, the World Isn’t Actually Ending in 10 Days

with 2 comments

So says a Vatican astronomer:

The Vatican’s top astronomer has some assurances to offer: The world won’t be ending in 10 days, despite predictions to the contrary.

The Rev. Jose Funes, director of the Vatican Observatory, wrote in Wednesday’s Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano that “it’s not even worth discussing” doomsday scenarios based on the Mayan calendar that are flooding the Internet ahead of the purported Dec. 21 apocalypse.

Yes, Funes wrote, the universe is expanding and if some models are correct, will at one point “break away” — but not for billions of years. But he said Christians profoundly believe that “death can never have the last word.”

  1. Then again…………………….. something may start to happen slowly and then BAM! One never knows, does one, hummmmmmm?
    Remember the ‘HARMONIC CONVERGENCE? The day came and went and 2 years later,,,, all the Communist nations in Eastern Europe collapsed. Coincidence? I think not!

  2. Judgement Day can be any day from this point on. It may be later, it may be tomorrow, it may be 100 years from now.

    Only God the Father knows this! The only thing we can do is be prepared regardless. Be like a soldier, be always ready. The Kingdom of God is at hand.
