Here is the (his) full Chronology of the world.
Observant viewers will notice that this puts the SIX-THOUSANDTH
BIRTHDAY OF THE WORLD in October of 1997. (Please note - many
make the mistake of counting a year zero which would put the 6000th
birthday in 1996 - see 'Apology' below).
Obviously this doesn't quite agree with Darwin's theories that the world is maybe a tad bit older, though here is an attempt at a chronology that conciles the two ideas.
When we see a good reason to party, we go with it.
Do we care that the world may (or may not) be 6000 years old?
Heck no! It's time to party!
We know when we've got a good thing going, and if the resounding success of last years birthday party is any indication, this year should be a blowout.
WHY YOU SHOULD COME
'if the Son Of God does come back as Ussher predicts, he'll probably go to Dave's house first'
WHY WE ARE DOING THIS
That's not good enough? I can't give you a better answer for why we would waste this much time setting this up. Maybe it's just a manic attempt to make ourselves feel like we are loved. You love us, don't you?
Astute observers will notice:
So is it a fraud?
No - there is a simple explanation. First of all the 'ending of the world' was a silly rumor started by Dave Ljung, who takes full blame for this ludicrous lie. It was based upon the many doomsayers who used Bishop Ussher's work as a prediction for the end of the world.
The 6000th party last year was a mistake. It should've been 5999. No, we didn't know it at the time and I'm not making this up. No, you won't see a 6000th party next year, it will be the 6001th party (if there is a next year). The problem stems from the fact that many people counted the year 0 when they were counting from 4004 BC to present. There was no year 0, hence the 6000th year is this year.
Bishop was right: It's the 6000th birthday of the world! Have a party! Bishop was wrong: You missed the 6000th birthday of the world by a long shot. Might as well pretend that he was right so you can have a party!See how easy that is?
