The Brown Skinny Dog is Howling?

For half a decade now, the self-proclaimed prophet Linda Newkirk has been sending us her lamentations and predictions for the future. In 2009, Newkirk declared that the Messiah had been in training to set goat-people free for 42 months and would soon be revealed. In April of 2012, she declared that a massive earthquake and [...]

Forrester Research Finds Few Purchase With Mobile Devices

What these optimistic forecasts about mobile-based commerce actually show is that mobile devices are mostly useful to marketers as a technology for gathering information about shoppers, rather than as means for shopping in themselves. [...]

Pastor John Hagee: Something Big is Coming with the Four Blood Moons. What is it?

Like the Rev. Irwin Baxter, Pastor John Hagee just can’t stay away from the Christian End Times. In 1999, Hagee was quoted in the Washington Times (“End-times believers hedge apocalypse bets; Dramatic forecasts now hard to find,” Larry Witham, 12/9/99) as saying that “we are obviously in the last days.” In his high-selling 1999 book [...]

Rev. Irwin Baxter: World War III Comes this Year… so get Your 6-Year Subscription Today!

Back in 1991, Rev. Irvin Baxter started publishing EndTime magazine. That was 23 years ago. In 1997, Rev. Irvin Baxter started publishing his EndTime Magazine online at endtime.com, spreading the news of “his soon return.” That was 17 years ago, when he wrote:

Every 2,000 years there is a major event in the plan [...]

Are Bison Predicting A Yellowstone Volcanic Eruption?

This morning, over at the right wing conspiratorial web site, Before It’s News, they’re predicting that the Yellowstone National Park could soon see massive earthquakes, and perhaps even an eruption of the Yellowstone volcano. Such an eruption would be a very serious event, killing 90 percent of the people living within 1,000 kilometers of Yellowstone, [...]

Tom's Hypotheses of Doom: What's Your Assessment?

If you’ve read Irregular Times articles for any length of time, you’ll know that the writers here can be fairly dour, glum, down in the mouth, pessimistic, cynical, jaded and bleak at times. But next to our regular visitor and commentator Tom, we’re downright rosy. Seeing some of the same trends we see, Tom has [...]

Corapi and Cohen Religious Predictions of Doom lie Barren (excluding collateral damage)

It’s often said in authoritarian religious circles that “God is NOT mocked!”, “God CANNOT be mocked!,” or “God WILL NOT be mocked!”. As an empirical matter, the God character and His supposed standards are actually mocked on a regular basis. In the first decade of the 21st Century, two religious leaders predicted that such mockery [...]

The Difference Between a Crazy Christian and a Reasonable Christian

May 21 2011 has come and gone, and despite the predictions of Christian preacher Harold Camping on his nationally broadcast Family Radio programs, there has been no Judgment Day. No earthquake bigger than mankind has ever seen. No billions of dead bodies spit out of the earth and onto the ground.

Christian media outlets [...]

Go Ahead, Eat that Burger. God tells us the World ENDS in Three Days!

Why worry about your blood cholesterol when you’ve got eternity to contemplate?

Last December, F.G. Fitzer alerted us to the “infallible” biblical predictions of Christian leader Harold Camping that Judgment Day would come on May 21, 2011. That’s three days from now:

We learn from the Bible that Holy God plans to rescue about [...]

An Infallible Discovery Predicts The End Of The World

Harold Camping says that he has irrefutable evidence that the world will end on October 21, 2001, so don’t even bother thinking about what you’re going to be for Halloween next year. [...]

7/4/10: Five Hours Left for the Predicted Nuclear Detonation; Messiah Overdue

Over here on the East coast, there are only five hours left before the end of the 4th of July. That’s only five hours for the prediction of a U.S. government’s atomic bomb attack on one of its own cities either to come true or to be established as yet another in the long line [...]
