    Harold Camping Revises Apocalypse Prediction For Friday


    He's at it again;

    Remember earlier this year when the world didn't end?

    Like every other doomsday prophecy throughout history, the May 21st rapture promised by Oakland-based Family Radio network owner Harold Camping never materialized. The 90-year-old, self-styled prophet now claims the world will end by this Friday and not with a bang, as previously predicted, but rather with a whimper.

    "The end is going to come very, very quietly probably within the next month...by October 21st," said Camping in a radio address delivered earlier this month.

    Anyone that has ever read the Bible knows (Matthew) that Jesus himself didn't even know when the "end times" would arrive. Only the Father in Heaven knows that.

    This guy is a idiot!!!

    It is hard to imagine that anyone pays any attention to this guy. Lets see, I think this is his 3rd or 4th attempt to predict the end of the world. There have been others who have also attempted to predict it. Anyone who does is setting themselves up for a massive let-down.

    Even Y2K was a huge let down. I knew plenty of people who were convinced we were going to be without electricity and running water. They were convinced the banks would collapse, the economy would collapse, and everyone would have to flee to the hills to survive. I took very little notice of them, and just kept on living life as usual. Being in the computer field, I knew they were full of bull and had watched too many movies. So many people believe that computers control everything. However, for the types of disruptions people expected, they believed computers could cause all of the power plants to stop making power, all of the traffic lights to fail, all of the water valves to close and the pumps to shut down, etc. None of these things are controlled by computers and even if they were, there would be manual overrides. I knew the banks had already taken Y2K into account and addressed any database issues. And guess what? I got up on January 1st, 2000 and went about my daily life free of incident.

    I just don't take doomsayers very seriously. I think in most cases they have self-serving reasons for their predictions.

    Doomsday, the apocalypse end days or whatever you want to call it will never happen. The blank may hit the fan but the world will never come to an end.

    Oh it's going to end. It just won't be for several billion years, when the sun goes red giant and incinerates Earth. I seriously doubt we'll be around given the gauntlet of various extinction events we'll have to dodge, never mind doing ourselves in.

    I predicted that Y2K would be nothing. That not even one plane would fall from the sky.
    But, I predict now that we're in for bad times ahead.

    Don't get trapped by "Normalcy Bias"

    The normalcy bias causes smart people to underestimate the possibility of a disaster and its effects. In short: People believe that since something has never happened before... it never will. We are all guilty of it... it's just human nature.

    The normalcy bias also makes people unable to deal with a disaster, once it has occurred. Basically... people have a really hard time preparing for and dealing with something they have never experienced.

    The normalcy bias often results in unnecessary deaths in disaster situations. For example, think about the Jewish populations of World War II...

    As Barton Biggs reports in his book, Wealth, War, and Wisdom: "By the end of 1935, 100,000 Jews had left Germany, but 450,000 still [remained]. Wealthy Jewish families... kept thinking and hoping that the worst was over...

    Many of the German Jews, brilliant, cultured, and cosmopolitan as they were, were too complacent. They had been in Germany so long and were so well established, they simply couldn't believe there was going to be a crisis that would endanger them. They were too comfortable. They believed the Nazi's anti-Semitism was an episodic event and that Hitler's bark was worse than his bite. [They] reacted sluggishly to the rise of Hitler for completely understandable but tragically erroneous reasons. Events moved much faster than they could imagine." This is one of the most tragic examples of the devastating effects of the "normalcy bias" the world has ever seen.

    Just think about what was going on at the time. Jews were arrested, beaten, taxed, robbed, and jailed for no reason other than the fact that they practiced a particular religion. As a result, they were shipped off to concentration camps. Their houses and businesses were seized.

    Yet most Jews STILL didn't leave Nazi Germany, because they simply couldn't believe that things would get as bad as they did. That's the normalcy bias... with devastating results.

    We saw the same thing happen during Hurricane Katrina...

    Even as it became clear that the levee system was not going to work, tens of thousands of people stayed in their homes, directly in the line of the oncoming waves of water.

    People had never seen things get this bad before... so they simply didn't believe it could happen. As a result, nearly 2,000 residents died.

    Again... it's the "normalcy bias."

    We simply refuse to see the evidence that's right in front of our face, because it is unlike anything we have experienced before.

    The normalcy bias kicks in... and we continue to go about our lives as if nothing is unusual or out of the ordinary.

    Well, we're seeing the same thing happen in the United States right now. We have been the world's most powerful country for nearly 100 years. The U.S. dollar has reigned supreme as the world's reserve currency for more than 50 years.

    Most of us in America simply cannot fathom these things changing. But I promise you this: Things are changing... and faster than most people realize.

    The thing that troubles me most is people associating this man with Christianity.
