Did it ring any bells? Yes, Harold Camping’s end of the world (www.familyradio.com).
The 89-year-old Harold Camping had predicted that today would be the end of the world on National Public Radio.
Of course, he had done it in the past too, had miserably failed in 1994, for which he allegedly admitted that he had not studied the book of Jeremiah and hence arrived at the wrong date then!
Well, here we are on the dooms day, still very much alive. Let us see what his response would tomorrow (unless he does not die or commit suicide ) to callers and those who believed his prediction and acted upon it by selling all they had and ‘being ready.’
He is a live proof of people who could be “sincerely (or even deceitfully) wrong.”
