“(Harold)Camping, 88, has scrutinized the Bible for almost 70 years and says he has developed a mathematical system to interpret prophecies hidden within the Good Book. One night a few years ago, Camping, a civil engineer by trade, crunched the numbers and was stunned at what he’d found: The world will end May 21, 2011.”

This clearly indicates an extensive level of brainwashing of the Human Being through Religion. Wherein the Human becomes completely obsessed and possessed to compulsively study the bible and find any hints as to when and where some great event will take place, so that they know that if they just follow the rules, they can be certain that they will ascend into heaven apparently, at such time said ‘great event’ would take place.
The obvious neglect of life, neglect of what is in fact RELEVANT, when looking at such a use of one’s time on Earth, seen in the fact that this person, a Civil Engineer, spent almost 70 YEARS trying to work out when the rapture is – applying all his math skills to try and predict when the end of the world will occur — and meanwhile, since everything is ‘in god’s hands’, it never occurred to him that he could have been applying himself within investigating a real solution to the problems in this world, based on the actual words of Jesus. ‘Do unto another as you would have them do unto you’. ‘Love thy neighbor as yourself’. That is to CONSIDER OTHERS and what is Best for All others AS yourself — obviously if we all lived in such a way, we would set everything up here on Earth to best support us all to live comfortably in essence in Heaven on Earth, honoring each other as per the Suggestion of Jesus.
Instead, Religion exists within the absolute absurdity of dedicating one’s entire lifetime to waiting for death, and following the ‘rules’ of the bible, in fear of going to hell, possessed by the desire to get into heaven. And it is obviously all based on beLIEf. Whereas, to take responsibility for our world and apply our skills to working out a solution to the current way of life on Earth, that would eliminate such unacceptable atrocities such as starvation, poverty, animal abuse, the abuse of nature, lack of education, child abuse and neglect, prostitution and child sex slavery, child labor, greed, war – and the list goes on.
It is clear that anyone currently biding their time, waiting to be swept up into god’s ‘waiting arms’ on ‘judgment day’ has been completely brainwashed by a belief system based entirely on spitefulness as one disregard Life in favor of ones fear based desire to get into heaven.
