Wait…my Calendar for 2011…it…ENDS! It comes to an end December 31! It’s NOW the day AFTER the Calendar ends!

That must mean…it’s the end of time! The world’s going to end! AIIIIIIEEEE! Pray to God for forgiveness! Hide in storm cellars till the Earth explodes so you can say goodbye to loved ones! Eat food that’s too fattening for you! RUN FOR THE HILLS!

What? Where? Oh–there? A 2012 Calendar?

Oh I see it. Oh. Okay. But wait. The 2012 Calendar ends on next December 31! NOOOOOOOO! That must mean–the end of time!

What? Oh.

But…wait. That calendar ends on…

2012, ends of worlds, New Age Spirituality etc

The Mayan calendar–there are still Mayans around and they say that ‘Mayan calendar predicts end of the world’ stuff is all wrong. It’s like someone found a Rigid Tools calendar for the year 2011 and: “Look! It ENDS in DECEMBER! That means the world ends in December!” No, you numbskull, that CALENDAR PERIOD ends in December.

Indeed –New Age spirituality, if it is spirituality at all, with its channelers and its “The Secret” and its aromatherapies, and its vibrating tuning forks placed on chakras, and its egregious simplifications and misinterpretations of esoteric traditions and its outright fabrications…is like a bad radio signal coming through a crappy transistor radio with a broken antenna. Mostly static.
