Just because I find this very humorous dosen't mean that it should go in Humor.
Here’s something we appreciate the Associated Press covering, in the interest of humanity: “Exley is part of a movement of Christians loosely organized by radio broadcasts and websites, independent of churches and convinced by their reading of the Bible that the end of the world will begin May 21, 2011.” Well, there you have it! Those heathen Mayans, whom God refused to educate about His existence, thought they could pull a fast one on history’s winningest religion, but they can’t! While Mayans lounge around, satisfied with their armageddon, getting drunk on llama wine and eating aloe steaks, the Protestant Work Ethic has overcome. Let’s have a look at this new, improved, even more impending end-of-days!



I dunno; maybe Humor is the best place for it, after all.

One day after my birthday. I guess I should thank the Big Guy for allowing me one more alcohol soaked day of debauchery before I go.

Previously, he said 1994 was to be the end of the world.

http://www.bibleandscience.com/otherviews/camping.htm

I can't find anyplace where Harold explains his reasoning. I would like to hear what he says about Matthew 24:

"Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away. 36 The Day and Hour Unknown “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son,[f] but only the Father."


“Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. 43 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. 44 So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him. 45 “Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom the master has put in charge of the servants in his household to give them their food at the proper time? 46 It will be good for that servant whose master finds him doing so when he returns. 47 Truly I tell you, he will put him in charge of all his possessions. 48 But suppose that servant is wicked and says to himself, ‘My master is staying away a long time,’ 49 and he then begins to beat his fellow servants and to eat and drink with drunkards. 50 The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of. 51 He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.


He seems to know something Jesus does not.

Is this just to get attention, money or is he just plain crazy?

Harold Camping will be wrong, just like William Miller was wrong, just like Matthew 24 was wrong. Matthew 24 had Jesus talking to his deciples in response to a question. Quite literally describing what would happen within their days. But... we also know that Matthew was not written until 70-80 CE. So what was the authors intent for Matthew 24 when it was already clear at the time of the writing that most if not all of the disciples were already dead. In my opinion, just like with Nostrodamus, the best we can do with prophecy is to predict the past. Which the author of Matthew did a lot of in his book. So no, I do not believe that Camping will be right, just like Miller and the author of Matthew.

It seems that Satan was let loose in 1988. It all makes sense now.

I love it when a specific date is given so we can point and laugh as it passes by without catastrophe.

But I think they've already hedged their bets on that score. I seem to recall that some have said that if the date comes and goes and they don't get raptured, it means that they were simply not called, not that it didn't happen. So, I guess if nobody in the world disappears it means it happened, but none of us were worthy. They'll rationalise their way out of it somehow, and I guarantee that none of them will doubt their faith.

He has a way with words.
999 CE - As anyone who is anyone knows, this particular date was a grand doozy of apocalyptic wankership ...


edited to add: Holy crap! and this...
1868 CE - The Reverend M. Baxter of the Church of England had more than a few screws rolling about wild and free. In brief, he was a paranoid, French-detesting, anti-papist, anti-Semitic, apocalyptic, devil-phobic, sin-hysteric, hypergraphic, ranting wad of wankery. ...

Like Douglas Adams (The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy), I too am fond of hard deadlines. "I love the whooshing sound they make as they go by."

Here we are Oct 21 and Harold has disappeared, gone into hiding again, to avoid the zero number of people who should be piss that they bought into his Bible bullshit second coming. I don't know why he's hiding. Only the most feeble minded half wits could have possibly been gullible enough to believe his crock of crap AGAIN. We been through this so many times hopefully some people out there who get sucked into this every time should be getting a clue but that's no guarantee. As the song says, popularized in the 60' by Peter ,Paul & Mary, "Where Have All The Soldiers Gone" , "Oh when will they, ever learn". One answer few filled in is for way to many, "never". SS

There are only two types of religious people, the deceivers and the deceived. SS
