Undaunted by failure, or perhaps unable to ascertain that his theory holds no more water than a leaky bucket, California radio evangelist Harold Camping, 89, is now claiming that the world will end on October 21, claiming that his earlier forecast of May 21 was off by 5 months.
While we still don't know how Camping has come to his conclusions in the first place, we do know that October 21, a Friday, won't be the day of the Rapture. Only God knows when that will happen.
In unrelated news (sort of), comedienne Lisa Lampanelli made news the other night at a tour stop in Kansas. Ms. Lampanelli promised to donate $1,000 for every Westboro Baptist Church parishoner who protested at her show to a gay-rights charity. By the time the night was over, $50,000 was donated to the charity, a bit of an in-your-face to Rev. Fred Phelps and his haterizers.
Maybe, for his next stunt, Rev. Phelps can make a bet with Camping about when the world will really end, and whether or not Phelps will be taken to Heaven......
