The Great Disappointment

The USA has denied Israel the use of certain weapons useful for their proposed attack on Iran. The Pentagon rationalizes that so-called bunker-busters could lead to a greater conflict along with permission for Israeli airplanes to cross Iraqi airspace alogn with re-fuleing privileges from USAF tankers. GW Bush is extremely upset with this decision for he only has another four more months to start armadgeddeon, thus sounding Gabriel’s godlen trumpet for the Second Comng of Chirst.

It’s the neo-con end of the world strategy, which fits into conservatives’ religious beliefs; ie Mormons, 7th Day Adventists, and Pentecostals. This apocalyptical addiction harkens back to the 1840s, when the preacher William Miller mathematized with the writings in daniel 8:14 that the world was coming to an end in the year 1843.

,”I was thus brought… to the solemn conclusion, that in about twenty-five years from that time 1818 all the affairs of our present state would be wound up.”[

“I believe that the second coming of Jesus Christ is near, even at the door, even within twenty-one years,–on or before 1843.”[

With the arrival of 1840 Millerism (no relation to the arcane practice of drinking Miller beer) gained popularity like the hula hoop and the doomdaysayer predicted the last day for sometimes between March 21, 1843 and March 21, 1844. This period passed with any cataclysm striking the earth and william Miller called for the final date to be October 22, 1844, except nothing happened then too.

This event became known as the Great Disappointment.

Billions of dollars.
