As the day ends in the letter 'y' the religious lunatics are jumping up and down and today its because their book of plagiarised fairy stories are pointing to the end of the World. Again.
This time it's a few passages in the Bible and our moon which is about to become a 'super blue blood moon' which have alerted the God bothering crowd that the end is nigh once again because no matter how many times you are wrong you just keep predicting it anyway.
So how are we all going to die this time?
Several verses the Bible refer to a blood moon bringing about the end of days such as verse 6:12-14 in the Book of Revelations which reads:
'When he opened the sixth seal, I looked, and behold, here was a great earthquake and the sun became black as sackcloth, full moon became like blood and the stars of the sky fell to Earth as the fig tree sheds its winter fruit when shaken by a gale. The sky vanished like a scroll that is being rolled up and every mountain and island was removed from its place'.
All seems straight forward to me with the sky falling to Earth and all that but it is explained further in the Book of Acts 2:20, which says:
'The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord'.
That's pretty alarming stuff if you are gullible enough to believe it but as we seem to get a regular flow of Biblical prophecies and we are all still here doing all that sinning stuff i think it will be safe to ignore it and enjoy the spectacle of the blood super moon on Wednesday as i'm quietly confident that the world is unlikely to be ending as a result of it.
