Well, honestly... the rapture *did* happen as planned...

... just in reality nobody here on planet earth was worthy of being taken.

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

Chin up everyone, 2012 is just around the corner.

Well this atheist was sorely disappointed. I was out at 6:00 keeping an eye on houses to loot. Nobody got raptured here though. And the cops weren't impressed with my reasons for carrying a running chain saw around either.

Well, the 21st passed without incident. Another doomsday scenario that never unfolded can now be put to rest and we can go on with our lives.

Until Dec 21, 2012, when the world will end because some mayans said so - and they are known for never being wrong.

Well, the Mayan calendar still predicts solar and lunar eclipses accurately to this day.
What exactly has the Bible accurately predicted so far?

Well it is pretty easy to predict solar and lunar eclipses, as they happen cyclically. But the real problem is that no mayan artifacts exist that say anything about an apocalypse or other major event. It is simply one calendar ending, to begin a new one. When the 19th century ended, we didn't all go out and kill ourselves, we started the 20th century. That is all the mayan calendar is.

The Maya calendar certainly didn't predict the demise of the Means now did it?

As far as predicting eclipses and such... our own Farmers Almanac predicts and is accurate about a great many things...

The date of the Crucifixion is 29 AD.

DOB was 5 BC.

The mystical date was 4 years ago.

How do you know it didn't really happen ?
All those believers are gone now, we just don't miss them.
And, it wasn't the people everybody expected.

Well, apparently there are only 144,000 who get a pass.
We all know how Jesus felt about rich people.

Could be that it was only 144,000 homeless people from around the world. Nobody has missed them, and those who saw them ascend are being treated like nutters.

^^^...that this world is still a non-prophet organization!!!!......

------------------------

If anybody's interested, check out this link (below) on how this guy Camping reacted when he realized that the world wasn't ending as he predicted.....he was "flabberghasted"......it also says that some follower in NYC spent $140k of HIS OWN money to forewarn everybody about this rapture.

some of the bloggers are funny as hell.......in one blogg, it mentions how this guy (who spent all money) might have some left over to buy an "azz-kicking" machine for himself!

I'm an atheist, what am I suppose to be relieved about? You think atheist are stupid enough to believe some god we don't believe in is going to end the world and bring us all to judgment? Do you not understand what being an atheist means? And if all the people who say they'd rather be safe than sorry could explain if you are only playing it safe, are you saying you believe in a god you can fool? Yeah, I don't think it's any atheists who are relieved, I think it's the people who say they believe but don't follow what they preach.

..the very thing that's got you in a huff about not feeling that you should need to be relieved!


You think atheist are stupid enough to believe some god we don't believe in


No way, i think "you Atheists" are way to smart to believe in something that you've no way of knowing if it exists........we gotta get up pretty early in da morning to pull a fast one over on you guys (and gals)?



Do you not understand what being an atheist means?


sadly i do!.....i guess it means that you can't yell out "Oh my God" when you are having an orgasm (assuming you've ever had one).......it must be ruff to have to yell out..... "Oh you non-existent being that I don't believe in"...instead!!!!



are you saying you believe in a god you can fool?


Hmmmm...is that what i "said"?


I don't think it's any atheists who are relieved, I think it's the people who say they believe but don't follow what they preach.


Amen to that Sistah!!!..........ain't nuthin like a spirit filled atheist tellin it like it is!!!

He's claiming his math was wrong, and now its *really* going to happen, on October 21st!


Y'know, the guy in NYC who blew $140K on those ads, well... his own stupidity really.
But worse, on Yahoo today:

http://news.yahoo.com/s/livescience/20110524/sc_livescience/faileddoomsdayhasrealdeadlyconsequences


A California woman named Lyn Benedetto was one of millions who heard Camping's message, and became concerned that her daughters would suffer terribly in the coming apocalypse. She allegedly forced her daughters, 11 and 14, to lie on a bed and then cut their throats with a box cutter. She then tried to kill herself, though police arrested Benedetto and all three survived.

Others were not so lucky. An elderly man in Taiwan reportedly killed himself on May 5 ahead of the Rapture by jumping out of a building. He had heard that doomsday was imminent, and had taken recent earthquakes and tsunamis as early warning signs.

There were other unconfirmed reports of doomsday-related suicides around the world as well.


Its sad to think that people could take this *so* seriously as to want to kill themselves, or their children...

Its May 26, 2011.... I am still here... are you? that was awkward...


Well, you earthlings still have a lot to learn, so many were left behind as the few of us truly worthy ascended..
I don't see that 89yr old codger up here, so maybe he wasn't pure enough.. At least we have decent internet up here in the clouds with the Ori

I will give you an address in Africa to wire all your money to, since you may not be needing any after October 21st..
