I typed in my address wrong I switched the p and the s like so: “www.khalidarkmoon.blogpsot.com” and got a weird bible study page. I giggled, because of my own current religious status which, officially is “undecided” and disillusioned with organised religion on the whole, though there is certainly no lack of curiosity.
I watched the beginning of that TV series Revelations last night out of pure curiosity. It was on after the Yellowstone Volcano TV movie. (What is it with America and the slew of Armageddon/Apocalypse and huge natural disaster movies and books these days?) Anyway, I watched “Revelation” because I’m intrigued. I think it’s the only book in the bible that I’ve actually read the whole way through – aside from Daniel. I read some reviews of the show online and it seems that people either love it or hate it, and most of the reasoning seems to come from a religious standpoint. I.e. “I hate it because christians are whackos” or “This is a great show, you should watch it because then you’ll see that the end really is near” yadda yadda… I linked the one review I thought was less biased either way.
I watched it purely with interest, in much the same fashion I watched the 4400 and X-Files and even Star Trek – the “what if” stance. My motto, which comes from all my fiction workshops is “suspend your disbelief” for the duration and then make a judgment. Of course, I’m not sure if I can buy Bill Pullman as someone who can avert the Apocalypse, but I’m willing to go along for the ride just the same.
But all along, I couldn’t help thinking what would happen if the end really did happen, and judgment day came along and god said: “sorry guys, you had it wrong all along. I’m going to reincarnate you now.”
Now, I’m going to read about encrypting email.
