I’m not going to be polite about this one, but I do appreciate confidence in one’s predictions–even if they’re completely stupid. The main reason for appreciation is I can document failed prophecy with screenshots. Remember Harold Campling’s huge embarrassment over predicting May 21st of 2011 for the apocalypse? Well, here’s another dumbass named Ronald Weinland predicting May 27th of this year 2012 for the end of man’s rule. And to be even more specific, here is an article by the same Ronald Weinman making it clear that Jesus will return on May 27th of this year. Apparently, the first trumpet has already sounded. It was on Dec 14, 2008 when the economy collapsed. I honestly don’t remember hearing a trumpet and the economy didn’t collapse all in one day.
Here’s my prediction. May 27, 2012 will pass unnoticed and the world will keep on truckin’ with it’s usual woes: poverty, unemployment, a couple of terrorist bombings and some dirty politics. I believe when nothing happens to end the world, this Christian author should be required to post, “I am a dumbass” on their site.
BTW: Note, this article is being written on May 22nd of 2012. He offers free books if you want a collector’s item before the 27th passes.
SIDENOTE: In case you’re feeling smug because you would never dare to attempt to predict the day of the apocalypse and yet you believe in the apocalypse, one of the biggest scams in Christianity is this: “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” By being completely vague about when he will return, Jesus (or the author claiming what Jesus said) is no better than our modern day psychics. Boy, Jesus really laid it on the line with that statement. I’m coming but you won’t know when so keep believing even if it’s when the sun burns up and the earth goes cold.
We’re all supposed to be on red alert all the time? Good plan, Jesus.
