After the End of the World: A Harold Camping Redemption Footnote

We’ve spent a little bit of time deriding the absurdity of Harold Camping’s counterfactual prediction that world would incontrovertibly end in Spring 2011, his later insistence in the world would really really end in October 2011, and his consistent call for money to maintain his “soul-saving” operation throughout. It all was rather silly.

But [...]

9 Days Out from End of World, Harold Camping Radio Program rolls out Fundraiser

The media isn’t paying as much attention this time around, but Harold Camping is back, predicting The End Of The World on October 21, just nine days from now:

After “Invisible Judgment Day,” Harold Camping Predicts World’s End October 21

On May 21, 2011, the worldwide earthquake and mass disinterment of corpses predicted by Christian leader Harold Camping failed to materialize.

Dateline: May 21, 2011, 11:00 AM.

Prominent Christian preacher Harold Camping is heard every day on on Family Radio, broadcast from coast to coast. According to him, today is the day of the Rapture and Judgment. When the largest earthquake ever known to mankind shakes the ground. When the Earth spits out the bodies [...]

Waiting for the Quake: Is The Rapture Here Yet?

Today’s the day: According to Christian broadcaster Harold Camping, it’s Judgment Day, everybody.

Strange. There’s no earthquake or massive eruption of bodies from the Earth outside my window.

It is kind of foggy, though.

All Graves Opening in Two Days: Now That’ll Aerate the Lawn

For once an American religious leader has doled out an empirically testable prediction. We’ll be on the lookout for this development:

What will take place on May 21? On May 21, 2011 two events will occur. These events could not be more opposite in nature, the one more wonderful than can be imagined; the [...]
