If the World is going to end on Saturday then why did I bother paying my Mastercard bill?
By now, you've probably heard of the religious group that's predicting the end of the world starts this weekend. Harold Camping and his devoted followers claim a massive earthquake will mark the second coming of Jesus, or so-called Judgment Day on Saturday, May 21.
Camping claims that at 6 p.m. on Saturday, May 21, the ground will quake, graves will open and many of the dead will ascend to heaven. Two hundred million of the 'saved' -- dead or alive -- will float up. Those left behind will be doomed to live among blood, destruction and disease for five months before God annihilates the Earth on Oct. 21.
I was planning on seeing a movie on Saturday night. Just in case Camping is right, I'm going to change my plans and catch a movie in the afternoon.
