You know that it starts in Japan first, right? Well, maybe not first, but before all of you people. It's not all at once, but goes time-zone by time-zone, IIRC.

SO neener, neener neener! :P
Supposedly 6pm.

What time is it there? I know I could look it up, but I'm lazy.
It was just after midnight when I posted that. 10:35 am now. So that makes 7 hours, 25 minutes to go.

Since I'm the "flaming" christian here, I will post on Sunday if I remember to. I'm planning to see the new "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie.

I've already "told" the Lord that I'm ready to go so we'll see how many people are still here on Sunday. Man, those people who sold all their stuff are gonna have some thinking to do...

If you want to see what time it is:

http://www.worldtimezone.com/

Less than an hour before it starts out in the Pacific, I think (the time zones are little confusing out in the middle of the Pacific).

There's supposed to be a huge earthquake though, so it should be detectable, right?

ETA: Tonga is where it will start. They're the only country in the first time zone. New Zealand is an hour later.

It's 6:04 pm here in Eastern Australia. If the Rapture is here, it's very sneaky about it.

For a while, I was wondering why their site was called "ediblefellowship.com".

FWIW, I tuned into Family Radio a little bit early this morning and heard some easy listening arrangements of traditional Protestant hymns, plus the first few minutes of a pre-recorded moral improvement psychodrama for children. I couldn't stomach the latter, so I switched off.

Apparently their usual Saturday morning line up.

More automatic pilot?

Here's a funny one:
Make no mistake: Harold Camping is a prophet—a false prophet. Every scripture he cites—without exception—is twisted, mangled and butchered. The Bible warns of such “evil men and seducers” (II Tim. 3:13) in our time, but like all of its other warnings, most do not heed.


"Why do we know he is wrong? Why buy my book and find out..."
“No book you have read, or ever will, on prophecy is like this one. Different from all others on the subject, it is destined to be read by vast numbers—and probably soon.”

If you are serious about learning the truth of the end time, read the most comprehensive book ever written on the subject.

Broadcaster silent as "Judgment Day" hours tick by...
With no sign of Judgment Day arriving as he had forecast, the 89-year-old California evangelical broadcaster and former civil engineer behind the pronouncement seemed to have gone silent on Saturday.
A fool and his money...
In New York, at least one of Camping's followers continued to hold out hope Judgment Day would come.

Retired Metropolitan Transportation Authority worker Robert Fitzpatrick, 60, said he spent more than $140,000 of his savings on subway posters and bus shelter advertisements warning of the May 21 Judgment Day.

"God's people are commanded to sound the warning, to sound the trumpet so to speak so people know," Fitzpatrick said of his advertising blitz.

He said Camping led him to believe Judgment Day would be May 21, but added that he disagreed with the broadcaster's prediction it would begin in Asia.

In Fitzpatrick's view, from his reading of the Bible, Judgment Day would begin around 6 p.m. Eastern Time. He said on Saturday he still had no doubt Judgment Day would come this day.

"I wouldn't even entertain that question because there's too much proof from the Bible," he said.

Updates:

I just tuned into the local Family Radio affiliate. Talk show format, some guy talking about teaching children to have a balanced view of sports. Possibly pre-recorded. No indication of anything out of the usual.

Rapture Ready has Camping pegged as the foul heretic he is.

Hi, I'm still here at 5:10p.m. Pacific Time - no earthquake or anything. Earlier I purchased my advance ticket for "Pirates of the Caribbean." :)
