kyhwana2: This means there will be lots more bandwidth for the rest of us come 6pm Saturday once all the Christians disappear!


They have internet? 


According to the 2006 census, 55.6% of NZ is christians, so that basically gives us back half the backhaul/national/international traffic! Should be pretty sweet!

Some have said here no one knows the hour for the Lord comes as a thief in the night. Well Harold has his response to that here. Scroll down a little to see his response. Seems the baddies won't know but the goodies do, they will not be caught off-guard.

Harold Camping, true to his name, may need to go on a very long camping trip if the Lord doesn't take him today as there will be plenty of people after him on Sunday.

Roll on 6pm!

He's wrong. Even Christians will tell you he and his followers are sadly deluded, if not outright loonies. Unlike some parts of the Bible, that passage he's ignoring leaves no room for interpretation.

Having said that, if I were to disappear tonight I would be glad I didn't have to finish digging the huge hole in our yard... :)

I hope all airplane pilots are sinners. I mean, I don't want to see anyone dying just because these folks are raptured out of their pilot seats while in flight.

I'm sure the Lord would just drag the whole plane up too. Wouldn't be fair otherwise.

I'm still here... there's no surprises there!

But the kids are still here too, so I'd say it hasn't happened.
