The End Is Upon Us! Oh, wait. False alarm!

From Yahoo News:

Searching for Judgment Day

We've seen a 200 percent jump in searches on Yahoo! for "May 21st." Searches are also spiking for "the rapture," "end of the world," and "Harold Camping." 

Oh, my God, really? Tell me that doesn't mean people are taking this guy seriously. Seriously, that's really him. That's really what he looks like.

 So, apparently there's some super-secret hidden code in the Bible and THIS GUY. . .

. . . has cracked it.

This guy is the only one who has figured out this super-secret code written by the Almighty himself. This guy.

So, it seems like one of two possible scenarios is taking place here.

Either a) God has this super-important message about the end of the world that he wants his children to know, but for some reason, he hid it in some elaborate code that makes the Enigma Machine look amateurish.

Or b) God hid this message in super-secret code because he DIDN'T want people to know about it, but haha! He hadn't counted on Harold Camping!



Camping said he pinned down May 21 as doomsday using clues and prophesies he found in the Bible. "It is absolutely going to happen without any question at all," Camping said in an interview. But if you look at his track record, you may not be so convinced. Camping previously predicted judgment day would be in September 1994. 

Wow! And from what I gather, there are still people who believe this nut.

You know, at least the Mayans were on to something. At least their doomsday prediction was based on something. Whether or not it has any significance, our sun will be at the exact center of the Milky Way on Dec. 21, 2012.

Mmmm, right in with all the delicious nougat!

Will this cause the world to end? Probably not. But there is some speculation that the gravitational pull of the sun and the other stars and what-not could theoretically cause the poles to shift, which could cause other bad things to happen. I assume this is highly unlikely, but at least it's something.At least the Mayans studied Astronomy and figured out patterns which allowed them to predict a cosmic event which could maybe be significant. It's better than finding some super-secret hidden code in an English translation of a book written in Ancient Hebrew.
