Sign of the Apocalypse #35: (Crazy) talk of the coming Apocalypse

Until now, most of our Signs of the Apocalypse have centered on the absurdity of our popular culture, from the phenomenon of Brangelina (admittedly, an attractive SOTA) to Britney's motherhood to the scientological madness of Tom Cruise and his new family to such icons of degradation as Paris Hilton, Mariah Carey, Michael Jackson, Diddy or Puffy or whatever the hell he's calling himself these days, the Donald and the Martha and their apprenticeship programs, Ashton and Demi, Anna Nicole, and Ryan Seacrest, not to mention such mind-boggling trends as designer vaginas and Holocaust performance art.

Check out the complete list over on the right sidebar.

But what if a glaring Sign of the Apocalypse is all the current talk of the Apocalypse? As Echidne sees it, we may very well be witnessing a return to the Middle Ages. Here's her response:

We have television news talking about this stuff SERIOUSLY!!!!

What happened to the Enlightenment? Did we ever even have it? And how do you live in a medieval society without going totally crazy?

Let me try to answer those three questions:

1) The Enlightenment? What Enlightenment?

2) I'm not sure. I've read about it and I've studied it, and I think it happened, but evidently it was just a passing phase.

3) I have no idea. Maybe just give in and go crazy like everyone else? Or maybe move to Canada.

Losing your mind yet?
