Submission + - Resigning Pope Brings Doomsday Prophecy (discovery.com) 1

astroengine writes: "Is the world only a Pope away from the End? Yes, if you believe a chilling 12th-century prophecy. Attributed to St. Malachy, an Irish archbishop canonized in 1190, the Prophecy of the Popes would date to 1139. The document predicted that there would be only 112 more popes before the Last Judgment — and Benedict XVI is 111. However, there's also the suggestion that the prophesy is a 12th-century hoax, so don't bother re-stocking your "2012 doomsday" bunker quite yet."

  • The pope resigns even thought he believes that this is putting Humans 1 step closer to the apocalypse?

    He could of remained the 111 pope for another 10-15 years.

    Is he resigning because he wants the apocalypse to come as soon as possible?

The Wright Bothers weren't the first to fly. They were just the first not to crash.
