Not the best track record

Which is, really, fortunate.

“10 other dates when the world failed to end.”

One of my favorites:

Sept 11-13 1988 – Former Nasa engineer Edgar Whisenant sold 4.5 million copies of his book 88 Reasons Why the Rapture Could Be in 1988, mostly to evangelical US Christians. Follow-up works, which revised the prediction for dates in the 1990s, failed to sell as well.

Shocking!  (Emphasis added.)

Also, I’m pretty sure it’s supposed to be “March 1997” and not “Match 1997”.
