So the world ends tomorrow. Such a shame. It was a good world. But 89-year-old Christian extremist Harold Camping has done the math and confirmed it. And if there’s one thing prairie dog doesn’t do it’s argue with solid math.
I’m confident that none of this is the egomaniacal delusion of a sad, elderly lunatic who’s so self-absorbed he thinks the Earth will end when he does. Why, Just look at this guy. From a profile of Camping in today’s Telegraph:
In 1970, Mr Camping published the Biblical Calendar of History, in which he dated the creation of the world to 11,013 BC and the flood which Noah survived to 4990BC. His timeframe was based on the idea that the word “begat” in the Old Testament does not necessarily imply an immediate father-son relationship, but could refer to a patriarch and a distant descendent.
That my friends is some solid-ass reasoning. So we’re all screwed, except for the Christians about to get raptured-up. Sadly I’m not Christian so I’ll be stuck here dealing with earthquakes and lava. If I’m lucky, I’ll get to hang around to the final battle of Armageddon on Oct. 21 at which point God will destroy the world.
Since you read prairie dog, you’re doomed too. So if you’re looking for something to do, keep an eye on this page tomorrow: we’ll blog end-of-the world updates throughout the day. We have correspondents in Regina, Saskatoon and even Las Vegas, surely the centre of all evil. Look for the posts with designer Awesome Klassen’s Doomsday! logo.
Hopefully Emmet will chime in from the west coast as well. I’ll want to know what that hell-bound heathen is thinking as it all goes down.
Anyway! Should be fun! Pull up a chair and celebrate the apocalypse with us! Just look for the tag “Dooom”.
