May 21, 2011[edit]

This guy better be wrong. I've got a bunch of summer blockbusters I want to catch this year. Not to mention a nice vacation I've been planning since last August. A bunch of fire and brimstone and damnation would really put a damper on those things. --Edgerunner76Save me Tsisnaajini! 16:38, 13 May 2011 (UTC)

Looks like you're pretty screwed. Maybe he, Jack Van Impe, and the Mayans can have a battle royale to see who is right. Aboriginal Noise Oh, what a lovely tea party! 16:42, 13 May 2011 (UTC)
I'll be listening to this guy on May 22. sPaRkYGodspeed! 17:21, 13 May 2011 (UTC)

Yet another occasion when the universe ended and nobody noticed.

The reason why it didn't happen - Samoa decided to cross the dateline, thus creating a contradiction in the space-time continuum which means that everything has to be reset.

Court cases[edit]

So one of HC's followers sues 'Atheist who took money for looking after follower's pets come the Rapture' for their money back. What would the result be (assuming the rapture does not occur in the interval)?

And - it is the Atheists in question who get raptured/ (talk) 17:46, 23 May 2011 (UTC)

The sales of Halloween stuff might well be an indicator of general belief in the claims made. (talk) 17:12, 24 May 2011 (UTC)

Picture gone from Commons, but...[edit]

...yay how great it would be to use this picture. (Linked from here.) But then there's that nasty copyright... -- Sunny256| 16:15, 1 June 2011 (UTC)

Bad javascript programming!?[edit]

"After the date passed, it started displaying a negative number for the day(s) left due to the timer using bad JavaScript programming, but the timer has since been replaced. It has since been replace AGAIN to reflect the new Oct 21 'Rapture'."

Hey! That hurts!

I knew about the potential for it to go negative, but I didn't bother adding the code because on the day it passed, we actually switched the site to something that threw an image when the counter hit zero.— Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs

Yeah, you wouldn't want to be caught unprepared.--ADtalkModerator 07:36, 22 August 2011 (UTC)
