  1. Man, as a firm believer in Jesus and in the Bible, I don’t see how people can buy into this guy’s crap. It’s one thing for him to be a coniving con artist but how can so many people who claim to know the Bible believe someone who says he knows when the end is coming? Apparently they are not actually reading the Bible or they are just allowing their silly minds and shallow hearts to be pushed around by a wackjob.

  2. Yikes! I mean, how many times do we have to hear about the “end times” before people start wondering if any of them are actually right? I think it definitely is an interesting aspect of human nature though. I’ll be waiting for Zombies right there with you!

    1. I suggest you ignore the CDC’s advice and pack a good shotgun, at least 100 rounds of 00 buck, and if you happen to be owed a favor by the right people, some Dragon’s Breath and a 5-gallon jerrycan of gasoline.

  3. I appreciate the “rolling rapture” aspect of it occurring at 6pm in each time zone. It shows a level of divine wisdom in preventing crowding at the Pearly Gates… or wherever Rev. Camping’s followers are going to be lining up.

    I seem to recall reading a passage about “no man knows the hour of His reappearing” but maybe I’m wrong. Disagreements over scripture are what happen when you read for yourself instead of accepting someone else’s opinion — or sales pitch — based on one, perhaps obscure, out-of-context verse.

    1. Matthew 24:36, from the King James: “But of that day and hour knoweth no [man], no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.”

      also, the zombies come from 1 Thessalonians 4:16, also King James: “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first”

      1. See? There you go, right there. It would be very easy for some slick, religionist salesman (like Camping) to add, “… and the dead who are NOT in Christ shall rise second, and shamble mindlessly across the land munching on brains.”

        Maybe we should be prepared for zombies, tomorrow. They don’t have a history of reading or thinking for themselves. A few ill-informed corpses might pop up, not knowing that it’s not the REAL rapture.

        1. I’m already investigating how large a pump would be required to feed gasoline from a tanker truck into the cemetary’s sprinkler system. I figure we can re-route the water line and be ready by 5:30 if hands start popping out of the ground. I should be able to get ahold of the tanker and the pump, but I’m not sure how much tequila it’s going to take to get the groundskeepers on board. God will provide, I’m sure.

  4. And Lo, the Typosphere Doth Take a Turn for the Weird. (Pretty normal for us, honestly.)

    Let’s see: an end-of-the-world prediction based on numerology and a literal reading of an English translation of the Bible by someone who has predicted (incorrectly) this sort of thing before? What could possibly go wrong?

    1. Well, I suppose it *could* happen. As a Believer, have you planned for the post-Rapture care of your beloved family pets?

  5. I enjoy the new apocalyptic predictions every few years. Personally, I don’t see how this prediction for 6pm today could possibly be right because the world is clearly supposed to end in 2012. Or does it end today and re-end again a little over a year later? Oh, wait, wait… I think I’ve got it: The world ends today, the undead rise up, and then the zombie world ends in 2012.

    1. Well, Sunday morning, and I’m still here, and the dead still rest. I guess Rev Camping’s eatin’ crow again.
