Don't say we didn't warn you. We told you in December the world was going to end on May 21. Back then you had more than five months to repent. You now have just five days.
Hey, still doable.
The doomsday prediction comes courtesy of We Can Know, a Christian group that believes that it's possible to divine the exact day of judgment from reading the Bible, and those revelations reveal the world will end on May 21.
Because this year supposedly marks the 7,000th anniversary of the Noah's Ark flood, and May 21st is supposedly the day the ark set sail. Here's the doomsayers' explanation:
Keep in mind that God shut the door on the ark on the 17th day of the 2nd month of Noah's calendar. We also find that May 21st, 2011 is the end of the great tribulation period. There is a strong relationship between the 2nd month and 17th day of Noah's calendar and May 21st, 2011 of our Gregorian calendar. This relationship cannot be readily seen until we discover that there is another calendar to consider, which is the Hebrew (or Biblical) calendar. May 21st, 2011 happens to be the 17th day of the 2nd month of the Hebrew calendar. By this, God is confirming to us that we have a very correct understanding regarding the 7000-year timeline from the flood. May 21st, 2011 is the equivalent date to the date when God shut the door on Noah's ark. Through this and much other Biblical information, we find that May 21st, 2011 will be the day when God takes up into heaven His elect people. May 21st, 2011 will be Judgment Day! This is the day God shuts the door of salvation on the world.
