Survived and Smarter

I got way to worked up over the September 23rd end-of-the-world hysteria.  It was a mistake.  I see that now.  It is easy to get carried away with conspiracy theory and miss the point.  The conspiracy theorists are right and they are wrong.  There is kernels of truth in every conspiracy theory.  But there is also an agenda behind some and maybe all of them.

Watch and wait.  If the theorist is selling something like survival gear, take their advice to prepare for adverse circumstances with a grain (a BIG grain) of salt.  If they can scare you, they can sell you a solution. So-called religion also does this.  They lay out a certain course of destruction unless you drink their particular version of Kool-Aid.  If a religion says they are the only way to know God, they are deceivers.  If a religion teaches hate for any other group, they are deceivers. Be wary.
