Sam and Dean Winchester. just love them!

Tar and feather the apocalypse crackpots!

Once upon a time individuals like Harold Camping would have been tarred and feathered like the charlatans they are.
What we call “Revelations” is only a fantasy delusion of a diseased mind. There shall be no Apocalypse, no Second coming, no rapture, ever. The whole End of the World charade is only a glorified myth, like Ragnarok. It isn’t true. The whole bible is a glorified collection of sayings, homilies and myths. Far from being “inerrant” is full of errors,horrors and lies. We should denounce this idiotic bibliolathry!
And what about this? "God was only testing our faith!"
What baloney is that?
God is supposed to be omniscient. Does he/she/it need to "test"?
Jesus is quoted as saying "before this generation (HIS generation,first third of the first Century) will pass, I shall return". That generation has passed, he did not return.
No, don't tell me the "For God a Thousand years is like a day" rigmarole. A human generaton doesn't last a thousand years.Either Jesus was wrong, or He never said that, you choose as you like.Or maybe he was talking of His Resurrection? Anyway, those poor chaps of the first century believed he should be back SOON. The final words of that blasted acid trip, "Revelations" or "Apocalypse" are: "Do come, Jesus, O Lord! Jesus replies "Yes, I'm coming soon". SOON, not in 2011, or 2012.
All those doomsayers throughout the centuries were delusional and deluded their followers.
The only Apocalipse there will be (if our humans won't bring about it with nuclear wars or pollution and/or stupidity) is when our Sun will become too hot for life to survive on Earth, previous to becoming a Red Giant. When? Some thousand of millions years from now. Don't hold your breath.

Raptor

From "Another Mile Marker's" blog

I've been hearing all this crap about a raptor ending the world or something this weekend. Apparently, I misheard... it was the 'Rapture' that they were talking about, not a prehistoric thingy. The 2011 End Times Prediction they were talking about is a prediction made by Christian radio host Harold Camping (the President of the Family Radio Christian Network) that the Rapture (in Christian belief, the taking up into heaven of God's elect people) will take place on May 21st, 2011. There are several 'biblical proofs' that he has argued, this being one of them:

1. According to Harold Camping, the number five equals "atonement", the number ten equals "completeness", and the number seventeen equals "heaven".

2. Christ is said to have hung on the cross on April 1, 33 AD. The time between April 1, 33 AD and April 1, 2011 is 1,978 years.

3. If 1,978 is multiplied by 365.2422 days (the number of days in a solar year, not to be confused with the lunar year), the result is 722,449.

4. The time between April 1 and May 21 is 51 days.

5. 51 added to 722,449 is 722,500.

6. (5 × 10 × 17)2 or (atonement × completeness × heaven)2 also equals 722,500.

Thus, Camping concludes that 5 × 10 × 17 is telling us a "story from the time Christ made payment for our sins until we're completely saved. Further, he claims that the end of the world as we know it will occur 5 months later on September 21st, 2011. He previously stated that the world would end September, 1994. After doing a little research, the only tragedies that happened September, 1994 were the premieres of both Friends on NBC and the Howard Stern radio show, both pretty scary in their own right. I suppose the lesson to be learned here is that evil hair (the 'Rachel' and the 'dried out frizz') came out of those shows?

I think this is a lot of thinking about something that we really don't have any control over. Frankly, I hope that it does come true.... let all the bible pounders be swooped up so there are some parking spaces under my favorite tree at the church where I usually wax my truck on Sundays... and the gays can have a peaceful parade without some wing-nut, hyper-Christian spoiling the fun. We're queer, we're here... and you're not! End of story.

Maybe this is what they meant by 'the meek shall inherit the earth'?

May 21 Rapture Scheduled for 6 p.m. Post by LAURI LEBO

http://www.religiondispatches.org/dispatches/laurilebo/4602/may_21_rapture_scheduled_for_6_p.m._/

I’ve been fielding a lot of questions from friends about the upcoming Rapture, which Christian doomsday prognosticator Harold Camping and his sad motley group of followers say will take place May 21. This is the day that true believers will be taken up to heaven, while everybody else -- Jews, Hindus, Muslims, Buddhists, atheists, agnostics and anyone who supports gay marriage or accepts evolution -- will be stuck here on Earth for another six months while war and pestilence rains down on us. Then, on Oct. 21, the world will end.

