"Rapture Party" Planned for May 21

Time to party with the Whore of Bablyon
On May 21, fans of American hip hop music will have a chance to celebrate the birthday of the late Christopher George Latore Wallace, popularly known as Biggie Smalls. But those who don't like rap need not feel left out, because we all have a reason almost as momentous to throw a party -- the end of the world.

Sorry if we're the ones breaking the news to you, but life as we know it will cease 16 days from now. According to Harold Camping, president of Oakland-based Family Radio, May 21 is Judgment Day. The saved shall be gathered up in the Rapture, the graves shall offer up their dead, and our former governor will reappear, a red glow in his eyes, intoning, "Come with me if you want to live."

So Camping informed SF Weekly managing editor Alan Scherstuhl in a recent interview. Applying some form of nonsensical mathematics to the Bible -- "If we substitute 1,000 years for each of the seven days, 2011 is exactly 7,000 years from the Flood," he told Scherstuhl -- Camping has arrived at May 21 as the day the world will end, and has bought large amounts of public advertising space to warn Bay Area residents of their impending demise.

If you're as perturbed by all this as we are, you'll probably want to quaff a few glasses of amber-tinted liquor to steel yourself for all those walking corpses, and perhaps work up the courage to hit on the Whore of Babylon when she arrives riding her seven-headed monster thing. Well, don't worry -- the nonprofit American Atheists has got you covered.

The group is throwing four "rapture parties" on May 21 and 22 at locations across the country, including one on Camping's home turf in Oakland. Featuring various atheist speakers, the two-day party at the Oakland Masonic Temple is dedicated to "2000 years of 'Any Day Now,'" as the group proclaims.

Go ahead. The end is nigh. Dance like nobody's watching.

So, that's THIS Saturday? Ummm... Is that midnight?, Pacific time or Eastern, Greenwich, midnight that morning, or midnight on Sunday morning, I'm so confused!! And what an irony that the kooks that believe this will be deeply disappointed when they don't DIE!!! As if... Do they really think that they would live up to the standards of their almighty buddy? I can't wrap my brain around this slice of crazy, but good luck, I hope your Judgement goes well!!!

You better read the bible again. There is no such thing as a rapture. Not May 21 or anytime. I can't believe there are so many decieved people in this world. Just because a "mans" book series comes out a" novel", people think it is true. Read Gods word not mans books. All I can say is STUPID

I sure do hope it happens Saturday cause I'd hate to be one of those people constantly spouting off about the end of days. I guess one day they will be right only it won't be quite as nice for them as they'd like. It will just end and we'll all suffer up to it together in mass hysteria. People will create and believe the craziest things won't they?

The rupture will be 84 weeks from today on December 20, 2012, that is, a day before the start of the Day of Tribulation on 12/21/2012. You still have 588 days to go. It was 600 days, the day Osama was killed on May 1st, 2011. On April 29, 2009, Obama joked during his 100th day in Office that his next 100 days will be done in 72 days and in the 73rd day, he will rest. Sure enough, July 10, 2009, he was blessed by the Pope and 1260 days later, it will be 12/21/2012.

First rule of bible study, let the bible interpret the bible, never listen to a little here and a little there from man.  There is no rapture period, the scripture that says we will meet with Jesus up in the clouds does not prove or say rapture, there is nothing at all in the bible that says people will be sucked up off the ground in to heaven, in fact no one will go to heaven, it says mans reward is eternal life on Earth, which will be made over in to a tropical paradise all flesh will be converted in to spirit body, that is how you live forever.  People really need to blow the dust off there bible and truly read it..

Sorry to be the party pooper, but there is no Rapture this month ! The signs are not yet all here; most are but not all. The antiChrist has to announce himself, this will be the last event before the Rapture so that the loyal in Christ will be spared from the terrible events to follow. Some say that it is obama, and others say he is too stupid to be the devil himself, but this could a plot to appear dumb, "Dumb like a Fox" !!!

Right.  If Saturday is the day, Obama better get on over to the Jerusalem and get into the temple and announce himself.  Then, I might buy the Saturday plan.
