So in the USA a Christian group (not a church apparently) has declared that "the end of times" cometh on May 21!
So get ready for all the good believers to be delivered unto the Lord and all the rest, the unbelievers and those that believe the wrong thing, to begin their descent into Hell and Damnation. You (look at me, I am assuming you are all among the sinners... tsk, tsk... ) may be alive for another 153 days after May 21 but on October 21 (153 days after May 21) the world and the entire universe will be destroyed! So there is no hope.
Quote: As you may have learned from one of the 2,000 billboards worldwide, May 21, 2011, is Judgment Day, upon which the righteous – which totals 3 percent of humanity – will be whisked away to the sweet hereafter, leaving the rest of us to weather five months of extreme natural disasters until Oct. 21, whereupon God destroys the entire universe and everyone left in it.
At least that's what Harold Camping says. The head of Family Radio broadcasting network, which boasts 150 outlets in the United States, has what his website calls "infallible, absolute proof" that there's no point in making plans for Memorial Day weekend. It goes like this:

Quoting Airstud (Reply 2): This same exact dude predicted the same exact thing (with the same exact certainty) would occur in September of 1994.
Yes, but he explained that! He said that he wasn't absolutley certain of that then. People should have noticed that he put a question mark at the end of the book title (where he made the prediction). He has stated that he is absolutely certain this time (and will be absolutley, positively, for-sure, super duper certain next time... for sure).
YOU are just a non-believer making excuses to not follow the Truth!
Quoting kaitak (Reply 4): Did they give a specific time; it's just that there's a Buffy marathon on one of the satellite channels and I'd be sorry to miss it.
Yes! 6pm pacific time! Giant earthquakes will shake the whole earth and mark its beginning!

Quoting 4holer (Reply 7): Saw on the news a report that there are people on craigslist trying to get these idiots to sign over their houses and cars to them since they won't be needing them anymore. Brilliant.
Hopefully this guy has spent all his life savings, since he won't need it once the 22nd comes around. I bet a standard 401(k) for a guy his age (if he actually has saved at all) would let him take some nice vacations!
The above post is my opinion. Don't like it? Don't read it.

As a die-hard Hedonistic sinner, I'm not losing a second of sleep over this.
Wake me up when they start hijacking aircraft and strap bombs to themselves blowing up subway stations, pizza parlors, dance clubs, etc.
Till then, this is a non-issue.

Actually I hear an interview with one of "the believers" and the guy did speak about no longer worrying about his 401k or retirement or other daily problems. His main concern now was his family and friends that did not believe, and he was trying to share with them, convince them, of the need to change/repent NOW.
