End of the World Predicted for Today

The Gentle Reader may remember Harold Camping who predicted the end of the world for 21 May, 2011, a prediction he revised to October, 2011, on 22 May of that year. The Guardian reports his successor Chris McCann has the event rescheduled for today.

“It’ll be gone forever. Annihilated.”

McCann said that, according to his interpretation of the Bible, the world will be obliterated “with fire”.

On the off chance that Mr. McCann is wrong, I remind the Gentle Reader of these words from Deuteronomy:

If you say in your heart, “How shall we know the word which the LORD has not spoken?” when a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the thing doesn’t follow, nor happen, that is the thing which the LORD has not spoken: the prophet has spoken it presumptuously, you shall not be afraid of him.

I expect to still be blogging tomorrow. Stay tuned.

If something gets even a little out of whack all hell breaks loose.

We all recognize natural law (with the possible exception of the Darwin Award winners).
