I started to post this on the thread about the 70AD prophecy,then decided not to possibly hijack it and instead post here.So here goes.

All you need to know about how silly the idea of the end times is, is this.Most end times prophecy,without going into great detail,is based around the idea of a final 7 year period of a prophecy from the book of Daniel still to be fulfilled.(google Daniel's 70 weeks for those interested in the details).But the prophecy makes clear that all the 490 years (70 weeks of years) should have already passed.Why?Because the starting point for the prophecy can be no later than 444 BC.It is based around the delivering of a decree to rebuild Jerusalem,and the last decree doing this was given in 444 BC.Obviously more than 490 years have past since that decree has been issued.So what gives with the end times folks and this problem?Ah,watch and learn the mind of a fundie Christian.According to Hal Lindsey,who is the guru emeritus on all things end times,God decided to "stop the stopwatch" after the 483rd year of the prophecy.Thhhaaattt'ss right folks!The 483rd year of the prophecy occurred sometime around Christ's time,the 484th has not yet started.Novel approach,no?When the countdown to a prophecy isn't going as it should for your belief,you simply stop counting.Until you want to start counting again.Evidently God didn't get the plan worked out exactly right in 444 BC,so He simply put the prophecy on hold.

And there you have it boys and girls.Never doubt the ability of a conservative literalist Christian to be able to twist and manipulate the Scriptures they claim to believe in LITERALLY.Except,of course,when their beliefs do not literally jibe with what Scripure says.Then all bets are off.

By the way,I am going out on a limb and predicting the election of a woman President in 2 1/2 years.If it doesn't occur in 2012,then obviously the stopwatch was stopped,and will begin ticking again at some future time.I imagine I will be able to tell exactly when it started reticking on,oh say,the Wednesday after a woman is elected in November.I'll get back to you on this.
