Back at the beginning of this year radio preacher, Harold Camping, predicted that May 21st was going to be the end of the world (as was posted about here in March:Â End of the World to be on 5/21/11?). Well, needless to say, May 21st came and went and Camping was beside himself at first (Camping Flabbergasted by Failure to Predict Judgment Day) and then a few days later predicted that he was mistaken, and May 21st was a spiritual rapture and that the real one would be on October 21st (Camping says Rapture actually in 5 months) that’s right, tomorrow!
And as if to remind us, The Christian Science Monitor has an article up about Camping and his predictions (this is the third of many), you can read the beginning of the article below:
Harold Camping predicts the end of the world. Again.
Harold Camping may have been exaggerating a bit when he said that the world would end on May 21 this year. But that hasn’t stopped the radio preacher from making another Doomsday prediction, this time for Friday, Oct. 21.
Oct. 21 is the next in a long line of supposed apocalypses, stretching back thousands of years. This time, the prophet of doom is Harold Camping, a radio preacher who received international media attention in May when he predicted that Judgment Day would fall on May 21, followed by months of torment on Earth and an end to everything in autumn.
Judgment Day didn’t bring the promised earthquakes and Rapture, but Camping now says May 21 marked a spiritual Judgment Day and that the world will still end “quietly” on Friday. It may seem odd that Camping’s faith remains strong, but apocalypse experts say that doomsday prophets have often built their entire lives around their end-of-the-world views, and that worldview is hard to shake. For an elderly preacher like Camping, who suffered a stroke in June, apocalypse beliefs may also reflect his struggle with his own mortality.
