Doomsday Preacher Harold Camping Wrong Again! No Rapture!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Doomsday prophet Harold Camping`s revised prediction that the world would end on Oct. 21, 2011 turned out, once again, not to come true.

According to the preacher`s prediction, which was revised after his May 21, 2011 prophecy failed to materialize, Christians would ascend to heaven, while sinners would be left behind to suffer five months` worth of natural disasters before the earth ignited into a fireball."

Harold Camping has a penchant for predicting the end of the world when he`s running short of funds, the kooky preacher has predicted doomsday as many as 12 times.

When Camping predicted the Rapture would take place on May 21, 2011 he created a media frenzy. Reporters were chasing down Camping`s followers for interviews, and party people took advantage of the commotion to throw "End of the World" parties.

This time Camping might as well have predicted that he would have a bowel movement on Oct 21, the controversial radio broadcaster was ignored by the media.

Camping has succeeded in doing what skeptics, atheists and agnostics have failed in accomplishing: Totally discrediting the notion of a Rapture.

Jesus isn`t going to rapture Camping from the Earth, but the Grim Reaper will soon come to fetch the 90-year-old scam artist.
