    I was thinking we had until December 21, but this person says it will be in Oct 21 (my birthday), but the May 21 is the beginning of the judgement period.

    Do you have any more info on this?

      Who is filling your head with this nonsense about the world coming to an end? No man has any way of knowing or predicting what is on God's mind concerning the end times and the beginning of God's Judgement.

      Many alarmists, people who simply like to cause trouble for others, by scaring them, have said that on December 20, 2012, 20,12, 2012  which is the day that the Myan Calendar is finished that something bad is supposed to happen, but all this is is people trying to scare other people. Lies Lies Lies!  It was something started by business people to try and drive customers into the stores to buy things for survival, so that the stores can make big money. This is all a trick to scare people and nothing more. Nothing bad is going to happen, not in this lifetime we are in.
      Just like what happened in the year "2,000" when all the computers were supposed to crash and the world was to end then, nothing happened and here we are in 2010 ten years later, but people were so scared they were going to the stores buying extra of everything thinking they needed it to survive. Lies Lies Lies!

    More than likely it's all Bull****, I say we will all be fine when the day comes! It's probably going to just be a time of change, possibly for the good. The flood that's 'predicted' could all be metaphorical and mean something else. Maybe the 'flood' could mean a wiping away of sin but nothing to do with water drowning us.

    Or maybe it could be the start of a new world order were we all become controlled further. Well In my opinion the new world order has begun a long time ago...

    Hopefully we will all be fine!

      You might be on to something there? It could be the end of the world as we know the world to be and disappear like that mayan race. Possibly into a different dimension because we trashed our earth and it can no longer sustain life as we know life to be.

      At least not for about oh 4 - 5 billion more yrs.
      The human species won't even end!
      Hell, we'll be here for a long long time too...but in reduced numbers and very likely we'll be a great deal different than we are today.
      The next 50 - 75 yrs hold the answer.

    A lot of people thought the world would end in 2000, and that all of our electronic devices would fail, and we would be sent back into the dark ages, with a possible accidental nuclear war. People panicked, and went on a buying spree, hording gasoline, water, and canned goods. They also purchased a lot of power generators, and lots of guns and ammo.

    I know this, because I was a cashier at a department store, and I was witness to the mass stupidity. We even had people fighting over spam! People were really stupid, and the supermarket chains raked in the big bucks. They claim that the eve of 1999 was one of the biggest sale days in the companies history.

    And, if you go back and check, there are countless dates of when the world would end, and nothing happened. Just like when Oral Roberts claimed if he didn't get $5,000,000.00 in donations to his church on this exact date, god would strike him dead. He didn't raise the money, and he was still alive the next day.

    I think it's all very stupid. And, a money making scheme.

      It might have been stupid, but whomever would have learned some very valuable lessons. Stupidity has its usefulness. It would have meant they would have to question their beliefs. Which I see as a good thing.

      Don't know where you got your data from. Doesn't sound familiar. I wouldn't hold your breath, because Nostradamus, who was a Hebrew convert to Christianity claimed to see to the year three thousand, and he based his projections from bible scripture. At any rate, don't hold your breath. Even the Mayan Calendar has been "misread", so there is no out there, either. Here's something that may help though. Next time you wash dishes, throw your crystal ball in there. Windex helps, too! smilewink

    i think death is very peaceful, you can point your middle finger to all the moral policing, society's expectations(yawn) and lecture and say F**k you all!
    hell also seems a lot cooler(not talking about temperature:)) than hell.
    since i want it so much i am pretty sure it's not coming to an end in a hurry.
