I have been studying Christianity now for a few months and I have found in Revelation (A book in the Bible) that the world is going to end soon. What are your thoughts?

I've lost count of the number of times the world was going to end. Really, it's been predicted so many times, and every time it doesn't happen, they come up with another excuse. For ****'s sake, study science you ******* loser.

Write a letter to the Pope and ask him about it.

@Joebro13243,
Could you cite your scriptural findings so I can see where you are coming from?

Perhaps you could compare these here
Ecclesiastes 1:4
Psalm 104:5

It is just his way of saying God is out of the question, and an insult to your intelligence. Keep what you have.

@Joebro13243,
Revelations was written 2,000 years or so ago. When it says the world will end "soon" that can mean one of two things: (1) the world will end in a generation; (2) the world will end in a few millenia. In the first case, if the Bible is in fact predicting "the end" in a couple generations, then the prediction, made shortly after the life of Christ, has clearly proven false. In the second case, the world may as well end in five millenia rather than two, so why believe the end is coming in the next twenty years?

I wouldn't sweat what you read in a collection of Bronze Age myths. If the original prediction had come true, we wouldn't be here to discuss it.

"Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled."

@FBM,
Thanks.

I only made it as far as the middle of Exodus, so I didn't know what the actual prediction was.

Clearly, it proved false then.

It's a fairytale, and fairytales don't have to make sense.

@Kolyo,
The part I quoted was from Luke, so the New Testament, long after Exodus. In any event, I wouldn't lose much sleep over end-times predictions. They've never panned out and have spawned doomsday cults that often wind up committing mass suicide. Jim Jones, et al. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Jones

Often when a predicted Armageddon date fails to materialise, membership of such cults actually increases.

Quote:
Social scientists have found that while some group members will leave after the date for a doomsday prediction by the leader has passed uneventfully, others actually feel their belief and commitment to the group strengthened. Often when a group's doomsday prophecies or predictions fail to come true, the group leader will simply set a new date for impending doom, or predict a different type of catastrophe on a different date. Niederhoffer and Kenner say: "When you have gone far out on a limb and so many people have followed you, and there is much "sunk cost," as economists would say, it is difficult to admit you have been wrong."

Try a less educated audience, the sort of audience who wouldn't spot such an execrable sentence.

Obviously Coldjoint was not included in my assessment. Nobody could ever accuse him of having had an education.

Clearly the world is going to end in a flame war that you unwittingly started.
