I thought I would kick-off the 2013 blogging on this channel with a little poll, one that I haven’t exactly seen elsewhere but which might be quite interesting as an experiment. After all, even though the Lord Jesus himself tells us that no man knows the time, there is also a saying “vox populi vox Dei” or “the voice of the people is the voice of God”. So could it be that collectively mankind knows when the end of the world is coming?
In fact, probably not. Was the voice of the people the voice of God when the crowd yelled “Crucify him!”? Hard to say – on the one hand it had to be this so that the prophesies could be fulfilled. In the case of this poll, the only prophesy to be fulfilled will probably be that nobody knows the day nor the hour, which means that our consensus, if the is one, will probably turn out to be hopelessly wrong.
Worth doing anyway, just as a barometer reading or where people feel we are now in human history? If you think so please vote below – the key is to pick which of the numbers of years we now have left before the end of the world. A broad variety of numbers have been included to cater for optimists and well as pessimists (although which end of the scale is the optimistic one I leave for you to decide).
Enjoy! And as ever, (spam-free) comments and discussion is very welcome.
