You seem very convinced of that. And yet, every day, I see more evidence that the rapture DID take place. But only the really smart people were taken away.

Take a good look around you, and you will realize that I must be right...

Are you sure? It kind of feels over.

TFA: "Several weeks later, however, Camping was hospitalized after suffering a mild stroke and spent months recuperating."

That was God's way of telling Camping, "When the end comes, the end comes. I won't tell you when it happens, it'll just happen."

Camping said he would instead concentrate on deepening his faith building his bank balance through rereading the Scriptures. spouting bullshiat
 
2012-03-09 10:20:48 PM  
Of course it didn't, and it's because we didn't believe hard enough.

Now if you'll all just follow me into my church, please empty your pockets into the faith box, and I'll help you believe harder, FOR GOD.

It can't end yet...I want to see if Pat Robertson's straight-from-God intel was right about who's going to be the next POTUS. Surely he'll tell us...

In a missive posted Thursday on his independent ministry's site, 90-year-old Harold Camping said he was asking for forgiveness for his sin in predicting Judgment Day, and has stopped trying to pinpoint future dates.

Right move, wrong motivation. Still...I'll take it.
 
2012-03-09 10:30:10 PM  
So, does this mean he's gonna give back all that money that the gullible suckers sent him?
 
2012-03-09 10:30:52 PM

Pat Robertson has discovered the Weed. His prophecies from now on are going to be a bit... odd.

"I predict that hot dogs will come in packages of ten, and hot dog buns in packages of eight!"

They've been doing it that way for years.

"Damn... I'm good!"

Yeah. (rolls eyes)

"And now... I predict that Doritos will be the snack food of the future, even Taco Bell will make their taco shells out of Doritos..."

As a matter of fact, they already started to.... oh never mind.

I was expecting him to die the day AFTER the predicted day. Gunshot inflicted by someone who gave all their stuff away...

If the aliens traveled across the galaxy, showed us how to pick up big rocks and told the miyans to not bother writing a calender that goes past 2012, I think that's a clue.
 
2012-03-09 10:41:05 PM  
Sure, I was looking forward to it,

Ugh... that phrase punched me right in the guts. You horrible, disgusting, misguided, uneducated, self righteous, sub-human POS.

"...and will no longer predict global doom" At 90 I don't think he has much time to work with anyways, unless he really doesn't space them out much.

You know, maybe the rapture happened but we're the ones in heaven, and it turns out it's identical to the non-heaven world?

Not that it matters, but Camping always said that the Rapture would be May 21 and the end of the world would be Oct 21. After May 21, he revised what the deal with May 21 and the rapture was, but he said Oct 21 was still on - no change from what he'd been saying for years about Oct 21, 2011.

Again, it doesn't matter, but what would it hurt them to report it accurately? It's not hard.

The thing that gets me about the people yearning for rapture is they are essentially spitting in their own god's face. According to your scripture he created this world for you to learn from and enjoy but that isn't good enough for you. You think it sucks down here so you want to fast track yourselves into big daddy's mansion. You don't care about the lessons. You don't care about the rest of his creation. You only care about yourselves.

Big daddy should write you out of the will and let you live in the gutter for behaving like the insolent, self entitled brats that you are.

FTFA: "but I should have done more careful studying and been more cautious about what I was proclaiming myself.""

Yeah, dumbass, especially that part where Jesus says nobody gets to know when the end of the world is going to happen, not even him. Only god gets the good stuff, and you're not god.

Gotta love smug christians who think somehow they are less crazy for believing that 2000+ yrs later Jesus is going to suddenly somehow appear in the clouds <missmeyet.jpg> and scoop up all the christians who belong to the correct Catholic cult (since thats all protestantism is - a cult of Catholicism which in turn is a cult of Judaism).

But because you don't state a date or time you are somehow totally logical in you rapture beliefs...

As a Deist I've been hoping feverishly that the Rapture would come and take them all away (regardless of their sects) so the rest of us might actually be able to enjoy the lives we've been given.
