HONOLULU, Hawaii (The Adobo Chronicles) – A Christian organization earlier warned that the planet earth will be permanently destroyed on Wednesday, October 7.
The eBible Fellowship, an online affiliation headquartered near Philadelphia, has based its prediction of an October obliteration on a previous claim that the world would end on 21 May 2011. While that claim proved to be false, the organization is confident it has the correct date this time.
“According to what the Bible is presenting it does appear that 7 October will be the day that God has spoken of: in which, the world will pass away,” said Chris McCann, the leader and founder of the fellowship, an online gathering of Christians headquartered in Philadelphia.
“It’ll be gone forever. Annihilated.”
Well, it’s now Thursday in every continent of planet earth, and people are still waking up with everything fully intact.
In Honolulu, surfers started heading for their early morning routine; the McDonald’s restaurant on Kalakaua Avenue is still serving the island platter of SPAM, Portuguese sausage, eggs and rice; and Japanese and other tourists boarded airconditioned buses headed for Hanauma Bay, a favorite snorkeling spot.
In the Philippines, NoyNoy Aquino is still president while Mar Roxas, VP Jojo Binay and Senator Grace Poe are still running to succeed him; Filipinos are still praying that Mayor Rod Duterte will declare his candidacy; there is still a long line to get to the MRT trains; and commuters are still stuck in traffic on EDSA.
There’s even good news: the man who heads the agency managing public services in the Philippine capital, Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Chair Francis Tolentino, has resigned following a disgraceful Liberal Party event in Laguna province, featuring lewd performances by scantily-clad women.
But there is also some bad news: Filipino champion boxer Manny Pacquiao, congressman who is the number one absentee legislator, is running for senator; and his chances for a rematch with American Floyd Mayweather just went ‘poooof!’ Mayweather this week announced his retirement after 49 undefeated championship fights.
Meanwhile, the Hollywood film, ‘The Martian,’ opened this week in theaters worldwide and actor Matt Damon is still in hot water for his racial and homophobic comments.
