Curse #18- Harold Camping

Have you heard of Harold Camping? He believes that judgement day is going to be Saturday, May 21. I didn't do much research on him, but if you are curious just google him.

Anyway, the first time I heard of his prediction, my reaction was NOT...

"How dare he try to get attention off of this."

"Hasn't he read Matthew 24:36?"

No, that wasn't my reaction at all. Ever self-involved, my reaction was, "Is he kidding me? That's the first day of Birthday Week!!!"

Yes, that's right, I told you I loOoOoOove my birthday, and if you are keeping score, in May I have a Birthday Month, Birthday Week, and a Birthday. Oh! And don't forget Mother's Day.

Why yes! Shad has been complaining about being tired, why do you ask?

I don't worry too much when a random preacher predicts the end of the world (again Matthew 24:36), but I did pause when I heard that Isaac Newton predicted the end of the world in 2060. Isaac Newton the man that discovered GRAVITY and CALCULUS!

Funny story about calculus. Newton and this mathematician Leibniz actually argued over who discovered Calculus first. It was a mathematical throwdown! I always felt Newton should have just said, "Dude, I got gravity you take calculus.

Where was I? Sorry I had a math moment. Oh yes, out of all the days Mr. Camping could have picked, he picked the first day of birthday week. Thanks, Mr. Camping. Thanks alot.
