There are 4 ages according to the ancients. The Age of Wisdom. The Age of Ritual. The Age of Doubt and The Age of Confusion. This is the Age of Confusion and it's coming to an end. After this Age is done, another Age of Wisdom begins. It's an exciting time actually and no, not everyone is ready or willing to see it come to pass, but that changes nothing.
"Die before you die."-Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh)
