Early Rapture Open Thread: Harold Camping prepares for The Big One
The Rapture madness is reaching fever pitch, peeps, and CNN interviewed the Master of Disaster, 89-year-old Harold Camping of Family Radio. You can’t make this sh*t up:
Based on your study of the Bible, you have determined that May 21, 2011 is Judgment Day-that God will completely destroy the Earth. What do you predict will happen as clocks turn to 6 pm?
We cannot say emphatically that it’s 6 pm. There’s a lot of information that looks at the probability of 6 pm in any city in the world-when that great earthquake will occur. It could be that it might be just one great earthquake, but there is enough evidence in the Bible that says it will begin at one point in the world, and it could be at 6 pm-that’s a great possibility. Then as it gets to be May 21 in any other country-there will be a great earthquake there.
But we know absolutely, without any shadow of a doubt, that May 21 will be the day.
How are you feeling right now?
Well, I am trembling. I have never been at this place before. When we are only a few days away from the last thing that has to happen-the whole world destroyed by God-I have never been here before. Where can you get direction so you know how to feel?
So earthquakes could occur around the world for 24 hours?
By the end of 24 hours, the whole world will have been destroyed.
The purpose of the earthquake is three-fold: it will be enormously destructive as God is destroying the earth. Secondly, the people who died as true believers, they will come out of their tombs with their glorified spiritual bodies and will be caught up to be with Christ.
And the rest of the world’s population becomes unconscious?
All of the remains of carcasses-the bones-will be thrown out of the grave and the way the Bible describes it, be like dung or manure-because they will be shamed in the eyes of God as a final of consequence of the wrath of God.
