    Default Ultimate embarrassment - Harold Camping has passed, but world still here

    Harold Camping was the religious nut who famously predicted about three times that the world would end on or around a specific date. And was wrong each time. I used to listen to his show (for about 30 seconds at a time) out here on 107.9 FM. Least charismatic preacher ever. Like Linus van Pelt with a radio show.

    The World Finally Ends for Infamous Doomsday Preacher Harold Camping


    Harold Camping, the infamous evangelical minister and doomsayer who used millions of his followers' dollars to promote a doomsday vision that failed to come to pass, has finally met his maker at the age of 92.
    Camping first rose to national prominence back in 2010, when thousands of billboards began popping up proclaiming May 21, 2011, as Judgment Day.

    Rapture Predictor Harold Camping: Apocalypse Rescheduled for October 21

    Harold Camping, the radio host who predicted the world would end on Saturday, made his first post-non-apocalypse public appearance on his radio show… Read…



    He also continued to insist that Rapture was still coming, and rescheduled it for October 21.
    Obviously, we're all still here, and Camping did kinda-sorta apologize for getting the world's expiration date wrong yet again.
    "If people want me to apologize, I can apologize," he said.


    Camping suffered a stroke shortly thereafter, and never made another doomsday prediction.
    According to a Family Radio statement, Camping suffered a fall at his home late last month, and subsequently passed away.
    He leaves behind his wife of 71 years.

    Wasn't there stories of people having healthy pets euthanized so they'd be 'reunited' in heaven after the world had ended?

    Yes, they sold their possessions (and gave him the $$$) and killed their pets. I don't understand how these "prophets" get away with it but it seems to happen all the time. They obviously fully understand the human limitless capacity for gullible stupidity.

    Did any of his followers run up huge credit card bills, thinking they would never have to worry about getting a statement at the end of the month?
