Judgement Day bumped up from Dec 21, 2012 to May 21, 2011​



RALEIGH, N.C. — If there had been time, Marie Exley would have liked to start a family. Instead, the 32-year-old Army veteran has less than six months left, which she'll spend spreading a stark warning: Judgment Day is almost here.


Exley is part of a movement of Christians loosely organized by radio broadcasts and websites, independent of churches and convinced by their reading of the Bible that the end of the world will begin on May 21, 2011.

To get the word out, they're using billboards and bus stop benches, traveling caravans of RVs and volunteers passing out pamphlets on street corners. Cities from Bridgeport, Conn., to Little Rock, Ark., now have billboards with the ominous message, and mission groups are traveling in countries from Latin America to Africa to spread the news outside the U.S.

"A lot of people might think, 'The end's coming, let's go party,'" said Exley, a veteran of two deployments in Iraq. "But we're commanded by God to warn people. I wish I could just be like everybody else, but it's so much better to know that when the end comes, you'll be safe."

In August, Exley left her home in Colorado Springs, Colo., to work with Oakland, Calif.-based Family Radio Worldwide, the independent Christian ministry whose leader, Harold Camping, has calculated the May 21 date based on his reading of the Bible.

She is organizing traveling columns of RVs carrying the message from city to city, a logistics challenge that her military experience has helped solve. The vehicles are scheduled to be in five North Carolina cities between now and the second week of January, but Exley will shortly be gone: overseas, where she hopes to eventually make it back to Iraq.

"I don't really have plans to come back," she said. "Time is short."

It wouldn't be New Year's if somebody weren't predicting the end of the world.

So um, whenever people predict this crap, why exactly do they feel the need to broadcast it anyway? It's like, 'Ok, world's ending, gotcha - what exactly do you want us to do about it?'. Fuck getting into heaven, if the planet's about to explode I'm going to go and tear shit up just before it happens.

Hope these people don't mass suicide like other Doomsday cults.

I mean let's say there is an afterlife where you're judged. They'd be pretty embarrassed to go before the powers that be and say they killed themselves because of lack of reading comprehension.

convinced by their reading of the Bible...
That line right there pretty much sums up the fact that these people are morons. Do they realize how many people in the past have tried to figure out the end of the world from the Bible? And do they realize that every single one of them has gotten it wrong?

Or a lack of common sense...but I guess that goes with the territory.

I like how she didn't adequately explain how she came to the conclusion through the bible that the world will end on 2011

I would love to see their reactions when they wake up on May 22nd.

I seriously have no idea how they would react after putting 5 months and all your faith into one event. My guess is they'd lose their faith and become depressed alcoholics, because I can't even imagine how utterly stupid they are going to feel.

Or maybe they'll just say God changed his mind.
