May 21, 2011: Judgement Day?

Today, I heard some talk about judgement day or whatever on May 21, 2011. What is this bull? Can someone explain?

I'm an atheist by the way.

    That is the day when,, as usual, nothing happens and the claims are proven false that we judge the makers and their religion a laughingstock as usual!

    Well, Harold Camping from Family Radio started this campaign and the message has reached the entire globe... he figured out the date through some Biblical calculations. When the Flood occurred, God warned Noah that He would destroy the world in 7 days. If you turn to the New Testament in 2 Peter 3:8, there is a reference to the Flood and it says to note that "one day is as a thousand with the Lord." Harold Camping somehow figured out the exact date that the Flood occurred and added 7000 years (7x1000) and came up with the date May 21, 2011.

    Daniel 12:11 states that "From the time that the daily sacrifice is abolished and the abomination that causes desolation is set up, there will be 1,290 days [until Christ comes on earth]". So, if the 'Abomination of Desolation' is set up TODAY! ! !, Yes TODAY ! ! ! then Christ's second coming will surpass May 21, 2011 with a huge amount.

    Don't worry neither May 21, 2011 nor 21 December 2012 will end this world.

    Just another attempt to scare people

    1000 AD, people thought the world was gonna end. It didnt, so they built cathedrals

    One pope predicted that Muhammeds Birthday + 666 would be the end of the world. Never happened

    Many other predictions. Never happened.

    2000(Y2k) never happened. The computers are running just fine

    The mayans 2012 calendar. Another Hoax

    Some secrets of Medjudgorge are supposed to be revealed. Not gonna happen. Except the only thing thats gonna end is that cult, and all those people who played with magic clothes and dirt are gonna be disappointed.

    So this May 21, 2011 is another hoax.

    Just like Hell

    Its another fear hoax.

    Harold Camping and his Family Radio cult are behind the May 21 end-time nonsense. Only God knows when the world would end. Here are the following links on Harold Camping's false teachings:

    All we have to do is prepare for the unexpected, but May 21st will just be another day.

    It's just another "only in the USA", coo coo yip yap thing, like the 2012 rubbish. I truly feel sorry for the gullible people who actually believe in this utter poppycock. I hope they don't mass suicide or shoot there whole family, physically hurt themselves, or give all there possessions away.

    Like all those gullible young Americans persons did in the Applegate moonies cult. That was a horrible tragedy these young persons being led to believe in similar utter nonsense. Or those poor kids all being sexually molested in that end of the world cult, in New Mexico

    It's ironic how all these end of the world and biblical rapture events are all, US date and time.

    Someone calculated dates in the Bible (or something like that) and came up with 2011 as the year when the world will end. When nothing happens, they'll all move on to the 2012 prediction. When that doesn't happen, they'll move on to 2015. When that doesn't happen, they'll move on to 2020. And then 2025. And then 2030. And then 2040. And then 2050. And on and on.

    There's some kind of well-known christian priest who is apparently predicting the Rapture for that date, on the basis of some kind of arcane Bible Code calculations or something. I seem to recall the same guy also made a prediction for it to happen several years ago, and updated it to 2011 after that failed. This kind of goalpost-shifting is quite common among doomsday prophets.

    Asked and answered probably over 2,000 times. Yeah sure...

    MARK 13: 32 - 33:

    “Concerning that day or the hour nobody knows, neither the angels in heaven nor the Son, but the Father. Keep looking, keep awake, for YOU do not know when the appointed time is"...

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

    There ya go, brainwave.

    Not surprising. After all Christians can hardly rely on pagan Mayans to correctly predict the end of the world can they? I mean what's this world coming to?
