    No, not the song either. How is everybody going to spend the next two and a half days before the "rapture" hits Saturday evening? For me it's kind of fitting Jesus would come back to Earth the day of my best friends bachelor party. :cool:

    I totally forgot. I guess I will spend my time finding someone who will give me a baptismal.

    id already forgotten about this. i saw that someone bought a couple billboard spots as you come into DSM from ames. they bought a regular spot as well as the new electronic billboard. if god said that he would come back and we wouldn't know when, how does some guy do math problems to figure it out? not trying to make this religious, i just think he's a crackpot

    There's no doubt he's a crackpot. I mean, he says there will be a global earthquake starting at 6pm local time on May 21 that will progressively go around the globe starting in New Zealand. If God was going to destroy the world would he give a damn about time zones?:confused:

    I'm going to get up early, leave my pj's on my bed exactly as I'd been wearing them when I laid down, hide in the closet, and watch the hilarity ensue as my family wonders what happened.

    It's worth watching. The concept is great. Execution: Not so much.

    Not to mention the guy already predicted the Rapture to occur once already in 1994. After nothing happened, he said that he must have made an error in calculation. The truly sad thing is that there are people out there who believe this lunatic and who burn through all of their savings thinking that they won't be here come Saturday.

    ya i read an article about it and they talked to a couple people that spent over 10k dollars in savings in the past month or so in preparation for this. i personally think they should have just donated it to me. I could have thought of better ways to spend that kind of money
