December 21, 2012


It is a paradox of modern life that pseudoscience thrives amidst accelerating scientific knowledge, widespread literacy, and powerful teacher's unions.  As you are reading this, The-End-Is-Near-Nuts-V2012 are now licking their collective wounds that resulted from the world having not come to an end on December 21, 2012. Their great disappointment in our continued existence is a small source of pleasure for many of us (as well as a few good jokes on late-night shows).

As with the prior versions of The-End-Is-Near, the pattern will be for the spokesmen to make a few irrational-rationalizations explaining away their error.  Then some charismatic will start afresh with a new version of a peculiar brand of nonsense which will inevitably find a strong market with the media and a few true believers.

In the meantime, have a happy (and rational) New Year.
