It's a business

As what should be my final comment on the Mayan (non)Prophecy, I will reiterate my view that this whole thing was manufactured by money making charlatans.

There was a nice article by Bruce Maiman in the Sacramento Bee last Sunday: Apocalyptic nightmares: Dire prophecies help some people profit from the doomsday dread. It concludes with the following:

Here's the real endgame I see in all of this: 2012 isn't a premonition, it's a business, fueled by fear, aided and abetted by the absence of logic, reason and critical thinking.

Don't believe me? Look around. The apocalyptic sales pitch is everywhere: Books, television, spiritual advice, tourist traps.

On sale is a magazine entitled, "Apocalyptic Prophesies." Inside, a cornucopia of Mayan calendar carnage. But on the cover, under the bar code, there is this notation: "Display until Feb. 11, 2013."

Somewhere, P.T. Barnum is smiling. And probably the Mayans, too.

Couldn't have said it better myself. Enjoy December 22nd. And the many days and years to come. And please - don't chain email the next apocalyse prediction to all your friends and acquaintances.
