Ed Parnell's Cunning Plan

I been here and there with receding hair…

After the Rapture

with one comment

Radio broadcaster Harold Camping predicted the world would end this past May. Since then, he has recalculated—and is now sure it will end this Friday. His followers are adjusting accordingly.

For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.—1 Thessalonians 16-18

In the end, they believed, on Saturday, May 21, 2011, 13,023 years after His breath first blew across the vastness of the space and time He was simultaneously creating, separating light from darkness, the Earth from the firmament above, producing creatures of every kind, and fashioning in His own image His beloved children, children who would promptly forsake him, thus condemning to death themselves and all generations to come—on that day this May, they believed, they knew, He would return to fulfill His promise and at long last begin the systematic destruction of it all.
