The May 21st Doomsday Theory

I thought it important to provide some information about this ridiculous theory that the world will end on May 21. Throughout this century (and I'm sure many before) some preachers have predicted the World's End, over and over and over. The current false prophet -Harold Camping, is no different. 
  In fact, he already predicted the end of the world in 1994. Like the others, he's doing it for attention, just like the preacher in Florida who burned holy books to get attention. They need attention, but the type of attention they need is in the form of psychological help! 
  Doesn't the Bible say that "False Prophets should be stoned to death?" Well, how come this guy is still around and making more stupid predictions? SIGH.
FROM USA TODAY:  FAQ about May 21st Doomsday, Judgment Day and Harold Camping

What will (supposedly) happen on May 21?
Christian radio host Harold Camping says that a rapture will take place on May 21.
What is a rapture?
A rapture is the idea that believers will be taken up to heaven. Camping's followers suggest that about 200 million people will be raptured.
Will the world end immediately?
Not according to Camping. He says that the world will end on October 21.
Who is Harold Camping?
Camping, 89, is president of the Family Radio Christian network who previously claimed that the world would end in 1994.
Why May 21?
Camping uses a combination of dates and numbers to suggest May 21 is the correct day.
Do other Christians believe the same idea?
Most Christian leaders do not embrace Camping's predictions, however, some have taken fairly dramatic measures. One man spent his savings on advertisements in New York and a woman dropped out of medical school before she ran out of savings.  (IN MY OPINION, THESE PEOPLE ARE FOOLS).

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
