That Pesky Apocalypse

“Our earth is degenerate in these latter days. There are signs that the world is speedily coming to an end. Bribery and corruption are common.” -writings found on Assyrian clay tablets, circa 2800 BC (Book of Facts by Isaac Asimov)

Latter days? Corruption and degeneration? The frequency and ubiquity of this theme in the social milieu of modern conservative religion would be difficult to overstate. Hence my interest at seeing the same sentiment expressed in the ancient medium of clay writing some 5,000 years ago.

In my own relatively short stint in corporeal existence, I’ve heard a constant, rumbling undertone of world-ending, Jesus-coming, apocalyptic anticipation, with occasional attribution to specific world events–from Soviet communism, to Y2K, to the invasion of Iraq, and most recently to the quirky end times predictions of Harold Camping. [Correction: the judgment day did actually occur on May 21, 2011, as predicted by Harold Camping...it was just invisible.] (more…)

Monckton Australian Tour

Apocalypse? NO! ‘Global Warming’ is Not a Global Crisis

Christopher Monckton, Viscount Monckton of Brenchley, has accepted an invitation to visit Australia for a major lecture tour on the theme Apocalypse? NO! ‘Global Warming’ is Not a Global Crisis in late January to early February 2010. He will be accompanied by his wife Juliet, Viscountess Monckton of Brenchley.

Professor Ian Plimer, who will also accompany Lord Monckton on his whirlwind tour of the mainland’s capital cities starting in Sydney on January 26 and finishing in Perth on February 8, says: “Although I modestly state that I am a good performer, Lord Monckton is superb. I have seen him fielding a very hostile BBC and other networks.  He has the ability to change thinking.”

Given that a “Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme” is unnecessary and would be harmful, it is critical that the public gets a chance to hear a globally-recognised presenter give a clear, rational explanation of the issue before the Australian Parliament votes on ETS again. Lord Monckton is the ideal person to carry out this task, and also to put the case to the mass media.
