My name is Agnostic, and I believe in the collapse. I have anticipated a collapse or similar cataclysmic events since a young age. The thing is, no collapse has occurred in my lifetime. Maybe it never will. "Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see." - Hebrews 11:1 Are we hoping for a collapse? Are we assured that it will occur? When a specific date of collapse is nominated but does not occur, are we simply reinforced in our belief that it is even more overdue today? Or do we re-define collapse or the indicators of its coming in a flurry of revisionist history? Is the collapse a deus ex-machina to remove us from our miserable current lives, with which we are deeply dissatisfied and can see no way out? Do we collect shiny objects as tokens of our belief?
