So, the rapture didn’t happen last time preacher Harold Camping said it would. When May 21 finally rolled around, there weren’t any trumpet sounds and Camping — along with millions of other Christians — didn’t rise up into the sky. Maybe the end wasn’t nigh after all. But a whole lot of atheists in Seattle had a fun party and raised a few thousand dollars for a non-religious camp for kids. Now, Camping is saying the real rapture happens later this month. May 21 was a deadline of sorts — an “invisible judgment day.” In other words, if you weren’t saved then, you’re going to be in a lot of trouble come Oct. 21. So far, no Seattle-area “rapture day” parties are planned for that date. Earlier this year, a a local atheist group planned a party to mark the end of Camping’s “countdown to backpedaling.” Here’s the message Camping is putting out on the website for his Family Radio organization: Thus we can be sure that the whole world, with the exception of those who are presently saved (the elect), are under the judgment of God, and will be annihilated together with the whole physical world on October 21, 2011, on the last day of the present five months period. On that day the true believers (the elect) will be raptured. We must remember that only God knows who His elect are that He saved prior to May 21. via Harold Camping predicts Oct. 21 rapture — again | Seattle’s Big Blog – seattlepi.com. // Harold, Harold, Harold.  What are we going to do with you? My hope is that this new prediction will get little press coverage this time around.  It’s an embarrassment.  Those who do not know Christ very easily lump all of us who do with the Harold Camping camp. “Those crazy Christians.” My hope is that Jesus will come quickly.  But I don’t expect him to let me know exactly when it will be.

This from the New York Daily News… A celebration that the end of the world had not come turned tragic for a group of Michigan teens when one of their friends went missing in the Kalamazoo River. Jordan Skinner-Knapp told the Kalamazoo Gazette that he, along with a group of five of his friends jumped off a bridge into the river to celebrate that the world did not come to an end. After they landed in the swift current, Jordan said he watched in horror as his friend Anthony Thompson was overwhelmed by the water. “The current overtook him and I tried to pull him out but he kept trying to pull me down and I couldn’t get him out of the river,” Jordan told WWMT-TV. Jordan told the newspaper that he had told Anthony, who didn’t know how to swim, not to jump. But Anthony was swept away – to the horror of his friends and bystanders, including a Little League team who rushed to the side of the river when they heard him screaming  and saw him with his hands waving in the air. via Michigan teen missing after jumping off bridge to celebrate world didn’t end. Ironic.  Sad.  Unnecessary.
