Evangelical Crazy Guy: “Oops. World’s Ending in October. Really.”

Four Horsemen of Apocalypse, by Viktor Vasnets...

In light of the world not ending this weekend, the evangelical broadcaster who predicted that last Saturday would be Judgment Day has now said he miscalculated. He now says God will spare humanity “hell on Earth for five months” and will end the world on October 21.

Harold Camping, the guy who gained international fame as a result of this hoax, now says he feels “terrible” about the mistake. Yeah, I bet he does.

Camping predicted that on May 21, true believers would be taken to Heaven, and a giant earthquake would bring destruction for those left on Earth.

His ministry, Family Radio International, spent millions of dollars campaigning for the End of Days. Some followers donated their life savings to him to help spread the word. Now Camping says he can’t give financial advice to those who lost their life savings preparing for the end of the world.

Camping also predicted the world would end in 1994. Let’s hope that people are done listening to this old fool, eh?
