“Judgment Day” is May 21, 2011


Well I want to pass on, and I have it on good authority, that the world is going to start to end on Saturday, May 21st, according to Family Radio Worldwide and a number of religious believers. This ubiquitous prophecy that is posted on more than 5,000 billboards, posters, fliers and digital bus displays across the country. “Family Radio,” based in Oakland, Calif., is a nonprofit evangelical Christian group that has declared May 21, 2011, as the day of Armageddon. It has been funding the campaign to spread the word through an outreach program it calls "Project Caravan." Tom Evans, a spokesman for Family Radio, said the doomsday date is based on a complicated reading of the Bible and calculations that stem from the "7,000 year anniversary of the flood."

Family Radio also predicts massive earthquakes will strike all over the world on May 21, 2011 to herald the second coming of Jesus Christ. How do these Ultra Right Conservative Christians come to this date…..Because the Bible is written in CODE and Harold Camping has broken this CODE.

The thousands of billboards and fliers are Family Radio's way of blowing the trumpet. The radio network, which has 66 stations in the United States, is headed by Harold Camping.

A former civil engineer turned radio host, Camping, 89, is the president of Family Radio and is touring the country to spread his message of impending doom. It has been funding the campaign to spread the word through an outreach program it calls "Project Caravan."

Members of his fundamentalist flock show up to his presentations sporting yellow T-shirts, cheerfully disseminating word that the “Rapture” is almost here. The signs on their RVs proclaim, "Have you heard the awesome news? The End of the World is almost here."

Tom Evans said, “Camping and his followers believe in a literal interpretation of the Bible. It is a manifestation of God's word." (OK….?)

While Family Radio says it has faith in the Bible, it has no use for organized religion and believes Catholics and Protestants, among others, have corrupted the word of God.
"If you're a Christian, you know that God does not elevate any man above any other man," Evans said.

Now one LITTLE draw back in the group's campaign is that Camping has predicted the end of the world before: in 1994, but Evans said, “Camping was thrown off a correct calculation because of some verses in Matthew 24." So when 1994 came and went, Camping headed back to the drawing board and came up with May 21.

So to all of my readers, I’m sure he got it right this time. (Yea Right)

So remember “Judgment Day” is May 21, 2011 and be sure to keep this day open for any plans.

These Ultra Right Conservative Christians also pass on the Bible passage:
“And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented FIVE MONTHS: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.” Revelation 9:5

This of course makes “The End of the World” October 21, 2011.

But before you start selling off your belongings, you might want to check your math. The real earth ending won’t arrive for another five billion years from now, when the sun runs out of hydrogen, evolutionary biologist and author, Richard Dawkins, claims.

I don’t know about you but I’m going with Science and Dawkins.

  1. It seems as if another group has entered the billboard wars in Camping's/Family Radio's back yard of Oakland, CA. They are disputing Camping's claims with a compelling message of "Jesus is already here." Here's the billboard photo:

  2. You know, America is the only place where there are large enough gaggles of idiots to actually worry about things like this.
    As Sun Ra said, "It's already after the end of the world. Don't you know that?"
    And the sax players kept right on screechin!

    ...which is aided and abetted by the 24/7 barrage of right-wingnut blather that keeps these people stirred=up and agitated.

  4. Hello MIcrodot and Muddy,
    Yes and I am sure they all call themselves and vote Religious Conservative Republicans. I see them all too often.

    The Fox Programing and Conservative Radio's job is to keep "Whipping Up The Nut Jobs."

  6. Hello, Engineer of Knowledge!

  7. Hello Microdot,
    book published in 1988 that claimed the world would end that year...It's out of print now...

    I loved this comment. I wonder what excuse Harold Camping and Tom Evans will give to their lemming followers when the sun rises on May 22?

    Maybe Jack is right and Armaggedon will only happen to "The Family Radio" programming.

  8. Actually, the quote of week regarding religion was made by Stephen Hawking. He said that Heaven was just a fairy tale and that morality was based on actions calculated for the best possible results.
    That got all of the Fundie's tighty whiteys twisted.....

  9. Hello Microdot,
    As you know me well enough...I've got to go with science, Stephen Hawkings, and Richard Dawkins.

    It's good to have you back from the farm. I check out your postings everyday. Keep up the good work my friend.

  10. MAybe if these people close their eyes, click their heels and say "there's no place like home!"

    Of course, we have until Saturday at 6PM to laugh.

    Then, we can really laugh!

    Survived another scare.

    They just need to reread their book of fairy tales:
    Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away. But of that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone. Mark 13:31-32

    He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or epochs which the Father has fixed by His own authority; Acts 1:7
