So the deadline‘s been and gone, and as far as I can tell, the Earth remains blissfully quake-free and all the believers remain shackled to this mortal coil. I guess they’ll have to eat sky cake some other time.
I know this won’t make anyone shut up about prophecies and apocalypses — the Family Radio guy will announce he’s rechecked his sums in order to kick the Rapture can down the line by the Memorial Day, no doubt setting the new date far enough into the future that he doesn’t have to worry about being wrong. Though it seems neither he nor his organization was too bothered about that this time, either.
Don’t feel bad. After all, there are plenty of other ways to interpret scripture, especially if you’re looking to predict the end of the world — or just tell a ripping yarn. I looked at a bunch of them in this MSN Movies gallery last year; if you’ve just found yourself with a surprising amount of free time, there might be something you’d like to see in there.
