Automated Reply of the Day

I sent an e-mail to fellow blogger Nick Norelli and received the following back as an automated response:

I will be out of the earth until forever. The rapture has occurred and if you have received this message you missed it. Sucks to be you.

If this were authentic, it would mean that Harold Camping was wrong, since it isn’t 6pm in Tonga yet. But I shared it because it was funny, not because I thought it was authentic.

On a related note, Gez shared the following quote attributed to Charles Schultz:

“Don’t worry about the world coming to an end today, it’s already tomorrow in Australia”

Jim West, Deane Galbraith, Jason Staples and Roger Olson are also among those who’ve blogged lately about Harold Camping and his Rapture prediction
