  1. May 21, 2011 - 6pm - It all ends?


    As most things in my life are, curiosity was sparked by a billboard on the drive to work. It said that the world will end on May 21, 2011. I'm thinkin "HOLY CRAP...HITS THE FAN, BATMAN!!!" And as with most things that involve religion (me being an atheist and whatnot), I simply have my wife look it up (quite the believer...don't ask how our relationship works).

    Apparently there's some guy out there who did some calculations based on the good book. He figured out that the flood happened 7,000-some years ago, and that according to Rapture theory, we're due for another one. He says that this time, it's death by fire. (My mind entered Beavis-mode at this point and said FIRE!!! )

    Reading on, and me paraphrasing a good bit, May 21 - more precisely at 6pm, though I don't know if that's EST, Mountain Time, or Papua New Guinea Time - it will all begin. It'll all end on October 21, so those of us left behind will have till then to do our final repent and hope to be 'saved'. In the meantime, Rapture theory says that the dead will rise from the graves. ALL of the dead. And dang, that's a whole lotta dead. Those who accepted Jesus will be instantly scooped up, while those who did not will walk the Earth.

    Let me repeat that... THE DEAD WILL WALK THE EARTH. At this point, my brain went haywire. It's the frickin ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE!!!! Hordes upon hordes of undead non-Christian (or just crappy christian) zombies will infest the earth for 5 whole months.

    So for all of us who haven't accepted Christ, or maybe did it the wrong way or something, we'll be left to defend what little time and happiness we have left by fighting off billions of animated corpses... all while fending off hell on earth, convincing ourselves to accept what's going on, ask for forgiveness and hope it's not too late. Those who do get a ticket upward. Those who don't get to burn. Kinda harsh, but eh... depends on your perspective and beliefs.

    Once again, I don't subscribe to this, but I have always found doom and gloom to be fascinating, if for nothing else but that it's something different from the usual grind. If you have thoughts, weigh in. I don't mean for this to a religious debate, so please do not get into that.

    Discuss.

  2. Well then... I will be the first to say... Hear Hear to becoming dead walking flesh considering I am a pretty crappy Christian.

    Lets just hope some of the good **** I have done can somehow outweigh the bad. Might even pick up a new bible that isn't illustrated for kids!

    I hear ya! My house is full of Bibles of all sorts. My wife is quite religious, or I should say, faithful. She doesn't prescribe to a particular faith, per se, other than Christianity and Judaism. She's versed, and eventhough I am a non-believer, so am I. I can debate pretty well with most Christians out there and many are convinced that I am a "man of God", so to speak. Nope, I just have knowledge, that's all. I've always held firm that religion is not a bad thing. It gives people hope and strength, and that can be a VERY good thing. I just believe in many different things, most of which can be seen with my own eyes and interpreted differently. To each their own.

    Still... even if this were to become reality, I have to say that I'd be willing to stick around a bit to see the crap hit the fan. I'm not one to NOT believe; it just takes me a bit of convincing first. I'm an open person.

    And fortunately, we have a lot of zombie resources like AnabolicMinds and cracked.com to aid us in our preparations.

    I am personally Catholic, but I also garner your same viewpoint. There are many out there that are very fervent to argue against religion because they do not hold the same viewpoint. Then I think to myself.... why? What is someones point to try to poke holes in someone elses belief system? I didnt know church on sunday really hurt people that much that they try to make a mockery of others beliefs.

    But I guess that is the live and let live in me.

    By the by.. just bought me a Browning 30ot6 X-Bolt stalker with a leapold scope... now normally I would use this for some whitetail knock downs and possibly future elk hunts, but I am not opposed to adding a bayonet and flash suppressor for some brain matter splatter considering I can keep groupings within an inch from 200 yards with it!

  11. I don't have many guns. I don't have a whole lotta ammo. But, I do have a motorcycle covered in spikes, I'm really good with MacGuyverin' stuff, and I'm a better friend than enemy. I've also seen every episode of Man vs Wild. I think I might have a chance.

    If you have an AR15 and don't have a full auto receiver for it, may want to look into this

    although I dunno, is it really that valuable for a zombie apocalypse? you need accuracy, not necessarily volume

    Has it not also been said that the Holy Trinity - The Father, The Son, and the Holy Ghost/Spirit - are all the same "being"?

    Eh, we're all gonna die at some point anyway. If it just so happens that on May 21 at 6pm I get hit by a coal truck doing 90 on the highway while riding my bike, I won't know the difference anyway. Atleast I'll go out with a BANG, and that is all I could ever want!

    Ok, that was a bit uncalled for, my friend. Let's keep this really really religious free, from the perspective of hate. I don't that at all here, and the mods certainly do not. This wasn't intended to be a "my god's better than your god" thing, only a discussion of sorts and potential parody.

    However, if you ask me which established religion I like best, I sorta have a thing for Taoism.

    I say we form a group and we bunker down over here, there's a fruit tree every few paces and plenty of goats. A person can live in the mountains easy. I need ppl with guns, the only guns I shoot have paint in them and my most proficient weapon is a machete, that while good for close encounter emergencies wouldn't be logical as a main offensive weapon.

    Considering your heart is so full of hatred, seems to me you aren't exactly following Christ's teachings. So much for love thy neighbor huh? Only follow the 10 commandments when convenient?

  22. Ya know what religion I absolutely can not stand? Bees. I really really hate bees.

    I can never get them straight... are those the ones that are often all black and can sting multiple times? If so... FAWK THAT!! I got HAMMERED last summer by one while riding. Bounced off my helmet, slid down my vest and SLAMMED me right in the sternum. It felt like I got whacked with Thor's hammer, except on FIRE!!! Pulled over, untucked my shirt and flung it out, stamped it to death. Dad's allergic, and all my family was 7 miles away (where I was headed), so needless to say that ride was the calmest 2-wheeled commute I've EVER had. Fortunately, I'm not allergic to 'em... But still.. F U WASPS!!!!

  26. Tim, great post and makes me laugh....as some of the items I can relate to.

    I look at it this way...at any given moment, a piece of plaque that's been just hanging on to my inter most important valve... decides that today is the day it wants to take a ride on the BB12 system......

    Lights out....everything fades to black.

    I agree. Nobody but God/Jesus will know. That is why I never take billboards or anyone that thinks they can predict these things seriously.

    They are fun to talk about.

    Jesus, is my facebook friend, at least that's what he told me. And he wouldn't lie because number one that's a sin, and number two, no one lies on the interweb. If there is any hot girls in this thread, I'm 6"5 225lbs of rock solid muscle, with 5% body fat. I'm also a doctor. Again, no one lies on the intertube, plus Jesus would be pissed.

    I take Jesus pretty serious so perhaps that is why I don't understand.

    This whole thing just got awkward, so hmmm first let me just say my bad and secondly, not to be a tattle tale or anything, so I won't say anyone's name (Easy) also, ahh never mind, I'm just going to stop talking now.

    haha!

    I wasn't upset or anything. I just really didn't understand. No reason to say 'my bad'. I respect that everyone has different beliefs. I was in no way starting a holy war.

    I appreciate the respect. It just wasn't necessary.
