What's Next?

Some people tend to move from apocalypse to apocalypse and it can be a bit unnerving. It would be easy enough to avoid them, but they can be downright pervasive on social media. Of course, the recent eclipse was cited as a world-ending event, and it came and went just like every eclipse before it. It almost seemed like some of the faithful were disappointed that hell on earth didn't happen. This is where they gather up a teensy bit of knowledge and a whole lot of suspicion and set the next date.

Things Are Crazy

It is sometimes hard to remember that we have a different perspective living in the bible belt. We see many more of these things pop up than an average person. We were absolutely surrounded by people and posts claiming that the 8th was it. Interestingly enough, there is an online Wikipedia of "List of dates for predicted apocalyptic events" and this past Monday didn't even rate high enough to be included! Even crazier, as the world has become smarter, we're actually getting MORE predictions rather than less, even though we should know better by now.

The Next Big Date

The next date being passed around is April 23rd, but...not only is it unlikely, it is a date that the world was supposed to end in 2018. Yes, it's actually an old recycled meme about "the planet Nibiru" being revealed and yada, yada, yada.

Remember This Moment

Remember all of the crazies that you let make you nervous this time, and just don't listen to them next time. They will always set a date like it's a vacation, when it's just their own vacation from reality. Here's a little quote from a book called "the Bible".

“However, no one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself. Only the Father knows. Mathew 24:36

I'm not very religious anymore, but I can read. And the bible itself says no one knows when times up, so that's exactly who you should listen to, and that's no one.

Texans Reveal What Should Really Be Taught In Public School

When I look back on my education in Texas, I remember vast amounts of my precious time spent learning things that never helped me in real life- particularly how to take a standardized test. Instead of wasting our children's time, what should be taught in Texas schools?
