More evidence that secularism is becoming an actual religion, complete with the weird parts, from those too-sophisticated-for-Christiantity Europeans: Many Dutch prepare for 2012 apocalypse – UPI.com.
Thousands of people in the Netherlands say they expect the world to end in 2012, and many say they are taking precautions to prepare for the apocalypse.
The Dutch-language de Volkskrant newspaper said it spoke to thousands of believers in the impending end of civilization, and while theories on the supposed catastrophe varied, most tied the 2012 date to the end of the Mayan calendar, Radio Netherlands reported Monday.
De Volkskrant said many of those interviewed are stocking up on emergency supplies, including life rafts and other equipment.
The Mayan calendar ends in our 2012! So the world must end on that year! I wonder how those Mayans are supposed to have known that fact. And why all of these progressive descendants of Calvinists now put their trust in Mayan carvings.
