Camping Flabbergasted by Failure to Predict Judgment Day


Joining many of his own followers on Sunday morning, Harold Camping, the radio and TV televangelist that predicted that Judgment Day would be May 21st, 2011 was seemingly flabbergasted by the fact that the rapture did not occur.

I mean, I spoke about my feelings on this in a March 10th, 2011 posting entitled:End of the World to be on 5/21/11? and I was contact by someone who expressed their opinion about what I wrote (which you can view at the bottom of that posting from March 10th) and I thought long and hard before I responded. But I think now is as good of a time as any to say that what I said was right. This was such a waste of time, people who believe in this prophesied doomsday scenarios are all destined to be false. I’m fairly certain that when December 21st, 2012 comes along, we’ll all be waking up on the 22nd laughing about it.

Anyway, has the article about Camping:

Doomsday prophet, followers ‘flabbergasted’ world didn’t end

By Liz Goodwin

It’s hard to feel bad for someone whose doomsday predictions caused so much anxiety, but 89-year-old Harold Camping’s recent admission that he’s “flabbergasted” the world didn’t end last weekend sounds somewhat pitiful.

“It has been a really tough weekend,” Camping said Sunday, after emerging from his Alameda, California home for the first time to talk to a reporter from the San Francisco Chronicle. “I’m looking for answers … But now I have nothing else to say,” he said, adding that he would make a full statement today.

Camping’s PR aide, Tom Evans, told the L.A. Times that the group is “disappointed” that 200 million true believers weren’t lifted up to heaven on Saturday while everyone else suffered and eventually died as a series of earthquakes and famine destroyed the Earth.
