Though talk about a loss of credibility.
Just five months after declaring that the world would come to a dramatic end on May 21, after believers spent millions on advertising campaigns, after us Weeklings listed our last meals
and watched films to prepare us for Doomsday
, Oakland preacher/prophet Harold Camping
has realized that wasn't the real date. Oopsie.
This time around, he predicts it will be a quiet event.
"I really am beginning to think as I restudied these matters that there's going to be no big display of any kind," the 90-year-old Camping, who suffered a stroke in June, stated in a recent audio message
on his site. "The end is going to come very, very quietly, probably within the next month. It will happen, that is, by October 21."
Which all means, of course, that you only have one week left . . . to scrounge for more free stuff
