Much ado ...
I wasn’t sure if I would be here to post anything, what with evangelist Harold Camping’s assertion that the Rapture was to occur at 6 p.m. May 21, but here I am.
I know the blogosphere and Twitter were abuzz with quips and jokes yesterday about Camping’s obvious failure to calculate the end of world accurately.
Camping, an Oakland, Calif., evangelist, had said, for years, that May 21, 2011 would be the date of the Rapture, when Christ would come to Earth and take up to Heaven all believers. Camping said an earthquake would happen on this date and that several months later, in October, the world would end.
In short, May 21, 2011 was to be the beginning of the end.
Friday, before I left for work, I read one last story/commentary about Camping’s predictions and I thought the author’s viewpoint was interesting.
I’d like to share it here: “Desiring the End of the World.”
