Scary scenarios (2) the Armageddon syndrome


(Canscene) — Christian fundamentalists stick by the Bible’s every word, even the hallucinatory Book of Revelations, which predicts that before the second coming of Jesus Christ the world will be consumed by Armageddon, a battle between the forces of good and evil.

It follows then that to get their pie in the sky they’re willing to see mass destruction on an unprecedented global scale. One might cast a jaundiced eye on belief in such prophecies but the scary part is that interpreters of the so-called revelation have always placed the battle in the Middle East.

Beware the self-fulfilling prophecy!

    If it’s a colossal battle between the forces of Good and Evil that is scary, I think we’re safe for now, Ben. I don’t see any forces for Good in the Middle East at present.
