The latest person crazy enough to set a solid date for the end of the world is a man by the name of Ronald Weinland. He’s setting the date as May 27, 2012, and he’s not shy about it:
As readers of this site know, May 27, 2012, is the time that I have stated as being the date Jesus Christ will return as King of kings over all government on this earth. For such an event to come to pass, the Trumpets of Revelation must all sound, the United States and dollar collapse, the ten nations of Europe arise to fulfill the final revival of the Holy Roman Empire, and Russia with China must unite against Europe in WWIII.
Weinland is a member of the Worldwide Church of God, a strange sect founded by Herbert W. Armstrong. You might be familiar with it if you read Otagosh, one of the few blogs in our circle that deals with it directly.
Weinland also has some words for those of us who would dare to mock him:
Weinlan is famous enough to have an attack blog dedicated to him: False Prophet Ronald Weinland
