In a few days time the legend that the world will end on 21st December will be seen as a falsehood, a piece of folklore attributed to the Mayan of long ago, but now said to be the work of others for reasons unknown. Unless something dreadful happens in the coming days, the year 2012 will end without the expected apocalypse.Even in these so-called sophisticated times, we are still drawn to the mysteries of the ancients and while established religions are on a downward trend, the world of the supernatural has also been embraced, with films, TV shows and books satisfying a worldwide audience. The interest in unworldly phenomenon crosses age, race and the class divide, but why is it that today it is only the truly faithful who accept the miracles of Jesus as fact, while the rest of us treat them with cynicism , but will readily accept the existence of alien beings from Outer Space?
Are there beings out there that not only know of our existence, but have visited us, even move amongst us? Could there really be an outer world order that controls us? I haven’t a clue and I am not aware that any evidence exists of such a conspiracy. As for December 21st......well, there’s no harm in packing a few sandwiches and replacing the torch batteries, just in case!
