As some of you may have heard, May 21 2011 is supposed to be "judgement day" according to some religions. Now I don't believe such sillyness, but this does create an interesting question.

The world is going to end in, let's say 5 hours or so. What do you do?

Actually, according to the May 21st prophecy, the world doesn't end until October. Tomorrow (today for most of you) is when the chosen ones go up to heaven, leaving us the hell alone to enjoy our last five months.

But I refuse to speculate until I hear confirmation from DoubleThink. I believe the Rapture starts in Australia in about 45 minutes.

It starts on midnight in Jerusalem time, on May 21st.
So technically the first seconds of May 22nd.

And if the world would end in 5 hours, I would drive to all my friend's houses (female and male) and tearfully tell them I've been in love with them all this time we've known each other, but never had the courage to speak up, and see what happens.

I would dress in some nice business clothes, go outside, and go poof.



Err... maybe not.

...But I thought the really, really crazy Christians are the ones who came up with all this?

Marx, this prediction is Christian.
You know, Judgement Day? The second coming of Christ?
This is 100% Christian.

Ugh, no, not the Mayans, they just let their calender end there, because they were going to make another new one that day... You know, what we sorta do every year or so?
It's just a bunch of idiots, like usual, going 'OMGWTFBBQ ITS GONNA END, THESE ANCIENT UNDEVELOPED PEOPLE KNEW IT OVER US!! IT HAS TO BE, THEIR CALENDER ENDS HERE' because they want attention...
We've been through at least half a dozen end of the world dates already, and 100% of the time, the basis of them are bullshit. We had one where a bot designed for reading stocks was supposedly able to predict the end of the world... The rest are almost always patterns that supposedly can predict all sorts of things, so that's complete proof that they can predict the end of the world, and luckily for them the crap they predict already happened.

Sorry if I'm sounding jerkish, but it pisses me off at how stupid you'd have to be to keep making this stuff up and believe it, after we've already been through several fake dates...
If you want to worry about the end of the world, there are lots of real ways that the universe or our own world could wipe us out in seconds whenever it gets bored. Moving ninja Black Holes, real shooting stars that are several times larger than our sun and moving faster than our orbit, even a space version of a hadouken going off every day.
We'd never see these coming fast enough until they happened, of course.
End of the world could totally happen, and we have real reasons instead of these bullshit theories that don't even explain what will happen half the time...

Re: Raaage

More people should read Void's post.

Also, what's with the number 21?

I tried heroin, sex, skydiving and diving with sharks.

I was expecting the world to end and now I'm quite disappointed because I did all that stuff for nothing :(

You did heroin with sharks, sex with sharks, skydiving with sharks, AND diving with sharks?

That's pretty self-fulfilling in itself I'd say.

Sounds like a normal day to me. Or maybe I'm just perpetually high...

Anyhow, for the Day of Judgment, the Rapture is pretty unjudgmental. So far I haven't seen ANY smiting, except for my neighbor, but he had it coming to him anyway. That was a satisfying crack of lightning, let me tell ya.
