Second coming?????  Most of humanity is still awaiting the first

The year 2001 will be the first year of a new millennium only for
a minority of humans who use the Christian calender.  For the
rest of the world, the second millennium is either long past, or
has not come yet.

Earlier this year I was in San Marino for the UFO conference
there.  In San Marino the year is 1696, so they have more than
three-hundred years left before the millennium.

Our dating of years is purely arbitrary.  Even for Christians,
the actual year of Christ's birth is unknown, but considered by
the best scholars to be something like 30 BC. So the real
Christian millennium has come and gone, and nothing much

The only thing likely to increase as we come near to the year
2001 is insanity on the part of "fundamentalist" Christians.
