We're just over 20 minutes from the end of the world, and the sky is gradually darkening, and the ball of fire appears to be going. This seems ominous


Still there?

List of dates predicted for apocalyptic events

i think it's interesting that people always predict the end of the world based on their sphere of influence.
  • The world is going to end b/c Jesus' return (say Christians) even though Jesus doesnt exist. Why Jesus? Perhaps vishnu returns to earth instead. oh, right, b/c their sphere of influence is so small.
  • Another group thinks the world is going to end due to a nuclear war. they say this b/c it's 1967 and in the middle of the Cold War.
  • 2280 - According to Rashad Khalifa's research on the Quran Code, the world will end in this year.
It's all such quaint thinking, isnt it?

Yep. You can even have people as brilliant as Newton making these absurd predictions:

Isaac Newton: Newton predicted that Christ's Millennium would begin in the year 2000 in his book Observations upon the Prophecies of Daniel, and the Apocalypse of St. John.


Smart people can be wrong.

So when is the next "doomsday" supposed to occur? Or is it too soon for the crazies to decide on that?

"Beshore bases his prediction on Hal Lindsey's failed 1988 prediction that Jesus would return within one biblical generation of the founding of Israel in 1948. Lindsey stated a biblical generation was 40 years. Beshore argues that Lindsey's prediction was correct, but that his definition of a biblical generation was incorrect, which is actually 70–80 years, placing the Second Coming of Jesus between 2018 and 2028."

can anyone read this and not laugh?
