  • Don't complain about lack of options. You've got to pick a few when you do multiple choice. Those are the breaks.
  • Feel free to suggest poll ideas if you're feeling creative. I'd strongly suggest reading the past polls first.
  • This whole thing is wildly inaccurate. Rounding errors, ballot stuffers, dynamic IPs, firewalls. If you're using these numbers to do anything important, you're insane.

    Lets just say it does end, and soon. So what? If it is going to happen it will happen, and there is very little to do about it. Its like worrying about being hit by a bus. Better to live your life and not worry about it. Although I do suggest folks do check both ways before crossing the street.

    So much drama and gnashing of teeth about something that does not matter since it is beyond your control.

    This world will end a long time after humankind has rendered it unsuitable for life as we know it.

    It was here before us and likely will be here long after us.

    As for when WE (humankind) end- we seem determined to go away at some point in the next few centuries....

    The same person made a similar claim in 1998, stating that the Rapture would occur followed by Armageddon. Of course nothing happened. He selectively chooses which verses that supports such claims and ignores ones that point out that no-one bar God knows when it will happen:

    • Matthew 24:36: No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.
    • Matthew 24:42: Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come.
    • Matthew 25:13: Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.
    • Mark 13:32-33: No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. Be on guard! Be alert! You do not know when that time will come.
    • Mark 13:35: Therefore keep watch because you do not know when the owner of the house will come back–whether in the evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or at dawn.

    There are other conditions laid out in the Bible that are to occur before the Rapture, none of which have occured:

    • Where is the rebuilt Temple ?
    • If the temple hasn’t been rebuilt, how can it be desecrated by the Antichrist?
    • Where is the Antichrist?
    • The institution of One World Government, Currency, and Reulgion
    • The battles against Israel by Russia and Iran
    • the return of jews to Israel

    How can someone calulng themselves Christian ignore all of that?

    Don't blame 9/11, blame America. We're the fools who did everything the terrorists dreamed we would.

The flow chart is a most thoroughly oversold piece of program documentation. -- Frederick Brooks, "The Mythical Man Month"
