Nostradamus Speaks Again

My mom just told me the latest prophecy from my insane aunt: She will have to start using her food storage on Wednesday, May 7, 2008 at 5:00 PM. Of course my family, starting with my uncle who thinks the end of the world is nigh and ending with my mom, believe that means that we will be having an earthquake. I just thought I'd put that on the record and I will also say that it's a load of crap.

A great commentary on this sort of thing, and backed by scriptural authority (the only true consensus authority on all things doctrinal, aside from being in the Quorum of the Twelve) can be found in Stephen E. Robinson's book "Following Christ", pp. 104-108. The section is called "Revelation by Rumor?" in a chapter called "Hazards to Endurance". The entire chapter (and book, for that matter) is very good, and easy read, and is doctrinally sound.

...for what it's worth.

5:00PM? Good. Glad to see calamities are in line with the American work day.

I can only hope this one isn't as bad as the last. That Y2K really shut society down for a while there.

It is a relief. I could maybe even be home by the time the disaster hits. Of course, when you combine this upcoming disaster with her last prophecy, The Great Wheat Shortage of 2008, you could have the end of society as we know it.

Of course, we could also go about life as usual.
