I think that Sept time-zone is because of the 'Harbinger' thing or that 'Shemata' doo hicky from the Jews not Christianity
Perhaps for some people date-setting is their means of keeping watch.
They convince themselves that end will be by date A, so they prepare like mad to be ready. It doesn't happen, but that's OK. They simply pick a new date to prepare for and begin all over again.
What's important is that they KNOW it will end, so they KNOW they must be ready. The dates are just their means of keeping their eye on the prize so to speak.
We know more than any or most previous generations, and our daily lives involve more sin, small or great, than most "common" folk or majority of people have had to deal with up to this point.
If you had true evidence of God or afterlife, the "veil" between the spirit world or that dimension and this one would've been broken at some point,
If there's no judgement day, at least in 'our' lifetime or in 2016 or even thereafter, all of the under-handed, backstabbing, thieving, manipulating, scamming, evil, cruel (add 100 more adjectives) people who succeeded in their evil ways on Earth will not be punished hereafter. They will not only gain from mistreating their fellow man, but will prosper so long as they are alive. When they die, the money they've gained will help their blood relatives and other loved ones to continue prospering, and so on. That's how it has been going for hundreds, thousands of years even.
The holiest man in the world doesn't get jack because he's walking the street in sack-cloth telling everyone that what they're doing is wrong.
If he takes a different approach and takes on the sin of the world by participating while knowing it's wrong, not only will he destroy himself through depression, but he will be alienated by the people he was trying to fit in with, eventually, because he has morals and ethics that they do not have. If they had them, they wouldn't be doing what they do the way that they do it.
If there is no judgement

Any reason why you believe this to be true?
Care to elaborate on that specific date, and how you came to this conclusion?

I have been keeping an eye on anything 2016 related. I recall David Flynn before his death using some calculations pointing to 2016. Michael Rood has said something similar as well. It will be interesting but I try not to put too much faith in to time tables and dates in regards to these matters but 2016 keeps popping up.
