End Day?



According to Harold Camping, a massive earthquake will mark Judgment Day on Saturday, May 21, and after a five month period of catastrophes, the world comes to a complete end in October.

Doomsday Church: Still Open For Business

Yeah, right.

Happy Friday everybody. See you on Monday.

So, why are this guy's followers still donating money to him? What's he gonna do with it when the world ends?

Jan said...

Thanks for the very informative link. I didn't really know much about the background of the end of the world.

Z said...

This guy's supposedly a big Bible reader who doesn't seem to know that the Bible says anybody who knows when the end's coming is wrong! (I paraphrase :-) Okay; I'll try not to paraphrase "He who knoweth not.." Never mind!!!

I'm not canceling the bridal shower I and others are throwing tomorrow...we'll just keep our fingers crossed!

BeckEye: IMO it's because they're fools who are easily separated from their money.

Jan: I suspect we still don't know anything about the background of the end of the world, despite what Camping says.

cube said...

Z: Apparently he hasn't read Matthew, but gets his information from deciphering "signs" that are hidden in the Bible.

I don't have an excitng weekend planned as you do, but I do plan on finishing the novel I'm currently reading.

Well, I'll be in downtown D.C, tomorrow. If the world ends, I'll let you know. **wink**

cube said...

Always On Watch: I wonder which time zone Camping deduced from his studies of the Bible ... it's already May 21 on the other side of the world.

Good luck in DC tomorrow :-)

Mustang said...

What? You mean it likely isn't true? After I went out and charged $50,000 on my credit card?

Rats.

cube said...

Mustang: At least you didn't donate your life savings to this nutcase like so many of his other devoted followers did ;-)

Teresa said...

This guy is kooky. He obviously needs to read up on his Bible passages. Plus, he's predicted the end of the world before and we're still here so...

Idiots

Brooke said...

I recall some scripture about no one knowing the hour, not even the Son, and about Him coming like a thief in the night...

Unless the Lord decides to play the prank of all time tonight by going along with this guy, I think it'll be business as usual here on planet Earth.

Brooke said...

As long as He decides to rapture us after Dr. Who airs, anyway.... ;)

Z said...

Cube, a 92 yr old friend called last night rather later than usual and said "I just want to say goodbye"...she scared the @(#*$&@#(*&$ out of me!
Then she started laughing and said she was referring to this situation today! geeez!

I thought the world is supposed to end TODAY, at 6 pm.

That gives us, as of right now, a little under one hour.

cube said...

Teresa: I'm not a Biblical scholar by any means, but even I have heard that the book of Matthew gives indication that only God will know when the end comes. IMO this guy Camping is just out for money. No need to worry unless you've opened your life savings to him.

cube said...

Chuck: Oh, yeah!

cube said...

Brooke: Dammit, I'm no theologian, but even I know that only God knows the hour of the end of the world.

BTW I have no Star Trek to look forward to post "rapture", but just life would be good too.

cube said...

Z: Your friend has a delightful sense of humor.

cube said...

Karen Howes: I'm typing this response at exactly 6 PM... how are you feeling? I'm feeling fine.

Patrick Carroll said...

Errr...Yep, still here!

Cube!

Hello from the other side! It's really bright here and there are people I love around me! It's warm, comfortable, there is water here and I feel no pain at all!

Of course, it's Sunday Morning, I'm at home, have the day off, am feeling better than usual and about to jump in the pool!

:D
