October 28 is a good day to honor Baal.

In ancient times, the Phoenician sun-god Baal of the Heavens was honored annually on or around this date.  He presided over nature and fertility, and was associated with winter rain.  Sacred sun-symbolizing bonfires were lit in his honor by his worshipers in Syria.  Depicted as a warrior with a horned helmet and spear, he was once worshiped as the principal god on Earth until the Christian Myth ran amok.

Doomsday revision predicts we won't make it to Thursday

Maybe take the day off, just in case? NASA 

Wednesday might be a good day to call in sick and go cross something off your bucket list -- you know, just in case it's your last chance. According to the E-Bible Fellowship, there is a "strong likelihood that October 7, 2015, will be the end of the world."
That's right. You may never watch another football game, see another season of "The Walking Dead" or get to wear your new Sexy Pizza Rat costume (yes, that's a real thing) to a Halloween party.

But don't despair just yet, because the track record of this particular End Times prophecy is pretty unimpressive, as witnessed by the fact that I am currently not typing this story from any kind of purgatory, hell or spiritual far as I know.
See, the E-Bible group's prediction is based on a revision of a far more widely publicized apocalyptic prediction that the Rapture described in the New Testament would take place on May 21, 2011. When the faithful failed to be carried away to a better place on that date, Harold Camping, the California preacher and radio host who had insistently proclaimed it, revised the date by about five months.
