If you’re reading this then the world did not end yesterday…

…despite the predictions that it would. Only this time it wasn’t the Bible Decoder nut cases I’ve been following in the past. No, this time it was a group called The House Of Yahweh:

You need to put this date on your bathroom mirror. You also need to make preparations for the dark days ahead, which will affect every person on earth. However, there is a way of escape. There is a place of safety but like their unbelief in the Sabbath, the world will not believe this message, neither will they repent of their sins of murder, fornication, or theft. You need to start training now in the ways of Yahweh.

Prophecy— Nuclear War Will Start September 12, 2006

Oddly enough the website hasn’t been updated yet today acknowledging the fact that nuclear war did not, in fact, break out anywhere in the world yesterday. I’m betting they’re going to go the ever popular route of saying, “Oops! We miscalculated. The REAL start date will be thisotherrandomdatewepulledoutofourass. We’re positively sure about it this time. Really!”

  1. Nuclear War Will Start…

    Bring it on!

    And land one right on top of me, so I can die instantly and never know what hit me! Who would really want to “live through” such times anyway. 

    Dumb-ass MF-ing doomsdayers.

  2. Another ever-popular rationalization: the prediction actually prevented the catastrophe.

    In case anyone wants to mark their calendar, the twelfth (and this time for real, honest!) prediction of the nuclear destruction of New York, from those wild and crazy Bible Code guys, is either the weekend of the 15/16 or the 22/23 of September.  If it doesn’t happen, they’ve promised to don sackcloth and donate all their goods to charity.  Actually not, but it would be a nice gesture to all the poor folks who have already left New York eleven times, wouldn’t it?

  3. Mrs SEB: Who would really want to “live through” such times anyway. 

    Me. LOL
    It seems that, since I retired in late 2000, life (mine at least) is much less stressful and much more peaceful.
    Sure, stuff is happening around the place but I can’t do anything (or not much anyway) about it.
    I can only control me – well how I think at least.
    A friend, ex-work colleague, rang last nite and offered me a job which I declined.
    The money I’d make (a lot) wouldn’t adequately pay for the stress I wouldn’t enjoy.
    I told him I was much more valuable to him as a sounding board (as I have been for over 20 years – only now I’m a little more sane) rather than an employee and, there’s really nothing more that I need that money could buy.
    These times that ‘we live in’ are no better or worse than any other time in history.
    These days we have the threat of nuclear war, etc – those days we had the threat of plagues, etc – same shit – just a different smell.
    KISS wink

  4. This is a little off-topic, but I saw a great bumper sticker the other day:
    “When the Rapture comes, can I have your car?”

  5. Les et al,
    Did you see this today?

    Cult enters bunkers though doomsday uneventful

    MAUCHE, Kenya (Reuters) – Kenyan followers of a U.S.-based religious sect which predicted the world would end after a September 12 outbreak of nuclear war moved into bunkers on Wednesday despite the failure of their prediction.

    Dozens of members of the House of Yahweh—dressed in gas masks, gloves and long overcoats—have built a network of underground hideouts in the small highland village of Mauche.

    They have stocked the bunkers with dried fermented flour meant to feed them for a year, by which time sinners would have been wiped off the Earth, according to their beliefs.

  6. when i was a kid, about 8 or so, my religious aunt told us the world was going to end in the year 2000. so much for that. they always say the world is ending, then they have to keep changing the date bacause it doesn’t happen.
    someone said to me, “they say the world will end in the year 2000”, i said,“yeah, they say that every millinium.”
