I was just leaving the shop up here in Alaska to go for a test drive in a car and I saw one of those trucks that have billboards on the side of them and you can advertise anyhing on it. Well 2 out of the 3 sides that I saw were advertising May 21, 2011 and something about God passing judgement on us. I couldn't believe that one of these signs made it all the way up to Alaska and I thought to myself who the heck is paying for this? So I Googled May 21, 2011 moving billboard and thes things are all over the world. This operation has to be hugely funded, this is like Y2K, except most people are passing it as been there done that. I just can't believe that someone is pouring such a large amount of money into this and from what I have read most of these people supporting this are Christians, didnt they read the bible? Revelation 3:3 Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; obey it, and repent. But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what time I will come to you.

May 21 2011 is judgement day and the rapture.
October 21 2011 is the end of the world for those left behind.
Thats my b-day,so I hope I get left behind.

Personally, I think it's total BS. Loads of people throughout the ages have tried to predict the end times, and they've obviously never been right. The group that is lauding the 21st as the end will be proven wrong soon enough.

Yep. Some atheists in Washington even set up something called the Countdown to Backpedaling. Both religious believers and non-believers are curious to see what excuses these people can come up with when May 21st comes and goes without Jesus even dipping a toe into our atmosphere to see if the air is warm. The sad thing is some people have made serious financial sacrifices to support this end of the world nonsense.

According to Camping, the number five equals "atonement", the number ten equals "completeness", and the number seventeen equals "heaven".
Christ 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.
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.
The time between April 1 and May 21 is 51 days.
51 added to 722,449 is 722,500.
(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 Christ made payment for our sins until we're completely saved."
