    I will bite my tongue on this matter, but let me share a little lesson I learned the hard way.

    You are on a discussion forum.
    By making this post, it is open for everybody.
    It's very hypocritical to do so, and then decide who can and cannot be included in said discussion. Who are you to decide who is and is not with valid opinion/point.

    Furthermore, as a general...erm, ettiquite, there are two things you should never mention in public / out of place: politics and religion. To do so is asking to open "Pandora's Box".

    By your own quote, only the Father knows. So what makes you so sure? Nations war with each other constantly; earthquakes happen all the time. I've heard much more reliable-sounding predictions and they didn't come true (obviously.) How do you even know that the end times will be an actual date, and not some metaphysical event that humans aren't even capable of imagining?
    There's a group advertising the end of days (May 21st, according to them) on the back of Seattle buses. I saw this while I was waiting for my leg surgery yesterday and it made me giggle:

    The truth is that people have been predicting doomsday for longer than recorded history and it's never been a reality-changing, spiritual thing. I'm sure some folks have predicted the end of their town/nation/culture, perhaps in a great cataclysm, but that can be explained through sheer numbers alone - if you flip a coin enough you're bound to guess it right some of the time.
    There's a whole (scientific) study of prophesying, and if you appreciate the Bible, I suggest you inform yourself on it. I'd look up the name but it's in one of my history-of-science books that's on the top shelf of my bookcase and rather inaccessible with my leg all bound up. There are a lot of people who will use your love of Christ to take advantage of you, so you really need to be informed if you want to sort through all the BS.
    For me, the Oracle of Google is more than enough:

    No, antichrist comes well before the actual day. That's one part of the end-times that's fairly cut-and-dry so far as I understand.

    I'll just throw out dec 21, 2012 too while we are at it. Maybe the Mayan's knew all along

    Kidding aside, eou, to state an opinion as fact in the manner you have done isn't very P.C. and shows a bit of disrespect to others who may not necessarily agree or have the same faith as you. Just my 2 cents.

    I like the parts where dogs learn to drive cars and Japan becomes an entirely robot nation. I wonder if I can become a cyborg and emigrate. XD
