Harold Camping Round-up

May 20, 2011

The first article concerning Harold Camping appeared on Scotteriology several months back, and since then there have been a variety of articles on Camping, his followers, and their many billboards. Seeing as his fifteen minutes of fame are almost up, and hopefully, his time of shame and mockery is just beginning, here is a round-up of some of the more ‘informative’ and popular posts concerning this incredibly misinformed movement.

Sep 4, 2010: Why Accreditation Is Important II

Jan 3: The Second Dumbing

April 28: The Bible Guarantees It!

April 29: Harold Camping Interview

May 11: An Interview With The People Behind the May 21st Rapture Campaign

May 16: The Co-Prophet of the End Times On the “False Prophet” Harold Camping

May 18: Harold Camping Claims Another Victim

May 19: Rapture Week: Blame The Gays!?!

May 20: Rapture Week: CNN Interviews Some Camping Followers

I can’t wait for May 22nd to get here. I only wish that I could be with Camping and his followers when nothing happens…

“But Scott,” you ask, “don’t you know the Bible has guaranteed Camping’s prediction?”

“But it’s wrong,” I retort!

“How do you know,” you inquire?

“Because I am a prophet with an extremely heavy anointing!” And I prophesy, “Thus says the mouth of YHWH, “For surely I know the plans I have for,” says YHWH, “Plans to leave you on earth, and no plans to rapture you on May 21, 2011. Carry on. Look busy.

Seriously, when the Rapture does not happen on May 21st, you can all venerate me and give me money, and I will have proven and guaranteed that I am a prophet of YHWH.

    Going back to your accreditation article – it’s interesting how many people who take these sorts of stances end up having engineering qualifications of one sort or another.

    As an engineer, it’s very interesting to me how many terrorists and dilettantes in many fields are also engineers. Perhaps our job of actually making the world spin around tends to make us arrogant about things.

      I think what tends to happen is that engineers see patterns and designs where there aren’t any.

      So during the dotcom boom, most of my coworkers were day trading during work time, convinced that they could spot the patterns in the market. This is the same urge that reads revelations+daniel and sees all sorts of hitherto unseen patterns.
