Doomsday propheteer Harold Camping puts the kibosh on all the naysayers: End of Days is actually happening on October 21st! Whoops, my bad! And to all of those people that quit their jobs, spent all their money, and/or donated all of their money to Harold Camping’s Family Radio…well…you’re idiots.
Well, that’s not entirely true: Camping insists that the Rapture did begin on May 21st, that we are all under Judgement Day, and that the world will be completely destroyed by October 21st. There’s nothing like gradual destruction to cover your insanity, Mr. Camping.
In his first interview with the press, Camping says:
Yes, I did not have all of that worked out as accurately as I should have or wish I could have had it. That doesn’t bother me at all! I’m not a genius, I pray all the time for wisdom and when I make an error, I say yes I was wrong…I was wrong.
It was to be understood spiritually not physically, and yet the sense of it is still the same, that Judgement has come. The world is now under Judgment where it was not prior to May 21. Spiritually, there is a big difference in the world that we cannot detect with our eyes, but we can know from the bible.
Regarding the New Apocalypse of October 21:
There’s not a new date. There’s not a new date. We’ve already been talking, again and again, about the End of the World being October 21 in 2011. October 21. But we have not emphasized that because the first down payment, or the beginning of it, was the fact that we would see all of these things happening and usher into a five months period of very terrible time [sic].
Well, Mr. Camping, I guess you got your wish: the worst tornado in 60 years happened over the weekend, and there are certainly bound to be more calamities in the next 5 months. But doomsday prophets are always pointing to natural disasters as signs of impending Rapture, the End of Days, and yet we are still here. So while the next 5 months might indeed be terrible, they won’t be any more terrible than any given 5 months in history. You, sir, are simply batsh*t crazy – and trying to justify raking in the cash from vulnerable people because of your silly predictions.
