Is The End Nigh? We’ll Know Soon Enough

Camping’s predictions have inspired other groups to rally behind the May 21 date. People have quit their jobs and left their families to get the message out.

"Knowing the date of the end of the world changes all your future plans," says 27-year-old Adrienne Martinez.

She thought she’d go to medical school, until she began tuning in to Family Radio. She and her husband, Joel, lived and worked in New York City. But a year ago, they decided they wanted to spend their remaining time on Earth with their infant daughter.

"My mentality was, why are we going to work for more money? It just seemed kind of greedy to me. And unnecessary," she says.

And so, her husband adds, "God just made it possible — he opened doors. He allowed us to quit our jobs, and we just moved, and here we are."

Now they are in Orlando, in a rented house, passing out tracts and reading the Bible. Their daughter is 2 years old, and their second child is due in June. Joel says they’re spending the last of their savings. They don’t see a need for one more dollar.

"You know, you think about retirement and stuff like that," he says. "What’s the point of having some money just sitting there?"

"We budgeted everything so that, on May 21, we won’t have anything left," Adrienne adds.

  1. May 21, is that this year or next? Seriously, these people shouldn’t be allowed to have kids.

  2. And nobody please think that these people will learn any lesson when May 22 dawns, without any rapture having occurred.

    A cult in the 50s was predicting the end of the world to happen Dec 27, 1957. When Dec 28 dawned, they didn’t admit that they were completely wrong and deluded. No, quite the contrary: That the world didn’t end proved beyond doubt that they were the chosen ones, those who saved the world because of their unshakably firm faith…

    The problem with these weirdos: They have put so much emotion and devotion in their delusion, they simply cannot accept that they are totally wrong. They will find a rationalizing excuse. And that I *guarantee* it will happen at May 22.

  3. You’re absolutely right, Steffen. Happens all the time. I used to talk to visiting Jehovah’s Witlesses and they said the date for the end of the world was set sometime in the ’70′s. Afterwards, they explained the indisputable fact that we were all still here by saying that it had been “an Error.” Didn’t change their basic ideas at all. They already believe blatant lies so one more isn’t too hard.

  4. Someone from this group was on Coast to Coast a few weeks back and George Noory kept asking if the spokesman would come on air if nothing happened on the 21st. The guy would just say “that’s just not possible, because we won’t be here” and finally said “it’s not even something I can consider, because it’s just not possible.”

    …even though the guy leading the group has predicted the end of the world (inaccurately) two times BEFORE this one.

One of the 2002 Bali bombers was captured by Pakistani commandos just a few miles from where Osama bin Laden was killed in Abbottabad by US forces earlier this week.

Next thing you know they’ll find Hitler living above the bowling alley.
