This May Be The Last Monday’s Musings Post

You heard right, folks: this may be the last ‘Monday’s Musings’ post. Not because I don’t want to write any more ‘Monday Musings’. Not because I’m planning (at least not yet) to change Monday’s theme. Not because I’m planning to cut down how many posts I add to this blog. And certainly not because I’m planning to quit blogging. Nope, nothing like that.

This may be the last ‘Monday’s Musings’ post because it may be the last Monday.


In case you haven’t heard, and most of you must have by now, the world is ending on May 21st; just a few short days from now.

Be afraid. Be very afraid...

According to 89-year-old Harold Camping, Christian preacher and founder of the California-based religious broadcasting network, Family Radio, Jesus is returning this coming weekend. Judgment day will begin on May 21, 2011, and on October 21, 2011, the world will end for good.

Therefore, whatever you’re doing on May 21, make sure you wrap it up before 6 PM; that’s when it all begins. A massive earthquake will trigger enormous destruction and the world will cease to exist as we know it. In the midst of all the devastation, the Rapture will happen and Christians - yup, only Christians - will be snatched up and transported to heaven. But not all Christians; just the really good ones. And what, you ask, will happen if you’re a bad Christian or a non-Christian? Well, you’re pretty much doomed because those who remain behind will have no hope of salvation.

But don’t fret. You still have a few days to clean up your soul and get in good with God. Like Charlton Heston said in the movie ‘The Greatest Story Every Told’ where he played the role of John the Baptist: “Repent! And thou shall be saved”

Personally, I prefer the way Jim Carrey mimics Heston in the film “When Nature Calls”:

In any case, make sure you get to a local church this week to convert to Christianity. And don’t forget to add “spend some time repenting” to this week’s agenda. Just in case.


  1. "Captain Compost" !!! I just love Jim Carrey.

    Harold Camping is one nut short of a fruitcake - this isn't the first time he's predicted the end of the world. It's the fearful, confused people following him that I can't help but pity - especially their children.

  2. Want a bumper sticker 'I survived Rapture 2011'? I'd love to print some.

  3. @Jane: I imagine he'll just keep doing what he's doing until he dies - preaching and predicting. And people will keep following him.

    @Tatiana: You'd probably sell quite a few of them! Maybe you should make a small image that people can post on their websites, blogs and facebook profiles. I'm sure many people will use them.

  4. Ivynettle, I had the same thought. I told my family last night that maybe it won't be 6 PM for us, maybe it'll be later. In which case we'll have plenty of time for a BBQ; it's supposed to be a beautiful day tomorrow. May as well have something grilled as our last meal :)
