National "Make Fun of Christians' View of the End Times" Day

Date: 05/23/2011

I too am one of the many people who chuckled at news stories about Harold Camping’s prediction that the world was going to end on May 21st.  As a Bible believer, it was clear that his predictions were more science fiction meets Beautiful Mind than anything Biblical or historical.  I was shocked that educated people could fall for such nonsense.

A comment on my post Evolution in the Key of D: Deity or Deism noted: ...this reminds me of why I get annoyed so much by those who write on theology and evolution. It's usually just deism and ...
