He's back. And the end of the world in ON again. We've just got a few days left. Get busy!!!

The radio preacher who predicted Judgment Day on May 21 has not backed down from his claims that the end of the world is near, despite the lack of a Rapture or world-devastating earthquakes leading up to the doomsday.

In an announcement on his Family Radio Network website, Harold Camping stands by his earlier predictions that the world will end on Friday, Oct. 21. Originally, Camping had predicted hourly earthquakes and God's judgment on May 21, to be followed by months of torment on Earth for those individuals left behind. Using numerical codes extracted from the Bible, Camping set the date for the end of everything for Oct. 21.

When May 21 came and went without fanfare, Camping revised his story. The "earthquakes" he had predicted did occur, he writes on his website in a post titled "What Happened on May 21?" — only instead of shaking the Earth, God shook mankind "with fear." Likewise, although no one was raptured, God is no longer saving souls, Camping writes.

If you blunder into this intricate schedule by changing something as substantial as your granddaughter's birthday party, it could put off the whole End Times or even turn it into a mere celestial foodfight.

The only thing I can figger is...either they were all wrong...or maybe the world ended in one split second that was so quick no one noticed, and then it started up again in a perfect imitation of its previous self...sorta like startin' up a computer game again after a power outage.

And no one noticed the difference, cos ya can only notice somethin' when yer "there", not when you ain't. ;-D

'...ya can only notice somethin' when yer "there", not when you ain't...

Very profound Chongo, Very Profound.'

It's profound, but incomplete. Heisenberg noted that the act of being there to make the observation interferes with what one observes. So obviously the only way to see things clearly is 'not be there'. However, when we couple that to the philosophical insight that 'no matter where you go, there you are', well, you can see where that road leads. That's right, it leads to Rome. Obviously, the only way to notice Rome is when y'ain't there.

That friggin' monkey could well be president someday.

You got a good point there, 999, about how the observer bein' there affects the observation cos the observer puts his own way of thinkin' into the observation...kinda like puttin' a measure of salt and pepper into the soup. He gives the observation a unique flavor that's all his own. So we all see somethin' a bit different, even though we are supposedly all lookin' at the same thing. Still, you gotta be there to be the observer, don'tcha?

If the world ended, would we know it? If we are part of the world, we wouldn't know it cos we would have ended too. If we are existin' at some level independent from the world (which I guess could be a possibility) then we might notice it from that other place of observin', and say, "Well that world we was playin' around in has ended."

If so, I figger we'd either be in some new kinda "world" or else we'd just be sorta like the bodiless observer that is everywhere at the same time. That would mean ya wouldn't need no money or clothes no longer, which would sorta take the pressure off, wouldn't it?

"be polite when closing the door on Jehovah's Witnesses"

You closed the door? Yer fucked if yer not one of the 144,000 JWs going to heaven. Did you get a coupon before you shut the door? If you did, check the expiry date. There's not much time left.

That's not quite it, gnu. I know some Jehovah's Witnesses, and none of them think they are among the 144,000 who to to heaven. They assume they probably are not. What they do think is that many millions of good people (including, hopefully themselves) will remain on the Earth but will live in a new paradise-like planet that has been transformed into a fertile, peaceful environment where both Nature and the human race flourish in natural balance, where there's no more war, one unified society that welcomes all races equally, etc...

So this thing they believe about the 144,000 does not refer to the presumed destiny of most JWs, but just to a small minority of them.

I will say this: Although I do not share the belief system of the JWs, all of them that I have met have been good people, good neighbours, people I felt that I could trust to be good neighbours...and that counts for a lot. This doesn't mean I buy their beliefs, but it does mean I respect them.

I fought fires with a fellow who was a JW. I taught one of his sons and one of his daughters. Couldn't ask for better people. Those who have knocked on my door have been invited in if it's convenient, and though not necessarily pleased when I passed on the religion stuff, never gave up trying to help me see the light. Once a month, like clockwork, there they were. Nice people.

My fellow firefighter couldn't respond to MVCs because the possibility of having to help with transfusions (volume expanders) was opposed to his beliefs. He was one helluva pump operator though, and since that's who folks on the sharp end depend on, ya just don't pass 'em up. As LH said, good people and great neighbours.

I do however agree with Gnu. This knock on the door at 2:15 pm stuff is a bit much, and sometimes that's early in the morning to me. With them I have never had to be impolite in order to say goodbye.
