2012: A Dose of Sanity

The other day I was driving to work listening to one of my favorite radio talk shows and the topic was how many people really believed the world was heading for some kind of tragic demise in 2012. Of course this was all prompted because of the new movie release 2012. At first it was all rather funny but then a couple of Christians called in and began to put the pieces together for everyone giving precise dating for the end of the world as supported by the Bible--and as it turns out their dates coincided with 2012! Other callers talked about the "facts" of the earth's poles being reversed or the alignment of planets in 2012 which will surely create some catastrophic events. Neither the Bible nor science offer any support for the scenarios played out in the movie. So, I offer here four minutes of sanity.
