Just a few thoughts on why there's no need to worry. First of all, Oprah's last show isn't scheduled until the 25th. Not even God can upstage Oprah. Secondly, WalMart is not closing early on the 21st. Yet I wonder....has Rev. Camping's church printed bulletins for Sunday's services on the 22nd? And...if the world is ending on the 21st....why are they still asking for donation?
why they are still asking for donation?. well isn't it obvious to bribe their way to heaven.. on serious notes camping loves predicting and re predicting...
Will the world end May 21st?
No. It hasn't ended.
Well it is May 21,2011 and I'm still here so I can report that it was a hoax and alot of people worried needlessly for nothing.
Maybe the world has already ended and we are just living in the aftermath of the end times yet we think everything is real.
Regardless, the family member I had to take to the dentist today has had the necessary fillings and I'm having to have a snack now to fill the pangs set in by hunger.
Mind you though, I've to admit when I was feeling hungry this morning before that dental appointment, a hot beverage sure did the trick!
Yep... God is the most Richest one and He didn't need money!
Guess it didn't we're all still here writing!!!!!!!!!!!
I think this guy has run out of publicity money from the last "prediction" and needs more...I'm sure were gonna hear about this again in another 16 years lol
I think there's a good chance it wasn't an intentional hoax at all. This perfectly sincere individual (the guy at the root of it all) was simple misguided in his his beliefs and incorrect in his calculations. Hey - it happens to a lot of us. Calculating stuff based on the Mayan calendar isn't easy, you know.
but he used bible and not mayan calendar...
Hmm. Live and learn. My local news reported that it was based on the Mayan calendar. (I couldn't believe they even did a thing on it at all, but maybe that's just me. They had the whole Doomsday clock thing - etc. etc. Maybe I wasn't listening closely enough. The did feature a part about the guy's incorrect prediction in 1994. Oh well.... Bible. Mayan calendar. It's all pretty much to same to me.
how can you compare pagan mayans with true believers?..it doesn't make sense to me...on serious notes...end time predictions have been hobby of many since human began to think...rev h was following age old hobby...
By virtue of the definition of the word "believe" (regardless of what someone believes), the term "believer" means that anyone who believes anything thinks what he believes is true. If he didn't, he wouldn't believe it.
People can believe what they want, of course; but, to me, people who presume to make predictions about the world and predictions about what there is, or isn't, in terms of anything that goes on after we die are all the same. I, personally, think people ought to figure out what they believe or don't believe without following the words or writings of any other human beings, because no other human beings have any "special connection" to knowledge about the non-Earthly matters of things like after life, supreme beings, or how any creator thinks or plans to do things. No middle men - and certainly no words of people who walked the Earth centuries and centuries ago when human beings believed things like that the moon was made of green cheese or that when the Winter brought more darkness they had to light fires to convince "the gods" not to make the sun go away. \
There's a big difference between believing in God, or at least not ruling out the possibility that there's God, and believing stuff that human beings have written and said (even if they've written and said stuff out of good intentions, such as trying to make some of those barbaric people of a couple of thousand years ago (and far more recently, for that matter) behave in more civilized, compassionate, ways.
I, personally, don't believe that anyone's believing in God is "equal to pagan" by any means. What I see as "equal to pagan" is believing books that have been written by human beings and believing that certain human beings are more than that and know more than that.
Really - when someone who believes in The Rapture sits before a TV camera, is asked by the reported whether long-dead people are going to look like themselves when they gift lifted out their graves, and says with a straight face that they will look just as they always did.... Well, what can I say... My mind is boggled that this world has been populated with human beings for as long as it has, and as late in the game as this, we still have people believing some of this stuff.
I, personally, believe that faith and spirituality are between each individual and anyone/anything "out there"; and that anyone/anything that has presumed to interfere with each individual's private journey of finding his own faith/spirituality (or not) has stunted the progress human beings could have been making if people hadn't believed what other human beings told them.
So, to me: Bible, Mayan calendar, whatever it is that someone came up with thousands of years ago - it's all the same. (Again, I'm not knocking faith in a Creator. Just knocking the words and stories written by human beings and passed off as anything other than that. )
I notice you cannot log on to their website at present, familyradio.com, maybe they are getting ready for 9pm tonight when the earthquakes supposed to start lol
If he has any sense of decency he's legging it towards Mexico... before the faithful come looking for a refund !
But I Bet you a Dollar to a dried dog turd he'll be on the airways tomorrow proclaiming it didn't happen 'cos he asked God to spare us and as he's God's best pal we live to sin another day...
Sod It ! We're still here nothing happened.... So tomorrow I will definately have to start decorating the kitchen....!
Bummer ! Can't rely on anything these days, if I ever work out where to put the batteries in my crystal Ball then I'll give that Camping Fruit Loop a run for his money.
Any bets using his numbers won't win the lottery tonight either 05 11 20 21 !!
No trumpets sounding.(Just my neighbor's kid practicing the recorder)
No angels announcing the end. (Only a guy dressed like a chicken in front of Pollo Rico)
No red moon, or eclipse. (We're heading to the beach)
No dead animals. (The ducks are crossing the street)
AND Bruce Willis is nowhere in sight, so I think we're good!
We are ALL still here. Keep posting until it does. If the rapture happens, I'm taking your car.
All very good points.
Points which will require much thought and contemplation.
Can I get back to you on Sunday, the 22nd?
That reminds me of a wild dog who got his head struck in a tin can trying to eat from the garbage. His neck was breeding so bad I had to help him or he was going to die from breeding from the neck. After I release him I thought I should take him home and give him some real food. Instead he went right back eating the toxic crap right away from the many very old cans in the Vass area of garbage.
Maybe you can’t teach an old dog new tricks (or god spelled backwards)
Is it just me here in Tennessee or is that harps I hear warming up?????
Well, it's Monday morning and the only things raptured were the mates to about a dozen pairs of my socks. I'm thoroughly disappointed!
<singing> "It's just another manic Monday
I wish it was Sunday
'Cause that's my funday
My I don't have to runday
It's just another manic Monday"
from the song "Manic Monday" by The Bangles
What you people don't realize is that we actually died on the 21st and we are all confused spirits, living an alternate reality in a Bruce Willis's "Sixth Sense" kind of way.
Same thing. Oh, by the way, Rev. Camping found out he miscalculated by four months. The new date is October 21st. Camping was quoted as saying, "Seriously. I really, really mean it this time. I meant it all those other times but this time I really mean it. Really. Seriously!"
So it really is gonna happen on the 21st really then?
Oh well now I am convinced! I mean he says he really really means it and that doesn't sound at all like a small child playing guessing games and passing it as fact or anything
OK. My youngest son (14) has straightened me out. He says the Rev. Camping was absolutely correct on his May 21st date. The rapture did occur and only Oprah was qualified to be taken but she made them wait 'til the 25th so she could do her last show. Besides, my boy says since Rev. camping is in his late 80's everytime he wakes up in the morning its a rapture to him.

So, the Mayans were wrong. Which doesn't mean that the end isn't near. According to Saint Malachi, anyway. His predictions on the popes have been eerily accurate.Once the current pope is gone, do you think that will...

Is it true that the Mayan Calendar ends in 2012 which means the world will end by May 21, 2012. Do really Planet X exist? Is it going to strike on earth, is really the pole going to shift according to Nasa...
