What has caused people to change so much since the new millenium? people are more tense and to themselves?

Bottom line the bible says in the last days men will be lovers of themselves. It's just coming to past because Jesus is soon to return.

You've been saying "it's the last days", since Christianity was invented some 1700 years ago.
Forgive us for not holding our breaths, this time either.

In this context, 'soon' is anywhere from tomorrow until somewhere just before the heat death of the universe.

It's "coming to pass," not "past," and I suspect Godot will turn up on stage long before your Jesus will return.

"What has caused people to change so much since the new millenium? people are more tense and to themselves?"

It's because islam is about to triumph and the infidels are afraid because they know what's coming for them.

"Bottom line the bible says..."

So what? The bible says a lot of stupid stuff, and there's no reason to believe any of it is worth believing.

All right, who threw this asshole that softball question?

Reminds me of the BS Q&A from the Quem Quaeritis trope:

Question [by the Angels]: Whom do ye seek in the sepulcher, O followers of Christ?
Answer [by the Marys]: Jesus of Nazareth, the Crucified, O heavenly ones.
The Angels: He is not here; he is risen, just as he foretold. Go, announce that he is risen from the sepulchre. ... Yeah, that's the ticket! We're angels, not grave robbers! He just got up and walked! Now SCAT! (Modern version)

Bottom line the bible says...


The bible says your god would return within his disciples' lifetime. The really missed that one bigly yuge by about 1950 years.

2000 years of "any day now". And that's just Christianity.

I know I've been more tense since The X-Files ended.

No....it's because we have wingnuts like you making a bigger noise than and often getting elected or bigger influence.

That said; The fact that the haters and bigots are now fully-exposed and "out-in-the-open" may be a blessing-in-disguise....The saner folks may find it easier to fight and stop them. It's hard to fight evil when it's hidden.

I think what's going on lately is more a matter of "people being more open about being Fascist/bigots" as opposed to "more people are being turned-on to Fascism/bigotry".

Europe has been through guys like Hitler, Mussolini and Franco. This may be my impression of things, being a "Dumb American" and all...But most of Western Europe tends to have better education systems and hate speech is often curtailed. This is not a society where everyone would go "FASCISM: FUCK, YEAH!" (Eastern Europe is likely a different story, they come off to be as Europe's answer to "Dogpatch", they never could get the hang of this 'Progressivism/High Living Standards/Freedom & Equality' thing). I think the rising Far-Right is mostly kooks who were haters to begin with who just became more open and pushy about it.

I believe in the concept of "THE GREAT YEAR" (Be it Tropical Zodiac Equinox Procession/The Hindu Yuga Cycle according to Sri Yukteswar/Plato's Great Year....I see them as basically the same concept).....
I think, as the "Piscean Age/Kali Yuga/Platonic Winter" changes over to the "Aquarian Age/Dwapara Yuga/Platonic Spring", stuff like this must come to a crescendo. It's like heating metal ore and letting the slag surface so it can be skimmed off. There's social fears concerning terrorism, economic problems, etc. (The Heat) heating up the molten ore (humanity) and the slag's now surfacing (Wingnuts, Religious Nuts, Fascists, Bigots, Misogynists, etc.) and it will eventually be skimmed off (Progressive Activism and such).

Don't give me "soon." Give me a date. I may have to do some serious appointment juggling.

Soon as in "any minute now," or do I have time to run to the store?
