      He's from Boulder Co.

      Figures...hippies

      There was an entire town where people are gathering for this...can't find the story right now.

      This was actually thought up by some loony Scotsman in the 17th century, if I remember correctly.

      Has no mention in the...let's say...ancient writings.

            Actually there is a guy here in Australia who is claiming that he is Jesus and he has memories of when he was here on earth 2000 years ago. His girlfriends name is Mary and she is apparently Mary Magdaline who was on earth with Jesus 2000 years ago.

    Oh no, you may be safe. That is the supposed rapture. Only certain people will be taken and the rest will remain. This means shorter lines at Six Flags, less traffic jams, and you might actually be able to get tickets to that playoff game or concert without it selling out in ten minutes. . . The actual world according to them is Oct.21 of this year when the earth will be swallowed by flames, which is 13,000 years since the world and man were created. Since I heard it was really 12.21.12, I think there is a 14 month discrepency, so the only logical, fair thing to do is compromise both camps and put it right in the middle . . . May 21, 2012. This arbitrary date shall be the arbitrary end to an arbitrary argument. . . Don't blame me for making this up, I saw it on another forum with dates of all the points and all.

    Man I feel sorry for the person that gives all their money away to charity or spends it on some lavish last week in preparation. Well, I guess, they wouldn't get taken anyway, but giving everything away = bad. Waking up penniless is horrible. And also, please don't go killing yourselves either thinking there's some modified way.

      Man, I just haven't been able to sleep over all this.

      For some reason I'm having trouble finding out which time zone is zero hour for the event.

      And now that other planets have been found I'm not sure it's actually our planet or another planet that this is going to happen on. I'm mean let's face it, everyday in the universe several stars (suns) end it all.

      What am going to tell my list :confused:

    Hey it's the rapture - why should I worry about it? I'm not goin' anywhere. Think of all the open parking spaces - no more lines at the stores or DMV - lots of job openings. Less pollution. I'm thinkin' I'm not going to miss those hundreds of millions at all.

    WOW! I thought this was supposed to be NEXT year!

    Heysal,

    I shouldn't say this, but let's just say a group said they would get their way today, if it all happened. WHAT would be the point? I mean with all evil and god gone, so the devil would take over. If God exists, the devil surely must! MAN! I have said all along THIS place could have been heaven. People seem to REALLY want to make it a HELL. Lives, money, resources, time, and COMFORT have ALL been spent with literal ABANDON to hurt OTHERS. If I had one TRILLIONTH the amount so spent, I would be VERY rich and virtually immortal. It is THAT incredible. With nothing to counter the extreme bad, I doubt anyone can imagine how bad it could become, even WITHOUT a devil.

    BTW did you know Satan exists!?!?!? It's true! He, and she, is ALL AROUND US! Ha Satan in hebrew isn't a name, it's a title. It translates roughly to the oppressor, or adversary.

    Well, it's after midnight on Sunday in Eastern Australia, and no-one here has been raptured away.

    Either that means we're all sinners, or the "end of the world" was another load of old bollocks.

    I'm putting my money on the latter.

    What would really make me laugh though is if the ones awaiting the rapture were the only ones left behind.

      Apparently now, some of these "end of days" folks are saying "no, May 21 is the START of the end of days, not the end." So, apparently May 21 was judgement day, and the actual rapture is coming Oct 21 or something.

      So, we have been given a temporary reprieve. I wonder - what if I was bad on May 21, but otherwise fantastically good? Why is judgement reserved for one single earth day? Is it a paperwork thing?
