Prophet Kim Miller resurfaces and predicts The Beginning of the End on the Millenium's 777th day. Which just so happens to be today, here on North America's west coast, for about the next 45 minutes as of this post and has to do with the Olympics as well.

You may remember Kim Miller and his flock, known as the "Concerned Christians" from back in 1999, when several of them were deported from Israel.

So....does this mean I won't have to get up for Traffic School Saturday morning?

not so much a prophet as a grossly deluded fool.

I think he got his lines crossed. All that "bode"-ing must have been about Bode Miller - silver medal, go USA!

isn't every day the beginning of the end? every day is one step closer to death...and taxes. if he really could predict the future why not pick tomorrow's powerball number or something?

There used to be a great little database on all the failed predictions from every cult or religious personality type from all over the world. Every other week or so the world is going to end with special emphasis on 2012. I'm not exactly overwheled with surprised.

What really interests me is how America is fascinated with the fundamentalist and revival types. Any crazy thing they say makes it to AP/Reuters, on TV, Metafilter, etc. What's the draw here? Is it too hard to imagine that 'Mericans might be just as crazy as a third-world doomsday cult? Its not like these kind of reports oust anyone or change anyone's mind.

In every case I've seen, a failed doomsday prediction is rationalized away and the cult doesn't break up in anger. A cult leader without a failed prediction is probably doing something wrong.

I think the first TRUE sign of the apocalypse would be the disappearance of all these doomsday types.

Who does that guy think he is?
It says in the Bible that even Jesus doesn't know
the day or the hour of the last day. Why are there
so many fools that try to play God?

the important thing about a prediction, an horoscope, an oracle, etc., is that they emphazise in something that maybe we have not considered before. it is not going to happen at all, the prediction just says "take care of this", kind of an advice. if you consider the real possibilities with what the predicition say, you have a wider point of view of the real situation, that way, you may be prepared…

Real prophets don't get involved in shootouts. Jesus didn't come with a machine gun.

This is no different then the whole Kaballah idea -- only in this particular christian version of it prophets are going for an intellectually lazy interpretation of that whole dubious theory. No complex calculations, no concordance aspect, just having the number plain as day in front of your eyes, repeated for emphasis. The followers of this kook even go so far as to ignore the fact that "year 0" is a few years off from the real thing. Yawn.

This is a great homor site. I wonder if the guy tours? He could team up with Chris Rock and they could sell out the garden.

I don't understand why people continue to make predictions. It must be something about a mundane and boring life that makes someone wish that god would come down and shake all the sinners. People are in fear of Traffic School Saturday morning so they hope that it will all end in a blaze of glory.

I often look forward to the next great California earthquake. It'll give me something to do.
