And it appears he’s wrong again.
So what will Camping’s excuse be this time? Some say he’ll probably play the “Nineveh” card — “Because we turned to God and prayed, he changed his mind and spared you. So you should thank us for saving you!”
He could play the faulty math card again, but it seems he’s closed the road on that one —
Camping, however, will be awaiting Jesus Christ’s return for the second time. He said his earlier apocalyptic prediction in 1994 didn’t come true because of a mathematical error.
“I’m not embarrassed about it. It was just the fact that it was premature,” he told The Associated Press last month. But this time, he said, “there is…no possibility that it will not happen.”
So what excuse do you think he’ll use this time?
Not that it matters much. Camping doesn’t really care that he was wrong again. Just like before, he made millions selling the end of the world to the gullible. He’s laughing all the way to the bank.
