This post-hoc nonsense drove a wedge between my rational and religious mind when I was still a Christian, I started recognizing post-hoc reasoning and rejecting it, as well as rejecting these prophetic peddlers.

So maybe I should thank these con-artists for giving me an example of religious fallacies and how I no longer wanted to affiliate myself with these clowns or the weird post-hoc based religion they were part of.

> When I was in first grade of Mt. Carmel School a nun told the class that the world was going to end in the year 2000, and for that reason we should strive to be pure Catholics because the end would come within our lifetimes. To this day, I have no idea how she arrived at that prediction. Huh

Meanwhile, Billy Graham's daughter Anne is predicting the eclipse will usher in the apocalypse and the second coming. The coming days ahead will be such a disappointment for this silly woman.

When I shake my ignore file, I can hear them buzzing!

My cousins will start their "24 hour prayer vigil" at 1:15 PM CDT today. That should stop the eclipse in its tracks. Drinking Beverage

A nice round number. Convincing people that "the end is near" is a good way to encourage certain behaviors for the short run, it certainly worked for Paul and the early Christians.

RE: Prophetical Eclipse and Trump
You think that's funny, I'm listening to the news. Apparently in Oregon they think that if you are not wearing tin foil hats you will be slaves to 'Them'.
The reporter was like "I'm not sure who 'Them' are, but okay."

One place they said, "We have clear skies here, but sadly no tin foil hats."

I laughed, really hard. I love people like that. Laugh out load

"Governments don't want well informed, well educated people capable of critical thinking That is against their interests.
They want obedient workers people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork And just dumb enough to passively accept it."

RE: Prophetical Eclipse and Trump
Sorry Jim Bakker, but instead of the eclipse being a sign of God's judgment, it was a time when a random neighbor knocked on my door and gave me vegetables!

It was a festive, friendly time with neighbors who don't even know each other laughing and smiling and enjoying the wonder of it all.

Informed by science. Inspired by art. Motivated by compassion.
