It must be true. There's already an article on wikipedia.

Didn't we all have this same conversation in 1999 about 2000?

Can't argue with that???
Right, so let me take a stab at it then with a bit of logical thinking:

The number 6 equals 6 well... 6. The moment you associate any number to something, that's where ALL “proof is thrown out the window”? This od course put the rest of your thought... 100% irrelivant.

There has been TONS of people throught the ages who had come up with dooms day dates who were all “provan” and who ended up just being nothing more than just a fear they had thought of and this one, is no different, if you ask me.

A little known fact but the world actually ended in 1914 - they just haven't finished the paperwork yet.

Did it get run over by a bulldozer in order to put in a galactic superhighway?

It will likely be the end of Kaddafis delusional world, but the beginning of free Libya enroute to an eventual democracy that we ALL will be celebrating!


NATO almost got Qaddafi today! Soon it will BE the end of HIS world, unless he leaves on his own..

Well, normaldude, in fairness and accuracy to the believers, it is NOT true that "religions like to bring up the spectre of the end of the world to recruit and keep in line members", at least not for the most part. Many of them DO urge their followers (and non-followers) to recognize their OWN mortality, because many of them follow a formula that "doing it right" in the real world will determine your fate in the next. Most mainstream religious leaders know full well that actually setting a date is a good way to ruin your reputation, and actually isn't the kind of encouragement they want to give their flocks anyway.

this person, Harold Camping, still has lots of money in his name, and is owner of more than a few radio stations.


HC is renown for his numerologic forecasts, as he has erroneously predicted the earth's demise at least 2 times before....and each time he's claimed that he was certain of his prediction, but when it not come to light, he'd explain that he did not calculate properly......with each new prediction, he claims to have further insight that he didn't have previously (as he says he has now).........i'm sure he'll use that same excuse if he is incorrect again!......it would be interesting to see what his followers do, if his prediction falls flat again!

its noteworthy to say that HC's predictions are of his own, and he doesn't speak for any other denomination.

One of my co-workers was out to dinner night before last, and saw a guy with a sandwich board marching up and down the sidewalk - The world will end May 21st! AND there was one of those vans too...

It's so sad! People being taken advantage of like that, it's ruining lives and families.

While I certainly hold my own beliefs, this is (granted a pretty extreme) example of why I'm not a big fan of ORGANIZED religions - people can twist things to their own purposes.

the sad thing is that this organization spent MILLIONS of dollars on billboards and advertising to get the so called "truth" out. If a religion really wanted to make a good impression on god wouldnt it be better to try and help less fortunates with that cash instead of wasting it on such a stupid pursuit? The only product of all that wasted money I have seen is a few friends are having end of the world party,s this saturday!!!
The theme is "party like its the end of the world!!!"" could be a few world ending hangovers on sunday when they wake up and see we are all still here....

There are a couple of IDIOTS right now on KUSI news at the San Ysidro border crossing handing out EOT flyers, one of them got 3 minutes to talk LIVE on the morning news !!

Guess you can't blame the TV stations for giving them airtime on a slow news day.. I DEMAND equal time for the majority of us rational skeptics !!

now the guy will come on tv and say he made a slight calcualation error and its a few more years down the road so he can exert control for that extended time over all the morons who follow him.....Orrrrrrrr he has gathered all his most loyal members together and mixed up some deadly cool-aid and manufactured his own private end of the world!!!!???????

It is a sad coment on the human condition that people still fall for this crap

OK ... why are we still here?

I had to laugh when I picked up my 20 year old from work last night.
Two girls bet him that the world would end today.
He's up $15.

God they are stupid.
If they won, they still wouldn't get any money.
Now they have to pay out.

lol

If there was anything to be worried about in the first place maybe.

Chin up everyone, 2012 is just around the corner.
