An Interview With The People Behind the May 21st Rapture Campaign
What I still find shocking is the absolute concrete certainty with which Camping and his followers make their assertions. There’s an old saying, “Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.” Apparenlty, Camping ans his dumbciples really do not understand argumentation, logical fallacies, interpretation, exegetical fallacies, and really, any rational thought process whatsoever. (see HERE for an example of Camping’s ridiculous argument that has these people convinced).
A part of the interview:
Just for the sake of argument, if God does indeed choose to change his mind and delay Judgment Day, how would your group proceed? Is the Mayan date of December 21, 2012 a possible backup date in case May 21st doesn’t turn out to be the end of all things?
No, the Mayan calendar has nothing to do with the Bible. God will not change His mind because He Has given us the accurate date in order for genuine believers to warn their families, friends, and the world at large, as He commands in Eze. 33:7, So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me. There are also no other “back-up dates” because the Bible guarantees this with many proofs and much evidence…it WILL happen, and NOTHING can prevent it.
Once again, just for the sake of argument, if God does change His mind and delay His plans, then would you be willing to conduct a follow up interview with us, or if they do turn out as you have told everyone they will, could we go ahead and set up an interview in heaven?
Because of the utter devastation that will engulf the entire world an interview would be virtually impossible; moreover, by God’s mercy, I don’t plan on being here.
If you feel like losing a few brain cells, or observing how someone can take words and distort them with all of the intelligence of a mentally handicapped cucumber, then head on over to the American Jesus and read the entire interview.
