Harold Camping Tones Down Predictions Ahead of October 21st Supposed Rapture Date

Trust this man. He knows what he's talking about.

You may remember everyone’s favorite predictor of the Rapture date, Harold Camping.  His forecast that the Rapture was going to take place on May 21, 2011, according to his complicated algorithms and calculations, caused the people that subscribe to his logic to do some pretty insane things.  They used their life savings to go around the world spreading the word, only to find on the big day, well, nothing happened.

Never fear.  Camping has since revealed the reasons that the May 21 date passed without incident is because it was not a material Rapture but a spiritual event that is leading up to, you guessed it, October 21, the big day.  Only the once self-righteous and certain Harold has toned down in rhetoric in the days leading up to the next prediction.  He now uses words like “probably” and “maybe” in his surefire explanations of tomorrow, the day he says will be “the final end of everything.”  Never mind he’s already missed this not once but twice before.  Don’t quit your day job just yet.
