Sad! Several Suicide Attempts Reported On Failed Doomsday

| Filed under: Sad Sad

Hope this makes you happy, Harold Camping. Where in the Bible does it say these kind of travesties should unfold?

On Saturday, the world prepared - or in our case, completely ignored - for the impending Doomsday as foretold by Harold, who claimed he knew it to be so from the Holy Book. Seeing as we're still writing this post and you're still reading it, we gather the Rapture was more or less a bust. Harold's wife says he's "flabbergasted" that the apocalypse didn’t happen, but what he really should feel is shame over causing such hysteria in his followers, many of which went to extremes to avoid the impending doom.

One elderly man in Taiwan reportedly killed himself just days before the Rapture, fearing that the recent earthquakes and tsunamis were warning signs and that he wouldn't make it. So, rather than wait and see, he threw himself out of building and died on impact.

Another horror story comes from right here in California, where a woman named Lyn Benedetto not only tried to take her own life ahead of the Rapture, but also the lives of her two daughters. She was so fearful that her 11 and 14-year-old girls would suffer during the apocalypse, she allegedly forced her daughters to lie on a bed and then cut their throats with a box cutter. The police arrived just in time to save them, thankfully, but Lyn was arrested and the girls were rushed to the hospital.

There are many more reports just like this, equally as disturbing and heartbreaking, from around the world of people who genuinely believed this man and his doomsday prophecy. Hopefully, people will take some time to reconsider his credibility and take no heed to his claims that NOW we're all going to perish on Oct. 21. No more innocent lives need to be lost to his crazed man's claims.

    Why should he feel guilty, the world is a better place for each moron who offs themselves. What idiots.



  2. 2

    Although these stories are extremely sad to hear about, I don't think you can necessarily blame Harold Camping for the actions of individuals who seem like they might have issues regardless of his "prophecy". If I believe a man in an e-mail that I recieve that says i'll inherit a hefty sum for letting someone put money in my bank account, and all they need is my private info….I don't blame the person who sent the e-mail, I blame myself for being an idiot and giving this person my ss# and bank info.



  3. 3

    I agree that he holds some of the blame, but at the same time those people obviously had problems of their own. How could they consider them selves christians, and how could they follow the Bible, and not know that it clearly states no man knows the date nor time as when the earth will end. Those people chose to ignore that and follow some carzy nut job who has a history of being wrong about this subject before. So I kinda have a hard time feeling sorry for them.



  4. 4

    I did mention on a previous post you made that this kind of thing does tend to accompany doomsday predictions. 2012 is not going to be a fun year for the mental health services.



  5. 5

    These people took a false prophets' word over the word Jesus Christ's. This is sad, because if they had read the very book that this man is basing his predictions off it, they would have read and known the truth for themselves. Jesus clearly states the end of the world will come but that NO MAN knows the time or hour when it will happen. Matthew 24:36.

    So glad I am an atheist! What a crock of shite!!

    If you believe in the invisible magic man in the sky, you're a moron to begin with. If you believe some old man who claims to be in with the invisible magic man in the sky and you kill yourself over it, you're doing the rest of us a favour and removing yourself from the gene pool.

    Every Christian knows that you go to hell if you kill yourself.

    these people who killed themselves were not real believers of God but psychos..

    Re: Deadwing – I believe in God and you are an idiot to be an atheist.

    better to be safe than sorry but then you are to stupid to think of any consequences for not thinking there is a God.

    People need faith to make life better so shut the fuck up!

    Re: 6one9 – so am I - hope you enjoy hell moron!

    Harold Camping sounds like he plagiarized Jehovah's Witnesses.
    Jehovah Witnesses are a spin-off of the second Adventist which all came from the Millerite movement.American war of 1812 army captain William Miller is ground zero for Jehovah's Witnesses.
    Yes,the "great disappointment" of Oct 22 1844 has never died out… it lives on in the Jehovah's Witnesses.
    The central CORE doctrine of the Watchtower,yes the reason the Watchtower came into existence was to declare Jesus second coming in 1914.When the prophecy (derived from William Miller of 1842) failed they said that he came "invisibly".

    Danny Haszard been there

    This idiot was wrong in 1994 and people still believe words that come out of his mouth? Fool me once…



  14. 14

    what a JOKE! Harold Camping should've thrown himself in a river instead of those poor idiots, THAT my friends would be doing humanity a massive favor



  15. 15

    Crazy old fart



  16. 16

    He said "my bad" whadda ya wan't.



  17. 17

    These people suffer from a mental illness (or several) and should be treated.

    People need to heed their own counsel & inner voice; not someone else's; and especially not an 89 year olds, with all due respect to all seniors everywhere. They don't always think things through. If Camping wants to believe something, he certainly can, but mindless lemmings follow off the cliff at their own risk.

    Re: Deadwing – Smile now,cry later.



  20. 20

    that's so fucking stupid because the point of "the rapture" is to judge people on earth and send them to heaven or hell. obviously you're not going to go to heaven if you kill yourself and your daughters.



  21. 21

    Enough coverage of this hillbilly nutbar…..and if he had just read his bible he might saw the scripture Matthew C24 V36 which says: but of that day and hour no one knows, NOT even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone - OK just had to say it :o )



  22. 22

    If thats the case, than the people who believe in Nostradamus 2012 end of the world prediction may do the same on a large scale. Cowards, if you are a believer, stick around and see what happens, i for one, dont believe, but if i did, lets see whats going to happen shall we?
    Its the End Of The World As We Know it……

    Re: Team Kim Richards – Okay.. people like you and these people put out a bad name for us Christians. Christians should NOT Be talking to people like this and treating them this way, even if they are wrong, it is not your place to go out of your way to be rude.

    All I can say is that this "truth" as Mr. Camping and his misguided flock believe is breaking God's heart. Whether you are an atheist, Christian, or otherwise, we all have a right to our own belief's and no one has the right to force them on someone else. That is against Free Will which for the believers of the world know was instilled in man by our Creator. We do not have to agree with each other, but we do have to respect each other.

    All this issue has done is promote hatred, discrimination, and violence. We the human family are better than this and we must be otherwise the Mr. Campings of the world will ruin us all. Whether you are religious or not, there are virtues we as people should remember. They are tenants that differentiate us from the animals. Of these one of the most important is one I remember called The Golden Rule. It is not our place to try to bring forth the end of the world since that will happen well enough on it's own. So many say the antichrist is going to be a person, thing, purplepokedotted people eater that will bring the end. This man and those like him that have popped up over the course of our existence are the clear example that the "antichrist" is very much around and his only purpose is to turn us against each other. There will be no demon that destroys humanity as much as an evil influence that will make man our own destroyers. United we stand as the human family, divided we fall to the chaos and mis-guided interpretations of the evil around us.

    Expect there will be more as we get closer to Oct 21. Should he be held accountable… no. Not his fault if some people are willing to give up their objectivity. They might as well mix up a big bowl of kool-aid and go en masse now. Anyone stupid enough to buy in to this assholes mythology is no great loss to society.

    Re: cmike.hunt – Correct. Didn't any of these people have parents that said to them, "If your friend jumped off a cliff, would you jump off too?"

    Re: Team Kim Richards – Wishing hell on us atheists is a empty threat, we don't believe in that bullshit as well as heaven.



  31. 31

    With exception of the children, it's life simply weeding out the idiots. I say sell more box cutters.



  32. 32

    Re: Team Kim Richards – If there is a hell judging from how hateful you are you'll be joining all us atheists there.
