Awkward Billboard is Awkward

Published May 22nd, 2011 by Bobby Henderson

Billboard placed in Greensboro, North Carolina after Rapture fails to show.

Does anyone know the story on this billboard? It almost looks like a moderate Christian group mocking the Rapture sect for their extreme views.

What I am wondering is this: when the world did not end, did it cause anyone to become more rational? Or will the Doomsdayers become stronger believers (as sometimes happens in cults) – and more importantly, do moderate Christians feel their interpretation of the bible has been validated?

    Um, Harold Camping had a stroke. Now he can’t talk. If only he had heeded the holy call to partake of booty (both kinds), grog and rigatoni to a pious degree, he might have known the joy and blessing of health that come with accepting the noodly touch. Alas, his heart remained far harder than al dente.

    “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” Matthew 24:36. I just wanted to throw this out there for the christians that think they know everything…like when the end of days will happen!

    P.S. Love the website!

    I have read a few good stuff here. Definitely worth bookmarking for revisiting. I surprise how so much effort you set to create any such fantastic informative website.

    are we not about due for that mayan calendar prediction? apocolypse is coming, date around a couple weeks away, not even? wondering how we should tell the dog. She understands more than many people…but this topic stumps me.

      Is it best to end it all on an empty stomach, or …i suppose many would propose ingesting various things.

      how does the fsm play in2 the mayan calendar end of times predictions, will he b descending to retrieve his loyal followers…does he have some alternate universe 4 post collection following retrieval efforts or everyone congregates on pile of noodles…

      The good news is that you have absolutely nothing to worry about. The Mayan calendar does not predict the end times. As opposed to our own linear view of time where consecutive events exist in the order in which they happen, the Mayans believed that all points in time existed simultaneously, with all events being in the past, present and future all at the same time. The “End Times” interpretation of the Mayan calendar is based on the false assumption that they followed a linear timeline as well, and with a little math, that would mean their calendar “ends” on December 21st, 2012.

      Fortunately, we have a lot of things in common with the Mayans. We have our own calendar that “predicts the end times”…. every single year on December 31st. In BOTH interpretations of the Mayan calendar, when it “ends”, it simply starts over just like our calendar. They just had a much larger perspective on time.

        Thanks for that post, Mal. I’m sick and tired of hearing about the “Mayan Apocolypse”. They never said it was the end of the world, just the start of another era. Just what makes them such great prognosticators, anyway? If they had true vision they would have wiped out the first few boatloads of Spaniards. Last week there was a TV program where Samuel Jackson was narrating about the Mayans “disappearing”. Hey, Sam – go down to the Yucatan and look for REALLY short people. Those are the Mayans. There’s lots of them, as I can personally attest to.

        I figured it had 2 b something like this, or maybe some1 dropped tableture & broke continuation prints…as i think they were on stone..but u may b aware there is for example @ barnes & noble an entire section of books covering this, possibly may even have seen either an idiots guide or end of times 4 dummies, but dont quote me on that…just seemed like alot of lit out there. U should release above statement as a publication. A very short one & have it marketed in that section, as there is alot of interest apparently…but there is precious little time remaining…

        If nothing else the books will serve as good kindlng if it fails to pass.

        In an unrelated note, i m having 2 much pain 2 continue typing…thought id share the partial good news. NOT the pain, the end of typing.

          Disaster sells! They made the movie 2012 which scared the beejesus out of my grandson. Saying it’s a change to the “Age of Aquarius” or something of that ilk just can’t measure up to the visual of tidal wave washing over the Himalayas.

    I have always appreci8d appocolyptic materials, 4 their survival themes- ever c twilight zone where there is 1 last man on earth? the original black and white t zone. He does something like break his glasses & cannot read any books which was his only remaining form of companionship…

    still typing here. just far less.
