The World didn’t end
yesterday. It hadn’t ended by evening today either. I never did figure out how earthquakes were going to shake the four corners of the globe at the same time. Think about it – none of us are “Flat Earthers” and a sphere doesn’t have corners. Looking at your average map – none of the continents come close to having corners. Perhaps he is so old that he believes that the corners on the physical map are real?
If you remember 89 year old Harold Camping (and there is no reason why you should) from 1994 – he was predicted the end of the world before.
1994 was a year of changes – at least for those of us in the US military stationed in Germany. Significant turmoil ensued as the draw down of forces (the Cold War bonus) resulted in the closure of bases Bremerhaven, Nuernburg, Berlin, Frankfurt, Augsburg, Muenchen. I was the commander of clinics for Heidelberg Meddac. What this amounted to was increasing the number of clinics for which I was responsible from 4 to 10, and then decreasing by one as we closed out Karlsruhe. Just because I didn’t have enough else to do – there was Frankfurt Hospital (the old 97th General) to close.
The world didn’t end. In fact, I was so busy that I would not have noticed the world ending between work and the kids and DH and dog.
Now – there have been numerous rumors of world ending. What I know is that it didn’t end in 1994, it didn’t end on the 30th of April or 21th of May. Which leads me to believe that the Apocalypse won’t happen on the 21st of October either.
I am just trying to decide if it would be better to be on sea or land when his next prediction doesn’t come true.
