Prophesying the End of the Doomsayers

With the disillusioned anticlimax regarding the end of the world, I want to offer some quick advice to any future “prophets” receiving messages from beyond about the utter destruction of the planet:

Never predict the end of the world. It’s bad for you, your friends, your business, and most importantly, your credibility as a human.

Doomsayer and Christian radio host Harold Camping predicted earthquakes and chaos beginning about 6pm, May 21st, 2011. But it didn’t happen. The Apocalypse seems to never happen, much to the disappointment and chagrin of all the doomsayer’s fanboys and girls.

It is strange how many people are left with long faces when the world doesn’t end. It appears many people just want to watch the world burn. They just want to say, “See. I told you so.”

That is sad.
My second piece of advice. Humanity should stop listening to the doomsayers.
Instead, we should start promoting “Visionsayers”. Visionsayers are people who believe in tomorrow. The sun will rise in the morning. The planet and humanity are worth fighting for and preserving for all time.
A true Visionsayer makes predictions as well. They prophesy exact dates and times. But this is where their similarity to the prophets of doom ends.

A true Visonsayer does not predict the end of the world. They say, on a chosen date and time, the future of the world begins. A Visionsayer tells people to dream about tomorrow, not about destruction.
So hurry. Strengthen yourself. There is much planning and work to do. Do not get caught unprepared.
Have you heard?
The future of the world begins tomorrow.
