Visitors: “End of The World is Almost Here”

April 11, 2011

The end of the world is almost here – according to literature being handed out by a group of people in Hamilton today.

The group consists of approximately 30 visitors to the island who traveled here for a two-day stay during which they are spreading the word of the impending “end of the world.”

The group was out and about today [Apr.11] in the City of Hamilton handing out literature and CD-roms about the “impending Judgement Day” to interested and not-so interested persons.

The group is convinced by their reading of the Bible that the end of the world will begin May 21, 2011. They say May 21st is Judgment Day — so they are not saying the world will end next month — it’s just the beginning of the end. The actual end of the world, they say, will be on October 21, 2011.

These are the teachings expoused by 89-year-old preacher Harold Camping of California, the owner and operator of Familyradio.com, which is run entirely off the millions of dollars it receives in donations from followers.

This isn’t the first time Mr Camping has made this prediction, having previously said the world would end in September 1994. Followers of Mr Camping gathered with him and awaited the end of the world. Clearly, it did not come.

That, he says, was a mistake, a misreading of the biblical codes used to decipher the exact date of the ‘rapture’. There was some error with his calculations, a mistake he claims he did not make this time.

In 2003, the Associated Press reported that “An influential Christian radio host, best known for his failed predictions of the second coming of Christ, has run into more derision and criticism for telling listeners to abandon church. Harold Camping says his Bible studies have revealed that what he calls ‘the church age’ has ended. He has told his worldwide radio audience that Satan has taken over all churches.”

The Associated Press also quote David Clark, who tracks Christian fringe groups, as saying “He’s got pastors all over the United States in an uproar. He’s gone over the edge this time.”

According to the group’s website, there is various “proof” that May 21 2011 is the judgement day. According to them, Noah’s great flood occurred in the year 4990 B.C., which indicates that May 21, 2011 will be judgement day. To also provide “proof,” the exact date of the crucifixion – April 1, 33 AD – is used. According to their reasoning, there are 722,500 days from April 1, 33 A.D. until May 21, 2011 – the alleged day of judgment.

In addition, the website claims “God has planned today’s situation of Gay Pride and same-sex marriages to show the world that it is on the threshold of Judgment Day. He has shown us that an obviously parallel situation exists between Sodom, when it was on the threshold of destruction, and the world of our day, which is on the threshold of destruction.”

This group, which is not connected with a church, did not contain any locals, nor are they affiliated with any local organizations. Most of those visiting Bermuda are from the New York area, and on the island for the first time. Other followers of Familyradio are traveling in various other locations to “spread the word.”

The group is handing out items including the flyer below from FamilyRadio:

    • itwasn'tme says:

  3. Free Vacation says:

    I’m loving the fact that they chose Bermuda to spread their message. We need the visitors:)

  4. Nutso says:

    This just makes me laugh, how can people be so stupid?

    • SOMERSET OG says:

      @Nutso. Religion is why people are stupid! People kill people and hate people because they don’t believe the same thing. Stupid. Can’t build a mosque near the world trade just because your muslim? Stupid! Timothy McVeigh was a christian and killed alot of people so maybe we shouldn’t let christians build anything near normal people. Stupid. Catholic priests can’t marry so they touch little boys? Stupid! G0d got you a job or a new car but let little kids starve in Africa? Stupid.

      • GPS says:

        CO-SIGN!!

      • Fed Up Bermudian says:

        OK, I get that extremists of any description aren’t who I want to associate with, but it seems that you’re hating on Christians alone. By your reasoning, what about Buddhist priests- they’re not allowed to marry but you don’t hear a lot about boys in their faith being molested. Try this on for stupid- assumption that it’s the celibate lifestyle that encourages kiddie diddlers. I agree that religion taken to extremes is dangerous, but it’s also because of Christianity and religion that we have organizations like Loads of Love, Hands of Love, the Salvation Army- all of which are doing good work in our community. Painting with that broad a brush does no one any good. Religion isn’t WHY people are stupid- there’s unfortunately just a lot of stupid people involved in religion. Please make that distinction, else you sound- well, stupid. Not everyone who practices a faith is an idiot, and not all idiots are religious.

