    Remember, this country was formed by original settlers who were men and women of deep religious convictions. In many ways, they were extremists. So, you could say that it's in our blood to believe in all sorts of crazy 'world will end' type prophecies. We should expect that a good percentage of these CNN comments/posts will reflect this sort of thinking. And btw, you shouldn't fight it. It's not going away any time soon.

    how many people that read your comment do you honestly think understood it. was this just an attempt to simply show people your outstanding knowledge of science? the understanding of things that are spiritual are very simply understood by people who have yielded their thoughts to something that is above themselves, and by examining the bible and it's prophesies revealed to to them fulfilled, have reached the understanding that it is truth. science has not yet proven it untrue but more true the further it goes. peace within yourself cannot be found elsewhere. but again this can only be experienced through yielding of yourself to something greater than yourself, I think the problem lies there quite
    simply in order to understand.
