Well, if we could have only got lucky enough for old Herbie to have been
silenced when the first date he set failed to come to fruition! But as
we know, the old goat was not the first heretic when it came to
religious charlatans. From some recent headlines we learn of other
profit$ of doom.
Nantou County police, in central Taiwan, Thursday (May 12) moved
to question ‘Teacher Wang’ who recently made a doomsday forecast on
charges of spreading rumours that incited people to panic.
Teacher Wang, whose real name is Wang Chao-hung and a resident of
Nantou County, foretold that a magnitude 14 quake and massive tsunami
would devastate Taiwan on May 11, at 10:42:37am.
To prepare for the looming disaster, some of Wang’s followers
rented vacant lots in Puli Township of the county and filled them with
nearly 200 containers that were converted into shelters. They stockpiled
daily necessities for emergency use.
The doomsday gossip, which was circulated online, has caused some
people to panic. But it proved the doomsday prophecy was groundless,
and nothing happened on May 11.
The police said that Wang may be detained for a maximum of three
days or fined NT$30,000(US$1,000) for violating the Social Order
Maintaining Act by spreading groundless doomsday rumours.
One of two civil claims brought against religious group Agape
Ministries may be settled out of court. That plaintiff and another
former church member, Martin Penney, are suing pastor Rocco Leo and two
of his associates, Joe Venziano and Mari-Antionette Veneziano.
They want their money back, claiming they handed over more than
$400,000 and $1 million respectively to the church based on lies about a
Jack Van Impe.
I know less than nothing about this character but he does call into account some of the glum doomsayers and false prophets: Jack Van Impe on false prophets. (Right click and open in new tab, watch for one minute or
Jack call this time of the end a “Happy Time”
not a time of destruction and judgment that the Armstrong brand of
prophets and apostles declare. So what is with this doom and coming
gloom? Well it has always been with mankind since the times they could
write on bone or bamboo. It persists to this day using electronic media
in the form of TV or DVD and of course, the Internet.
All this bad news is now put forth by only religious nuts either.
Secular sources put forth their dribble as to dooms day. It’s a magnet
and is amazing how susceptible people are to believing this doom and
Secular Prophetic Scum.
“The Population Bomb”
Paul R. Ehrlich, author of the above title, 1968.
Ehrlich argued that birthrates were out of control and would cause a
worldwide crisis. He came to this conclusion not through Divine
Revelation but through Divine Equation, the liberal scripture of
pseudo-science. Ehrlich ‘calculated’ using the equation I = P x A x T.
This means that Human Impact (I) on environment equals the product of
Population, Affluence and Technology. The conclusion was that in the
decades of the 1970′s hundreds of millions of people will starve to
death. Did it happen? Was he called on it? Read more HERE. Ehrlich later stated he was kind of right. Read the link I gave. You’ll learn something of value as to understanding his thought process.
Kenneth Watt, ecologist, said there wouldn’t be any crude oil left by 2000. Harrison Brown, at the National Academy of Sciences, said the world would be out of lead, zinc, copper, tin, gold and silver by this time. Michael Oppenheimer, author of “Dead Heat” in the mid
90′s, predicted global warming in 20 years. Opphenheimer predicted that
“1995, the greenhouse effect would be desolating the heartlands of North
America and Eurasia with horrific drought, causing crop failures and
food riots . . . [By 1996] The Platte River of Nebraska would be dry,
while a continent-wide black blizzard of prairie topsoil will stop
traffic on interstates, strip paint from houses and shut down
computers.” Despite the fact that “data from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight
Center shows that precipitation-rain and snow-has increased slightly
over the century,” Oppenheimer has further said:
“On the whole I would stand by these predictions-not predictions,
scenarios-as having at least in a general way actually come true.” Just like Harold Camping and Herbert Armstrong!
But Wait, There’s More!
Dr. David Viner, senior research scientist at
England’s climatic research unit of the University of East Anglia, said
in 2000 that because of global warming, within just a few years “Children just aren’t going to know what snow is and flurries will be a very rare and exciting event.”
In the 70′s you could read in TIME or LIFE magazine that there would be no United States by the year 2000.
In the endgame there is nothing scientific about these predictions of
failure for the human race. These “authorities” just make it up as they
go along on their path of deceit and destruction.
To the current Armstrong member, you can ignore this current blog entry. Honesty and objective thinking is lost on you.
To those who have left the gulag of Armstrong-ism, let me ask you
“why do you embrace the religion of scientific and/or political whores
that puke forth heresies that entice you further down the road of
another pseudo slavery?
