    My favourite apocalypse is Ragnarok.

    I feel thoroughly depressed reading most of it.


    What do you believe will happen ...[text shortened]... n tribe feel about catching the train/iron snake? Anyone know anything about Sikh eschatology?
    So you would like the end of days to be palatable for your taste or even enjoyable? I think all would have to agree that there is an end game, so to speak, with our solar system, with our galaxy, and eventurally with the universe, but most importantly, with our lives. Science dictates that one day the sun will expand and engulf the entire earth before it collapses on itself and dies. Perhaps this is not romantic enough for you so I will turn the lights down and whisper something in your ear......God is in control and he is life and therefore he is our only hope for continued life after all that mess is finished.

    There now, do you feel better?

    For an accurate dramatization of Christian eschatology, refer to this cinematic classic:

    A Thief in the Night (1972)
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0070795/

    If you can find this movie anywhere, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND you rent it immediately and watch it with an open mind and heart. It WILL change your life.

    You know your right. After rereading my post I feel a little creeped out as well. Then again, who is to say that the poster is not some 20 year old Californian blond girl?

    According to daoism (which ties in with the bigbang theory) the cosmos is a bellow, it exhales (now) and inhales (the end), the exhalation will then start the cycle all over again, so there is no end.

    Was Columbus practicing eschatology when he wrote his observations of October 12, 1492 on the evening of October 11? He certainly prescribed an apocalypse.

    I think "devine" eschatology is superstitious nonsense. I mean Jesus returning from heaven and leading the good against evil in the final great conflict? It's as silly as those "Left Behind" stories. Now "ethical" eschatology could make sense. The idea that adherence to the "Word of God" will eventually dispatch evil is an idea that I find very appealing.

    Appealing? Perhaps. But true? That's quite another matter.

    The thought of me winning the lottery is very appealing. But that doesn't make it true, or mean that it will happen.

    Not all versions of the Big Bang theory postulate an endless repeating cycle.

    Leviticus 18:6-10

    "None of you shall approach any blood relative of his to uncover nakedness. . . . You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father’s wife; it is your father’s nakedness. The nakedness of your sister, either your father’s daughter or your mother’s daughter, whether born at home or born outside, their nakedness you shall not uncover. The nakedness of your son’s daughter or your daughter’s daughter, their nakedness you shall not uncover; for their nakedness is yours."
