Yeah, no it's not.
Just by googling something like a billboard that tells you the world is ending this coming Saturday, May 21st, you get a lot of results. There's a page listing the failed predictions between the years of 30AD and Now.
And, uh, we're still here.
This has got to be short and sweet. And I'm going to make a strong declaration. If these people who run whatever religions and organizations they run are apparently in touch with the Lord enough, with the Bible enough, to make claims that Judgement day is beginning this Saturday, 21st, then I will assert that I'm just as in touch with the Lord, and just as educated in my ability to read the Bible to claim that the world isn't, in fact, going to start to end this weekend.
There you go.
I'm a Christian. Let me just say, if it is going to go down like people think it's going to go down, we're not gonna' know about it and there won't be billboards and we'll probably be genuinely surprised.
But these are kooks. This is a rouse to build a listenership to their radio programs, to get money, and to bask in the glory that is 15 minutes of fame.
So, here I am standing on my digital soapbox. If I had the money to put up billboards, they would read, "Saturday May 21st!!!! Just another Saturday! Going to be a little balmy, wrap up, read a book, make some TEEEEEEAAAAAAA!"
It's truly insanity, and it sure doesn't do anyone who claims to also be a Christian, like myself, any favors when crazy people make me look crazy too. I certainly don't appreciate it. Whatever religion they are, I'm not that religion and I strongly urge you never to be as well. They're liars and cheats and don't care about you. If you don't buy into their propoganda, "OH YOU'LL BE SORRY! YOU'LL SEE!!"
No you won't. Saturday will come and go and we'll eat our cereal and watch our cartoons and then it'll be Sunday and people will laugh.
If crazy people get to boast about apparently everyone else in the world being wrong, and they being right, then you know what, I get to do it too. It's rare that I would be so audacious in making such a claim, but here it is:
The world is not ending this Saturday. These people are wrong and I am right.
I said it.
I'm right. They're wrong.
Deal with it.
