Eschatology Lane Spreads to Swanston Street!

You may remember back in June I highlighted some End Times graffiti near work in what I named Eschatology Lane. Today I must report the disturbing news that signs of prophetic doom are sweeping out of the laneway and round the corner on to Swanston Street!

Just this lunchtime I walked past the previously sensible-looking Melbourne City Conference Centre to see this banner on its steps for an event organized by Melbourne Central City Church:

IT’S HAPPENING NOW! SEVEN SIGNS OF THE END OF THE WORLD!

This is full-on Revelations Hysteria, complete with references to The Coming World Dictator and 666. Beware folks, the clock it ticking.

It’s genuinely tempting to say this kind of thing is heating up on the Road to 2012, but as Walter Benjamin wisely said, “the ‘state of emergency’ in which we live is not the exception but the rule”…
