50 Reasons Why We Are Living In The End Times (and other bathroom reading)

Found this fascinating blog called The Christ in Prophecy Journal--it was actually recommended to me by my Google Reader (why? because I subscribe to atheist sites?)

The latest post shows the 50 reasons for why we're living in end times; on the actual post he sites his reasoning (all Bible passages) but I removed them to save space. I've bolded my favorites. :-)

I know, look at the next one for television: 28) Television (Revelation 11:8-9)

8 Their bodies will lie in the street of the great city, which is figuratively called Sodom and Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified. 9 For three and a half days men from every people, tribe, language and nation will gaze on their bodies and refuse them burial.

Does he mean that we can look at the same dead bodies for three days like you can watch the same show on TV? If so, wouldn't he have more of an issue with photography and/or newspapers?
Honestly, this list is long but meaningless. People really always have waited for the end to come. They can't possibly think that there is more war now than any other time in world history. There's no world war going on now. Mostly war where there has been war for a long time, but nothing new.

I know a lot of religious people try to associate the changing of the earth and how f'd up it is acting on "the end of days is near" but they just see it as a sign and not a consequence of what we as a people have done to destroy it. The earth and the human body are very much alike as far as I can see. I'm no geologist or anatomist (probably didn't even spell them right). But I can see great similarites between the two that I think if more people realised, we (as a whole) would treat the earth much better. We (the Earth and Humans) are made up in much the same way even if you look at the percentage of water in the Earth to the percentage of water in people, for example. So when you get sick, your body, whether you ask it to or not, will take over and fight off the sickness. I think it is obvious that Earth is fighting the sickness off. So we get a fever, Earth has tsunamies, hurricanes, tornados, earthquakes, etc. It is (in my opinion) just trying to wash away the sickness. Not the end of the world, just a cleansing of the earth, air, and water.
