Oh Well…

On to 2012, I suppose…

Via the Daily Telegraph:

Inhabitants of New Zealand, scheduled to be among the first to meet the apocalypse according to a US fundamentalist preacher, this morning confirmed they were still in existence as the appointed time was reached in their time zone. There were also unconfirmed reports that Tonga has, thus far, failed to boil into the Pacific.

Eighty-nine-year-old tele-evangelist Harold Camping had prophesied that the “Rapture” would begin with powerful earthquakes at 6pm in each of the world’s regions, after which the good would be beamed up to heaven.

This morning, Kiwis confirmed there were no signs of the dead rising from the grave, nor of the living ascending into the clouds to meet Jesus Christ.

Twitter users were disappointed by the absence of Armaggedon.

    So, because the MEDIA’S reporting that New Zealand didn’t disappear, that automatically means it’s true? Yeah, okay…

    I’m waiting for Monday afternoon’s business report…

    “The failure of the world to end over the weekend, sent the Dow up almost two percent in active trading.”

    I heard a prophecy-beleiver interviewed on NPR (so sue me) this morning: the Judgement DID take place, and the date of the EOTW is now 21 Oct 2011. (He also said the Salvation window is closed, so if you ain’t saved today you never will be.)
