Mass Delusion

From Redstate:
On October 22, 1844, more than 50,000 of the approximately 18 million Americans gathered in homes and chapels across what was then America. Many had sold or given away all of their possessions because they were convinced they would have no need for them on October 23 because October 22 was the date affixed by their leadership for the end of the world.

We can laugh at this tomfoolery now but we are by no means immune to its call...
Warning: If the advice of some folks is taken, be aware: Those who click on the Redstate link above could be exposing themselves to the risk of a future government investigation of their views.
