A doomsday date for your diary! World 'will end on Friday' says preacher
dailymail ^

Posted on 10/16/2011 4:35:21 PM PDT by traumer

Doomsday preacher Harold Camping was left a laughing stock when his prediction that the world would end on May 21 failed to materialise. But the 90-year-old Californian may well have the last laugh after revealing that date was in fact Judgment Day - a spiritual moment when the righteous would be chosen - and simply a warm-up for the Rapture which happens exactly five months later.

This means that Friday, October 21, will mark the start of the Apocalypse - when believers will be whisked away into heaven and hell will be unleashed on earth.

And cynics should be warned, as the Rapture Index - a monitor of current affairs for the frequency and intensity of end-time signs mentioned in the Bible - is at an almost all-time high.

It now currently stands slightly lower at 180 - only two points below the 182 it reached in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist atrocities. Unrest in the Middle East, the global economic crisis, the famine in the Horn of Africa and the slowing down of recent volcanic activity are all signs that the world is about to end, it claims. The index, created by Terry James in December 1993, adds on its website: 'The Antichrist: The EU now has President. This office could be a precursor to the AC'. James, of Little Rock, Arkansas, said he did not use his table to make predictions, but to measure 'the type of activity that could act as a precursor to the Rapture'.

He said: 'The higher the number, the faster we're moving towards the end.' And he revealed that any figure over 160 made it time to 'fasten the seatbelts'. Camping, a radio evangelist and president of a network of radio stations known as Family Radio, spent up to $100million

Sorry, I'm busy Friday.

So once again he believes he knows more than Jesus does. If he truly understood the bible and had any sense at all he would call himself what we all know him to be, a false prophet.

I’m busy Friday so I’ll pass.

How many doom’s day guys just try to save there chosen few? He is making an effort to tell everyone. None of his followers are drinking cool-aid. You don’t find them wearing tin foil hats in public. Just because he was wrong on May 21, 1988, and September 6, 1994 and May 21, 2011.

The left should embrace this guy. It doesn’t matter about the out come his heart is in the right place His message is the same for everyone. He really feels he is doing good. He is equal opportunity. Only his intentions should matter. Sounds like an Obama voter to me.

Harold Camping has been annoying me since I became a Christian in 1981. I remember sitting in a cubical doing telephone counseling, comforting sincere people who’s faith had been shipwrecked by this impostor.

He is going to have a LOT to answer for, I’m afraid.

Exactly. That is how we can avoid the apocalypse. Every time someone guesses the date God has to reschedule.

Thanks — coming to Irving (Valley Ranch). Got the Riverwalk in my backyard :)

DFW (I fly all the time) is only 7 minutes away.

I am really tired of Cali in so many ways — and am voting with my feet (well, my car).

My house looks like a OWS encampment — stuff EVERYWHERE (except no feces and garbage on the ground of course)... ;)

It's judgment on ESPN.

Anyway, the series is irrelevant anyway.

Great, and I have a vacation that starts this Friday. Wonder if I can get a postponement for say a week or so on the end of the world stuff.

Not asking for much, just a week.

I thought it already ended. Are there some sort of criteria that will verify when it’s finally over?

And who will broadcast or email us with the news? And how will we know they’re for real?

What if they had the apocalypse, and nobody came?

Does this invalidate the singing career of Skeeter Davis?
