  • As we approach the "end of the world" predicted by the Mayan calender, I wanted to throw out some questions: 
    If I don't have the education you have, does that make me ignorant? 
    If my religious beliefs are different than yours, does that make me less worthy of salvation? 
    If I voted for the person you dislike, does that make me a danger to the whole country and the ideals you hold dear? 
    If I think  globally on environment, human dignity and need, does that make me a left-wing nut?
    The Mayans believed that about every 26,000 years their Gods got tired of the old model of human they had made because they never turned out to be what was expected. 
    So they destroyed them and made a new model. 
    Maybe there really is something to this Mayan Calendar thing.
