Some end of the world predictions catch on better than others. For some reason, radio evangelist Harold Camping’s prediction of today, May 21, 2011, leads the pack and may not be surpassed for a long time (if there will still be more time).
It’s even captured the fancy of the MDB community as well. Here is what a few of us had to say about that.
- Linescratchers, a group music blog for and by LDS musicians and those who love them, came up with their Music Bucket List: Rapture Edition, featuring concerts and albums they must re-experience at least once before they die, such as: “I think I’d listen to Abbey Road for sure. Now that’s a farewell album if I ever heard one.”
- Saint Mark is graduating Sunday from law school in Boston. Sadly, that is a day after rapture. “I ran into a parade of May 21st believers. I tried to make a deal with one of them: I’ll read your brochure on why this Saturday is the day of judgment if you will take this pass along card and call the number on it on Sunday, if Sunday happens.” Find out what happened next in Judgment Day or Just Another Day of Judgment?
- Michael Lyons prefers to stick with Matthew 24′s take on the timing of the Second Coming. Still, he wonders if he can “use the predicted rapture as a way of getting out of the Fathers/Sons overnighter tonight?” Read more in No Man Knoweth – I Think I’ll Stick with That.
- Middle-aged Mormon Man brings us his revised to-do list based on the rapture date, including the following section from Friday:
Pay car payment.
Taco Bell for lunch.
Tell wife about speeding ticket.
