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.

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.

What if on May 21st, 2011, "Christ" does "return"?
I'll drop to his feet and wash them with my hair. It worked for the whore.

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.

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.
