Vatican: “Doomsday will come when _I_ say so, and not before”
Pope Benedict XVI has called on Christians not to heed doomsday warnings that the world will end on December 21.
During his weekly Angelus address from the window of his Vatican apartments on St Peter’s Square, Benedict spoke of extracts from the Bible that speak of ‘‘the sun and moon going out, the stars falling from the sky’’.
But they’re only metaphorical. Whereas the bits about virgin births, resurrections, miracles and demigods floating up to heaven are obviously literally true.
