The 13th is only a tentative date.

Which is why so many millennialist preachers are still in business - they can keep fudging right on up to 2033, as the Crucifixion may have occurred as late as AD 33. After that, they may need to get a bit more creative...

A competent mainstream preacher will tell you that they have no idea when Jesus will return. When Jesus said he would return quickly, he just meant it would be sudden.

The Venn diagram of the subsets "competent mainstream preacher" and "millennialist preacher" consists of two circles which never touch.

i can see sentient beings existing on planets around other stars; i can even see some of them achieving a civilization that is capable of the immense effort of launching vehicles into interstellar space. i have more trouble with imagining the reasons for their doing so. and when i consider the prospect of such beings arriving here & acting just like aliens always do in bad science fiction movies--i just laugh.

I am posting this on Oct. 16. So much for the Gathering of the UFOs.

What that business is, is Nonsense on Stilts.

So, the claim is that they did appear over New York. I thought blue_bean said they were supposed to appear over every major city in the world. I live in Johannesburg an I didn't notice any.

Correct that's what the man said about four months ago.

The areas that reported sightings on the 13th of October were the Eastern United States, from Texas to Vermont, South East Asia from China to Malaysia, and Australia.

I'm not saying it was "The Day The Earth Stood Still" stuff - but it's alot for a single day.

The story to keep an eye on is China. They've been blocking information getting out about the lights that appeared and the villages that were burned. Some are claiming it was a nuclear reactor leak.

A very large half circle of light moved slowly across the sky from east to west. It blotted out the stars as it passed before them.

I am waiting for a landing so I can ask, why do you speak English?
