The World didn’t end — 9 Comments

  1. If the rapture happened, we thought it sounded like it was going to take mainly the Tea Party and the Republicans.

    Mixed blessing?

  2. Y’know, as a member of our tribe, I felt so out of touch about this…we did not get this memo…I jokingly asked a buddy where to pick up “the Jewish girl’s guide to the Rapture” just so I could be on the same page with everyone else…

    Didn’t stop me from enjoying the jokes about the end that didn’t come!

  3. The whole idea is to be prepared even if one is not ready. I’d like to believe I’m prepared . . . and old enough not to give it a whole lot of thought

  4. This character is non operational in Texas.

    We were seeing pix on TV of multiple East Coast billboards.

    If he recovers for another prediction, I would suggest that we all go on a cruise. We can finance it with profits from options on billboard advertisers stock taken out when he announces the next date and sold a month before.

    The money could be thought of as Prophets profits.

  5. He is now saying October sometime! Why do they give this man any publicity at all? He is causing untold harm to vulnerable people.

  6. We were on sea (bay) for this last one. When you see some of those cigarette boats screaming by you suspect they HAVE become unmanned. And even two sailboats maneuvered in a drunken manner suggesting loss of a captain….

  7. The fundamental tenet of quantum theory is that stuff is really just waves of probability which upon observation collapse into classical forms that we are used to seeing as in the case of an electron which becomes a particle only when measured. Everett as a graduate student under John Archibald Wheeler, the renowned quantum theorist here in the 50’s, proposed and supported in his PhD thesis that what was going was not classical collapse but rather at every inflection point in human reality everything that can happen does happen but in separate universes branching off the inflection point such that that we who experience and occupy one such branch are totally oblivious to the virtually infinite but simultaneous other ones where the other things happen. Sound far-fetched? But quantum theory produces weird results. Unfortunately for the mystified most of its principles have been mathematically validated. A great read on this important field is Geons, Black Holes and Quantum Foam by Wheeler which not only traces his history with the Manhattan Project, in which he was a central player, but also elaborates on many of the fascinating developments in quantum physics since then including young Everett’s work which he sanctioned. The leading figure today advocating the multiple universe theory is the Harvard physicist Lisa Randall, who to me is the rock star of scientific theory.
