An end times update, updated
[ by Charles Cameron — will these end times never end? ]
Back in November of last year I noted that a site that promulgates the prophecies of “one of the most significant Islamic books that have ever been written” had updated its estimation of the arrival of the Mahdi from “late 2013” to some time “either in 2015 or 2016” with variants
On a variety of sites this group has claimed, eg:
Most likely, the beginning of the End of Time is in 2013, the appearance (arrival or coming) of the Imam Mahdi (Mehdi) is in 2013, and Jesus Christ (p)’s return [or second (2nd ) coming as referred to by Christians] is going to be in 2022, in-sha-Allah.
On Our Numerical Based Analysis Of The Quran And Hadith, The Official Beginning Of The End Of Time And The Coming Of The Imam Mahdi Will Most Likely Be In 2014 And Jesus Christ (p) Will Come Down From Heaven To Earth In 2022, In- sha Allah (if Allah is willing).
The beginning of the End of Time, including the emergence of the Imam Mahdi (Mehdi), will most likely be either in 2015 or 2016 (possibly on September 22 or 23, 2015), while Jesus Christ (p)’s return [or second (2nd) coming] is in 2022, in-sha-Allah (if God is willing).
And as September 22 and 23 2015 were rapidly coming up on us, I thought it was important to note that last version.
In my earlier post, I mentioned some specific references to IS and al-Baghdadi which had featured in a page that’s no longer available except on the Internet Archive:
So their eschatology has an Islamic State component, as indeed does Al Baghdadi’s.
Here’s how their quantitative prophetic estimates have vared as dates pass and prophecy fails:
Oops! September, 2015:
Oops! In fact there’s an update posted just three days ago…
We squeaked by September 23rd, and now 2015, of which less than three months remain, is edging out 2016 in the odds.
Les jeux sont faits, rien ne va plus?
Meanwhile, Erdogan of Turkey may be seeing himself, as some of his followers apparently see him, as either a prophet or divine figure — according to Today’s Zaman, an organ of the Gulen movement.
Will these end times never end?

Back in the late 90s, I read everything I could get my hands on about Christian Eschatology. Then I started noticing the contradictions, the bad interpretations, and the way most of them kept getting things wrong. Kind of burned out on it. I note that the Bible / Torah has a prescription for false prophets, but none of these false prophets seem to notice that verse…
