The Energizer® Bunny™ has nothing on Harold Camping. I read in the paper today that he has now re-re-re-calculated his computations and discovered that the rapture will actually happen on October 21, 2011. Well, the actual physical rapture, because in his defense he claims that May 21 was indeed a date of rapture, but it was spiritual not physical. Whatever that means.
Anyway, he’s decided that the real physical rapture is now going to be on October 21, 2011. Now, I like that prediction a lot better. After all, it would be a real cruel twist of fate for the world to come to an end right before summer vacation starts. I’d have issues with that.
But I wouldn’t sell everything before October, this guy’s track record sucks. According to an article I read, and a few others I looked up, he’s been wrong three (3) times before. (Yer’ oooout!)

- May 21, 2011
But if you need any more evidence that this guy is a charlatan and a fraud, just ask Richard Meyers of abibleanswer.org. Back in February of this year, he offered Harry $1 million for his Family Stations network, to take effect on May 22, 2011. Not surprisingly, Harry didn’t take him up on the offer. So, Meyer’s has made the offer again, this time to take effect on October 22, 2011. He figures Harry is getting a good deal, since the network will be worthless after the rapture.
Harry, gonna put your network where your mouth is?
