Post -August 22: Armageddon tired of this

It is well past the fateful day of August 22, and the world is still here. It is still here just like it was on April 22, 1844, January 1, 2000, and, for that matter, September 12, 2001. Frank Zappa once said that there would be no nuclear war, because there was "too much real estate," probably referring to all the money the capitalists would lose from spoiled land. I tend to take more comfort about end-of-the-world worries from the following:

But as for that day and hour [the time when Heaven and Earth will pass away], nobody knows it, neither the angels of heaven, nor the Son, no one but the Father only. For in those days before the Flood people were eating, drinking, taking wives, taking husbands, right up to the day Noah went into the ark, and they suspected nothing until the Flood came and swept all away. It will be like this when the Son of Man comes.
- Matthew 24:36-39

You may be quite sure of this that if the householder had known at what time of the night the burglar would come, he would have stayed awake and would not have allowed anyone to break through the wall of his house.
- Matthew 24:43
