This Rapture Malarkey

Harold Camping in 2008
So the Rapture turned into an internet meme, an American church wasted a lot of money on posters and one old man is left looking very silly indeed.  On the whole it seems that almost nobody, traditional Christians included, thought that the world would at teatime yesterday. Personally, I feel that the Rapture might rather take place with the coming of the dawn or the setting of the sun, it seems more fitting that way.

According to Christian blogger Rick Hawbaker, Harold Camping's prophecy of the Rapture was clearly wrong because it states in the Bible in Matthew 24:36  “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father" and Jesus also makes the point in Acts 1:7, "It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority.”

    Whos dawn or sunset. Yours, America's, whoever happens to be at the head/tail of the date line (in which case are Samoa allow to swap back again if they feel they're at the wrong end) or does everyone get their own?
