The Abomination of Desolation
When Yeshua (Jesus) tells us the signs of his second coming, he quotes Daniel by telling us, “When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place … for then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.” (See Matthew 24:15-21 for complete quote.) Daniel 12:11 tells us that this abomination that maketh desolate will start a final count of 1290 days until the end of days, so recognizing it is very important to understanding Bible prophecy of the very end of time. But what does this phrase mean, and how will we recognize it when it happens? The following word study gives us some excellent clues.
The Hebrew word used for “abomination” in Daniel is Strong’s # 8251, shiqquts, defined as: disgusting, filthy, idolatrous. This word appears approximately 25 times throughout the Old Testament. The overwhelming majority of the time that the word abomination is used, it is linked with idols, other gods, or some type of worship that displeases God. A sampling of uses of this word are found in Deuteronomy 29:17 (context: idols); 1 Kings 11:5 and 7 (Solomon turned to other gods); 2 Kings 23:13, 24 (King Josiah put away mediums, images, idols, abominations). It appears several times in the book of Jeremiah, 7:30 (set abominations in my house…to pollute it), 13:27 (lewdness, whoredom, abominations), 32:34 (abominations in the temple). It is also used frequently in Ezekiel: 5:11 (defiled my sanctuary), 7:20 (images of their abominations); 20:7-8 (abominations of his eyes, idols); 37:23 (idols, detestable things).
This same trend continues. Here are more examples of abominations being linked with breaking God’s law: Deuteronomy 23:17-18: Bringing a whore into house of YHVH (breaking a statute that falls under the adultery command), Deuteronomy 24:4: Former husband not to remarry former wife who was married to another husband in the interim (adultery), Deuteronomy 25:14-16: False weights and measures (stealing); Deuteronomy 27:15: Graven image (idol). Again, all of these are examples of broken commandments being called an abomination.
Often the things called abominations involve not just the breaking of one of God’s Ten Commandments, but breaking them as a form of false worship. Examples: Deuteronomy 7:25-26: graven images of false gods are an abomination. This is breaking the command against graven images, done as a form of worship to a false god. Deuteronomy 12:31: every abomination which God hates, have they done unto their gods; for even their sons and their daughters they have burnt in the fire to their gods.” This is breaking the command against murder and offering blood sacrifices, done as a form of worship to a false god. Deuteronomy 17:1-5: The gist is about sacrificing something with blemishes, transgressing God’s covenant, serving other gods, and worship of the sun or moon. This is breaking the command to have no other gods before Him, done as a form of worship to a false god. Deuteronomy 18:9-12: Do not the abominations of the surrounding nations: make son pass through fire, use divination, observe times, witchcraft, consult familiar spirits or the dead. This is breaking the command to have no other gods before Him, by consulting false gods.
Time and time again, various forms of false worship, or breaking of God’s commands in the form of worship to false gods, is called an abomination.
Passover in 2012 will start on Saturday, the 7th of April and will continue for 7 days until Friday, the 13th of April.
Note that in the Jewish calander, a holiday begins on the sunset of the previous day, so observing Jews will celebrate Passover on the sunset of Friday, the 6th of April.

That is to bad. It is a theory but a very solid theory. Sorry you are so against religion and the Bible. I can't show you proof. I couldn't even show you or anyone for that matter proof that Abe Lincoln was shot in a theatre. I wasn't there, but I believe what was told.
