Apocalypse not

Harold Camping days before his "rapture" didn't happen.
It’s 11:59pm on Saturday, May 21, 2011—the last moment before it becomes Sunday, and the last timezone on earth enters Saturday. I thought I’d wait until the last possible moment to finally declare that Harold Camping was wrong—again. If it’s May 22 here, that means the “rapture” he predicted didn’t happen.

He said: "God has given sooo much information in the Bible about this, and so many proofs, and so many signs, that we know it is absolutely going to happen without any question at all.” Well, no, he was wrong. I bet he said something equally stupid before September 6, 1994—the last time he falsely predicted “the rapture”.

All of the folks who promoted this really ought to be apologising to the world for having bothered and annoyed us with their nonsense. But I’m sure right now they’re feeling mightily embarrassed, and probably disappointed, so I don’t expect to see those apologies any time soon. Oh well, maybe next time!

I heard that some crazies were slaughtering their animals in anticipation of armageddon. Wonder how they feel now.

I've heard that, too. Personally, I wouldn't be upset if they were "put down humanely", too. :-/
