Why John McCain Would Have Been a One-Term President

As a Bildeberg-Trilateralist he knew the world was going to end in December 2012 in accordance with the Mayan prophecy. David’s interesting post on the mysterious waste of money that are the Georgia “Guidestones” mentioned how some conspiracy theorists think the secret society that (obviously) created them will induce cataclysm in 2012. Honestly, I can’t fathom how people believe this stuff, but then again I’m an Illuminatus. Just in time to respond to the Guidestone schlock is a Slate article by Ron Rosenbaum about the whole end-of-the-world idiocy. Rosenbaum says this about appropriating pre-Columbian end-time prophecies:

The best cultural explanation I found for this flowering of idiocy said that New Age fads like the Hopi prophecy and [Mayan] 2012 are a kind of cultural colonialism in which white people endow the minorities they have wiped out or repressed with mystical powers made more mysterious by their virtual vanishing.

We killed them so that they live on in our memories, frightening the most gullible amongst us.
