Harold Camping : I F*cked Up

by duncanr

false prophet ?

Harold Camping – remember him? – serial doomsayer who keeps prophesying the end of the world on dates gathered from his study of the bible?

He has apologised for the fact we are all still alive instead of spending an eternity in Hell as he predicted.

He has acknowledged it was sinful of him to presume to know the mind and purpose of the Lord – Hhmmm, I guess that means he has blown his chance of being raptured.

The failure of the world to end on May 21st last year as he predicted wasn’t all bad news, however.

True, that billions of people weren’t killed was . . .a tad disappointing but on the plus side many more people were made aware of the bible as a consequence of the wide publicity given to his ‘end of the world’ prediction and might be encouraged as a consequence to read it who might otherwise have not considered doing so.

Hhmmm, no doubt those folk Camping thinks might start reading a book demonstrably inaccurate in terms of predicting the end of the world are the same people likely to buy a make of car that has received wide publicity over mechanical faults?

  1. One of these nutters is going to be right one of these days, but it won’t be for a billion years and the sun will have turned a delicate shade of pink by then.
    I’m sure you’ve seen this, but it’s a pretty funny take on the Mayan calendar. http://www.google.ca/imgres?imgurl=http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_I2uQkGxIykM/S0F6V30uyfI/AAAAAAAAIVA/Ea3mbcuskcw/s400/calendar%2Bbizarro.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.soberinanightclub.com/2010/01/mayan-calendar.html&h=400&w=337&sz=62&tbnid=sxB6e_lTt6GGmM:&tbnh=82&tbnw=69&zoom=1&docid=ZJ4eh1rbTNVtFM&hl=en&sa=X&ei=pOheT83oDvDKiQKd853YBA&sqi=2&ved=0CC0Q9QEwAQ&dur=1619
    Holy crap, that link is ridiculous. I’ll bitly next time. Sweet lord.

  2. Hilarious! In his prediction of things to come (first the fall of Jerusalem to the Romans, then the Rapture), Jesus clearly states that not even he knows the day or hour of the end, that only the Father in Heaven knows. So, from a Christian perspective, doomsayers like Camping second-guess Christ–and to second-guess Christ is really a form of blasphemy.
