Nope, people are caught up in making money, sports, or whatever they do most of the time.
How many of them last year would even think the world would be like this now?
However, the Christian faith demands that people believe in the possibility of the odd breaking out at any time even when things are normal. Yet this is tough to do, and I don’t think even people that believe in it – that is, really believe in it. They wouldn’t believe in it until a scenario like that of today shows up.
Plenty of other people – as hard as it is to fathom – don’t view our present reality as something truly different from whatever they are normally used to. They think things will go back to normal next year, and this aberration will be another somewhat-forgotten tragedy like 9/11.
These people won’t be going into survival mode due to this virus because they believe there’s a future.
Scenes from Movies
The protagonist in The Terminator (the one trying to save Sarah Conner) was seen as an raving loon by the cops. The beginning scene in Ghostbusters II had Bill Murray in a paranormal TV show mocking the guests.
My Own Doubts
It involves the fact that I didn’t really take Oprah, Ted Turner, etc. seriously. I didn’t believe their beloved plan (UN Agenda 21) could be carried out – the very plan I see coming to fruition right now.
