Oh, gee ... I suppose that means we won't have Harold Camping to kick around anymore, will we?


That's good -- he finally quit! Of course only after taking money from all his followers.
I was hoping he dropped dead.  I guess Im a bad person.
No, HE is the bad person.
Dammit! I'll miss that idiot's gifts of material.
I wouldn't feel too sorry for Harold Camping. His Family Radio Inc., took in more than $80 million (mostly in donations) just between 2003 and 2007 according to MSNBC. The take from the lastest Rapture prediction dwarfed even that.

He gave up? So he takes the 80 million in has little red wagon and goes home? Interesting.

One has to wonder how his followers feel about being taken to the cleaners like this,especially those who gave up their life savings.


October the 21st was looking to be a normal day. Harold Camping was expecting the end of the world...when all of a sudden (dramatic music)...NOTHING HAPPENED!! (more dramatic music)
If he had really believed the world was going to end, he would feel obligated to keep telling people about it. This means he didn't believe his own predictions either.
Especially when he took a vacation during the first "rapture".
Just because the 'ole scudder Camping has gone off to a retirement home for the deluded bat shit set, doesn't mean there aren't more waiting in the wings to take his place.  If you get rid of one cockroach, it's a pretty good indication there are plenty more hiding under the cabinet ready to come out.
And that's the sad part...Lots more will be waiting for their chance to fleece the sheep and the sheep never have a clue.

Yep...plenty of mentally unstable cretins out there in cybertube land, more then enough to fill Camping's slot, after all it is a very good and profitable bizzyness, the lawd' only helps those who help themselves after-all...allegedly!


You only have to glance at their various web sites to realise these folk are compulsive obsessive ding bats.

All glaring and clashing bright unfortunate colours in text and headlines. and  a cascade of gushing  out of context and out of synch biblical scriptural quotes.


And always with a rambling incoherent commentary slant that somehow stinks of right-wing politics and an unhealthy almost toxic obsession with  Israel, nuclear weapons and Obama.

The calculations....that prove the rapture countdown... are astounding in their utter naivete and more often then not appeals for cash to fight the good fight appear on the last few pages of dribble.


Many...ALL of the predictions have failed, despite fulsome and insistent assertions that this really is it...except it never is...and usually because there seems to be an endless cornucopia of tricky and overlooked scriptural segments that always push the rapture day further down the calender.

Most sites I have found are around the third or fourth attempt to get it right...funnily enough not one has even got in the ballpark...does not stop them requesting cash so they can re-do the figures and parade their new calculations on bill boards around a underwhelmed populace apart from the woo addled mentally challenged that is...who wail and whine about a secular conspiracy.

Sad point is without the really stupid frightened god soaked jeebus drooling masses....these charlatans would just dry up and blow away...maybe become bankers!

But as long as the market is there these con artists will thrive and profit....tis what they do like parasitic fleas they drink the blood of the deluded by scaring the crap out of them!
