It tells the power of your love,
We rejoice in the beauty of your world,
From the seas to the heavens above!"
Ahh! All those honest, God-fearing Church go-ers would instantly recognize this hymn. But how many of us still believe that we would be singing this on 21-12-2012 ?
If you are one of those gullible believe-all who actually place any value in these Doomsday prophecies that have been doing the rounds since 'God-knows-when' era, well we honestly suggest 'JUST RELAX'.
The Internet is filled with the so-called "informative" titbits that have created a huge hysteria. From movies to books to actual "last Day" parties, the world is going gaga planning for something that's as baseless as myths can get. All humbug! We wonder if its Christmas or Halloween again, eh!
Who needs to fear the most about this impending disaster awaiting to consume the world?
Diaper-clad infants who haven't even ventured into the world? naaah
Those guitar-strumming, dreamy eyed tweens? naah.
The grey-haired grandpa's and grannies stooped by ages of wisdom ? naah.
The terrorists whose future exploits can be foiled if the Catastrophe occurs? naah.
The melee of Hollywood artists who stand to loose much if the solar flares decide to particularly hit those nagging Papparazzi? well naaah again!
Enough of this guessing game.
Its certainly Santa and his round-the-clock, communist style working army of dedicated Elves amigos! Whoof, it took some real air off the lungs to say it aloud.
Imagine what would Santa do if the world ended before Christmas? We wouldn't want to imagine that at all. If there's a myth that the world wants to hold onto tightly it is the Spirit of Christmas, filled with mistletoes, stockings, reindeers and Santa jumping down the chimneys to drop your gift.
The Doomsday Cult is a belief in "Apocalypticism and Millenarianism", referring to prophesies of catastrophe and destruction. Sure, Mel Gibson and Nicholas Cage have told us about that enough.
Most of us have heard and shushed the outlandish theories that have been floated on the Web. But sorry to say neither the Mayans nor is Nostradamus worth any sweating over; the world would have died a hundred deaths by now if only the world did not have some sense of humor!!
What rings a bell right now are the words of Groucho Marx "I intend to live forever, or die trying". So taking a leaf out of his book, why not celebrate this 'Ghost-in-the-graveyard' event with some music and oomph-filled theme party.
We list here a "Must Have Music" for the ones who come calling to your self- styled Armageddon Bash:
1. End of the World As We Know it by REM
2. The Final Countdown by Europe
3. Stairway to Heaven by Led Zepplin
4. End of the World by Skeeter Davies
5. End of the World by U2
So here's to the Mayans, Nostradamus, Asteroids, pole reversals and Solar flares. Come what may the world goes on...
