89-year-old Harold Camping convinced LOTS of people that the world was going to end on May 21, 2011, but that date has come and gone…and we're all still here.
So, why didn't the world end on schedule? Here's what Camping had to say about it:
"It has been a really tough weekend. I'm looking for answers…But now I have nothing else to say."
Maybe his calculations were off? Perhaps a misplaced decimal point somewhere in his apocalypse math? Hopefully he can
make up figure out some answers to make his followers feel better.
Here's what Camping's PR aide Tom Evans had to say about the world not ending:
"You can imagine we're pretty disappointed, but the word of God is still true. We obviously went too far, and that's something we need to learn from."
Another guy who's probably more than a little disappointed is Robert Fitzpatrick, who spent $140K of life savings to spread the word of "the rapture" in NYC. Here's what HE had to say about all of this:
"I do not understand why…I do not understand why nothing has happened."
We're thinking Harold Camping should have stuck to the whole 2012 thing. Then, if things didn't work out, he could have at least shared the blame with those Mayans!
Are U surprised that the world didn't end? How does that make U feel? Happy? Disappointed? A little bit of both? Ha!
