    What do you think about this?

      I was OK with the page, UNTILL the date 1988.
      The supposed beginning of the "Great Tribulation". They lost me on that one.

      Th Bible says, of that time, that it (will be) a time of suffering, such as never before seen in human history. I don't see anything "outstanding" about the year 1899 (or any recent years) along those lines.

      Secondly, "no man knows of the day, nor the hour...) Jesus' own words.

      I am a believer, but anyone trying to put a date on this event, is not credible. (Not on the subject of the end times, anyway.) The end will surely come, but when?   ....we'll have to wit and see!

      BTW, I will not be cancelling my plans for that day (May 21 2011). lol

      So does that mean the 2012 prophesy is bogus? And I was so looking forward to that one.

      Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away. "But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only. As were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of man. For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and they did not know until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of man. (Matthew 24:35-39 RSV)

    It could be a lot funnier.  They've started with a great idea, ridiculous nonsense plus some religious twaddle, but then they've just kept on and on with it.  I scanned it, but there were no further jokes.

    If I had to read the whole thing I'd be hoping the End came a bit sooner.

    To be more serious for a moment.  It beggars belief that A) someone would write such a load of boring preposterous crap and B)anybody might read it.

    But hey, if there's money in this stuff I'll knock some out.

    I always wonder what these people do AFTER their promised date.

    Seriously: has anyone ever done a study of the Doomsday nuts?  There is a never ending supply, so finding subjects should not be hard.

    I'm going to bookmark that page. I wonder how long it will be there after May 21.

      They've gone to a lot of effort, and I can't quite see the sales angle.

      You could have your own bumper sticker and spread the word.

      The word being "I'm a nutter" of course.

      But I suspect they are making money out of this.

      I might check up on May 20th just to make sure it's still going ahead.

        I suppose there could be an angle- donations, probably, but I suspect most of these folks are genuine nutters who firmly believe every word.

    There are so many end of days nutters out there, that one day one of them will get the date of the end of the world right purely by chance. They might just be surprised where they get to spend eternity though! LOL smile

    Wow!! How bad can it get. Can I share your B-day cake, I 'm not gonna get one this year.  OMG!!  The math was just too much for me. first one day is a thousand years then a thousand years is one day. I got confused with that one. Which is which? Am I really that old. Dogs get 7 years for one human, but a day is a thousand years so I am too old to count.  Better idea, I think I will ignore this fool and plan a giantic party for my b-day.

    This whole issue is more serious than it appears to people with more than half a brain.

    Yesterday we dropped into a 'church' here in China for material for a 'dicover the real China' hub to support our China holidays website coming soon to find a late-middle aged woman haranguing around 50 people, mostly late-middle aged women, with creationism - which was clearly winding its way to the end of the world. 

    This uses the idea for barnstorming and headline-shocking
    vulnerable people. The spreading of the nonsense goes the same way as 'gossip' mode.  I guess another brand of christian will then turn up with the good news that what those others told them is rubbish and really it is like this . . . . .

    I find myself more and more in support of china's stance that bans proselytising, even though I am a keen defender of free speech generally.

    Ever since man's beginning, he has been hoping for the end.  It gives people a frame by which to set their lives.  There seems something more comforting to some people to believe their end will take place at the same time as the rest of humanity, rather than on their own in some hospital bed.  Even Christ said that the end would happen within the lifetime of the generation then living.  That was 2000 years ago, and still we are waiting. 

    As a former Jehovah's Witness, I knew all about the "End Times."  According to that religion, the end was to be in 1874, then 1914, then 1925, then 1974, then simply within the lifetime of the generation who were old enough to remember the outbreak of the Great War.  Now, Jehovah's Witnesses just say "soon" when asked when it is coming. 

    Of course, our little planet will have an end, just as it had a beginning, but this probably won't be for billions of years.  By then the human race will have long since ceased to be.

    I don't worry about the end. When it comes... it comes! I don't have any control over it, I can't change it or effect it in any way, so there is no sense in worrying about it. However, I can control how I love my life and I can live it as if the end were coming tomorrow and I know it, in fact, we can all live that way, then perhaps we'll be a little kinder to each other.

    If this was true people will be panicking all over the world now. It doesn't make sense and it is just someone's intepretation of the Bible.
