    Ok guys all the evidence indicates that the end of the world will be brought about by hordes of ravenous zombies. If May 21st is Z-day, be sure to stock up on food, supplies and weaponry. Of course the most important thing you'll need... is style. I recommend trench coats, shades and a post-apocalyptic blade:

    Zombie Tools | Weapons Catalog | Zombie-Killing Machetes, Swords, Blades

    Shotgun the rough n ready bone machete :cool:

    The world is ending? Dang, I might as well go ahead & buy that forklift I've been drooling over.
    I can lift machinery & crush zombies (or "the living impaired", as they prefer to be called) all at the same time!

    I imagine the remark is in reference to John 3:16
    "For God so loved the world he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not die but have eternal life."

    I will be brewing my "Rapture Rhapsody" beer to be cracked open May 21, 2011.

    Any takers?

    This is all I have left in life. If it is wrong, than I will withdraw quite severely, and learn life all over fresh and a new.
    I am addicted to this teaching and no matter what I do I can not stop believing it. I realize it may be unhealthy, but I have no one to help me see another way. It is not easy being possessed by something that you have no idea why you are possessed by it.
    The sadder part is that I may have to realize my brain is malfunctioned and I am stupid, retarded somehow. It saddens me and makes me hurt that my children have such a father. I don't speak of such things to them anymore, and enjoy our time immensely these days. I have been buying them whatever they want (within reason), taking lots of trips, and just trying to be as loving as I can with them. Everyone seems very happy, except me... Inside anyway, it hurts...

    Sorry everyone, I can't help it. As a matter of fact I am crying right now thinking of how stupid I am and how out of control this notion is. I wish someone could help me.

    Don't worry too much about it, if you're right then you can make a small fortune selling "I told you so" T-shirts on the last day. If you're wrong, then you'll have a massive bugbear removed and you get a fresh start ;)
    Assuming you're wrong, life should be all the sweeter for you afterwards, having been relieved of this nagging worry.

    I'm actually curious as to how you managed to pinpoint it to exactly 240 days?

    Dear Just_me_Mike,
    You seem genuinely upset here and I sense you truly wish to overcome your pain.

    As active as you are on this forum, I doubt very much that you be retarded or stupid and I do think you ought to put such negative ideas aside if you can, for you know they do you no good.

    Unfortunately, I have not personally come across your posts before and so, I don't really know anything about your beliefs. Why e.g., are you convinced that the world will end on a certain date? And why is this so important for your well-being?

    I am so sorry for you. That is very sad. You are not stupid at all for believing that. I would like to know what brought you to that belief. Something had to have led you there.
    But I am glad to hear you are spending the time with your kids. That is good for all of you.

    I guess I should turn my attention to lots of sex, wine drinking, traveling, and more intense adventures. I don't think that I can get redemption in just 240 days for all the **** I've done :cool:
    might as well go down like a Greek god who flipped his middle finger at Father Zeus after running off with all the Ambrosia from the Olympian cellar!
