Alaways a good idea to do a little searching before asking .... just in case?

I'm ready for a new countdown.

Has the Large Hadron Collider destroyed the world yet?

Lets count down to when it does!

You know, Harold Camping and friends at Family Radio Network predicted the end of the world a few times, with epic countdowns, and people giving away all their money and possessions: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harold_Camping

I think we canhave repeated this.

"On May 23, 2011, in an appearance before the press, Camping stated he had reinterpreted his prophecy. In his revised claim, May 21 was a "spiritual" judgment day, and the physical Rapture would occur on October 21, 2011, simultaneously with the destruction of the world."

This coincides with other Pentax predictions of great full frame Pentax reveals.

I was in Disneyworld. I watched the forums via mobile. No Reveal! Many then said Pentax was dead.

As it turns out, Pentax didn't die, and there also wasn't a full frame, or a rapture. *shrug*

I did. I searched the K-3 subforum with "issue" and "problem" and nothing obvious came up. But nothing wrong with a little moral superiority, I guess.

The search function on this site is somewhat less than precise. Oddly a google search for the same terms will often come back to this site, but the site search will not find it. So, understandable you could not find it.

As the wiki entry for Camping states:

QuoteQuote:
In March 2012, he stated that his attempt to predict a date was "sinful", and that his critics had been right in emphasizing the words of Matthew 24:36: "of that day and hour knoweth no man". He added that he was now searching the Bible "even more fervently...not to find dates, but to be more faithful in [his] understanding."[19]
Rapture still happens. One man's failed attempt to predict the time doesn't negate the actual promise of the event occurring at some unknown (to humanity) point in time.

Same with the Pentax FF..

That said, I'm more looking forward to the rapture.. either way we have to just be patient.

I guess it is the internet, but I don't know that anyone is lying. Certainly Kenpo and Asahiman are just kindly sharing the information that was passed on to them.

Maybe this info was overly optimistic. Maybe there was a problem with some hardware or firmware issue with the upcoming camera, but it still is coming and patience probably is indicated for those who can deal with APS-C for another few months.
