Just another Doomsday




So here it is Oct. 21, 2011, the day Oakland based preacher Harold Camping predicted would be the end of the world after his flubbed prediction that the rapture would occur on May 21, 2011. What the 90-year old Camping didn't specify was which time zone the end of days would take place in. Because it is now May 22 in some parts of the world and there is no end in sight.

Since this doomsday doesn't seem to be working out for Camping either, I wonder if he is going to fall back on December 21, 2012, the end of the Mayan calendar, as the next scheduled doomsday. But since Camping is 90 and had a stroke in June, odds are he won't last until the end of the world anyway.

When Camping does meet his maker, I hope the first thing said to him is, "Hey Harold, we've got this pool going about the end of the world, want in on it?"

I have no sympathy for Camping. What arrogance to predict the end of the world. If believed in sin, that would be right up there. And Camping's punishment should be having to live forever...waiting for the rapture.

well, since the end of days seems to be teasing poor Harold, he will be happy to know that next week (the 28th) he has a chance at it again (the day the Mayan calendar really ends according to Swedish scientist Carl Calleman). And then there's 11/11/11... and of course, the infamous 12/21/12. Lots of opportunity to wish an early death to humans he doesn't know.

Note to self: Publish an "End of Days" Calendar called, "Every Day is Judgement Day!"
