World Ends on Saturday? Nooooo…

Rev. Harold Camping of Christian group Family Radio is alerting the world that the world will end this Saturday, May 21st, with banners to boot. The billboards are, quite frankly, a cause of additional anxiety to the rest of us world citizens. Β I distinctly remember the Y2K bug in 2000 and everybody partied like crazy in 1999.

Some of the previous end of the world prophecies that bombed include October 22, 1944 (Miller), 1914 (Jehovah’s Witnesses), December 17, 1919 (Albert Porta, meteorologist), and August 18, 1999 (American psychic). The predictions come from various sources. This particular present prediction I am posting about is apparently based from Family Radio’s Biblical interpretations and a bit of Math!

Yet to be proven is this Saturday’s prediction and the famous December 12, 2012, as derived from the symbolic end of the Mayan calendar. Even my 150+ IQ-laden dad somehow believes the 12-12-12 theory. My friend in UP said that she is waiting for this date to finish her thesis because it might all go to waste if she tried to finish it now and experience the end of the world after (LOL!).

Interestingly, the Family Radio community has not asked for monetary compensation in exchange for this prediction, which is a tell that they really are hell-bent and serious in digging this end of the world thing.

True or not, I have always believed in seizing the day and living each day as if it were my last! (But I sure hope it’s not true because I still have lots of dreams, stuff to write and things to change within myself.)

  1. Kahit bukas pwd naman end of the world eh. Si God nga wlang sinabing exact date, siya pa ngyn inisked n nya. Kung totoo man..ok marenew na mundo

  2. yah! your right helen.!! In God’s time naman kpag lahat tayo eh, kukunin na nya..talgang nakatakda na. Which means tapos na ang misyon natin sa buhay. But kung hindi pa hindi pa nya tayo isasam a sa paraiso nya db? So habang we still alive and kickin’ lets enjoy every single of the day πŸ™‚ ayt!

  3. I think wala naman mawawala kung maniwala ka man o hindi.. kase Judgement Day pa lang po yan.. meaning paghuhukom at hindi pa END of The World… Kikilatisin pa ang mga nagawa mo sa buong buhay mo.. Ako personally hindi ako naniniwala pero natanong na ba natin sa sarili natin na Handa na tayo? yun lang!

  4. Siguro ngayon pa lang simulan na magdasal ng mga taong sobrang busy sa kani-kanilang pinag-kakaabalahan… Humingi na ng kapatawaran ang mga nagkamali.. kase hindi nga natin alam kung kelan si GOD babalik…

    Maghanda na tayo.. bago pa mahuli ang lahat….

  5. Ate helen? Sobrang Salamat po! Maraming maraming salamat po! Salamat ate! sana magawa kong makabawi sa mga tulong mo po sa akin ate salamat talaga! GOD BLESS you always po!

  7. Well for I know, the Lord won’t do such thing. For I know He loves us.
    Anyway, it’s quite interesting. I wanna see how this world would end. But seriously, I don’t believe in that. They are just using it for advertising. HOHO. xD

  8. Alas sa-iz nah wala pa namang lindol o tsunami; hehe; Indi aku naniwala na magugunaw ang mundo ngayun, kasi ang sardinas kong delata sabi november 2012 pa mag expire; hehehe.:-)

  9. All this discussion on Endtimes, the end of days… floods, erupting volcanos, earthquakes and what have you… and now we’ve got an E-coli outbreak! If I didn’t know better I’d swear we were in 2012 already :-)!
