It isn't really random coincidences. Natural disasters, human conflicts, and bad things have happened for years. It's just now that the earth is more populated and is more closely connected because of technology. So not only are there more people to experience the suffering, due to people being so closely linked, it becomes easier for someone who is on the opposite side of the world to feel sympathy and sorrow for someone from a distant land.

That is a good point... Especially if you consider the fact that many people believe our emotions can affect the world around us (i.e. the Art Bell mass consciousness experiment)

In the Holy Bible it simply says caught up. There's no description of the modern idea of being raptured.

Yes no one knows the time. Only the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. I listne to Harold Camping but I don't agree with him saying the return will be May 21 and I don't agree on some other things. Family Radio do play nice hymns and the talk radio is interesting to hear. Thank God for shortwave.

If he does turn up on that day, i will tell him he picked one hell of a day to turn up...(see what i did there...)
as this is the day the earth is going to end (didnt he get the memo)
and its not going to leave much time for him to see the sites and meet up with old friends..

a couple of thinking points for believers - not remotely exhaustive by any means

1. know not the hour or day refers to feast of trumpets
2. folks saying 2011 may 21 are using Gregorian calendar
3. a key event from Daniel is the signing of a treaty, from which 3.5 years transpire before the psuedo-christ (remember greek word for anti is "psuedo") is revealed
4. the gospel of the kingdom must first be taugh to all nations (hasnt happened since the "church" hasnt got a clue what that is) and then the end will come
5. when you see all these things know that summer is near, etc

so then we may infer, that since most major Yehoshuah events happened on a feast day (pentecost, passover, etc) why break with tradition

thus we are looking for a few things to transpire before 21 May - dont like the chances

however one must constantly be mindful of walking right, and being a disciple instead of a religious fanatic

cheers and be good

Know not the day or hour refers to the end. The Holy Bible is the inspired word of God and its only interpretation is from God. Plenty know the gospel. Gospel simply means good news. We're told what to do in giving that to the world. The church in the U.S.A is very messed up but God will discipline His bride. True Christians in China & elsewhere that suffer, know what it's all about.

Pure gibberish. What if I told you that the "serpent" in the garden was really Adam's ding-dong? Man is the original destroyer. The story you believe in is a Jewish inversion of the truth designed to make you hate women and blame the problems of the world on them.

The problem with the old testament isn't that it's pure mythology. It's that compared to other mythologies, it's not even particularly interesting or creative.


have you actualy cracked open a bible or are you beening spoon fed your idears.

MAN messed up big time not woman.

eve was tricked in a very clever way, she thought eating the fruit would make her like god

adam on the other hand just went along with it and disobeyed god. he is the one that relay messed up. he was not tempted was not tricked , he just went along with it.

genesis 3

4And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:

(the trick or the bait )

5For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

(here is the big lie the same one he allways spinn's, if anyones into the new age this same lie is all over it, same with trans huminisum etc etc the list goes on )

6And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat

( so she fell for the trick and ate it )

and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

booom.... adam just ate it no tricks no lie , just oh eve did it id better try it to.


obviously men like to put their spin on things and keep women down but realy it was man that realy messed up here.

"Christ" is a title, not a name. Secondly, there will be no rapture and most likely there will be nothing. This is exactly the same thing Blossom Goodchild was, the same thing Stan Romanek is, a farce. A ploy to try to get attention. No "God" is judging anyone for anything, people need to grow up and stop feeding into every bit of garbage they hear on tv or read on the net.

I'll drop to his feet and wash them with my hair. It worked for the whore.


You must be Jewish or were scarred by the xtian religion. I see it all the time ..you are not at fault nor are you alone nor can your fear or hate block you from grace. As far as christ returning...its not the long haired jewish dude that died on the cross that pissed off the ROMAN GOV and made the jews nervous. Christ is a position of the heart...seeing with spirit eyes..being able to distinguish the true from the false. Its like being a super jedi stronger than a legion of sith lords,,,where surrender is more powerful than victory.

Its really something that has to be experienced it cannot be explained

Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. THIS IS SAYING WATCH! WATCH! WATCH!. Anyone who is still saying that Jesus is coming as a thief in the night is not listening to the while bible and therefore He will come upon you as travail upon a woman with child. You are only saying what your church or your theologians are saying. Is frustrating some times explain it over and over. You are of this world and are not a child of light. "But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober." Matthew 24:44 (NKJV)
Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect. Ecclesiastes 8:5 (KJV)
Whoso keepeth the commandment shall feel no evil thing: and a wise man's heart discerneth both time and judgment. Amos 3:7 (KJV) Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.

Not exactly. Firstly, you are talking about many different books not one book changing mid way through. Also, it doesn't change. The old testament talks about the time when the Savior will come and lay down the final sacrifice.

All that changed with the final sacrifice was having no need to continue to sacrifice the best of one's proceeds to God.

Jesus' death opened up all of humanity to the Father, without having to be judged by the Father. Technically, you don't have to believe in Jesus Christ to get to the Father, but the Father will judge you based on your merits if you don't and I don't know about you but I wouldn't want to be judged on MY merits.

