OAKLAND, Calif. – A California preacher who foretold of the world's end only to see the appointed day pass with no extraordinarily cataclysmic event has revised his apocalyptic prophecy, saying he was off by five months and the Earth actually will be obliterated on Oct. 21.

Harold Camping, who predicted that 200 million Christians would be taken to heaven Saturday before catastrophe struck the planet, apologized Monday evening for not having the dates "worked out as accurately as I could have."

If he puts it off long enough he'll eventually die of natural causes and save himself the embarrassment of apologizing.

OK, we HAVE to know.

Who in the world is stupid enough to fall for this a SECOND time! There are some.

Remember, we live amongst liberals and democrats. And almost all of Europe is filled with liberals and of course the middle east is stocked with muslims.

So the earth has no shortage of idiots.

Heck, if you were to meet my ex-wife even once you would toss me into the pool of idiots as well.

"Who in the world is stupid enough to fall for this a SECOND time! There are some."

THIRD TIME. He pulled this several years ago. When it didn't happen he then came up with the May 21, 2011.
I always wondered who was stupid enough to fall for the Nigerian scams. It is the same idiots that believe this nut case.

This preacher may not know it, but his world ended the other day.

Nobody is going to listen to this pinhead again. If they do, they’re even more stupid than he is.

I certainly agree that Harold's prediction was not worked out as accurately as he could have. In other words, he is saying that the prediction of the end of the world is a moving target, always a few months (or a few Millenia) in the future.

And to think that according to the left, global warming was supposed to drown us or broil us all by this time. That is, if the population bomb didn’t do it first. Or nuclear winter.

The AGW cult have misappropriated vastly more money than this guy, and furthermore they’ve been actively trying to enslave us. According to them the South Pole melted last year.

With their ‘facts’ disproved and their belief system crumbling about them, the AGW cult now assert that it’s ‘climate change’ we should be worried about.

The rank-and-file cult members still don’t get it.

The guy is a shameless moron. As is everyone who pushes this un-scriptural pre-trib rapture nonsense.

Add an Obama logo and you would have a great bumper sticker.

1985 He again told his followers in Alameda Church that Christ would return in 1985

Sept 6th 1994

Sept 27th 1994

Oct 1st 1994

Dec 25th 1994 He claimed Dec 25th is Christ’s Birthday.

Mar 31st 1995

Sept 24th 1995

April 3rd 1996

May 3rd 1996

May 21st 2011

And number 12 is the coming failure of Oct 21st
