The Rapture 05/21/11 has been postponed - October 21/2011  Reply with quote  

I'm interested to hear what you guys think about Harold Camping and the Judgment day movement. I looked around on the forum to see if there was a thread regarding this topic specifically and couldn't find anything so I figured I'd start the conversation. If there is one already, sorry...

Personally I am not a believer, I have faith, but not in a organized religion man up in the sky short of way. So needless to say I can't buy into any of this. I do feel really bad for the family members and the kids of the parents who are getting caught up in this mess. I've read a lot of articles recently about how parents have stopped saving for their kids college tuition and how they have walked away from the jobs and mortgages to "spread the word of god."

Does anyone in here believe that the rapture is near? If so, I'd like to hear your take on it, and how you see this going down...

Now, Mr. Camping says our rapture day is October 21, 2011 at 6pm.

Your thoughts?

Lets see:

Add all the ages of the people in the bible to determine the date of the great deluge, fabricate conversion formula for "gods days" (1=1000 for anyone interested), add 7000 years (aka 1 "god week")... and voila! You've got the end of the world.

The logic is flawless.

Anyone worried about a terrorist attack from deranged fundamentalists?

All I know is that I had non-stop apocalyptic dreams last night. I was the hero though, so I think everything will be fine.

It was more like a movie than a video game, but I think I was successful regardless.

Well, the sun is out today for the first time in a week. 70 with a light breeze. Definitely end-of-the-world-type weather.

I have it on good authority that we are actually living in the year 1713. Gregorian Calendar? C'mon.
