Family Radio and Harold Camping et al who are behind the huge Judgement Day “hoax” as I am calling it are probably feeling kinda silly right now after spending millions of dollars on those scary looking billboards saying the rift of hell will open today.
Well, he still has 16 hours yet to prove us all wrong, but here is my take on everything.
WHAT WERE YOU EXPECTING?! This guy has made predictions before and missed the mark.
Well, it is actually the rapture which was supposed to happen today, which isn’t as bad as Judgement Day, so the sh*t really won’t start hitting the fan until October 2011 which is when God will actually show up to set us all straight according to Family Guy radio.
So in a way, we could all be in the rapture and not even know it. Besides, why would God want you to know. Then you’d run off to help in the nearest soup kitchen you could find.
It seems that no one was left out. Many of the billboards for the doomsday ad campaign were in Spanish, Korean, and I think I even saw one in some obscure African language, so at least we know we are all going to go to the hot place when the time finally comes.
But really, not even Jesus knew when the exact “judgement” was coming, or the date of the “rapture” or “raptor”. I don’t have the exact bible quote, but I am pretty sure God doesn’t want us to know when exactly he is going to surprise us and catch us in all sorts of naughty acts or atoning and selling lots of girl scout cookies to make up for all the bad stuff that we do.
Some say even Jesus may have been a raptor, but that is besides the point.
It seems the doomsday business is pretty profitable if you are looking to make lots of money and sell your soul to the devil. All you need is a creepy voice that sounds like Baphomet and a couple million dollars to sell advertising and you will be sure to piss off God for ruining his big surprise. Here is a video of Harold Camping doing his radio show dealing with a caller that takes issue with people turning over their life saving to Family Radio:
You can almost certainly here this man each night on hundreds of radio station across the country mostly on obscure AM and shortwave stations. Heck, here in Baltimore, you can hear him on a 107.9 FM in Annapolis which has that lurch like voice booming out across the whole state of Maryland.
