There was a prediction of the Rapture scheduled for yesterday. Did anyone notice anything?

End of the world 2018: ‘Rapture to begin TODAY’ as doomsday preppers ready for apocalypse
THE end of the world will begin today, according to a famous conspiracist.

quote:
The passage 12:1–2 reads: “And a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the Sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of 12 stars. She was pregnant and was crying out in birth pains and the agony of giving birth.”

It is thought that Virgo is the woman from the passage.

On April 23, the Sun and Moon will be in Virgo, as will Jupiter, which represents the Messiah.

Experts at first dismissed this claim when they discovered this alignment happens every 12 years.

However, the conspiracy theortists claims another planetary alignment, representing “the Lion of the tribe of Judah", will make this time the rapture.

perhaps a world ended somewhere....

Let's wait and see if Faith is still around.

An honest discussion is more of a peer review than a pep rally. My toughest critics here are the people who agree with me. -- ringo

Really? She's the furthest from being qualified for the Rapture.

Apparently its May 4th, 2018!

I wonder if we skeptics will be surprised if one of these goofy predictions actually comes true?

Why would anyone even visit some site named kbwealth4u? The domain name screams "Hey, don't think we are con men".
