Quote of the day: May 21, 2011

But of that day and [that] hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. – Mark 13:32

“… (false) prophets have been predicting the end times, and getting the dates wrong, for hundreds of years. One of the best-known examples in America is the “Great Disappointment” of 1844. Baptist preacher William Miller predicted that the “Second Advent” would come on Oct. 22 of that year (after a couple of abortive predictions for earlier dates). He attracted as many as 50,000 adherents by the time the big day came. Nothing happened, of course. The result? Derision, church burnings, vandalism, even tar-and-feathering.” – Alan Boyle writing on the observations of University of York historian Nicholas Guyatt
