I dont believe It haha ( Rapture: Harold Camping issues new apocalypse date)

Quote
The evangelical broadcaster who left followers crestfallen by his failed prediction that last Saturday would be Judgement Day says he miscalculated.
Harold Camping said it had "dawned" on him that God would spare humanity "hell on Earth for five months" and the apocalypse would happen on 21 October.

This guy should be locked up!! Grin

Re: I dont believe It haha ( Rapture: Harold Camping issues new apocalypse date)

I'm afraid that doesn't fit in with me.. I've to to be here for December 23rd 2012... can we reschedule?  Wink  Cheesy  Grin
Seriously this guy spent $100 million advertising Saturday. He sold his radio stations and downsized another.. he actually seemed to be legit about it.
What does get me though is all these end of the world warnings always seem to come from some religious group in the USA. Nowhere else, just the USA where they can get lots of attention.
I think the end of the world warning game is getting a bit too much now. We had it back in 2000 (approx) when we had that eclipse.. that was meant to end it... then it was recalculated for 11 days later to correct a calender correction from centuries previous... there have been so many its not funny any more.
Don't get me wrong, if God is out there then he needs to get in touch and remind us that we need to do this life thing the right way and help each other and but claiming he's just going to destroy everyone seems a bit bonkers (and frankly old fashioned - i'm sure the lord is capable of moving with the times and learning to teach).

I think you have just said what everyone on this forum thinks? The way I see It this guy Is just digging himself deeper Into a hole, It could be worse though, His followers could commit suicide on the day, ( Cant remember what you call them pacts ) He should be gagged because he must be putting fear Into people. Only In America!!

We (the public) should take out a super injunction on him. Grin

No, it must be a "Hyper" injunction - that will even stop MPs talking about it in parliament!

[quote=journeys]"When the end of the world comes, I hope to be in Derbyshire
I don't !!!
I spent last week on holiday in Derbyshire, and was struck at just how miserable and negative the majority of the locals were.  Undecided
Now it all makes sense, the locals obviously knew that they have to wait ten years longer than anyone else for the end of the world, and are determined to spread doom and gloom to any outsiders for whom the end of the world will be somewhat of a surprise !

Re: I dont believe It haha ( Rapture: Harold Camping issues new apocalypse date)

the problem with creeps like camping is that folk take them seriously.  several have gone so far as to sell up everything in anticipation - and send the proceeds to this crook.  one mother was so distraught at what she thought her daughters were facing that she tried to slash their throats and cut her own.  more stories along these lines are coming out of america.
the ffrf has brought proceedings against this perncious old fool.

The Isle of Wight would also work as its time-locked to 1947.  Grin
