Apocalypse Now?

Netizens have been told by the House of Yahweh in Abilene, Texas that the outbreak of nuclear war is scheduled for today. This YouTube remix provides some light-hearted background on the group.

Of course, not many are persuaded by these doomsday September 12 predictions. For example, this clip points out Biblical verses that contradict leader Yisrayl Hawkins' claim; it also features some very cute Photoshop images of squirrels.

Not all of the HoY rhetoric lacks credibility, however. Although the Wikipedia entry on the organization is so reverant that it must be written by a follower, it indicates an understanding of the conventions of contribution. The group also appears to have a faith-based initiative for distance learning all ready for taxpayer funding. I love the fact that front-man Hawkins has a personal page that copies the web design of the White House almost exactly.