  5. Todd says:

    A friend of mine was stopped and he says he asked, seeing as the end was near, would they be willing to sign over all their worldly possessions to him. They were not amused…. LMAO!!!

  6. Nicole says:

    LMAOOOOOOOOOOOO! Get these nutcases out of here! I would have laughed in their faces if they tried to hand me some booklet crap about the end of the world! Besides don’t they know the real date is December 21st 2012. LOL!

  7. Not only is the so-called “Rapture” NOT going to occur on May 21st, it isn’t going to occur EVER. And I can promise you this with absolute 100% certainty. There will be no “Rapture,” no “Second Coming,” no “End Of Days.” There most certainly will continue to be wars, plagues, and natural disasters as there have always been, but there won’t be anything supernatural about them. And most importantly there is no such thing as “prophecy” … except for the self-fulfilling kind.

    In a perverse sort of way, I actually WISH that Harold Camping was right! What an interesting day that would be! What would be even more interesting is if the Apocalypse were to occur in a more spectacular fashion, not in the anthropomorphical sense the authors of the “Left Behind” series have portrayed, but as more of a Stephen Spielberg production, with boiling clouds, trumpets, angels descending out of the sky, Moon turned to blood, the whole nine yards. Imagine coming to the realization that it was all coming true, just as the evangelists had been warning for years, and that there was something more awesome than just the cold, hard, physical reality we inhabit. Imagine actually watching people disappear into thin air! Wouldn’t THAT be something???

    Yet in the final analysis, it’s that cold, hard, physical reality that I will content myself with. My life is not so meaningless that I need the fear of a “Rapture” and the “End Times” to make sense of it all … nor do I need Heaven or Hell to bribe me into behaving decently, thank you very much.

    Since the death of Jesus, people in every generation for over 2,000 years and hundreds of generations have wanted to be the one that experiences the end of days. None has. There must be a clue in there somewhere for you.

    If you waited at a bus stop for 2,000 years, at what point would you conclude that the bus wasn’t coming? Or would you just stand there … FOREVER … because somebody had stuck up a “bus stop” sign?

  8. Reality Check says:

    The Kingdom of God Lies Within…Trust NO man!!!

  9. United says:

    I remember over 30 years ago at the entrance of then Warwick Secondary School every now and then some morons with pamphlets with the end of the world literature. Hilarious. These must be their off spring. I guess in a few generations eventually it will become true.

  10. hurry up says:

    Well I hope they are right this student loan and mortage is killing me: I am sure the banks want them out of the island quickly……

    got to love religous zelots, they are almost as bad as the sevendays

  11. Lunacy says:

    This is what outrages us Agnostics/Atheists. So it’s fine if this group hands out pamphlets promoting the end of the world because they are a Christan denomination but I’m deemed evil for expressing my views against organised religion?

    The same with 2012…come on already! Stop spending hours in front of the computer and just enjoy life for what it is. I for one will not be losing sleep nor hope!

    In Science’s name we praise, oboy!

    • hmmm says:

      ace boy, i’m sure she was joking about 2012. like, “haha”. try it.

      • Nicole says:

        LOL thank you “hmmm”.

        • Lunacy says:

          I wasn’t targeting Nicole…just saying that there are a lot of people out there who believe in 2012 and are preparing for it. Btw I don’t see anything funny about it.

          • LOL (original) says:

            Really first I’ve heard of that care to say give a % of people who are prepairing for it. You know as a scientis you would have a study on the stats no?

            LOL

            • Scott says:

              are you serious? yeah theres a few nuts out there gettin ready for 2012.. dunno why they believe a Mayan calendar but i guess they also believed aliens were coming from a comet.

              i think here you are just tryin to play semantics or taking it a bit too literally, just for the sake of argument.

