Posted on 05/23/2011 3:59:47 AM PDT by don-o
Harold Camping, the Oakland, California-based broadcaster who made a failed prediction about a cataclysmic doomsday said on Sunday he would make a statement on or by Monday night in a "public forum" to explain himself.
An IBTimes reporter met him at his home in Alameda, Calif., and said he would explain in the forum tomorrow.
When asked about his silence since the prediction, Camping said he needed more time seeing that his major prediction had failed, and wanted to think and recover, calling the event "a big deal."
Camping, 89, has not been heard from since Saturday.
In 1994, Camping also predicted that doomsday would come, although he admitted at the time there was a miscalculation.

Darn it, he forgot to carry the one! It’s actually going to occur on May 21, 2021! Yep, that’s the ticket!
Unless he publicly apologizes and repents for his sin of presumption - and donates the $100mm he’s sitting on to actual worthy causes - then nothing he says is worth hearing.
That silly old man named Camping,
Must now spent his hours revamping,
His rapture predictions
That must be depictions
To the real one that right now is ramping!

I thought they maintained a cash-poor operation.
But Camping is such an enlightened man... if we define enlightenment as the ability to separate fools from their money. (/sarc)
Not according to their IRS filings.
Exactly and I will go further... he needs to be in jail.
The “forum” in which he needs to worry about “explaining himself” is the one that will take place with God immediately after his death, which, at 89, isn’t far away.
Their 2009 IRS filing shows $1.5 million in cash.
"But a prophet who presumes to speak in my name anything I have not commanded him to say, or a prophet who speaks in the name of other gods, must be put to death."
Or a position within the Dimocrat party
“Camping said he needed more time seeing that his major prediction had failed”
He must still be...Up in the air about it.
And $34 million in public traded securities, nearly $57 million in other assets that are not land or buildings.
A total of $104.8 million in assets. Hardly a shoestring operation.
It also shows $35mm in investments in securities and $56mm in other tangible assets.
So, he's sitting on $92.5mm and not $100mm.
$10 says this clown will claim he just did it to test peoples faith or raise their awareness or some such lame claim.
my check is in the mail....you win
To me, "sitting on" implies a lack of use, and revenue these investments and other assets are employed to offset expenses, and, even then, only to a small extent compared to the total expenses. Most of the revenue is donations.
It's unclear from IRS filings what portion of those assets are actually employed in the business operations, but I think that our difference is in what is meant by "sitting on" them. I wouldn't say that a business that owns employee desks is just "sitting on" those assets. The chairs, however.... ;-)
