Economic Question, Religious in nature
Has anyone come across something to this extent, ie:

"The US/world economy is coming to an end. The dollar will be replaced with xxx/yyy, and it was foretold in the bible!"

Or

"Satan is at work. Once the dollar goes away, everyone will have RFID chips in their body, which is the mark of the beast"


Economics 101. You cannot have growth without a recession. You can't have a recession without growth.

All the time >.> This is just people who have no idea about economics trying to suggest they understand the problem. It's a common reaction to fear to find an answer to the problem, and our current society cultivates fear. The media has become quite the tyrant creating a way of life that feeds on fear. Fear is what keeps the media moguls going, because it is fear that keeps everyone's attention.

In the US problems that aren't really necessary to answer are discussed all of the time, and fringe groups with fake answers are heard prominently. This has lead to a huge amount of small cults and the desire for the average person to become the new messiah. Everyone wants to have the answer and solve the problem, but they forget that sometimes it's not even important that the question be answered. We can live fine without having an answer to every detail of life.

I'm not a non believer, I believe in the possibility of anything. I just don't let the actuality of something be determined by a 3rd party.

All of those statements are irrelevant and meaningless. But if they get media attention - along with two dozen other meaningless and irrelevant pronouncements - they'll drown out any intelligent [booooo-ring!] analyses given by people who are actually qualified to comment.
It's a hallmark of our popular culture that all opinions have equal value and the uninformed public gets to choose on the basis of volume or venue, accent or connections or hairstyle.

If you pray to anything, you're prey to anything.
