Another in a long line of specified dates for the end of the world. Previous ones have come and gone with nothing happening. While it is quite ridiculous to name a specific date for the end of the world, as Christ says in the Bible that noone knows the day or the hour except the Father, it would be interesting to see if something else does happen on that date. While many disregard this kind of thing, it is widely accepted by many faithful Catholics and other Christians (myself included) that we are indeed living the events predicted in the Book of Revelations. While we do not know at all when certain things predicted will happen, we do believe that they will occur within our lifetime.
