    The time period between the first coming and the second coming is unknown ahead of time.

    Let's say I'm born 2000 years after the first coming and keep myself healthy and expect to live for 75 years.  The only way that the second coming happens during my lifetime is if it happens between 2000 and 2075, i.e. I live within the last 3.6% of all the time that has elapsed between the first coming and the second, i.e. I am really special, even if I make the completely unfounded, unbiblical, I-know-more-about-it-than-Jesus-himself-does assumption that I know that the second coming is going to be before I would otherwise die of natural causes.

    Not only is it a narcissistic attitude; not only is it a dereliction of God-given responsibility to look after creation; it is also to place oneself above Jesus.  Which denies the fundamental idea of Christianity in the first place.
