    Did you feel anything Today (Friday) at 3:00 PM?

    For those who don't know, this is when Jesus died on the cross.

    I felt something, I looked at the time and said an Our Father right at 3:00.

    Just wondering if anyone has had any similar things happen... :)

    I'm religious, Catholic.

    EDIT: This is supposed to be in the Community Discussion forum, sorry. :eek:

    You felt something at 3 PM, eh? What about the time zone difference? I'm not being smarmy, just curious.:)

    My eyes flew open from my nap, I don't usually wake up so... jarringly. :shrug: Maybe I was moved by the Holy Spirit?

    Well, I drove home from college today, and I was too lazy to get off the highway, so had to go to the bathroom, and I pulled into the driveway probably around 2:59 and ran to the bathroom, so right around 3 PM I felt a huge sigh of releif as I took a huge dump. And then right around 3:05 as my mom was updating me on some crazy stuff going on in our family right now, I'm sure I said "Jesus f***ing christ!" several times

    I had no idea that we actually knew what time Jesus died at so I looked into it a little. Mark 15:25 says Jesus was crucified at "the third hour". Because of the time systems that were in use, the actual time Jesus was crusified was either 6 am or 9 am. So my quetion is, what time would that be in the US?

    it doesn't even matter, because the day is likely to be wrong. easter sunday isn't a fixed date, it's the first sunday after the first full moon after the vernal equinox. so i'd say that the odds that any given easter is going to be an anniversary of a specific date 2000-some years ago is 1 in 7 at best, and probably a lot worse, given the variances in eligible sundays.

    and with some people using a julian calendar to calculate easter, and most using a gregorian calendar, there's usually a difference of opinion there, too.

    i call shenanigans on this whole "did you feel that?" approach.

    for even more confusion, look here:

    I guess this is what I get for skimming an article I linked to. :eek: I hadn't even considered that the date wasn't correct. But, hey, it's late here.

    I felt the righteous anger of the usurped Mithras, raging like a bull.

    Was that 3:00 Jerusalem Time, GMT, EST, PST or what? Because I didn't feel anything at any of those (or any other times) as the good atheist I am...

    Though I was a bit nauseas yesterday evening after drinking some soda that had gone bad... maybe that was divine intervention...? :rolleyes:
