nekom: Diogenes: I have a friend whose mother is a religious fanatic. She surprisingly didn't buy into this Rapture crap. But seeing how my friend interacts with her makes me sad. He loves her, but she's simply impossible to deal with anymore.

I can't help but have a bit of sympathy for the suckers who bought into this. But the families and friends of these nitwits get the lion's share of that sympathy.

Some people just can't help themselves. I don't blame Camping fully, the crazy was already there, he just gave them a vessel for it to latch on to. I've watched a total religious nutjob go crazy over Y2K (not a religious event per se, but those kind of people have the same mind set), we've all heard of the Heaven's Gate suicide, and so many more. It's just another instance of people desperately wanting to believe in something, happens all the time. Nothing new under the sun and all that.


I worked for a small family-owned business back in 1999. I was one of two employees who weren't members of their crazy sedevacantist Catholic church. The receptionist (who happened to be the CEO's mom) was absolutely convinced that Jesus was coming on January 1st, 2000, for reasons that remain unclear to me.

Anyway, they let the company go to hell. I had paychecks bounce, vendors didn't get paid, and so on. They literally thought the company wouldn't be there in January (and it was becoming a self-fulfilling prophesy).

Anyway, the receptionist was convinced enough that we were really worried that when Jesus didn't show up she was going to possibly harm herself or someone else. Thankfully, she came in on the 2nd and acted like nothing had happened (well, nothing had happened).

It always amazes me that things like the DSM-IV and other psychological texts specifically exempt religious beliefs from the diagnostic criteria of insanity. That woman was insane.

SoCalSurfer: Chewlies Gum Representative: I was watching Spiderman on Broadway shortly before the 6pm deadline passed. During one scene, the guy playing spiderman made a crack about how he wanted to be with Mary jane because you never know when the world might end. Obviously it wasn't in the script because the girl playing Mary Jane started cracking up right on stage. It was awesome.

You actually paid for that?


Yep. Good show. Don't know why everyone bags on it so hard. The acrobatics are incredible and the guy that plays Green Goblin was awesome.

I love how he basis this on his study of the Bible.

Matthew 24:44 (New International Version)

44 So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.

Let's pretend the bible actually says something about the rapture. Let's pretend that the original Greek doesn't have to be misinterpreted in the so-called "Rapture Passages" for it to exist. Let's pretend the rapture isn't merely extra-biblical sectarian tradition.

In order to predict it you'd have to first be able to predict the second coming, an event that the bible says not even the angels in heaven can predict.

Summary: Anyone claiming to know the date of the rapture can be easily defeated using his own holy book given the following:

1) The text you are using to predict the rapture doesn't support the notion that there is a rapture.

2) The variable needed to predict the rapture is expressly stated by the text in question as unavailable to anyone or anything within creation including angels who hang out with God all the time.

Larry Mahnken: Barakku: These people are stupider than you might initially think, if you REALLY thought the rapture was coming you would realize that suicide means you sure as hell aren't going into heaven, based on your own religious beliefs. So you decide to take yourself out of the game in the bottom of the 9th inning.

If the rapture has happened and you're still here, you are beyond salvation. That's supposed to be how that goes.

I supposed God would turn off the "death" rules, though, so you couldn't suicide your way out of the torment.


These people killed themselves ahead of time though. The first example is extra crazy too; I can't believe these people that think their awesome god is going to horrifically torture and mutilate their children for all of eternity. They do realize it was Jesus Christ right, not Jesus Voorhees?

Meh, it's more accurate to say "You're a delusional loon" than "Well, the Bible actually says this." Religious nutbags need to be dealt with honestly and bluntly, which means unfortunate things for moderately religious folks who aren't nutbags because the blunt and honest truth is that all religious dogmas are bullsh*t and should not be taken seriously.

Um... what?

That would be these idiots.

I remember who they were, but I really don't remember them being Christian at all, aside from taking a few bits and pieces and melding it with their much more prominent new age UFO stuff.


Well, they *claimed* to be christian, which is all it takes. Admittedly, the whole "Jesus was a spaceship alien" bit isn't in the bible.

velvet_fog: What I like most about this whole story is how mainstream Christians are the most outspoken critics of this guy. Camping is out there making a mockery of the faith and I like watching how the more moderate believers try to distance themselves from his particular brand of nonsense despite the fact that their own nonsense isn't that far removed from what Camping preaches.


However, the reason a significant amount of Christians think he's crazy is that he has predicted it. There are a lot of them who don't think the general idea of the Rapture and the end times is crazy, just predicting it. And that's just a hair less crazy, IMHO.

Kome: moderately religious


I never understood moderately religious people. I mean, people who believe every word of the Bible is completely true are, in my opinion, incorrect, but I understand why they would believe that. But to say that this part of some religious text is true but that part isn't but it's all the inspired Word of God just seems like a difficult position to hold.

