    We have already reached July 14 here in Australia.  You good folks there in the Western Hemisphere will have to wait until tomorrow morning before you reach this day.   I need to point out that we only have 10 days to go before that great, momentous D Day!   

    Could we prepare a Census, please?   If anyone knows exactly what we should expect when we get either "up there," or "down there?"   If you have been working as, maybe, a janitor down there, for a sort of pre-Olympics Clean-up, you might have some insider knowledge.  I doubt if anyone can tell us much about Heaven, it's probably a secret for the "high-ups."

    Anyway, back to the Census.   On the 24th, please, send in a note to say where you are, up there or down there.   Hopefully one of the commercial Internet Providers will have set up shop somewhere in orbit, so we can collate answers and post them here in HubPages.  Then we can get a paparazzi of angels to interview some likely survivors.

          Oh.... thanks Ray, that explains why I missed the point!

          Living in Penang, I can tell every American that tomorrow happens by mid day! and it has happened with clockwork reliability every day so far!

          Nobody knows when the next major event will happen. smile

      She has been silent of late. Do you think she got an early flight?

    Haha you made me laugh. Seeing as you are my neighbour I will let you know first assuming whatever allows me access to the internet.  Our 24th is a couple of hours before yours. You will have time to do whatever you are meant to do. If you don't hear from me than I am more than likely going to be in an inferno somewhere in hades where ever that is. I suspect computers wouldn't work there. Which means there is no chance for you to do whatever needs to be done. If by some stroke of luck I am headed for heaven where ever that is I will take the time to let you know assuming they have computers that work and you will have a better chance at doing whatever one is meant to do.

    Jonny, how come you folks get to go first?!
    AND is the Rapture on GMT, in intervals throughout the day? I just want to be proactive. Because if I get an extra 12-20 hours, might squeeze in a last minute snack, in case there's a delay or worse jet lag afterward.
    Thanks!

      Ok JA, when I get wherever I'm going, I'll do a Harry Potter, trans-whatever it is, and become a Cocuyo.  That way I can light up my tail and attract a mate.

      The upside of living down under. (bottom of the globe apparently) Another upside is we get to watch the New years come into being many times over!

        Right, so I can watch each timezone whisked away, on CNN, for like 28 hours before it hits New York. Cool beans. Creepy, but cool! big_smile

        You could go to Attu island in Alaska. It is actually the point furthest east AND west in the US.

          Are they further under than we are? Cool! Time wise though they are 19hrs behind us.

    I'll still be here on the 25th. So will the rest of us. Life goes on.

    Has anybody started a count down for 12,21,2012 yet? According to the Myans that's when we all can bend over and kiss our A**es good bye. That is if we are still here after July 24th.

    Dave, you and I both know that someone should just go ahead and pick zero hour...for all the good that will do. I put myself on moratorium for two thousand twelve...no hubs...but, I've been thinking about 12-21-12, and decided that I might do a hub, published on that day.

    I don't give a rat's a** if or when something really happens. When you die, you die, at least physically.
    Spiritually I guess I will see, and I will see those who end up where ever I am.

    My God says that heaven is a reality to look forward to and since I am "Christian" and believe in what Jesus had written, that's where I'll go.

    My kid has an appointment with the top pediatric allergist in the state on the 24th. It took me 9 freaking months to get that appointment. Pretty sure at 3 she is getting raptured regardless of the 666 birthmark on her scalp.  God better damn sure let us get through that appointment first.

    1. Druid Dude profile image60
      Druid Dudeposted 4 years ago in reply to this

      666 is a multiple of three. 222x3=666 (preponderance of threes) Don't worry until 12-21-12 (Which in numerology is 3-3-3.

          Masonic? So...666 is only a multiple of three in the Masonic Temple? Numerology is Masonic?

        3-3-3 = 27; 2-7 is 9; Tet {pronounced tate in Hebrew}
        Tet reflects the two archetypes of man:

        a. Falling into self -resembling man bowing to a serpent
        b. Restored from self -resembling man bowing to a crowned vav/zayin {sword of the spirit see Gen 3.24}

        Tet is expressed by a crowned vav/zayin, that looks like a women pregnant with child. Rev 12.1
        This is Tet.

          I have never seen such interesting background knowledge as it can apply to Revelations.   Thanks for that JA.

        jonny -- or an apologetic allegorical allergy.  Egad!  we could really get the bit in our teeth with this one and run for pages!  I don't have the faintest bloody idea what you're all questing for on this thread.  I further suspect no one particularly cares, but the conversation sustains itself nonetheless.  Fascinating.  Sort of like St. Augustine meets Sartre on Tweedle Dum/Tweedle Dee's corner.  They all simultaneously ask each other for directions to Up There or Down Here.  The Red King, mounted securely on Silver, thunders thru the intersection brandishing Excalibur and screaming at the top of his lungs, "Gott Starb!  Gott Starb!" -- then it all turns into a jumbled mess and gets hard to understand.

        Help me Lord, I'm falllllllllllllllllllllling. . .

          Well, Moonfroth, it was all to do with a spurious prediction that something was going to happen on the 24th July which would change things radically in the world.   Then I think there was a suggestion from someone that it was going to be 27th or 29th.   We had lots of fun on the way.   

          However, it's now late afternoon on 29th here is Eastern Australia. I am here, live and kickin'.  Snow fell up on my land this morning, very cold and damp.   No hell, fire, or brimstone, not calamity.  So it seams the predictions were not quite what God ordained so it didn't happen.

          We live to wait again, but let's get on with enjoying life regardless.

          Jonny -- at the risk of going Serious for a moment -- methinks these dates put forth by various groups are part of mankind's need for certitude in a complex universe that offers little.  Enquiring minds that demand evidence find few research paths that actually end-stop at some point.  Always there are more questions, more mysteries, instead of answers or resonating, final Truths.  If you  have reacted in a particular way to your upbringing, I can understand the desperate need to find certitude.  Final destruction at a designated time is a kind of certitude..  IF it actually occurred the power of prophecy  that "saw" it coming would validate all the faith in all the miracles that comprise the core of Christian thinking and the cosmology that started it all.  "Twould be a rather BRIEF validation, granted, but a validation nonetheless.

          But I agree with you.  We're still here, enjoying this life and marvelling in the wonders around us.  Good enough for me.

            jonnycomelatelyposted 4 years ago in reply to this

            Ok, yes, keeping it serious for a further moment.   I am aware that many a priest, pastor has found that their ministry requires them to be well versed in psychology these days.  The "religous" aspects are imersed in the mental processes which we all experience.  The mental processes are linked very often with dietary intake, type of food, metabolism and poor nutrient mix.   Sugar, zinc are two important factors in the feelings of low esteme, etc.  A successful social life is a VERY big factor also.... i.e., how we relate to those around us, and how safe "I" feel in my habitat.  Obviously there are the base animal instincts to be aware of also.   We humans have our roots in ordinary biological survival traits.

            So, from this, I extrapolate that ALL of our life experience is integrated.  We really can find solutions to problems IF we try to look at the "big picture," instead of concentrating on belief, faith, sin, penance, forgiveness, etc.  These are important but are only really relevant if taken in context with every-day life. 

            I am going on a bit here, as usual.

    Excuse me, I don't get what you mean. I know one thing though. Nobody ever went to heaven and came back to tell nobody. Jesus did, but he didn't say much about it. I can guarantee you one thing. It is better than the alternative.
