        It's a long weekend. Can't you put in a word for moving it to Tuesday? It's supposed to be sunny too. I was looking forward to it after all this damned rain we have been having.

          I think that's doable. I believe their calculations hinge on the day the ark was launched. All I need to do is convince them they forgot to take into account leap years, blue moons and the apocalypse averted in'76. That should buy the rest of us a few days.

          It shouldn't be hard to convince them. It appears that they will believe anything. But it'll have to be late afternoon on Tuesday. I have a luncheon engagement I would prefer to keep.

      Well, that date made me sit up and wonder.

      Still had to take a family member to the dentist today though and 2 fillings were had and we're still here so hopefully we're not living in the aftermath of the end times.

      However as far as I know, if we knew the exact date the Lord was returning to claim victory over Satan, we'd all prepare!

      Well, unless you get raptured there will probably be at least one more growing season before the end. But be kind to the weeds. They are definitely not being raptured so they need a break.

        Well everything comes to an end, even planets!  Though I doubt that this one is getting a red card this weekend. Also depends if they mean the planet being destroyed or the end of the human race - not the same thing at all. Planet Earth can do very well without us!

          Slarty O'Brianposted 5 years ago in reply to this

          That's the thing. They always say it is going to end but what they mean is that it's going to start. The end for Christians is never an end, just a beginning.

          Predictions say that after the end of the world us atheists and other sinners will still be alive down here in a kind of hell on earth with the zombies till Jesus comes and renews the earth. I think it's then that we all get flung into the pit.

          But. Buddhists predicted a third world war first and then a thousand years of peace. After that it's anybodies guess.

          And it can't end now because we still have 2012 to look forward to according to the Mayans.

          I wonder what Jesus will do about the sun going red giant in a few billion years?

      My mother shocked me today. I see her every week when I do groceries for her. We were talking about this rapture thing. and she told me she actually prays to god not to send her to heaven if the rest of her family isn't going. She'd rather be with us.

    Yesterday I went by it and so help me there was a "Judgement Day May 21st!" message on it.
    That kinda freaked me out that even in a very small town like this you are seeing it.

    I've been waiting anxiously to see what my final destination will be - and now that it is so close I realize there is no way to prepare for judgement day - if it truly exists.  I've always thought these things are more like metaphors for teachings, in other words "Live life AS IF you will be judged at the end and you will be good, kind, courageous, generous and compassionate and have nothing to worry about - either way" 

    of course, I haven't done so, and expect to get a lot of punishment  - IF!  See you there!

                  For hell, not in hell. You will get your uniform and instructions when you get to heaven. Seems the Christians Jews and Muslims have been following a fallen god: the one who said to his followers that he is the only god.

                  Don't worry. Hell is only a place where they all get deprogrammed. "An" (the real father of all the gods) needs us to help coordinate the masses and guide them to where they need to be.

                  On the other hand, Yahweh is in big trouble.

                  You will get farther instructions at 11 pm  Newfoundland time.
