Early rapture day status update.

It’s a bit after 3:00 am on the East Coast and so far no earthquake and no one has been caught up to heaven that I can tell. Of course, I am in the basement of my house on the couch so some of my neighbors could totally be gone.

I have been jeering and mocking away from the great and spacious building at work and in a number of online settings. I have been trying to see how many people will join me in agreeing that believing that the world is ending on May 21, 2011 is absurd. And actually most people are right there with me. Of course, many of them actually agree that the world is spiraling toward its demise, they just don’t think the date is knowable. Hmm. The line between strange and sacred is 100% in the eye of the beholder.

UPDATE: It is just after 11:00 am on the East Coast and unfortunately none of the crazies have disappeared yet. But apparently that is because the rapture is not scheduled to begin until 7:00 pm EDT. So that means there is still time to make provision for your pets. Also, the battle on Harold Camping’s Wiki page is under way. Camping is the prophet who has been predicting the end of the world would be today since 2008, having previously been wrong about it ending in September 1994.

The first line on his page has been alternating frequently including:

Harold Egbert Camping (born July 19, 1921) is a fringe Christian radio broadcaster[1] and president of Family Radio, a California-based religious broadcasting network that spans more than 150 outlets in the United States as well as a website.

Harold Egbert Camping (born July 19, 1921) is a liar who says the world’s going to end to make more money but is is a peice of crap.