    • LOL (original) says:

      To answer your question about why people who do believe deem your belief eveil is clear as day below in the posts see for your self and then put atheist where you see Christian and you’ll see what I mean. Further more its those that are 1. people who care about you and believe they will miss you in heaven or 2 those not truely Christian in heart that say these things to others in an attempt to convert when the mission is to inform and let the person choose not to try to choose for them. For # 2 it usually starts with how can you believe… I’ve fallen into the trap before as well but I know its not my job to convince.

      LOL to each his/her own

  12. Common Sense says:

    What a tragedy that young, otherwise bright young people, can be so wrongly led down a ridiculous garden path by religious nut-cases. Sort of reminds me of the Peter Cook and Dudley Moore skit, “Prepare for the end of the world” in which a group of believers sit on top of a hill waiting for the end of the world, and when nothing happens at the predicted time their leader says, “Well, never mind. Same time, same place tomorrow. We can’t always be wrong!” If their multi-million dollar organization truly believes what they say can they please agree to sell ALL of their property and worldly possessions on the day before the “conflagration” – or better still, donate the whole lot to charity.

    I plan to have my boat over by May 24th (3 days after this big event). What’s the betting we’ll have a great time!!

    • Citizen Banned says:

      Also someone forgot the picnic basket in the Cook and Moore skit. That’s probably why the world didn’t end.

      • Common Sense says:

        They also weren’t sure whether the time was GMT! Whatever time zone – nothing happened. It will be exactly the same on 21st May. God would never deliberately plan to spoil our national holiday.

  13. Truth says:

    Actually, to those who are truly Bible-believers and wondering about this sort of thing, the Bible clearly says that “no man knows the day or time” and that it will come “as a thief in the night.”

    Making calculations about May 21, December 21, 2012 or any other date is foolish and useless, and not how God intended us to spend our time on earth.

    Live today to the fullest; tomorrow is promised to no-one.

    • hmmm says:

      the leafleters have a section on that in their pamphlet. very unclear. but they acknowledge that the bible says it nonetheless.

      lol. anyway, their leader chief man achieved the date via “code”.

      • Grubster says:

        Oh dear, you actually wasted five minutes of your time reading their leaflet

    • Mona Lisa says:

      amen to that……that goes for all of the movie makers in the Usa….. religious groups….and so forth!!! preach it!!! They pic the wrong place to come to spread that message!

      • ._./ says:

        We have 115 Churches representing 29 faiths attended by about 84% of the population.

        If there’s ANY place to spout of biblical tripe, this is it.

        • Truth says:

          84%? I find that hard to Believe.

          • LOL (original) says:

            84% Just on Sundays you know how it goes.

            LOL

          • ._./ says:

            53,499 people, or 86% of the population (which I suppose could have been true at the time of writing?)

            Sorry about that.

  14. Winnie says:

    30 tourists I will def take that, and if they litter we fine them, gotta maximise the tourisim dollar,lol. On the real though my 24th of May is gone, therefore I’ll have my own personal 24th of May on April 25 check me out and have a shot a black and a nice cold Elephant. I will be on Cedar Ave under the pink umbrella waiting for the runners to go by.

    • Watching! says:

      I wonder if this is part of the Faith Bases Tourism Program?

  15. The Rock says:

    forever virgins. they should be arrested for littering nonsense printed materials. do they have work permits as leafleters? they should hire bermudians to do that! i guess they are now in horseshoe sunbathing….

  16. M.O.G. says:

    “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. (Matthew 24:36 New International Version)
    Nuff Said!!!!

    • Blessed says:

      I agree, but one thing is certain, every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. I pitty those who mock Christ return. The 2nd coming may not be on May 21st but it surely will happen. Thanking God im saved. ~Blessed

  17. K says:

    Why wait to party the day after, May 21st is a Saturday!!

    I need one of those shirts – yeah, baby!

