OAKLAND, Calif. -- As crestfallen followers of a California preacher who foresaw the world's end strained to find meaning in their lives, Harold Camping revised his apocalyptic prophecy Monday, saying he was off by five months because the Earth actually will be obliterated on Oct. 21.

Apparently the Lord is having zoning issues and being delayed by Watershed studies?
The man knows no shame.
Please check back with us often for the latest Apocalypse news.
Al Gore and Ted Danson have been wrong about the end of the world, so this guy gets a little leeway....
Just for the record, and I posted this once before on here. Back in 1994 when Harold Camping first predicted this I came to the true saving knowledge of Christ on his radio show, was a Catholic (non church going) at the time and believed good people went to heaven, boy was I shocked to learn the truth. So, for what it is worth, I came to Christ through his radio show, though I hadn’t heard of him in over a decade and was suprised he made another prediction.
I checked my calculations and forgot to carry the decimal point.
But lot's of money!
Oh! At first I thought he was full of crap. Now I see he was simply off by a few months. That explains everything.
Postponed? I thought it started in November 2010 when BS got elected. We are just feeling the pains now. I’m praying for a miracle in November of 2012. Remember it took having Carter as Pres to get Reagan elected.
“the rapture” is one of the most weak points of dogma based on the bible that there is.
LaHaye and Camping both missed it. They are so enamored of their rightuousness that they believe they will be taken up in the end times. They are wrong.
Camping was correct about the day. He said so in a confused attempt to clarify the 21 as a spiritual event. the dirty little secret is that as few as 19 were gathered up - several drunks, a few hermits and about a dozen babies. The rest of us are stuck here for eternity, forced to listen to the blather of holy rollers convinced they understand the Will of God.
He said this Saturday GOD JUDGED ALL and OCT 21 is the end of the world. So he contradicts the rapture that only certain religion sects/cults believe in. So he contradicted himself and his religion.
Everyone I speak with agrees we are in the end times so why can’t this man just say this and not give a date?
You need to broaden your group of friends.
And I thought I’d been left behind on purpose. Not that it came as any surprise...
As sure as the buds on the trees tells you spring is here the wise will know.
The guy is at the age where he’s gonna say what he wants to say and doesn’t give a rat’s butt what you or I or anyone else thinks about it...
HAHAAHAHAHAHAAHAAHAAHAAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Stupid. Really, really, really stupid.
On the other hand, eventually one of you whack jobs will be right. It will be an accident, but you'll be right.
I am not giving a date so how can I be right?
Off by 5 months???
Fool me once shame on you!... Fool me twice Shame on Me!... Fool me thrice sign me up as a Morman!
Anyone who continues to follow this man has no interest in the truth.
Well said picture!
don't talk about Algore like that.
He had always been saying “the end” would come in October 2011. The difference is that in his prior statements he claimed the beginning of “the tribulation” leading up to “the end” as well as “the rapture” would begin on May 21st.
Now he says he was wrong about what we would see, with regard to “the tribulation”, and with regard to the time of “the rapture”, but he remains “still certain” that the end will arrive in October 2011.
Don’t flame me. I am not one of Mr. Camping’s little sheeple. I’m just reporting.
Hey Algore, what have we learned here?
How many naive people were taken in by this false prophet and false teacher?
Harold Camping, you would be wise to repent.
“Everyone I speak with agrees we are in the end times so why cant this man just say this and not give a date?”
As did the early Christians, Martin Luther, etc.
We may be in the end times; we may have another 2000 years to wait.
Christ may come before I finish typing this post; he may come when the great-great-great-great-great grandchildren of all of us are STILL arguing on Free Republic.
It is wiser to say “we may be living in the last days, but whether or not the last days are upon us, it is wise of us to study the Scripture, in context, so that we will better understand what is to come.”
I have already said this in this thread but thanks for the sermon everyone thinks they must give.
