Another Apocalypse has come and gone

Eventually people will learn that the end of the world can't really be predicted, except possibly with science.  In all honesty, this Apocalypse seemed even sillier than most of the ones in the past.  I'm sure some people are feeling foolish today, although they're probably trying to justify why they were wrong...that's what always seems to happen.
On another note, the events in my novel The Opium of the People were supposed to have been set up by a near miss with a comet on Dec. 21, 2012.  I'm very happy to say that I was not prophetic.  The idea of living in a world like the one I created in the novel would make me wish for the end of the world.

I was asked to write a story about the Mayan Apocalypse for Bubonicon this year. Like you, I'm glad my predictions didn't come true! I predicted December 21 would be the day rats became the dominant species on the planet!

Amen to that!
