THE WORLD IS ENDING TOMORROW, MAY 21ST 2011! RUN FOR THE HILLS!
Could the world possibly end on May 21st, 2011? Actually, yes. It could also end on the 22nd, the 23rd, and so on. But will it? Probably not. It's amazing to me how far sheer lunacy spreads in this country. But with that said, if I wake up tomorrow and hear the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant exploded at 6 pm Japan time, I'd believe it. I never really understood the concept of the Rapture and being left behind so I use the phrase, doomsday. But hey if the Rapture just so happened to occur- I'll pray to Buddha, Jesus, Allah, whoever.
The man behind the May 21st scare is Harold Camping(pictured above) an 89-year-old radio host that has been predicting doomsday for years. In the 90′s, he published a book entitled "1994?"(insert Orwellian joke here.) In it he claimed Judgement day would come on September, 1994. When asked about why the world did not end in September he has to learn from his mistake of not considering the book of Jeremiah.(Uh-huh..)
I always wondered "what is the end of the world?" I figured it wasn't literally the Earth exploding but more along the lines of the end of the Mankind- which is pretty possible.(Look at the Dinosaurs) But it's probably way too early to worry about a mass extinction. The other theory, and the one they're going with is that Gods going to rip open a hole in the space-time continuum where he exists. Then by means of a giant vacuum he's going to suck up the good Christians(and a few Jews for some reason) then take them too Heaven while those who are left are going to be tortured by demons until God's son Jesus comes back and fights his evil brother(I wish I was making this up) who will do battle until one wins and something vague happens... And we give these people airtime? There are way more important things to worry about. I'll see you Sunday.