    • Monster says:

      may as well buy that shirt after this predicted end of the world. hell, either way, as with all post holiday retail, shirts will either be 50% off or free as the need for money will no longer exist…

  18. Souse says:

    Let me get this straight, even a ‘quirky’ preacher can get more “tourist” to BDA than the BDOT? Hmm.

  19. B-Linked says:

    I don’t believe anyone has the knowledge to determine exactly when the world is to end. Thanks for clearing that up M.O.G. Beware of false prophets!

  20. B Outerbridge says:

    Is this proof the faith based tourism marketing worked?

  21. Rockfish#2 says:

    This story provides comic relief from the heady stuff dominating the local news over the last few days.

  22. Chart says:

    LOL, do they have a work permit?

  23. kermit says:

    Is anyone considering the possibility that these wackos are planning a massive terrorist act on May 21? Think Jim Jones’s followers, only give them guns and tell them they’re “saving” people by killing them…

  24. Mad Prophet says:

    “SOME PEOPLE WOKE UP DEAD THIS MORNING, THANK GOD WE DIDN’T”

    Everyday can be your last, “TOMORROW IS PROMISED TO NO ONE”.

    “GIVE THANKS AND PRAISES TO THE MOST HIGH”

    • "Waking" dead says:

      I didn’t wake up dead this morning?!”

  25. Citizen Banned says:

    Live each day as if it was your last. One day you’ll be right.

  26. Born Again Bermudian says:

    Day one God create heaven and earth. Day two he said “let there be light”. That means all of that stuff he did on day one – he did it IN THE DARK!!!

    Amazing!

  27. No what the manual says:

    If the end of the world is May 21st – I’m canceling my trip. I’d prefer to be home in Bda.

  28. aald says:

    Oh man! This is gona ruin May 24th! How am I supposed to get my first dip in if there’s impending doom?
    Oh well. Nothing’s stopping me from a good old fashioned Heritage Day.

  29. Judge Long time ago! says:

    Well I sold my soul to the devil a few years ago for a huge favour, so I think I already know where Im going….Please let me know, when god decides to re-judge again, maybe i’ll might make that list. The list of people who deserve second changes…..

    • Itcouldhappen says:

      A second chance is already yours if you choose to take it. God is a God of second, third and fourth chances.

    • Blessed says:

      A forgiving God is he. Its never too late.

      • LOL (original) says:

        Yes but the problem is sincerity of the person wanting forgiveness. Small as it seems it would make all the difference.

        LOL

  30. Islander says:

    The kid talks like he doesn’t even believe it….what a load of sh*t…they using these kids i feel sorry for them..

    • Away says:

      They are using the kids, or are the kids using them for free trips??

      • hmmm says:

        Yeah, it is interesting how the leader is 89 years old. And these pamphleters are young adults/teens.

  31. Terry says:

    Not a soul of Mankind listens to me. I rid the Earth of Dinasours, Aliens and floods. I even printed the Bible so man could read, digest and think about mortality. Everything is falling apart but I will not let man devour each other as they did when I gave them fire and said “make toast, not roast”.

    I will inform you of the day that has been portrayed as the final calling. I alone will tell you by visual signs and the honking of horns and get out of my way because it’s all about…..

    (..there is a “toll”)…………………………………………

  32. FIN says:

    So you say the world is coming to an end……and you spend your last days handing out flyers? If you truly believe this, then why are you whack jobs wasting your time preaching to everyone when you could be spending your last days on Earth doing something exciting?

    By the way, thanks for giving us plenty of notice that the world is going to end in 40 days…..I have to give my landlord 60 days notice before I move out!

  33. New World Order says:

    Some doors have closed for some segments of society whilst some doors have opened for others. The world of white domination may be ending. The winds of change have had a profound impact all around the world. The inclusion of people who were traditionally excluded from opportunities which were previously the exclusive reserve for whites may indeed equate the end of the world for that previously privileged segment of society.

    • Common Sense says:

      Sounds like a “plantation” answer to me! I guess race is going to be an issue – even on the supposed day of judgement.

