Apocalypse Confirmed?

Believe it or not, the Mayans did.

End of the world speculation after new Mayan discovery

Archaeologists in Mexico have confirmed the discovery of a possible second Mayan reference to the date 2012, offering further ammunition for doom-mongers predicting an apocalypse next year.

Mexico’s National Institute of Anthropology and History acknowledged the reference had been found in a 1,300-year-old inscription made on a carved brick fragment at a ruin at Comalcalco in the south of the country.

Most experts have previously cited only one surviving Mayan reference to the date, on a stone tablet from a nearby site at Tortuguero.

Unless, you know, I’m not Raptured tomorrow and boy will I be dissapointed if I’m left behind.

How Harold Camping marketed the Rapture

Some Americans have extreme plans this weekend. A religious leader named Harold Camping has convinced them the end of the world starts at 6 p.m. ET Saturday.

Most of the world’s faithful do not believe the date is Judgment Day. But as CBS News correspondent Bill Whitaker reports, it seems just about everyone’s seen the signs about the end of the world.

“May 21st, 2011 is the day of judgment,” a Family Radio ad says. It’s a prophecy aggressively peddled by 89-year-old Harold Camping, a civil engineer and self-taught Biblical sage.

“You and I are living at the time of the end of the world,” Camping says.

He claims to have discerned the date from numerological calculations revealed by his reading of the Bible. He spread his prophecy around the world through broadcasts on his Family Radio network in 84 languages, on RV caravans and on 1,200 billboards around the country.

Of course, any fruitcake with a nut loose can do some mumbo jumbo numerological calculations, based on information that’s not actually found anywhere in the Bible, and come up with a date for Doomsday. It’s happened hundreds, if not thousands, of times over the centuries. But where do you get the 6 p.m. ET? That seems to be a bit of gratuitous icing on the freak cake.

/anyway, I suppose I’ll top off the cats’ food and water, just in case, I wonder if R.E.M. will get a little something extra in their royalty checks because of this?

End Times, Iranian Style

It doesn’t matter whether it’s true or not, what matters is that the leadership of the Iranian regime believes it and believes they are presently involved in playing an integral part in bringing about the end of the world.

Iran’s End Times Documentary

The Iranian government has produced a bone-chilling documentary that claims that Ayatollah Khamenei, President Ahmadinejad, and Hassan Nasrallah are talked about in Islamic prophecy as leaders who will wage war to bring about the arrival of the Hidden Imam, which the film says is “very close” to happening.

Reza Kahlili, a former member of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards who spied for the CIA and authored A Time to Betray last year, procured the entire film and says it was created by close associates of Ahmadinejad and was shown to top clerics two weeks ago. His chief of staff, Esfandiar Rahim Mashaei, is said to have played a role in its creation. Kahlili allowed FrontPage to view a shortened version of the film over the weekend, which he says the Iranian regime intends to distribute to mosques and Islamic centers throughout the region with an Arabic translation and is currently being shown to members of the Revolutionary Guards and Basiji.

The purpose of the film is to make the case that Iran is prophetically destined to lead the war against Islam’s enemies, which is as a prelude to the appearance of the Hidden Imam, also called the Mahdi, who brings the final victory for Islam and reigns over the whole world. It uses current events to argue that “the final chapter has begun” and the Mahdi’s arrival is imminent. Most disturbingly, it teaches that Khamenei, Ahmadinejad and Nasrallah are the individuals prophesied to make this happen.

/this falls under the category of know your enemy and if Ahmadinejad, Khamenei, and Nasrallah truly believe that they’re destined to to bring about the end of the world in their lifetimes, the West in in for some serious trouble, heed the warning
