There are many claimants for home to Armageddon and first among them of course is Megiddo in Israel. As Wikipedia points out, the Book of Revelation mentions an apocalyptic battle at Armageddon, a name derived from the Hebrew “Har Megiddo” meaning “Mount of Megiddo.” “Armageddon” has become a byword for the end of the world.
Our BS Journey to the End of the World (Departs October 13th) begins in Megiddo before moving on to some of the other candidates for Armageddon.
Stand up Mayor Cobb Candis of Aberdeen, Idaho. He is convinced his community is the place of the final battle between good and evil.
“Shi’it. Everyone knows the fateful battle at the end of times will take place on Custer Avenue. General Custer saved us from the evil Injuns. The devil will ride into our town and we, the descendents of Custer will fight him off.”
Asked if this is just a ploy to encourage tourism, Candis says “Shi’it. If I tell you this is the God’s honest truth you’d better believe it.”
Meanwhile, in St. Louis, Missouri, Pastor Francette Malderhide polishes the brass knockers on the front door of the Last Days Apostolic Church. Guns are mounted on the turrets above.
“Just in case we don’t see the Four Horsemen from the ground, church members take turns at guarding this fine town from impending doom.”
The last stop in our whirlwind tour of the Apocalypse is Lucifer Falls, Enfield, just southwest of Ithaca, New York.
“Gog and Magog will do battle as they sail along the might Enfield Creek until they topple over Lucifer Falls,” says Robert Treman park ranger Jeanette Oldsmobile. “My granddaddy, who designed the first car, brought me here one day and told me of the vision he had as a child. And he’s right. It shall come to pass.”