It's like the fundamentalist Christians who eat rare steak. The New Testament specifically forbids the eating of blood. How can they say the parts of the New Testament that, to them, mean homosexuality is a sin are true, but the part that very clearly states eating blood is a sin isn't?

Ablejack: Camping's running a non-prophet organization.


It has no prophets, but oddly enough seems to have much profit.

And it doesn't pay taxes.

What sickens me is that there's still people who are buying his "dazed and confused" spiel. They're saying he should give back the 73 million he fleeced "because he obviously didn't mean to con people".

What I'd like to know is did he give back all the money he got in 1994 when he failed at predicting Armageddon the first time. I'm betting he didn't, but I'd love to know.

Cause I'm guessing a sizable portion of that 73 million gets reinvested towards funding his next prospective failed prediction extravaganza.

Lord Dimwit: The New Testament specifically forbids the eating of blood.


The Old Testament does. The New Testament calls for the ceremonial practice of simulating the drinking of Christ's blood.

In summary the O.T. was God's people under a list of elleventy billion rules you had to follow to be sanctified. Including the prohibition on eating blood.

In the N.T. Christ comes and says "You guys suck mightily at following rules. So I'll work out a deal with Dad that I take on the guilt of all your rule-breaking, which of course is a capital offense. I'll take the sentence for you and if you constantly pray to me apologizing for breaking the rules that got me killed I'll square it between you and Dad. Deals?"

The result is later Peter has a vision in which God tells him it's OK to eat whatever now. Because all animals are clean.

In regards to TFA, I was wondering how long it'd be before reading about the tards that offed themselves due to this. Shame that lady didn't succeed after killing her kids. I'm usually a rather callous individual when it comes to the general public, but that is farked up.

Luckily she didn't succeed at killing her kids either.

Still pretty crappy either way. Those kids get to grow up remembering that mom tried to off them due to her delusional views.

Yes, and then at the Council of Jerusalem as described in Acts, attended by many of the Apostles (who, presumably would be authorities on the topic since they actually hung out with Jesus), determined that the rules against eating blood in the Old Testament would apply to gentile Christians as well.

In fact, one of the major topics of the Council of Jerusalem was the so-called circumcision question, i.e. what of the old law would apply to gentiles? Jewish Christians of course had to hew to the Law in its entirety, but what about gentile Christians?

They determined that gentile Christians couldn't worship idols, perform fornication (which is how the bigots say the New Testament bans homosexuality), or eat blood.

So if you say that the New Testament says being gay is wrong, but eat a bloody steak, you are a hypocrite.

I know that we colloquially refer to rare steaks as "bloody" but you know that there's no blood there right? The red color is from iron in the myglobin that is found in muscle tissue. (I guess there's trace amounts of blood???) I mean, go to a philipino BBQ, you'll see REAL blood on your dinner plate there.

Well at least 2000 is a big round number. People always ascribe significance to big round numbers. I'm not sure, outside of religious nuts, what people thought was going to happen in 2000. Did they think that all of our nuclear missiles have code "if year = 0 then goto launchall" or something? We had an old mainframe that stores the year as 2 digits, patched a little code together and it's still running to this day. Every IT department in the world knew it was coming and prepared accordingly, everyone who remotely understood computers KNEW it was going to be absolutely fine, perhaps some systems would have minor glitches and need patched after the fact, but absolutely no major concern. And yet, OMG BIG ROUND NUMBER! I remember my sister's friend complaining that his dinners sucked because all the good food was in the Y2K shelter.

What can you do with people like that? Just have to roll your eyes and disregard them I suppose. Perhaps enjoy a hearty laugh at their expense, but sometimes they're almost too sad to laugh at.

My first (and fave) experience with Coming Apocalypse was in 1985, when I was on a high school field trip to Port Aransas, Texas. We'd stopped at a gas station to get drinks and stuff and some guys were handing out badly-printed broadsides--the kind of design you'd see on 50s paper restaurant placemats. On them were drawings of God, Jesus and some woman in flowing gowns identified as the Holy Spirit, all suspended in space, watching Halley's Comet fly by Earth. The comet, of course, was the Harbinger of Doom, and 1986 was The End Times.

Good stuff. I wish I'd kept my copy.

And the Council of Jerusalem, held as canonical by all of the Churches, was considered to be valid as well. Why does Paul, a man who never met Jesus in his life, get to overrule a council of the Apostles?

Peter, prince of the Apostles, plainly states that he ate nothing that wasn't kosher, including blood, even after the conversion on the road to Damascus.

Plus, the Greek which you cite is ambiguous and has been for nearly two thousand years. In fact, the interpretation that it declares all food clean is a very hard one to make - you would have to say that a verb and its direct object are over forty words apart in the text. The interpretation that I cite, requires a distance of two words.

So, on balance, you have the Council of Jerusalem and the Apostles, including the Prince of the Apostles, saying that blood is forbidden for Christians, versus an ambiguous and probably metaphorical statement by one man who never met Jesus.
