Christmas Island and other locations near New Zealand, where self-styled scriptural scholar Harold Camping predicted that the apocalypse would strike by Friday night Los Angeles time, so far remain free of "super terrible" earthquakes. The 89-year-old Oakland-based doomsday predictor told his followers that destruction would begin on May 21, wherever it happens to be 6 p.m. New Zealand is 19 hours ahead of Pacific Daily Savings Time. As of 10:30 p.m. PDT -- 7:30 p.m. May 21 on Christmas Island, also known as Kiritimati -- no earthquakes had been reported within the last hour and a half, according to the U.S. Geological Survey, which tracks seismic activity worldwide.

The Times' Christopher Goffard reported that Camping had warned:

The earthquakes will then roll on, time zone by time zone. The saved, perhaps 2% to 3% of the world population, will be whisked to God, while the rest will be obliterated in what he calls "a super horror story."

Camping reads neither Hebrew nor Greek, the two main languages of the Bible, but insists his arithmetic is ironclad. He calculates that God gave humanity 7,000 years to prepare for its destiny, just as Noah had seven days to prepare for the flood, and that May 21 is the terminus of human history if one counts time by the Jewish calendar. There are other signs of the end, he teaches. Gay rights. The rebirth of Israel, and the Jewish state's rejection of Jesus.

I was waiting for this post. I was pretty sure that nothing would happen, but just to play devils avocet, perhaps we should wait until the 22nd. But I don't believe anything will happen. I feel sorry for the people who bought into this... I wonder what they will be feeling, especially the ones who sold everything...Poor people, but maybe they deserved it for being so gullible....

A great post by Oneisone - interesting read about Harold's plan if the rapture didn't happen:

I guess if I jumped the gun I won't have to worry about it right

Agreed, I'm sure we will see more of this sort of thing today. I really do feel sorry for the people who believed so strongly in Harold's campaign.

If we are not raptured naturally, then I have ready some orange juice I will be handing out for myself and my family as well as our pets. A nice cocktail of opiates and benzodiazepines for that wonderful hug of warmth as we drift off into the clouds to meet our maker.


Happy Rapture day everyone!

Let's meet up on cloud 9, we'll designate that the antigovernment cloud!

I thought the exact same thing earlier tonight - guess they are just getting more hits than they are used to as I was able to check their site within the last 10 minutes or so and was able to get it to connect.

On second thought, maybe my computer got raptured too....

I made a thread about this yesterday but it was closed because there were already a lot of other threads: Rapture: The Official Nothing Happened Thread

Then again... I didn't think of this:

Sorry I was late on that - I figured it would be good to put a thread up now that it is 6PM 5/21/11 in at least one location in the world.

Your thread had a lot of info - well done!

How did all this hogwash get blown so out of proportion? How is one delusional mans goofy idea any more important than anothers? I am just amazed at not only all the threads at ATS over this. But also the news articles with the mainstream media. Did Lindsay Lohan get too boring for them? Geez!!!

I don't feel a bit sorry for all of those who believed in his predictions, and the ones who quit their job... It was their choice and they are going to pay the consequences of it. They deserve what they have coming IMO.