      • New World Order says:

        Why is it when you see white, you automatically think black, like that’s the only other race. Are you a product of the plantation you speak of? The fact remains that all races will be judged, and yes, that includes the ‘whites’.

    • Hudson says:

      Give me a break…

    • LOL (original) says:

      Yes the world bank leaders are now black someone might want to tell them that…………………………….

      LOL

      • New World Order says:

        Ask white America who’s controlling who…ever stop to think about the Chinese? BTW, who mentioned anything about black?

        • LOL (original) says:

          Some consider any not white as black case you did not know and the world banks still control the money on this planet everyone even the Chinese needs it.

          LOL

    • Let's Think About This... says:

      I don’t think whites would advertise the destruction of their world. It wouldn’t be smart because then everyone else would storm their offices/homes, and demand they give up their earthly possessions since they’re going to loose them anyway. And why is everything a racial issue?!

    • Watching! says:

      Well they did say if the PLP ever won an election it would be the end of the world! Must be close because the end of Bermuda as we know it is upon us! Lololololol what a clown and asinine statement! Oh well, sometimes I just love comments from people like New World Order. I guess you wrote this on your IPAD while driving your new car!

      • New World Order says:

        Funny you should say that…I was thinking the same about your response! LOL

  34. No One Knows -- Matthew 24:35 says:

    How is it that, after reading Matthew 24:35, these people are able to pinpoint an exact date on when Judgement Day will take place? Are they privy to the thoughts of God Himself and can otherwise bypass Jesus and His angels and come to a knowledge that is otherwise unknown? These theories simply continue to remain as bogus as the last ones, and even the ones to come. NO ONE KNOWS… NO ONE AT ALL!

  35. Terry says:

    It’s just bloody Ewart Brown playing games..

    Just another money making thing. Take the last few dollars from us, spend it and then …………Don’t forget…..call the 1-800# that I gave previously. And remember..’only you can prevent fire and doom’…( Smokey Beer, Genisis 1 Chapmen two verse 2011……………..

  36. Don't care what anyone says:

    I’d say those nice innocent boys need to go out and get drunk and get laid if its really the end of the world next month.

    Go out with a bang I’d say. Thats’ what I’m doing – just in case!!!!

  37. Sharlette says:

    Anybody that believes in a personal god such as the Abrahamic god of the bible can be led to believe any rubbish that is printed by some ‘tard calling themself a prophet. religion is a wonderful tool to control people and make them afraid. it is truly frustrating when people see the lunacy in this garbage but don’t see the lunacy in telling my 3 year old child that there’s some invisible man in the sky who watches over and controls everything. It is pure nonsense and needs to be taken out of schools and left up to the individual, when will people learn that it just perpetuates the divide that nurtures the ills of the society that we live in.

    • Terry says:

      Your hell awaits you. Did you tell your 3 year old or did they knock on your door.

      Yah all muss be a tea party member. Teas on me……………time and place to be set. I’ll give you a warning sign…………………………….bawahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

    • Away says:

      Go Sharlette!!!

      • Away says:

        It’s funny how you expose your views and Christians tell you to go to hell…just goes to show what a faux religion and spirituality really is…They only love you when its convenient to them…you go against them and they invoke fear of their vengeful, jealous, murderous, evil god, then if you accept they put him in sheep’s clothing and call him Jesus…what a laugh

    • LOL (original) says:

      when will people learn that it just perpetuates the divide that nurtures the ills of the society that we live in.

      Care to elaborate on that.

      LOL

    The Bermuda Dept of Tourism needs to seriously rethink it’s act…

    this guy got 30 tourists to Bermuda!!!

  41. Where can I get one of those T-Shirts?

    • Terry says:

      Good one Dennis…………….And please don’t come back with “I told you so”. Let it go my man…………..

      • Seriously, I checked the net and they don’t seem to be sold anywhere. One of those shirts could be quite useful come Oct.

  42. Malachi says:

    That’s good news!!

