Man is confused and can't explain why the world didn't end




This is an older video from 2011 that I recently watched.
He sincerely believed that the world was coming to an end and yet he was praying for mercy, praying for a quick painless death. It almost sounded like he was suicidal, as if he had lost all hope in life and didn't want to live anymore. Alternatively he wasn't too concerned with the idea that the rest of the world would be dying too.

He wasn't praying for continued life on earth or praying for god to NOT destroy the earth. He was ok with all the death as long as it was merciful and he got a new heavenly body.

Somehow he thought there could be mercy from a being who was destroying all life on earth and the only way this being would have this mercy is if he prayed for it.

When it all didn't happen, he was in shock, confused.
All his expectations dashed

Insanity - doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results

Oh he did! Too funny. Just thought it was sad when I saw him eating all alone.

1. Where in the scriptures do people discover the supposed exact date of judgement day? How are they claiming to know when specifically it will happen?

2. I wonder what conclusions this man, and others like him, draw when they are proved wrong?

Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, just as it is the spirit of a spiritless situation. The abolition of religion as the illusory happiness of the people is required for their real happiness.

-Karl Marx

This is what happens when you are religiously indoctrinated.

brief history, you see May 21st 2011 was supposed to be the rapture predicted by Harold Camping using verses in the bible. He's in charge of Family Radio, a christian radio station. In his prediction every one of the faithful will be raptured to heaven leaving the rest behind and then a huge earthquake, the entire world in fact. To prepare for this Harold Camping and his followers spread the message with billboards, and demonstrations donating their entire life savings to his ministry to fund it. (hey who needs money for the end of the world) So..when the rapture didn't happen Harold Camping said it was a "spiritual rapture" so it wasn't an earthquake. Yeah.. some crazy stuff I really don't know what happened to all those people.

He's one of those people that actually take "live every day like your last" to heart. Depressing though to see how far people will drop when their beliefs stray them this way.
