The End



Get ready folks. For those of you who can't wait for the world to end in 2012 when the Mayan Calendar runs out you may have a closer opportunity for rapture. A fundamentalist Christian group, "We Can Know", has recently paid for a series of billboards in Florida, Indiana, Ohio and other places around the United States. These billboards state prominently that Jesus Christ will return on May 21st, 2011.

Religious groups often claim the end near and often tell us what year and date it's going to happen. Joseph Smith, founder of the Mormons announced that Jesus would return within 56 years -- i.e. before 1891-FEB-15.

Usually after being wrong most groups pipe down and stop predicting, but not so with the Jehovah's Witnesses Watch Tower Society who have unsuccessfully predicted the world would end in the following years: 1914, 1915, 1918, 1920, 1925, 1941, 1975 and 1994.

But, who am I to criticize? I have the most unsuccessful death pool predictions here on this blog every year on January 1st, yet I'll probably do it again next year.

Only two more and you win the 52" flat screen teevee!

These fools who keep predicting the end of the world... None of them realize that it already happened. On July 5th 1998 at 1:15pm the entire planet was destroyed then replaced with an exact duplicate in the blink of an eye. It's not scheduled to happen again for at least another thousand years. Don't these people read the schedule?

He's coming back?? Jeez, with our luck he'll move to Astoria, become an "artist", become a KMUN programmer, a Co-op member then run for county commissioner on the anti-everything platform!! No matter what, Clatsop County just can't catch a break.

If the rapture comes I'll get 100% on the death pool this year.

The billboards are here in Central Virginia. We saw the first one last summer between East Jesus and Roanoke.

My personal theory ... since the Bible says no one can know the time of The Christ's return, He obviously won't return when predicted. LOL

Walt, I predict he'll come back as a she.

One needs to be ready when you live in Brownsmead during the rainy season.
