    Ads Around Nashville Say End Of World Is 6 Months Away
    3:17

    by Kim Gebbia

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A widespread ad campaign popping up on Music City roadsides claims the end of the world is just six months away. Some call it a scare tactic or publicity stunt, but the group behind this message claim it's very real.

    They site the Bible and the book of revelations which states Jesus will return to earth.

    For Christians waiting for a signal of the time, the date, or perhaps even a sign from a above? There's now a crystal clear one on billboards all across Nashville.

    The Christian non profit, Family Radio Worldwide, who sponsored these ads said they know exactly when the apocalypse is coming, and it's May 21, 2011.

    The 89-year old director behind Family Radio is so sure of this date, they put up 40 billboards here Nashville and hundreds more all around the globe to give folks an ample warning.

    "This is the day, this is really the day this is not a joke," said Tom Evans, a spokesperson for the organization.

    He spoke with NewsChannel5 by phone from their California office. Evans said the date was carefully calculated from specific biblical dates, years and numbers referenced in the Bible. He also said May 21, 2011 will mark the end of mankind.

    "It's going to be a wonderful day for the believers and they will be caught up and raptured to be with Christ and those that remain here on earth will be subject to an earthquake that has never occurred in all of creation," said Evans.
    Well, this makes scheduling a lot easier.

    Will they commit suicide if they're wrong? They need to have some skin in the game.

    "Our president delivered his State of the Union message to Congress. That is one of the things his contract calls for -- to tell congress the condition of the country. This message, as I say, is to Congress. The rest of the people know the condition of the country, for they live in it, but Congress has no idea what is going on in America, so the president has to tell 'em." ~ Will Rogers

    Well, what if people cancel weddings, proms, and Memorial Day picnics for nothing? It's not like you can get your deposit back.

    At least they could have gotten the title correct; it's Revelation.

    This isn't even risky, it's stupid. Jesus himself said that only the Father knew the day. So far the doomsday prophets are a perfect 100% on this prediction.

    The writer also used "site" instead of "cite". The lit'rucy rate 'round Nashville maht cud be lackin'.
