In a world that is full of misinformation and outright lies, I have tried to create a site that can provide accurate and rational responses to questions about life. We can explore the pressing questions about science, religion, government and society together. Of course, we can have some fun doing this as well.

Doomsday prophet vows to quit predicting the Rapture
Preacher Harold Camping is leaving it to the
Mayans. The 90-year-old head of Family Radio incorrectly predicted the Rapture would take place on May 21,
2011, and when that didn't happen he aimed for Oct. 21, 2011, which also failed.
"We have no new evidence pointing to another date for the end of the world,"
Camping said in a statement on the Family Radio website. His bad
timing on the Rapture became a huge media event, mostly to mock him, but some of
his followers quit their jobs and donated their life savings ahead of the event.
Camping said he has sinned by promoting May 21 as Judgment Day and says he has
no plans to ever predict the date again.
