    I think he is an old man that has done too much thinking and has nothing better to do than come up with this garbage. Isn't he the same one that made a lot of money off of people preaching this stuff. I'll be honest and say I can't quote the bible, but it's in there and I believe it-I don't think any of us will ever know when the end is coming and I for one, prefer it that way.

    I forgot, today is the day! Again!

    (See, now why can't the WBC be more like Rev. Camping? He is wacky. But no one cares because, as far as I know, it's harmless wackiness.)

    I'm not religious, but I recall a Jesus quote to that effect.

    Anyone who thinks the world going to end on a given day is welcome to deed me their savings effective the day after!

    That explains why I had one of my best rounds of golf today. Like the Preacher in Caddy Shack. The days not over yet so I'll be keeping an eye open for the lightning bolts to start flying. And tell me again why this guy keeps getting coverage? Oh yeah, comic relief :) I'll wait for the 'real' Doomsday in 2012 !

    We still have 2 1/2 hours on the east coast of the US. I wonder if anybody to the east of us is still alive?

    But did you get a hole in one, Biak? Or would that fall into the Hell Freezing Over category? And I am not sure how Hell freezing over works if the world is ending as I am pretty sure God intends to use the hot, burning Hell when it does.

    Do you suppose the end of the world follows time zones?

    9:08 PM where I'm at.
    The feeling is intense. I'm so tired I'll probably sleep through the destruction.

    Now that I think about it; a 77 doesn't constitute an End of The world type of accomplishment. Wait, the Preacher died - the World didn't end then either?? No, No hole in one, still waiting for one of those. :) Maybe Dec. 21, 2012.
    Anyone hear from our pals 'down under' lately?

    Nope....good thing it didn't end, or we would've wasted all that money we'd already put down on plane tickets and hotel reservations. And the kiddo would never have gotten to experience her first roller-coaster (one of the smaller ones at the Harry Potter section of Universal Studio's "Islands of Adventure"...actually not a bad roller coaster for younger kids, but I was surprised when she got off the thing, grinning from ear to ear...she's only 2.75! Yeah...that's my girl!).

    Seriously...if this guy is a Reverend, he's probably read the Bible at some point. One would hope, at any rate. I'm not a smart guy, but I at least knew about this verse (had to look up the exact book/chapter/verse, darn dyslexic braincell...): Matthew 24:36-44 NIV - The Day and Hour Unknown But about that - Bible Gateway So, when someone pops out and says the world is gonna end on _____ date or between ____ and ____, I pretty much know that its not gonna happen anywhere near those dates. I'll sleep really easy on the night of Dec 21, 2012. And wake up normally the next morning.

    Back in the news (sort of), if being in the "weird" section counts.

    SAN FRANCISCOA California preacher who convinced thousands of followers that the world would end has posted an online letter conceding he has no evidence of an impending apocalypse and will no longer predict global doom.

    I'm not sure why this is in the "weird" section. That's where his past headlines belong. Apparently, Mr. Camping has finally decided that the person he claims to follow was right 2,000 years ago: Matthew 24:35-37.

    Why don't you just hang onto it until the world ends next time and have a Spam party? You could invite all of us.

    Ulrich, I think you're on to something. Urqh can supply the Spam and mints, you contribute the name, and I'll be the silent partner and take 75% of the profits. After all, that's what silent partners do.:D

    Surely a "Reverend" knows that the world CANT end until the thousand year reign of Christ on Earth...So the world cant end for at least another thousand years...And hes a christian??
    Psychologists say that this is something a certain type of person "needs"...they feel insecure not knowing their future...so they make it up and fervently beleive in it to...well, effectively calm themselves. Alot of mucking around for self therapy if you ask me.

    I will still carry my BOB in my car...along with several ammo cans full of rations, and of course ammo, and guns. Not for the end of the world...just for ya know, a Sunday drive.
