OK, anger it is

Honestly, the sheer cheek of some people is breathtaking.

Not content with his spectacular and very public failure to predict something that will never occur, Harold Camping is now at it again. The Rapture won't be on May 21st 2011 but October 21st 2011, after all that.

Quite why this date is a dead cert when the previously predicted two also were and then weren't is not clear. I'll have a guess though. It has something to do with Harold Camping being a clueless lying fuckwit trying to impose his ridiculous interpretations of a ridiculous superstition on the real world, then desperately trying to cover it up when it all goes tits up because he knows the truly stupid won't miss a beat as they accept this new date and his rationalisations.

I'm going to stick my neck out and say the real world is going to win this one. Again.

The sad thing is that people will still suck this shit right up and pretend its chocolate. Who knows though, maybe it'll be third time lucky. But I wouldn't cancel any plans you have for the 22nd October 2011.

  1. "Non-profit" assets of $104 million in 2009. Someone who interviewed camping on the Friday afternoon before told PZ Myers he could see people vacuuming the office in the background.

    Sounds like business as usual, plus a modest amount of self deception. Who knows how much he made out of this one.

    On the positive side, at least it is made abundantly clear that believers are "disappointed" that the rest of us didn't suffer a gruesome death. Also, the more that this kind of thing happens, the wind it'll take out of the sails of the 2012 crowd.
