The World ends May 21, 2011, but the Charlotte Museum of History will be ready

A Warning for All

Charlotteans can take some comfort in knowing that even if the world as we know it soon comes to an end, their cultural heritage will remain intact. It seems that state officials have heeded the warnings of Reverend Harold Camping who has announced with biblical certainty that Judgement Day will occur on May 21, 2011.

According to Rev. Camping, May 21, 2011 marks 7000 years since Noah's flood. In biblical numerology, the number 7 means completion. The number 1000 can mean immortality and/or divine completion. 7000 means it is really, really, really the end this time. The exact date of the apocalypse is given by some deceptively simple math.

4990 (the validated date of Noah’s flood) + 2011 – 1 = 7,000

Apparently the folks in Washington and Raleigh are taking the approach of the end of days quite seriously. The federal Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) has given grant funding to the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources to administer the “Connecting to Collections Project." The goal of Connecting to Collections (C2C) is to:

“ ... formulate a plan of action to assist the state’s archives, museums, library special collections and historic sites with traditional preservation of collections and disaster preparedness and response.”

To that end, on April 11, 2011 --- exactly 40 (FOURTY) days prior to doom's day, (C2C) will sponsor and conduct an Emergency & Disaster Preparedness workshop. The workshop will be hosted by the Charlotte Museum of History.

According to conformation form on Surveymonkey (www.surveymonkey.com/s/disasterpreparednesscharlotte), this workshop is for:

“for staff, board members, and volunteers who are interested in preserving and protecting cultural heritage when faced with emergency situations.”

Is the fact that the workshop is held exactly 40 days before the time of sorrow and woe a mere coincidence? I think not. In biblical numerology, the number 40 is the number of is the number of the waiting, the preparation and of fulfillment. Oddly, there is no mention of this workshop on the museum’s website, www.charlottemuseum.org/. Perhaps this is Charlotte’s second best kept secret.

    Ezekiel 33:6:

    But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.

    Ezekiel 3:19
    Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.

    If someone walks up to you and says the world is ending Saturday, simply say this:

    "Can I have your stuff?"

    And see the reaction!
