I had to take a moment and re-post this funny and great blog. As people know, I have asked and had conversations regarding the end of the world that is apparently happenning on December 21st. Thank you for this great post!!!!!

Here are a few reasons why:
Why are we banking predictions of the future on a civilization that couldn’t predict its own demise? Yes, it’s still a mystery and archeologists aren’t sure what necessarily caused it, but it certainly happened quickly. You’d think a big disaster might have been something they could foretell. That is, if they ever claimed to be
