We held a discussion with the group of people and asked them what is the possibility if doomsday can be sold to someone. The group and its member were not of the view that doomsday can be sold because it is not a tangible product. Agreed. What about this. If someone has an idea which can be linked with Guerrilla Marketing and wishes to sell that to someone. Will that work? That may work. Though, there are very few possibilities whether someone would really invest the money in doomsday related ideas and wait to see the returns. In my views, Harold Camping and his group has long been in the business of predicting the End of the World. It is good to see that this time Harold has the funding from someone who would be willing to fund the idea and share the returns.
Sounds good. So, in practical, the doomsday of May 21, 2011 can be sold and it can be objectified for showing the investors that if we do it rightly, there is money. You need to consider the cost of hiring billboards which is not very cheap. The more of campaign and more of hype would lead to the right results. You may make money through various revenue models.
I know many doomsday site owners who make nothing and their sites have Low traffic and Zero earnings so far. I sometime think, why someone would come half prepared in the game and would not get anything. All sold ideas which have been dealing with doomsday are going to be ineffective post May 21, 2011. The failure of prediction would cost very high. You need to see that Harold Camping’s half measures and his failure would be costly affair for many site owners and for the people who are believing in him too much.
The verdict is, Doomsday ideas can be sold to investors. It all depends on how you do it.
Tall claims of October 21, 2011 doomsday are making rounds in the media. Are media and the public being taken for a ride?. Masking the domain names by paying extra $7 is good thing because it wipes off your accountability of claims which you can make on your hosted site somewhere. This is what I discovered when I tried to look for details of the domain name ebiblefellowship.com. You get no whois details of the person who owns the domain name.
Another thing, you browse the site, all you get a PO address along with a email form. Good to see all this. You can make very tall claims and still remain nameless and faceless. These are all signs of Guerrilla Marketing tactics. Only creators of the theme or those who have access to site’s analytical data would know the truth whether it is all failing or getting popularity. I see some of the photos of Caravan moving in different parts of the world. This all may be staged or may be true. Nobody can say for sure.
The intriguing piece about all this is, the masked details. You can not reach the individuals and organizations who made the claims and delivered the next doomsday date as October 21 2011. According to the claims, this all is going to begin on May 21, 2011 and world would be destroyed on October 21, 2011. I fail to understand why all doomsday dates are having 21 in them. Those billboards must have been expensive to afford or suddenly the messiah has descended on the earth and offered lots of money and said, go save the world, if you need money, here it is.
Some of the perfect hoaxes are not so well created that they would look credible. Some of them fail to take off. Some of them become popular especially when you sponsor the billboards. Other than Bible prophecy, if there is anything worth to say, world would like to hear. But first, a Gentle Question, Who are you?

I was having good time until I noticed the new doomsday date that is May 21 2011. Like me, thousands of the people are looking for possible clues to find out whether this news is true. The roots of this particular new doomsday date of May 21, 2011 lie in the group of 10 people who run a radio station somewhere. Do we care who are these people? Are we trying to save our backs rather caring about who told us what. And are doomsday clocks are running reverse now? May be yes, May be No. Even those who created doomsday theories do not know for sure whether they are wrong or right.

My first suggestion to anyone who is in the state of panic after reading the new predictions of doomsday on May 21, 2011 which is not far away from now, just take a glass full of water, yeah, drink it and sit down. Take long breaths. The world is not going to end. Now, you need to get online and find out the truth.
I checked the claims of this new date. All those logics are badly flawed and would not stand the chance when run on the statistical models. The doomsday is not occurring on May 21, 2011 because:
- Bible can not bring the doomsday on earth. It is the truth whether you believe it or not.
- Neither Bible is the book for ultimate truth nor it holds the key to doomsday. Bible can be interpreted as you wish and many people use the most beautiful book to fulfill their own purpose of creating several hoaxes.
- Anyone who says doomsday is coming on certain dates, can he or she or group of people take full responsibility if doomsday does not occur?
- Most important, any group or individual who creates hoaxes, is nameless and faceless entity. You can not take them to court. Their accountability is not established. They are not responsible for anything. They would claim, we said something why did you believe it.
- Just read the news, there are no signs of doomsday yet. There is nothing as such doomsday of any date.
- Enjoy the news and see how people create more news out of this May 21, 2011 new doomsday date.
Coming back to 2012 Doomsday, that is still far away. More stories would emerge by that time. Take all of them with pinch of salt and read and enjoy them with caution because they do not mean anything beyond fun part of them.