    ……at the end of the this month I won’t be paying my mortgage; BELCO; TELCO, or anybody else for that matter.

    I finally will have the cash for that long needed vacation – April 30th to May 20th (I would like to spend my last hours at home)

  43. PAS says:

    Here’s my entry for the new Bermuda tourism slogan contest:
    “I think the world is ending. I’m going to Bermuda!”

    • Common Sense says:

      PAS wins the “best comment so far” award.

    • Double Like! says:

      OMG That’s the best comments EVER!!! I actually Bermuda Tourism should use that!

    • Hudson says:

      nice…!

  44. Bermudian says:

    Not only was he wrong about the first date, which everyone knew wasn’t true, you see how he twists his words so that he doesn’t lose any followers? It’s a croc of S$%&….

    Religion is the root of all evil. More than Money.

  45. sandgrownan says:

    My wife is pissed, that’s our wedding anniversary and I asked if I didn’t have to buy flowers now.

  46. Don't care what anyone says:

    30 faith based tourists. This outdoes the 20 or so that Andre got paid $400K to bring here. We should have an end of the world every year!!!

  47. blah. says:

    The Bible says No man knows the day nor the hour of God’s return (Matthew 24:36). This message that these vistors are telling totally goes against the word of God…im just saying. Why even entertain this. Now I do believe that God is coming again, but NO man will know the exact date…

    well that will be the only to put the PLP out of its misery.

  50. Max says:

    Opinions are like arm pits…they stink far too soon. That’s why we have higher learning citadels called college so as to be disciplined enough to search out a matter. So what proof do any of you present that disputes the Bible? Oh yeah, evolution. Now that is religion for modern man or ape man of today. Not one of you sound like you even investigated the matter. So ominous is this for any of us I suppose I understand the reluctance but even in court, ignorance is no excuse. Be ignorant or be wise..in your own eyes. You may be one of the vast billions to watch it happen. It is written the kings and merchants of Babylon will watch the falling of her. Now that is high tech stuff. To watch your own world destroyed before your very eyes. Thanks TV, Satellite, internet. Or like all left behind to face death in such a earthquake that never was such a earthquake it will move islands out of their place. I think you all know it’s going to happen and try desperately to convince your own heart and others so that it can be denied. God will let you do that. But if you humble your self it may be God will have mercy. I pray the latter is what happens.

      To echo sentiments expressed earlier: if you are SO convinced that the world will end on May 20th, 2011 – PROVE to us how serious you are by signing over all your worldly possessions effective May 20th. Better still, have Harold Camping do the same.

      Walk the talk and you’ll make believers of us all.

      I can’t tell if you’re joking.

    • Peter Pan says:

      Ah yes – the old “You haven’t proved God doesn’t exist so he must exist”. Santa, Easter Bunny, Peter Pan too. Peter Pan is my favourite – he lives on an island full of pirates and thieves and where nothing is the same as in the normal parts of the world. Oh I forgot, that island is Bermuda, and thats my life.

  51. Makes sense! says:

    An end of days party on horseshoe would be awesome !

  52. Don't care what anyone says:

    I think we should “Party Like Its 1999″. PLP had only just begun its quest to totally ruin Bermuda. Ewart wasn’t even in the wings. Good days.

  53. Random 16yr old girl says:

    Nicole- you the dumb one…….May 21 is the right date but it is 2012.like the chinese calender says………and how can you people think this is true…….the scriptures out of the bible are right but contradictory…1st that there is only Heaven and earth and nothing else exists[what about in other scriptures that talk about hell and the devil]…….2nd it says that the bible has not been altered, but yet the bible was written by man and he can portray it how he feels necessary and could be leading you idiots on……and the bible has been altered for the benefit of man to be able to understand it better and translated from Hebrew and Greek……lastly what happen to god crating the earth and being the first one here [not in man form like adam and eve] but BC is before Christ which means he wasn’t the first here….so if thats a lie due to scientific evidence what makes you think that the rest of the book ank

