Rapture

Honestly, I didn't even know what this was until a day before it was supposed to happen. It's another end of the world 'prophecy'. That's all I know about it and some bits and pieces that I read online. The person who predicted this 'rapture' is now saying that he miscalculated and that the REAL end of the world is in October of this year. Oh c'mon!

One thing I don't understand is how people can buy something like this. When I say 'buy'...I mean the whole nine yards. I read that a believer actually spent his life savings to spread the word since he would no longer need it after May 21. I hope he has some kind of a job to keep him alive until the next end of the world on October 21, 2011. Another person maxed out his credit cards and took a trip thinking he won't have to pay it off since the world is [was] ending last Saturday. TOINK!!!!

There are a lot more other stories on how some people were taken by this 'rapture'. I have no idea how this man came up with his computation resulting to the 'rapture' but I wish he just stopped when his prediction didn't happen. But he's still going on trying to convince his followers it's going to happen...on Oct. 21. I wonder how many of these followers still believe in his latest 'prophecy'. I hope NONE.

Hello Huling! Musta ka na? Did you wait for the rupture? Lol! As for us, we did! though we were in a beach resort. Nagka-countdown kami kaya dami namin tuloy kinain kasi baka last lunch na namin yun eh! aha ha ha!

Sobrang nakakaawa yung mga followers na naniwala 'no? Di kaya kailangan nila magpatingin sa psychiatrist?

Weekend na naman! Sana wala na si Chedeng dito tomorrow. Summer pa rin ba dyan? Time to enjoy weekend again! See you ulit soon! Ingat!
