Kook Says Fellow Nutjob Harold Camping Was "Close"

And you thought you were safe now that May 21 has come and gone, didn't you? HA!

Though Doomsday prophet Harold Camping has made a “comedy of errors,” this is no time for ridicule because he is close to right on most of his points. “Close” doesn’t usually get credit in anything but horseshoes, yet to scoff at a time that the Bible says scoffers would come puts us on the wrong side of the ledger, and since this is about “the end of days,” we would do well to consider how close to right he may have been.-Pastor Camping Is Not Far Off

So what's the new date?

...Could May 26, like the 7th day of Noah, be HUGE?

Camping himself is said to be "bewildered" and "mystified"...

Camping is "a little bewildered" and "mystified", Tom Evans, a board member of Camping's Family Radio International said on Sunday, according to ABC News.

Evans said that according to Camping's wife, the radio broadcaster has no intention of speaking or issuing a statement on Monday.

She described him as being "somewhat bewildered" and "mystified," Evans said.

Evans said his personal opinion is that the public is owed an apology and he wants the board to meet with Camping to meet to decide on what do next.-Harold Camping 'Bewildered' After Failed Doomsday Prediction

I believe the guy toward the end of the following video is Robert Fitzpatrick, the poor fool who spent $140,000 buying ads to publicize Camping's day of doom. As he said, "I don't understand why nothing is happening. It's not a mistake. I did what I had to do. I did what the Bible said."

Could the lesson be to ignore the Bible and stop listening to others and instead use some common sense and come to informed conclusions before taking major actions that could ruin your life if you turn out to be wrong?

Damn, that was a long sentence. Sorry about that. Would you believe me if I said I wrote it that way because I was just doing what the Bible said? I didn't think so...

    Well, horseshoes and hydrogen bombs.
