Rapture is set for May 21, 2011, are you ready?

Wow. This is a real bummer. I guess I should cancel our 28th anniversary plans for that day?

I would like to add something else, for those of you reading this that are believers (and one of the commenters talks about this, too):

Matthew 24:30-44 (NIV)

"At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and all the
nations of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man coming on the
clouds of the sky, with power and great glory. And he will send his angels
with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds,
from one end of the heavens to the other.

"Now learn this lesson from
the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know
that summer is near. Even so, when you see all these things, you know that
it is near, right at the door. I tell you the truth, this generation will
certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. Heaven and
earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

The Day and
Hour Unknown
"No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in
heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. As it was in the days of Noah,
so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the
flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to
the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen
until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the
coming of the Son of Man. Two men will be in the field; one will be taken
and the other left. Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will
be taken and the other left.
"Therefore keep watch, because you do not know
on what day your Lord will come. But understand this: If the owner of the
house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept
watch and would not have let his house be broken into. So you also must be
ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.
So, reading this, I guess I don't need to cancel our plans, since the world won't really end on that day, because no one knows when it will be, so it won't happen on that day. Wait; did that make sense?

Rapture is set for May 21, 2011, are you ready?: " – Friday, January 1, 2010:

Camping, 88, has scrutinized the Bible for almost 70 years and says he has developed a mathematical system to interpret prophecies hidden within the Good Book. One night a few years ago, Camping, a civil engineer by trade, crunched the numbers and was stunned at what he’d found: The world will end May 21, 2011.

This is not the first time Camping has made a bold prediction about Judgment Day.

On Sept. 6, 1994, dozens of Camping’s believers gathered inside Alameda’s Veterans Memorial Building to await the return of Christ, an event Camping had promised for two years. Followers dressed children in their Sunday best and held Bibles open-faced toward heaven.

But the world did not end. Camping allowed that he may have made a mathematical error. He spent the next decade running new calculations, as well as overseeing a media company that has grown significantly in size and reach.
