Friday Flash 55.....




.



Family Radio founder Harold Camping was
surprisingly mistaken in predicting that Jesus
would return for his followers on May 21, 2011.
Even The Bible says..."But of that day and hour,
no one knows. Not even the Angels in Heaven, nor
The Son, Only the Father." (Mark 13:32).
How does he determine the date of Rapture?


He's got another date...Sometime in August!
If you or anyone you know has written a Friday Flash 55
Please come tell The G-Man
I will visit, read, enjoy, comment....Then BOOK!!!
So from the most Ruptured host from coast to coast...
Have a Kick Ass Week-End!!!

55 Flash Fiction Friday: You Do Know

A Kwee Life said...

Yup! I got one. My first one, and I am suitably nervous for it. I like your post. I always remind myself that no one is supposed to know the "when" too. Mine is here: http://akweelife.blogspot.com/2011/06/55-words-june-9-2011.html

And thank you.

Mama Zen said...

I'm sorry, but I'm all booked up in August. Could he pick another date?

I'll have a 55 in the morning.

hedgewitch said...

I was hoping he was right--I could have used the extra air and space while waiting to fry in the Bad Place after all those people were Raptured away.

I'm playin--accidentally appropriate to the theme here with a take on one of the Seven Deadly Sins:

Gluttony

secret agent woman said...

Oh, everything I've read says he moved the Rapture date to October 21st.

lime said...

moondustwriter said...

Serena said...

I think I'm just going to do whatever the heck I want and enjoy it until Rapture Day sneaks up on me.

Helen said...

I think you have the answer .. he blindfolds himself and shoots darts at a calendar! Pin the tail on the ass?

Pheromone Girl said...

I heard it was November... well, confusion abounds!

Maybe that preacher should stay out of the kitchen...

What has he done?

Eric 'Bubba' Alder said...

Here's MINE!

Elaine said...

Perhaps when he knows the date he should tell God. Or perhaps he should tell Mr Know it All...who will get the word out!
Mine is up.

Helen said...

... and here I am.

Chef Kar said...

I suspect August will come and go and yet another date selected. Will he ever get it right? Hmmmmm.....

Janna said...

I'm baaaack.

Mine's here. :)

Monkey Man said...

I heard the rapture is delayed until October 21st, but that will all be academic because the apocalypse is June 21. Confused???

HERE is my 55 with Breathtaking Curves.

TALON said...

Loved it, Galen. I'm so relieved and now I have more time to say my goodbyes! :)

My 55: Red Moons and Chipmunks

libraryscene said...

Fabulous, I can host another camping party. Until then, I've got a reunion to attend. Have a killer weekend, G...stay cool!

Alice Audrey said...

He read between the lines?

Mine is up

Stranger said...

So first he was wrong in 1994 (or was it '93?), And again in May. Now he's sure it's August or October?
"Believers, save your spot on the rapture and get the word out! Send in all your (tax exempt) money now!"
Do you know how much tax exempt money he's making off his predictions?
That man is a genius.

Mine's up.

Weekend hugs xox

RNSANE said...

I think I'll arrange my own rapture and I certainly won't count on his. He, perhaps, needs to get back on his medications.

My 55, written from the miserable confines of my hospital room where my stomach hankers for some good food, is at:

Wait, you mean I'm not saved???

Love the use of "surprisingly mistaken" in this context.

MorningAJ said...

Maybe Jesus came and fetched the ones he wanted and the Rev wasn't among them!

I'm up here.

Might take me a couple of days to get round everyone this week becase (as you can see) I'm off to enjoy myself on the other side of the country. (Which isn't as far here as it would be in the US!)

Tino said...

Well it's all going to end next year [2012] or we will all be sucked into a black hole created by the Hadron Collider, so none of it really matters anyway.

Have a great weekend y'all.

Me said...

OK, maybe he's just confusing the date of rapture with the date of birthday celebrations in my family? First my birthday, now August (my little one's due to turn 4 at the end of that month)...

I have another musical 55, G (don't worry, more than half way through the month now, so it's *almost* over!). Mine is here.

gautami tripathy said...

I had joined the group post-rapture looting at FB. But for no avail! Hope I get to loot at the next date!! It is October 21!!!


Here is my FF 55: it never ends

the walking man said...

Well at least he proved he is not God nor any part there of...so in a small way he did the public a small but expensive (for some) service.

Linda said...

We many not know when it will be, but it's pretty certain when it won't be, and that's when someone predicts it.

Here's mine at Roses to Rainbows

Jannie Funster said...

The date of rapture is always NOW, according to Debbie Harry.

And holy cow -- JANNIE just posted a 55!! here, I think...?

xoxoxo

Hey - same day!
There is a quote about God being a comedian playing for an audience too afraid to laugh. Well, here's hoping She has a good sense of humor ;-)

Last again :( No computer all week, out to get fixed, then the internet was down yesterday and is still a bit wonky today. I already wrote something about that nut job a few weeks ago, but here's a little humor about my day yesterday. Enjoy. :)
Have a sunny weekend!!!
