This may be my last post.
I was going to buy some bananas today, we are out. But then I remembered about Saturday. They announced on KFI that the world is ending Saturday, May 21st…at 6pm local time. So I did not want them to go to waste, maybe should have bought a small bunch anyway.
There are billboards, radio commercials, printed brochures. Robert Fitzpatrick, a regular guy in New York, spent his entire life savings, $140,000 , on the advertising campaign.
They played the audio of the guy in charge of the organization promoting the end date and I did not recognize the name but I did know the voice. I have heard him on shortwave radio many times. He does a question answer bible study show. His name is Harold Camping. He was always pretty grumpy and short tempered with his callers. Sounds old.
I am no scholar, but even I know “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.” and “the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.” So I wonder how this guy, based on a “close reading of the bible” was able to determine not only that the date could be determined, but was able to calculate the actual date.
In the referenced reference it clearly states that the knowledge is unknowable.
But just to be safe I am not starting any long projects until we know for sure. And I might have an extra scoop of ice cream tonight.
