Will the world end on May 21st, 2011?


The curious thing about religion, is how it has managed to continuously show us that you need an impending doom with a promise of an afterlife in order to enjoy this present life. Because even we if pushed, are apt to be uncomfortable if you dare breathe the notion that no after life exists. Which means quite simply, when the world does come to dissolve May 21- where will we all end up? Has God set aside a Disneyland in HEAVEN for Christians, whipping sessions for heathens and for every other denomination a fast forward program to instant conversion to Christianity? This of course has the potential of making most faith followers uneasy, but who it will make particularly uneasy are all the atheists who for the first time time in their lives will be made to see their wretched ways and understand finally that logic and intuition sometimes requires degrees of mystiscm if one is to prevail. Hopefully the ferris wheel will be working the day everyone on Earth ends up in Heaven.

But then this leads us to ask another question- Will the world really end or is it just  mankind projecting its own demise upon all of existence?

The Bible seems to be a guarantee of everything but since when did a book start talking? Since when did one book have more authority than the living spirit and spontaneousness of the moment? At least with Ferris wheels we know they stop spinning when there is no wind or electricity. But even then we still have faith.

Strangely enough, faith is exactly what you need to sometimes make it in this world, because so often things are all so beyond us. Faith in Mr Camping’s case is also what you need too if you believe the imminent demise of the world is here too. The wonderful thing about faith is that it rests on your own personal rationale or lack of to be succinct. In short it’s a kind of delicious illusion that we can or can not choose to believe in.

Which brings us back to May 21- 2011- is it an illusion or something that we have created in order to believe in, only to have to re believe in a new thing should it not come to pass? That’s the beauty of illusions, they only work as long as you believe in them, mathematic quotients or not. But we’ll let Mr Camping describe that to us in greater detail at some other time. Assuming we are still all around…



  1. This guy should be thrown from the top of Grand Canyon.. Or should be admitted to asylum.. …

  2. Why does the sun go on shining?
    Why does the sea rush to shore?
    Don’t they know it’s the end of the world,
    ‘Cause you don’t love me any more?

    Why do the birds go on singing?
    Why do the stars glow above?
    Don’t they know it’s the end of the world.
    It ended when I lost your love.

    I wake up in the morning and I wonder,
    Why everything’s the same as it was.
    I can’t understand. No, I can’t understand,
    How life goes on the way it does.

    Why does my heart go on beating?
    Why do these eyes of mine cry?
    Don’t they know it’s the end of the world.
    It ended when you said goodbye.

    Why does my heart go on beating?
    Why do these eyes of mine cry?
    Don’t they know it’s the end of the world.
    It ended when you said goodbye.

  3. I agree with you Jill. The bible states that no one will know the day or time our Jesus will come. If you love Jesues and believed he died for you, you will be taken, so what does it matter about our earthly possessions? We will be in the most beautiful paradise ever imagined. I guaranteed he will come some day but the mystery is when

  4. Mr. Camping is truly one selfish individual. He is benefiting monetarily off of the fear of his followers. He has followers all over the country sending him contributions for billboard ads of the coming of this so-called Judgement Day on May, 21st 2011. It was reported that an unemployed woman from Colorado Springs, CO gave her entire savings to Mr. Camping’s billboard ads. Disgusting! Mr. Camping should be ashamed of himself. I guess if we are so lucky as to NOT have the world end on May 21st 2011, then I guess Mr. Camping will do a good Christian thing by GIVING BACK all of the money that he collected for his bogus Judgement Day ads, right??? I seriously doubt that. Mr. Camping will probably be sipping on a pina colado somewhere on a Carribean island on May 23rd! Meanwhile, his followers will all be dead broke, wishing that it really was the end of the world! Please don’t send a penny over to this man who thrives off of the fear & stress of others. How the hell can this man sleep @ night knowing the anxiety & paranoia that he is putting people through?!? Some great Christian!!

  5. Just a thought but, what if I get lucky and am one of the ones saved on judgment day May 21st. I then go to heaven and when I get there I realize that It’s not what I expected it to be and I really don’t want to stay there for an eternity. Now what? Can I get back to earth (and have a 5 month-long party)? Or, how about maybe re-directed to another planet somewhere in the universe that has a similar climate to earth?

    Also, what will the may 21st believers do if the rapture never comes? What will you tell all those family radio listeners who have quite their jobs, taken their kids out of school, withdrawn all their savings? All so they can “prepare”.

    God did not write the bible, People did!
