....................

Once upon a time in a land far away, a beautiful, independent, self-assured princess happened upon a frog as she sat contemplating ecological issues on the shores of an unpolluted pond in a verdant meadow near her castle. The frog hopped into the princess' lap and said: Elegant Lady, I was once a handsome prince, until an evil witch cast a spell upon me. One kiss from you, however, and I will turn back into the dapper young prince that I am, and then, my sweet, we can marry and set up housekeeping in your castle with my mother, where you can prepare my meals, clean my clothes, bear my children, and feel forever grateful doing so. That night, as the princess dined sumptuously on a repast of lightly sautéed frogs legs seasoned in a wine and onion cream sauce she chuckled to herself and thought: I don't f*cking think so..

I'm a Christian, yet I think this is a load of bunk. Not even the Son of God himself knows the exact date or time he's coming back. Only God does. To try and predict such a thing is moronic and misleading.

Re: Two weeks til the Rapture

From Wiki:


The Reasoning:

The majority of arguments, or biblical "proofs", in favor of the May 21st end time have come from Camping. A civil engineer by training, Camping states he has attempted to work out mathematically-based prophecies in the Bible for decades. In an interview with SFGate he explained "...I was an engineer, I was very interested in the numbers. I'd wonder, 'Why did God put this number in, or that number in?' It was not a question of unbelief, it was a question of, 'There must be a reason for it.' " [16]

A commonly cited argument in favor of the May 21st date is:

  1. According to Camping, the number five equals "atonement", the number ten equals "completeness", and the number seventeen equals "heaven".
  2. **QWOP** is said to have hung on the cross on April 1, 33 AD. The time between April 1, 33 AD and April 1, 2011 is 1,978 years.
  3. If 1,978 is multiplied by 365.2422 days (the number of days in a solar year, not to be confused with the lunar year), the result is 722,449.
  4. The time between April 1 and May 21 is 51 days.
  5. 51 added to 722,449 is 722,500.
  6. (5 x 10 x 17)2 or (atonement x completeness x heaven)2 also equals 722,500.

Thus, Camping concludes that 5 x 10 x 17 is telling us a "story from the time **QWOP** made payment for our sins until we're completely saved.

 

 

 

 

 

A few problems right off of the bat:

1. He doesn't explain why the numbers equal those words.

2. When was the date of his death mentioned in the Bible?

6. Why are we multiplying the numbers? Why are we squaring the products? Why not cube since we live in three dimensions?

I hope the people who think they'll be raptured have taken the necessary measures to ensure their pets are well cared for post-rapture. Otherwise someone in heaven might deem them unworthy of rapture, and their souls might get sent back to Earth to suffer with the rest of us heathens.

Anyway, I'm still shooting for my birthday next year as the end of the world. Ancient Mayan wisdom vs. contemporary radio show preacher… yeah, my money's on the Mayans. 2012 or bust, baby.

Also, his Family Radio is broadcasted near where I live, so I sometimes stop and listen when I'm flipping channels. Crazy beliefs aside, he's got a great voice for radio.

I might go to hell, but at least I can be amongst those down there who can claim to have died in the f*cking apocalypse.

Or, really, you were a Nazi and were shot during WWII?
Interesting... took the f*cking apocalypse to kill me!

Although maybe the other people in Hell would look down on you.
I died having an aneurysm during pre-marital sex. You?

So wait, some day God is just going to bust into Jezuz's room, throw him a coat, and tell him it's on?

 

I mean, wouldn't it be more corteus to give him some advanced notice or something?

God would never let us know when the raid's going down.  It would give us time to hide the stash.

I was talking about Jezus, he could be doing anything when God decides it's time.

What if he's like... in the middle of a tennis match with like, I don't know, whoever invented duct tape? I'm sure that guy got into heaven. I'm also sure he'd be really bummed about losing his doubles parter just because the apocalypse is going down.

Or what if he's beating it? That would be an awkward start to Armageddon, wouldn't it?
