On May 21, Tweeps were busy talking about the Rupture wondering it Judgment day would really happen.
Today is May 22 in all parts of the world.
Harold Camping, the 89-year-old Oakland preacher who has spent some $100 million — and countless hours on his radio and TV show — announcing May 21 as Judgment Day is bewildered. “He just said, ‘I’m a little bewildered that it didn’t happen, but it’s still May 21 [in the United States],'” his daughter Sue Espinoza said, standing in the doorway of her Alameda home. “It’s going to be May 21 from now until midnight.”
It would appear the end of the world is not so near. Saturday was the day on which Harold Camping, the 89-year-old founder of an independent ministry, predicted that Jesus Christ would return to earth to gather the faithful into heaven.
“Most people jokingly referred to the world ending on Facebook and Twitter but went on with their regular schedules. While some had end of the world parties, while others made end of the world confessions, radio DJs played R.E.M.’s “It’s The End Of The World As We Know It” about a million times.”
“To the majority of us, today has been an event to snicker about and have fun with. So it looks like tomorrow will be back to business as usual. And luckily, no zombie sightings have been reported anywhere!”
Alfred North Whitehead says “The Day of Judgment is an important notion: but that Day is always with us”. I treat each day as if it weremy last day.
