One could be charitable and say the man’s getting senile. But does senility bring such arrogance, narcissism, and complete disregard for what he wrought on those who were foolish enough to believe him?
And yes, of course. He wasn’t wrong. Didn’t even make a “math error” this time. (In fact, he now says he never made a math error in the first place, not in his 1994 Doomsday prediction, nor anywhere else.) Judgment Day came exactly as he predicted. We simply didn’t notice. Three times now, apparently.
Presumably we will notice — albeit briefly — when the world is destroyed by fire on October 21. That would be just a tad harder to miss.
Carl-Bear Bussjaeger has a pretty hot opinion on all this, including an offer Mr. Camping shouldn’t refuse and questions about those earthquakes — you know, the ones that were absolutely going to happen and be so powerful they’d shove the dead out of their graves?
Sigh … it was funny for a few weeks. But are we really gonna have to go through five more months of this?