It's not hellfire, it's really freezer burn. Hell is an exile from God the source of all light, so it is the absence of energy. I can see how some would interpret it as being annihilated out of existence but that isn't quite possible.

You are a frequency of energy, that frequency can't cease to exist any more than the universe can come from nothing. Wow, did I just open up a new can of worms. No the universe can't come from nothing; however, it couldn't be created from nothing either. It is a construct of the eternal, ripped from the very bosom of God Himself. God is totality, He has existed forever and will exist even before and after time itself ceases.

Time is a human construct. Wow boy did I just open a can of worms. It would take me forever to accurately convey reality in words, and I'm not going to try now...

Just suffice it to say that don't buy the hype, humanities frailties have nothing to do with God's or the Christ's(they have none) They don't contradict each other at all, the bible does not contradict itself in the proper context, although that doesn't necessarily mean anything. There is so little we can know with any certainty that almost everything comes down to faith of some sort.

Faith in our senses, faith in our colleagues and sciences, faith in our religous institutions and leaders. How much has the religous leaders held back from us, if we could get unfettered into the vatican library for six months, what would we learn???

How much has our scientific leaders hidden from us (advertently or inadvertently)???

You know ONE thing and ONE thing only... Your consciousness exists. All else is faith based in one way or another. If you can't fathom that, then you have no hope of ever KNOWING anything.

The reason for the above is due to a possibilty, or rather, the possibility that everything you experience is a construct of your consciousness. an illusion, and there is evidence to back that up. The ubiquitous dream within a dream. If you dream at night and experience an alternate reality. OR you do drugs and experience an alternate reality that means that your consciousness creates our reality, it creates your experience.

If you know that your consciousness is capable of creating SOME of your experiences, then how can you know with certainty that it isn't creating ALL of your experiences???

The answer is you can't. So you accept your experiences, your thoughts, etc... on the faith that there is an existential reality to experience and that your consciousness interprets it accurately.

We know it doesn't. There arepeople who interpret reality completely different from others. There are people that are color blind, so some people are capable of seeing multiple colors where others see only a few.

There are some people who have never heard and will never hear, so they interpret reality differently than those that can. So even if there IS an existential reality (and we can never be sure there is) then our consciousnesses interpret it differently from each other and we can never fully trust our experiences to be accurate.

I went to Christian school throughout elementary and junior high, but I do not identify as Christian. The people who do are -- for the most part -- nothing like Christ, which defeats the entire purpose, where I come from. Now -- give away everything you own, and wander from place to place, feeding the hungry, housing the poor, healing the sick, and so on, and we'll talk.

In the meantime, Jewish mythology has little to do with my life, as I am not Jewish. I don't begrudge them their thing, so long as they don't try to force it on me, or tell me I am not "good enough" because I lack the good housekeeping stamp of approval. As far as Christian gentiles go, it is very difficult to take them seriously, but IMO -- the story of Genesis is pretty clearly a cautionary tale about prohibition. God couldn't even make that idea work, and his people (in the garden) knew what he was and were certain that he existed. This makes all the prohibitions that follow seem rather pointless, doesn't it?

Now -- believers in the May 21st "rapture" event: dust off your shoes and head to the next town. Perhaps they will be a little more desperate for cheap entertainment.

i totaly agree

as i pointed out before

matthew 24

3And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

4And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

5For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

6And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

7For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

8All these are the beginning of sorrows.


these are the signs

be a watchman and keep watch.

wars are breaking out at an astounding rate, .... tick



earthquakes are quite frankly going mad...... tick



food riots and shortages are rife .... tick

According to this video, Harold Camping, the man who is predicting this, has spend around $3 million advertising this thing. Hoaxers usually scam people out of their money, not spend millions of dollars themselves just for a good laugh at the expense of others. It could just be that he's gone senile in his old age and he really believes it, but if that's true, I feel sorry for him.


Camping has scammed millions and millions of dollars from people over the years, this is no different.

He spends 3 million of scammed money, but makes 30 million in return, not bad.


Here is proof he is full of you know what, he gets owned by a radio caller.

For the last time: The number and severity of Earthquakes this year (or any other year in this century) are about average over the period of time since we first started measuring them. Ask any geologist. Ask any geology grad student (like my wife). The idea that there are somehow MORE earthquakes and that their severity has somehow "increased" is anti-science and pro-ignorance.

If I see someone post that earthquakes are increasing, its a safe bet that they do not have the mental faculties or knowledge to be right about anything else, right?

Time is precious, after all.

I have read the Bible several times.. I stopped being spoon fed by men in 1999.. Satan did get Eve pregnant and he did try to populate this world with his seed to get man to follow his ways instead of God's way! It is all in there if you read it.

Those people are just another cult. The question is what will THEY do when he doesn't come on the 21st. The bible says that no one will know when the rapture happens so what makes these people think that they have the date taken down and ready to go? If you ask me this reminds me of all those cults that committed mass suicide. I wasn't born until the early 90's but i've studied these cults and they are all connected in the way that they "predicted" a doomsday that will never come.
