Classic Rant #511 (May 24, 2011): The End of the World ... Postponed
Harold Camping, that idiot so-called preacher who predicted that the world was going to end on Saturday, May 21, has done it again.
He now claims his prophecy was off by five months, as "Judgment Day" will now come on Oct. 21.
Don't you get the impression that this fool is like somebody you hire when you need some service done in your dwelling? You ask him when he is going to be there, and he says, "Sometime between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m."
And also, you have to question this idiot's prediction even more. He said that on May 21 and now October 21, that 200 million Christians would be taken to heaven before the earth was destroyed.
Well, where does that leave me? I guess I am a heathen, because I am Jewish.
This dope was reportedly so upset at his miscalculation that he left home with his wife and took refuge in a hotel.
The scariest thing about this whole thing is that Camping actually has people who believe him--and a lot of them.
Would they have been happy if the world ended? How would they show their happiness?
Were they disappointed that they could still see the faces of their loved ones after 6 p.m. on the supposed end of the world day? Were they disappointed that they could see the faces of their children?
I don't get this whole thing at all, I really don't.
And again, what scares me the most is that this idiot actually has people who believe him.
They are as mentally ill as he is, and the media loves this, they really do. They cover it as if it were as important as ...
Lindsay Lohan's next arrest.
And I am guilty, too, because I have devoted a whole Rant to this jerk and his prediction.
But then again, according to Camping, I can't be saved and I am going to hell anyway.
Or at least I am going down when the world does on October 21.
Mark your calendars--we only have five more months to go.
And it will go really quick.