    • Islander says:

      UM BC is before Christ not Before God….get it right..young one

    • LOL (original) says:

      Umm I don’t follow your thought patter on this have you ever read the bible and comprehended what you read. One question to all you science folks not that I have a problem with an art that trys to see how God did things and how he made them work, but did it ever occur to you that in the science lab expariments must be done under certin conditions and that if those conditions are not met the resault of the expariment become inconclusive as they are conducted to prove or disprove a hypothisis? Imagine the complex being that you are. I’m not trying to convert you rather I would like to see people digging deeper that just what they heard some else say or due to personal events shape what they think thing are and are not. Take the plung its the only scientific thing to do after all.

      LOL

    • ._./ says:

      Given that 2020 is the year of the Rat on the Chinese calendar, I sincerely doubt that they believe the world is going to end some eight years prior.

      Try the Mayans, dear.

      They’re on a completely different continent – on the other side of the world.

    Why did we let them into our country? i cant stand illogical people preaching fear and false hopes to the ears of millions, why not focus our attention to men; men killing men, world hunger, etc…

    LMAWO @ comments! Bermudians were the last people they needed to come at with all that. What got my attention was the fact that this guy is making MILLIONS of dollars off of donations??? MMM I SMELL SOMETHING…U SMELL IT? This is why I am so skeptical about putting money in for charities, mainly off island…you just do not know what’s really going on with your funds. New World Order and Random 16 you raised some good points!! Here we go ya’ll…false prophets!

  56. Truth says:

    Your Basing your facts off of a book that was written thousands of years ago…On top of this your taking random dates from the bible, applying a simple mathematic function and producing another random date you for some reason find symbolic and meaningful…

    Think about how smart the average person is in this world…now think that half of them are dumber than that person….You my friends unfortunately fall into the lower half of this category.

    Stop wasting your time and money and stop this NOW…unless you want to wait till Oct 2011 and feel like a bigger idiot.

  63. Chris Gibbons says:

    Not sure why you and the other Bermuda media give these idiots the time of day. They are a picture caption at best. They would not warrant a mention in the mainstream media of any other country. As for the end of the world? I’m already busy enough as it is on May 21 …

    • bernews says:

      Actually, we got the background information on them from stories done by mainstream media in other countries, couple of links in article to US and UK reports. There was no shortage to choose from, CNN, Daily Mail, Associated Press, USA Today, Huffpo etc.

      • Bri says:

        Its been all over the media, just hit Bermuda yesterday!

      • Rockfish#2 says:

        Bernews,
        As you probably know, the three most controversial subjects are:
        Religion—-Politics—-Sex. So much so that many organizations have prevented official discussion on them.

        However, you have prompted discussions on two out of three, now what??
        BTW, most comments are hilarious! Good stuff!

  64. Bri says:

    This is just the comic relief this island needs right now with all the pack that’s been going on in the recent!

    This man Harold Camping is a false prophet. And is making MILLIONS of dollars! SMDH! Took my mind back with the whole ‘Jim Jones’ story. Why is it the most stupid of people have a huge following. Just something that always concerned me.

    Nonetheless, I am getting HUGE crack up at this story along with the comments posted. Thanks for the chuckle my Bermudians!

    Check ya at the May 24th parade!

    HA!!

  65. Speakin it says:

    MARK 13: 31-33 “Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.”

  66. will says:

    I think anyone church preaching the inevitable end of the world in the next year or so should, after the day of ‘reckoning’, shut its doors and burn itself to the ground because it never happened and therefore prevent them from preaching false infromation and religious crap to anyone else again. Religion is the opiate of the masses, selling false hopes and information to those who are open to hear it for a ton of money and sadistic control over many. (the Pope, Hitler, Charles Manson, etc…..)

    • LOL (original) says:

      Muhammad might as well throw in all religions which includes science.

