Is This the Afterlife?

So, no Apocalypse, huh? If you had big post-humanity plans, bummer.

If you, like many others, kept your head as the Mayan Long Count Calendar came to its long-awaited end, then the winter solstice of 2012 was simply an opportunity.

Some folks held huge parties.  That the party took place in a gigantic nuclear Cold War Doomsday bunker was just fortunate happenstance.

Some folks stocked up on the essentials.

Even the Vatican, whose stock in trade is belief in what some would call the unbelievable, will tell anyone that predictions of the end of the world aren't worth discussing.  That's the Vatican's own head astronomer, Rev. Jose Funes, saying that.

Okay, I was going to make a link taking you to a couple of references I found to Funes, but they took me to a site called "Falling Angels," which is full of utter nutjobs.  People insisting that the ancient Sumerian planet "Nibiru" is real and is where Lucifer is assembling his army, that reptiles are Satanic and that - oh, what the heck.  I can't swallow enough bile to keep repeating what these idiots are saying.

You can bet they are disappointed the world didn't end.
