So, apparently my discourse yesterday about how lucky we all are to have survived the rapture may have been a touch, shall we say, premature.
Now, according to The New York Times, Harold Camping, the man who has been the public face of the organization touting the end of the world and the second coming of Christ has made an official statement revising the date of judgment.
Camping Officially revises date of rapture to October 21st of this year.
Alright, so we've got another 5 months here party people. Get your kicks in (for real this time).
What I find truly interesting is the articles' mention of how Camping and his organization will no longer be paying to continue advertising via billboards across the country. Also, with the offhanded surety that can only be granted with that special breed of senility, Camping has announced that he will no longer be providing interviews on the subject, proclaiming "The world has been warned. We don't need to talk about this anymore." Coincidentally, Camping is also refusing to return any of the donations he received for his campaign from his flock of believers.
So don't empty that bomb shelter of your MREs and fresh water quite yet. Looks like we still might have our chance to get our kicks out on Route 666.
