Here's the genius who figured it out: //en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harold_Camping

What intrigues me is that he's the president of "Family Radio," a huge Christian syndicate of radio stations. Surely, they have nothing scheduled after the 21st? Dead air?

Thought we were seeing a preview on Saturday, May 14, 2011. But, no, it was just an awesome inversion layer.

Cracks me up that there is actually controversy on the correct date!

Probably the same thing that happened after September, 1994, the date of his last crackpot prediction for the end of the world. They'll have to announce some cosmic snooze button, postponement, or calculator error. I wouldn't be surprised if a radio station placed a prank call to the guy on the 22nd and noted the mysterious disappearance of thousands of people all over the world and, what... you weren't one of them?"

(bold is mine) -- an apt description, I feel.

kinda like that booklet thing in 1988. 88 reasons Jesus will come back in '88. i guess they meant 2088. or maybe 2188 or something.

Claims like this dude's just make me shake my head.

So no believers on DPCHALLENGE?? :(

Was looking forward to a 1Ds mark iii and 1D mark iv. I'll need the weather sealing for the hazardous weather after the dooms date.

According to that guy the Rapture is happening in 5 days not the end of the world. Thats in 5 months time so basically it's the squares going to bed early and then 5 months of partying! Yay!
05/16/2011 02:22:14 PM · #15
Ahh yes, just shows you there truly are all kinds of people. There this news article I read about the people who listen to him, and that they have quit their jobs, left their families and are traveling around the country in RV's telling everyone Rapture is coming. Tho apparently there is nothing you can do about it.

I like the one part, where it says, if your still here on the 22nd, you wernt chosen.. so your screwed :) (ok I paraphrased)

I can't believe that anyone would believe this!

Everyone knows that the world comes to an end in 2012.

I thought you needed one of those truss things for a rapture? You get them lifting big heavy cameras, so send me the big ones and that will save you getting one of them raptures.
