Don’t forget world ends at 6PM today

Just forget about the guy carrying the sign that reads “The End Is Near.” According to a loon named Harold Camping “The End Is Here” for our world.

today is the end of days madmikesamerica

On more than 1,200 billboards, in full-page newspapers ads and on all the major news networks, Camping has generated national coverage with his warning to the world that the Day of Judgment begins at 6 p.m. today (I’m not sure if that’s Eastern Standard Time or Central Standard Time).

The 89-year-old founder of Family Radio has made such “predictions” before (most recently in 1994). Not surprisingly, he says he simply miscalculated then, but he is absolutely certain that he has the right calculation now.

When I was in high school, I got a “C” in algebra but, hopefully, I wouldn’t do the math wrong on something as significant as when the world will end.

A doomsday forecaster is nothing new. We’ve always had them and always will (the Mayan calendar predicts the world will end December 21, 2012). So will the end of days happen today?

Here is “my prediction” … At 6:01 p.m., millions of people will not mysteriously be missing (the “rapture”), nor will a mother of all earthquakes show up on any Richter scale as Camping predicts. We’ll see this evening which “prediction” was true.

There have always been fanatics and Camping is no exception.  If I were still a drinking man I would make certain I had a bottle of Johnny Walker to see me through Doomsday, and lots of treats for my dogs.  They get nervous around Doomsday so they need a little something to keep them occupied.

What are you doing to prepare for the end of the world?

    Ok so I am doing a check on the people that live on the east coast to make sure none of you Libertinies have been taken away. Who is still here, so we can tell you that you are heathens and not worthy of rapture? I have a couple hours to go yet to see if I am worthy of being raptured.

      He’ll be around soon enough, to say his calculations were wrong again. They really need to get someone who knows the mathematics to do any and all future calculations. Not someone like me who is a total bonehead at math.