For the big day, a lot of heathens I know, such as American Atheists and the Center for Inquiry chapters, are throwing big Rapture parties. And for party planning purposes, they need to know some critical details. For instance, exactly what time will the Rapture take place? If I’m still here, how will I know when it happens? What music should I play? And most importantly, what’s a good cocktail to serve for Judgment Day?


Peter Finocchiaro at Salon deserves a lot of credit for delving into Camping’s reasons for why he predicts May 21 will be Judgment Day, which has something to do with the anniversary of Noah’s Ark, the end of Tribulation, which began 23 years ago (Who knew?) and the mathematical formula 5+10+17=Armageddon.

But more importantly, the article also answers many practical questions for party planners. As one of Camping’s followers explained, the Rapture won’t begin until 6 p.m. Now, I know you’re probably thinking, “Is that in Eastern or Pacific Standard Time?”

Well, because God created time zones -- just as he apparently created US international borders -- the Rapture will begin at 6 p.m. in each time zone. Also, you’ll know when the Rapture will begin because it will be preceded by an earthquake.

…"starting in the Pacific Rim at around the 6 p.m. local time hour, in each time zone, there will be a great earthquake, such as has never been in the history of the Earth," he says. The true Christian believers -- he hopes he's one of them -- will be "raptured": They'll fly upward to heaven. And for the rest?

"It's just the horror of horror stories," he says, "and on top of all that, there's no more salvation at that point. And then the Bible says it will be 153 days later that the entire universe and planet Earth will be destroyed forever."

As for the perfect cocktail to serve, the article didn’t mention one. So I e-mailed my colleague Bill Toland, who is the spirits and libations reporter for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, for some suggestions. Toland contributed the following:

Death in the Afternoon

A recipe verified in the 1935 humoristic celebrities' cocktail book titled 'So Red the Nose, or Breath in the Afternoon' edited by the famous journalist and author Sterling North and Carl Kroch.

As Ernest Hemingway wrote of the drink: "This was arrived at by the author and three officers of the H.M.S. Danae after having spent seven hours overboard trying to get Capt. Bra Saunders' fishing boat off a bank where she had gone with us in a N.W. gale."

It seems highly unlikely that Hemingway would have drunk this concoction if given a choice. In most cases the mixture ruins both ingredients, which would have annoyed him. In this case, they most likely took advantage of the mixture to ward off the effects of a bad day in rough water, as champagne was considered a sea-sickness 'cure'.

- 1 jigger of absinthe added to a champagne flute
- Add iced champagne until it attains the proper opalescence.
- A small amount of sugar or Gomme syrup can be added to round it out, especially when using a verte absinthe.

If Death in the Afternoon doesn’t sound like your thing, Toland also suggests a Blue Heaven, which is Amaretto, rum, Blue Curacao, pineapple juice and a pineapple garnish.

He adds, “There are also drinks called the Dead Bastard, the Gates of Hell, and, of course, the Kamikaze. None of these are really classic cocktails in any sense, but the names seem to fit.”

As for music selection, I’d like to hear from readers. What would be your Judgment Day playlist?

UPDATE:

For beer drinkers, there's also a drink for you. Evan Benn, the official beer taster for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, offered this:

Stone Levitation Ale would be a no-brainer -- a flavorful but not super strong craft beer that will help lift you up to meet your maker...Cocktail-wise, I don't know if it fits the theme, but the drink that I've been seeing all over at fancy-schmancy cocktail bars is the Corpse Reviver No. 2. It's a mix of gin, lemon juice and some other stuff that's killer.

Goodnight, lovers

Jocks gay kiss

Sunny , sunny boy

DSK DSK...




Hey mr Dominick Strauss-Khan
You thought you owned the world
When you saw a poor humble maid
you tried to rape her
Hey Mr Dominick Strauss-Khan
No-one belongs to you
Keep your filthy prick off us
Or the law will get you
Hey Mr Dominick Strauss-Khan
You're reaping what you deserved
And power isn't an excuse
For you the others to abuse
