I had thought it would be in 2038 (19 Jan 2038 at 3:14:07 AM GMT) but it looks like I was wrong!

"In one manuscript from the early 1700s, Newton used the cryptic Book of Daniel to calculate the date for the apocalypse, reaching the conclusion that the world would end no earlier than 2060.

"It may end later, but I see no reason for its ending sooner," Newton wrote. However, he added, "This I mention not to assert when the time of the end shall be, but to put a stop to the rash conjectures of fanciful men who are frequently predicting the time of the end, and by doing so bring the sacred prophesies into discredit as often as their predictions fail." "

In another document, Newton interpreted biblical prophecies to mean that the Jews would return to the Holy Land before the world ends. The end of days will see "the ruin of the wicked nations, the end of weeping and of all troubles, the return of the Jews captivity and their setting up a flourishing and everlasting Kingdom," he posited.

Well we've got the ruin of wicked nations, and good ones as well, and the Jews have set up a republic rather than a kingdom. Lets hope for the end of weeping and all troubles- a few good H bombs should see to that. there won't be anyone left to weep. But he doesn't apparently tell us how long before the end of the world all this happens.

I just read recently that the Mayan calendar predicts the end of the world as 2012. That means I won't have to get another bad driver's license photo taken.

I've been reading THIS for the past few days. I've heard Barbara Rossing speak a number of times. She commented that she wanted to use the word "Racket" rather than "Exposed," but her publisher chickened out. Felt it was too confrontational, even if true.

On the other hand, on March 23, 1989, the 300 meter (1,000-foot) diameter Apollo asteroid 4581 Asclepius (1989 FC) missed the Earth by 700,000 kilometers (400,000 miles) passing through the exact position where the Earth was only 6 hours before. If the asteroid had impacted, it would have created the largest explosion in recorded history.

As I recall, there is a big sucker that is scheduled to pass the Earth inside the orbit of the moon (which is approximately 240,000 miles from Earth) in 2025. One of the major concerns is that during this near-miss, the asteroid's orbit may be deflected sufficiently by the earth's gravity that when it returns in in 2037, there could be the granddaddy of all thumps!

Folks are already figuring ways of trying to deflect its trajectory.

Don Firth

P. S. As I understand it, we didn't know about the 1989 near miss until it had already gone by. And, of course, there are lots of these things out there that we don't know about . . . yet. . . .

Them mayans are wrong. Heathen predictions don't count. Any good dispensationalist can tell you that it can't be more than a couple of years now before the secret rapchur and the beginning of the tribulashun.

Heard Billy Graham hisself proclaim that it couldn't be more than a couple of years. (That was in Chicago, about 1962.)

Can't understand why any number of people down the ages, who have otherwise turned on their critical faculties, convince themselves that ancient texts are somehow authoritative in way that no other text is, just because someone claims it is; and that the subject matter is something other than it obviously is; and that because it is hopelessly vague, it is therefore very accurate.
