Maya calendar workshop documents time beyond 2012

Maya calendar workshop documents time beyond 2012, article.

It's funny how people love doomsdays. They come and go every few years. I guess daily life as a human simply doesn't have enough things to be afraid of!

People like dommsdays because they WANT their crappy, miserable lives to end, but they don't want to actually do it themselves.

Yeah, everybody wants to go to Heaven, but nobody wants to die. ;-p

It's true, you know. Here in Lebanon, today we're on the brink of restarting a civil war, and yet every time things vaguely cool down, people obsess again about doomsday, prophecies, and other gala-gala (mumbo-jumbo).

Methinks some people are ADDICTED to their own misery. If they didn't have any, they'd hasten and make up some.
And methinks this is the fault of poor parental upbringing. It made them similarly believe in a stern God of fear instead of Love, so that's the only way they know to make sense of the Cosmos.