      LOL

  67. Thanks Guys says:

    OMGosh! thanks my fellow Bermudians! you have really given me the laugh I needed with your true Bermudian humor! I will definitely see you all 24th of May on Front Street…cup of Swizzle and all!

  68. Terry says:

  69. Grubal Muruch says:

    “ODE TO HAROLD CAMPING”
    THE MADMAN HAS DECRIED, THE END OF PLANET EARTH AND ALL IT’S INHABITANTS. HE HAS SORTED OUT THE HIDDEN MYSTERIOUS OF OLD. HE HAS MADE HASTE TO WARN THE POPULACE OF IMPENDING DOOM AND DESTRUCTION.

    HE HAS CHOSEN WHO WILL STAY AND WHO WILL GO. HE SEES THAT WHICH EXISTS NOT, AND CREATES WITHIN, CRAZED PERCEPTIONS THAT RUN AMOUK, IN A MIND FILLED WITH DELUSION AND CARNAL VENGEANCE.

    HE RELISHES THE THOUGHTS OF A DEPRAVED COUNRTYSIDE, LAID TO WASTE WITH THE CORPSES OF TENS OF MILLIONS, WHO CHOOSE NOT TO PARTAKE OF HIS MADNESS.

    HE TRADED HIS ONCE SOLID DOCTRINES FOR FANCIFUL IMAGININGS AND INTELLECTUALLY ABSURD RANTINGS. HENCEFORTH HE BEGAN TO SERVE THE ENEMY OF MANKIND. NOW LOST IN HIS DELUSION, UNABLE TO DISTINGUISH LIGHT FROM DARKNESS, HE INDOCTRINATES THOSE WHO FOLLOW HIM INTO THE NETHERWORLD.

    HIS FOLLOWERS, EVER MESMERIZED, BY HIS DRONING INFERENCES AND INSPIRED BY HIS PSEUDO SPIRITUAL INSIGHT, ARE HELD CAPTIVE, TRUSTING IN EVERY TWISTED WORD. THEY ARE WILLING TO FOLLOW THIS MAN INTO AN ETERNALLY DARKENED PLACE, WHILE DENYING IT EXISTS, TO THEIR FOLLY.

    THIS MAN AND HIS MINIONS HAVE TRADED THEIR ETERNAL SOULS FOR A SET OF LIES THAT PRECIDE OUT OF THE DEEPEST PIT OF HELL. THEY HAVE IGNORED AND REJECTED THE TRUE GOD OF THE UNIVERSE AND REPLACED HIM WITH A HERETICAL SET OF DAMNING DOCTRINES.

    THEY HAVE REMOVED THE CROSS-OF CHRIST, CALLING IT A DEMONSTRATION. THEY HAVE TAKEN AWAY THE “WHITE THRONE JUDGEMENT.” THEY HAVE HIDDEN THE ETERNAL JUDGEMENT AND CALLED IT ANNIHILATION.

    THEY HAVE IMAGINED CHRIST DIED A MYSTERIOUS DEATH BEFORE THE, “FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD,” HAVING THE ABSENCE OF A MORTAL BODY, AND BEING IN ITS HEAVENLY STATE. THEY DEFY LOGIC AND CLING TO THEIR IRRATIONAL NOTIONS AND WOULD RATHER BELIEVE THE LIE THAN ACCEPT THE TRUTH… (THEY CONTINUE TO CALL GOOD EVIL AND EVIL GOOD)

    Lord of lords Bob the Builder and I refuse to let the world end until St. Georges loses Cupmatch by 8 wickets and then Tupac can come out of hiding and perform his song “Till the end of time”! Fat will be sexy, ugly will be pretty, dogs will love cats, the cats will love the fishes and then everyone from the east to the west side of Bermuda will live in peace and harmony for 24 hours and party until the sun sets for the last time. Please withdraw all the money you have from your bank accounts and place it the large plastic bins located at the entrance to my yard as we will need this to help replenish the bar. Please don’t forget to leave a generous tip for me your bartender so I can make it rain one last time.
