In the single second that it took you to read the title,
somewhere on Earth,
2 people ‘lost’ their lives.
I read somewhere that over 100 people die every minute,
= 6,000 per hour,
= 150,000 per day,
= 56 million per year… and Voila!
By throwing out an incomprehensible number like that it is now a meaningless statistic isn’t it?
Next time that you are at a big sporting event or concert and they announce the attendance, you can mentally divide the crowd to visualize what 6,000 people dying every hour looks like.
Have you ever stood in line at a Bank or tried to renew your Drivers License or Passport?
How many people do they normally process in one hour? It ain’t 6,000!
So let’s face it there is no way St. Peter could possibly handle processing 2 people a second through the Pearly Gates ...
and that my friends is why there are other religions.
