This is just to remind everyone that as I write this we have less than 18 hours to Rapture (also 24 hours til the end of the NC Villanelle Contest—get your entries in before the “dead” line).
Calculating rapture day
Harold Camping, who has gone on record as saying the world was created in 11,013B.C., believes the Bible teaches that the flood of Noah’s day was in 4990 B.C.
Camping, leader of the Oakland-based ministry Family Radio Worldwide, then points to the Apostle Peter in the 1st century writing of Noah’s flood in an epistle where he also warns that God will one day destroy the world by fire.
Camping often quotes from 2 Peter 3:8, which reads: “But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.”
According to Camping, who takes literally Genesis 7:4, where God warns Noah, “For yet (in) seven days” he would cause it to rain on the Earth for 40 days and 40 nights, the seven days can be interpreted as 7,000 years.
So, says Camping, when God told Noah there were seven days to escape the flood, he also was warning that there would be 7,000 years to escape the final judgment.
Camping’s math says that when one subtracts a year in moving from “an Old Testament B.C. calendar date to a New Testament A.D,” the 7,000 years take the world from Noah’s flood to 2011.
He also teaches that May 21 corresponds to the exact day Noah’s flood started.

So the Earth is 13,024 years old. That’s perfectly logical considering anatomically modern humans have been around for approximately 100,000 years! Did we come here by space ship and scatter the archeological remains of our ancestors underground for fun?
I think when I’m stuck going to work on Monday, this will be all the proof we need that the bible is one big contradiction.
I have Rapture fatigue. Let’s all write something sinful.
Not so difficult for some of us, I imagine. 🙂
All of our narratives have a beginning, a middle and a an end, which is why we have such difficulty imagining that the world might not have this same structure.
Hey DG – are you still here?
Very funny, Laura. It’s 6pm today. I’m busy packing. 🙂
Perhaps the rapture is occuring but we are all too much of waste to be “taken.” We’d not really notice much difference would we? hmmmmm?
I expected more complex math – why aren’t there more variables? The Rapture has to have at least five or six subject to clauses. Why would anyone think that God would think in a linear fashion? Who wants a God that thinks in straight lines?
I bet he forgot about the sine and the cosine — and only relied on the tangeant. (I love geek humor)
I think it’s a vulgar waste of human consciousness when [so scared to die] evangelical nut jobs and their religiously permeated psychoses concoct this wild, other-worldly, apocalyptic crap. It’s too bad delusional clowns like Harold Camping can’t apply their creative energies to more productive things–like origami, blogging, sand castles, poetry…
My, didn’t we get up on the wrong side of the bed this morning. 🙂
“evangelical nut jobs and their religiously permeated psychoses” This sounds like me to a t.
I don’t think Harold Camping would be good at origami – too many angles – too much transformation. But, I bet he can sing a mean Kum-bi-ya.
DG–if you start an apocalypse cult, count me in!
I’ll be happy to stir the Kool-aid
and watch everyone drink it.
Apparently, things were supposed to get rolling in New Zealand. I might be wrong about Pacific Time. We might already be facing the abject failure of the prediction. I hate to be disappointed so early. Kind of like living on the west coast and cheating and googling the results of American Idol at (is this a coincidence? maybe it’s a sign!) 6. P.M.
“Abject failure of prediction” — story of my life. 5 minutes to RAPTURE at my house. Bye.
are you there? are you there? I’m watching CNN.
Yeah, we’re all here with the dogs in my bedroom drinking g&t. It’s a bust. See new post.
Wow, it’s 2021! HC was only 10 years off. But he got the gospel spread around the world. We can know the timing now with the torahcalendar.com. Also, the book of truth was just starting to open back then but now we’re much further along, seeing verse by verse in Daniel 11 all happening as we await the rapture of the church. Take a look at daniel11truth as there’s not much time left to repent and be saved.
