May 22 is "Being Wrong" Day

Apparently some think the end of the world is coming....... again.  Putting a date on judgment day is a risky business as everyone before has been wrong.  (Hence I am able to make this blog post)   Anyway, I am declaring May 22 as "Being Wrong" day.  On this day, a certain religious group will get to experience "wrongness".  And in my opinion, their response to the wrongness will give us an insight into everyone's troubled relationship with being wrong.  "We were almost right..."  "We were wrong but..."  "Not intended to be a factual statement" are likely responses.  

Let's remember that being wrong is a positive thing.  In fact, it is a great opportunity to make progress and change your mind about anything.  The alternative to being wrong is that you continue to believe the same things, which are wrong.  I will be surprised if they totally concede their point and just say, "We were wrong" with no qualifications.  But I will totally give them props if they do concede.  Also, I may be wrong as well.  Judgement day might actually be upon us.  I seriously hope not though as we are closing on May 25.  I don't recall anything in our contract of sale about what to do in the event of an apocalypse.  I imagine the seller would be pissed :)
