So in case you haven't heard by now, Harold Camping is the preacher who claims to have the calculations set on May 21, 2011 as The Judgment Day, Rapture Day, Doomstay
Quote:-or whatever you want to call it. Camping's apocalypse hype is getting worldwide attention.
Harold Camping, 89, is a former civil engineer and Bible scholar. He is president of the religious non-profit Family Radio based in Oakland, California which fervently preaches the message about the end of the world, now days away. He and a caravan of trucks have been plastering over 5,000 billboards, spending millions of dollars to spread the message.
So, where do they get the funding for all this?
Tax returns indicate that the radio ministry raised a staggering $100 million dollars over the past seven years. The ministry also owns 66 radio stations worldwide valued at $72 million in 2009.
Not to mention donations have soared as well. The contribution comes from radio listeners, according to Tom Evans, board member of Family Radio.

Sounds like Jesus' supposed return has been quite lucrative for Reverend Camping. I'll go ahead and make a prediction here and on May 22nd, we shall see who was right. I say Jesus WILL NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES RETURN ON MAY 21ST 2011!
Sad thing is, I'm right and anyone with any intelligence would agree, but do you think I'll have people send me money for being correct like they have sent this goofball Jesus freak for being wrong? I don't know what religion has that makes people trade their critical thinking skills for bullshit, but it sure has been effective.
