**Pretty sure this is going to go extremely religious - is or isn't there a God yada yada blah blah blah or it will go Anti-Obama why he's the worst president etc etc etc so prepare yourselves readers!**
It would be more difficult than worthwhile to respond non-religiously/non-politically when the context-punch is already spiked.
So I overheard an interesting conversation the other day. A gal asked, what if Obama is the second coming. Now again overhearing, here is what I gathered: the time coincides perfectly w/the end of the world in 2012 and his push to get health care coverage for everyone and wanting to give people a little more equality could be the Saviors way of showing us how selfish we are if we don't help the needy.
Now being this was an interesting spin on the Second Coming and Obama himself, what are peoples thoughts on this?
Right off the bat, your overheard conversation mistakes the end of one Mayan longcount cycle, (and the beginning of another), for the "end of the world" so, there's no coincidence there. It's unclear how putting additional financial/debt burdens on already strained government programs will provide more "equality" for people, (unless you mean, break the system so no one gets anything?). Finally, there aren't any attributable correlations between a new longcount cycle on a Mayan calendar which we no longer use, a healthcare plan which won't go into effect for some years and Obama as some vague conception of the "second coming".
