I noticed Camping had been remarkably quiet this prediction cycle. Maybe, just maybe, his public humiliation taught him a lesson.

More like he has enough money taken in from the “donations” to retire. wink

I predict he’ll say the world will end in the last week of May of next year, since he seems to go in about six month cycles,

What is very sad is that there are people who still believe in it. Who’s lives will be messed up because of this guy and others like him. Religion is a evil on humanity.

True, and what’s worse is that they’ll A) work hard to come up with some reason such as mathematical miscalculation rather than accepting that the whole this is hogwash, and B) now try to convert as many others as they can to show that if others believe, it must be true.

I submit that according to Stephen, Mr Camping may well be right in his anticipation of the end.

If this reality and existence is a brute fact, there is nothing to prevent it from ending.

Couldn’t have put it better myself, almost certainly the world will end today because there is nothing to prevent it, it could at any moment and there are many moments in a day. grin

One might try checking his bank accounts….if you can find them. You might not have a lot of reason to feel sorry for him then.

Look at the guy’s picture! He looks like the freekin crypt keeper for heaven’s sakes. He’s already got one scrawny foot in the grave but I bet he’s going out in style with a gold lined casket. This was all about fame and money not religion. Just keep pushing the “end” date forward and the sheeple will hand over their hard earned cash. remember the huckster who sold prayer shawls to put on your TV so you could touch them and he would pray for you? “god wants you to have a cadillac and me too”! It’s the same old spiel from Amy McPherson to Jerry Falwell. Oh yea, and the Jim and Tammy Baker show. They raked in millions. Even had air conditioned dog houses for their heavenly pooches. Like P.T. said, “there’s a sucker born every minute”. End faith with reason.
