Bill Nye collapses, audience tweets instead of helps

You won't believe this. Or maybe you will:

"Last night in front of an audience of hundreds at a presentation at the University of Southern California, TV personality Bill Nye — popularly known as the "Science Guy" — collapsed midsentence as he walked toward a podium. Early indications are that Nye is OK, but what's odd about the incident isn't so much Nye's slight health setback as the crowd's reaction. Or, more precisely, its nonreaction, according to several accounts. It appears that the students in attendance, rather than getting up from their seats to rush to Nye's aid, instead pulled out their mobile devices to post information about Nye's loss of consciousness. Alastair Fairbanks, a USC senior in attendance for Nye's presentation, told the Los Angeles Times that "nobody went to his aid at the very beginning when he first collapsed — that just perplexed me beyond reason." The student added, "Instead, I saw students texting and updating their Twitter statuses. It was just all a very bizarre evening."

A man collapses in front of hundreds of people and NO ONE gets up to help. They just sit there, anxious to be the first to get it on their twitter status. UGH!

We are wicked. We are born wicked, we live wicked, and we die. Those that recognize their wickedness and repented before death will live with Jesus and those that didn't, won't. But the world is fallen and as the world grows older, it falls more and more into its wickedness with each passing day. All of time since Eden has been racing toward THIS moment, the imminence of His second coming. He comes because of the total depravity of man, and a world of cold-hearted people, the natural conclusion to our depravity. He will return to wipe out wickedness from the earth. Then He will wipe out the earth, and make a new one.

Until the moment He appears, the world will quickly descend into a deep wickedness that can barely be fathomed, let alone tolerated. Jesus said that the time right before His coming would be like the Days of Noah (Mt 24:37) and in the days of Noah, "The LORD saw how great man's wickedness on the earth had become, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time." That wickedness was why He sent the flood. And in the days right before the judgment coming soon upon all mockers and scoffers and unrepentant, will again be completely wicked. He said, “Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold." (Mt 24:12)

Well, lawlessness is increased and people's love has grown cold. That is the only way to state it, when a man lays moaning before hundreds, and they coldly text their friends that a man is moaning in front of them.


  1. Hi Ma~,

    We've come a long way since The Good Samaritan! (Luke 10:30-37)

  2. Given that there's a couple polling the internet on whether or not to have an abortion or have their baby, I can believe anything I read anymore!


  3. We have become a spectator society waiting to be spoon fed our news and entertainment. Perhaps the virtual world of tweets has become more "real" or perhaps "comfortable" than personal human interaction. The result? Detatchment and alienation from groups other than our own. What will be next? Perhaps cage fighting between Christians and lions.

  4. One more thought...
    On that glorious day when the Lord comes, the tweets will not be omg, they will be OMG!!!!!
