I'm waiting with bated breath to see what date the loonies latch on to next.

That's funny, I was going to ask when the next one was.   :P

Quote
2013, May 19
 
Ronald Weinland
 
Ronald Weinland's revised prediction of Jesus Christ's return following his failed 2011 and 2012 predictions.

 


21st century
 
St Malachy
 
St Malachy is said to have predicted in 1143 that there would only be 112 more Popes before the end of the world. Pope Benedict XVI is the 111th. The prophecy states the last pope will be named Peter of Rome.

 


20182028

 
F. Kenton Beshore
 
Beshore bases his prediction on Hal Lindsey's failed 1988 prediction that Jesus would return within one biblical generation of the founding of Israel in 1948. Lindsey stated a biblical generation was 40 years. Beshore argues that Lindsey's prediction was correct, but that his definition of a biblical generation was incorrect, which is actually 7080 years, placing the Second Coming of Jesus between 2018 and 2028.

 


20202037
 
Jeane Dixon
 
This psychic claimed that the Armageddon would take place in 2020 and Jesus would return to defeat the unholy Trinity of the Antichrist, Satan and the False prophet between 2020 and 2037. Dixon previously predicted the world would end on February 4, 1962.

 


2129
 
Said Nurs
 
According to abjad interpretation of a hadith, this Sunni Muslim theologian who wrote the Risale-i Nur Collection, a body of Qur'anic commentary exceeding six thousand pages, which expected the end in 2129.

 


2240
 

Talmud, Orthodox Judaism
 
According to an opinion on the Talmud in mainstream Orthodox Judaism, the Messiah should come within 6000 years from the creation of Adam, and the world could possibly be destroyed 1000 years later. This would put the beginning of the period of desolation in the year 2240 A.D. and the end of the period of desolation in the year 3240 A.D.

 


2280
 
Rashad Khalifa
 
According to Rashad Khalifa's research on the Quran Code, the world will end in this year.

 


c. 500,000,000
 
James Kasting
 
The level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere will drop, making Earth uninhabitable.

 


c. 5,000,000,000
 
Various scientists
 
The end of our Sun's current phase of development, after which it will swell into a red giant, either swallowing the Earth or at least completely scorching it. It is widely accepted by the scientific community that the earth will be destroyed around this time. However, as the Sun grows gradually hotter (over millions of years), the Earth may become too hot for life in only a billion years' time.


Not so many, compared to the 20 predicted dates over the last 12 years.  But I'm sure the usual suspects will make up some more before too long.

Ya know, thinking on it, some kind of ultimate rain storm makes for a pretty good spiritual / rebirth type apocalypse. The water washes away the bad and brings new life and all that.  Not as stylish (or useful gaming fodder) as zombies or fireballs from the sky, but it's got a certain type of style.

I dunno, I could write a kickass adventure set against a rainy apocalypse...

Sure, there's nothing worth watching on TV, but that's nothing new for a Saturday afternoon.

So very much this.

Actually, the calendar officially ends at 3:11 PDT, so we've still got just under two hours. I'm spending them writing. You?
Keeping an eye on stuff to make sure the apocalypse says cancelled.

I ditched my TV nearly two years ago and still haven't missed it.

My TV is only used for my PS2, when I actually play it.

Very aptly put.

And my T.V. is this monitor.
Literally. It does double-duty.
