May 21st 2011 aka “Doomsday” or “Judgement Day”

So apparently we are all going to die tomorrow. Apparently tomorrow is “Judgement Day” and our own true story remake of 2012.
All I can do is shake my head at this.

What is wrong with our society where we have to keep making up apocalyptic dates for ourselves, just to keep life interesting? I also wonder if Atheist just make up these dates so that afterwards they can say “SEE! THERE IS NO GOD!” Calm down.

So why is tomorrow suddenly Dooms Day? Mostly this guy:

He basically decided that tomorrow is Doomsday and spent his entire life savings, $140,000, trying to get the word out. Now everyone is whispering about it, just because he says so.

Am I the only one who remembers last year when they were going to do a bunch of risky science procedures and we thought it was going to be the end of the world? So a bunch of people killed themselves and suddenly we are still here? Uhhhmm.

So why does Harold Camping think tomorrow is the end of days. Two reasons, number one being:

Genesis 7:4, when God said to Noah: “Seven days from now I will send rain on the earth for forty days and forty nights, and I will wipe from the face of the earth every living creature I have made.”
When God referred to seven days, he meant both seven days and seven thousand years, because “one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” The flood occurred in 4990 BC. Seven thousand years later is 2011. From GodlikeProductions.com

If the flood did in fact happen, I didn’t know they had an actual date for that, at least I’ve never heard of one. Where is Harold getting these dates? Besides, wouldn’t 7000 years past 4990 BC be 2010? Which math classes did he attend?
The second reason, making it even more less credible, would be this:

The second proof looks at the significance of the number of days between the Crucifixion and May 21, 2011.
There are 722,500 days between these dates. 722,500 is a significant number because it is composed of the significant numbers 5x10x17x5x10x17. Five signifies redemption; ten signifies completion; and 17 signifies heaven. The numbers represent the day of redemption (5) and the Christian era (10) and the ascent to heaven (17) –and these factors are doubled for added significance From GodlikeProductions.com

Wow, yeah totally. 5x10x17x5x10x17 make perfect sense to me now. We are definitely going to die tomorrow. I’m so glad he brough that up, because I didn’t want to say it. 5x10x17x5x10x17, of course.

That’s a load of rubbish. 5x10x17x5x10x17? That’s gibberish. It’s a stupid math equation. And what the phrase “and these factors are doubled for added significance” means to me is that they tried working this equation the first time and we didn’t die, so they doubled it to see if we would die the second time. I mean, I could take 3 random numbers too, give them a supposed meaning, multiply and double them and then say that number of days since a certain date is Doomsday. There is no basis for that one.

Now Harold is saying that tomorrow is just the beginning of a 6 month period of Doomsday. The world will completely end on October 21, 2011. Well, where is his equation of that one? I just think that is him saying that if it doesn’t happen tomorrow, he has 6  months to still profess these things and have attention on him. He is covering his tracks.
And don’t worry, if we don’t die by October 21, 2011 LUCKILY next year is 2012 and we can look forward to that one. Honestly, do we just have some death complex nowadays?

I wonder if Harold Camping is a gypsy or a fortune-teller. Otherwise I don’t believe a word he says.

  1. I’m just curious. Today is judgement day, and nothing’s happened yet. If you’re in a time zone before me, will you shoot me a message and let me know what’s happening? Have you been ‘judged’?

  2. I am still really bummed, i mean if you can’t trust the creepy radio preacher who looks like the guy for the movie poltergeist, to tell you when the world is going to end ? then who can you trust?

    I liked the newspaper who reported that some guy was in the parking lot of the radio station, and he said he was there to say that he knew the world was not going to eand and that the people there should not feel like just cause this one radio guy,(who i feel it does need to be pointed out looks far to much like the bad guy form a scary movie, whose live is there are coming for you..and your all gonna die..,) got it wrong, does not mean that God had abandononed them.

    i think that is really living out your faith.

    i wish i had thought of doing that.

    1. He does look like a creeper. Way too much like one.
      I feel sorry for people who quit their jobs or went and did something crazy because they thought the world was ending. And the Riot? Geez, we are so easily sturred up.
      Imagine how stupid Harold feels now there.
