My Fairy Tale Trumps Your Fairy Tale

I just found the opening statement of this piece to be…amusing.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports:

Biblical Scholar’s Date For Rapture: May 21, 2011

“That date has not one stitch of biblical authority,” Camping says from the Oakland office where he runs Family Radio, an evangelical station that reaches listeners around the world. “It’s like a fairy tale.”
And guess what folks?  Yep, He has the correct date and it is all in his book of fairy tales.

The real date for the end of times, he says, is in 2011.

The Mayans and the recent Hollywood movie “2012” have put the apocalypse in the popular mind this year, but Camping has been at this business for a long time. And while Armageddon is pop science or big-screen entertainment to many, Camping has followers from the Bay Area to China.

Camping, 88, has scrutinized the Bible for almost 70 years and says he has developed a mathematical system to interpret prophecies hidden within the Good Book. One night a few years ago, Camping, a civil engineer by trade, crunched the numbers and was stunned at what he’d found: The world will end May 21, 2011.

Stunned, I tell you.  So, his magic book has, after many years of study, interpretation and holding his mouth in the proper set, revealed this wonderous secret.

Imagine that.  His prediction about the end of the world were just wrong.  Now why do you think his magical invisible friend would allow him to make such a mistake?  And it does not appear to have impaired his ability to fleece his flock of gullible givers.

So if this is what this fellow and his Christarded followers believe,  I suggest they draw up the legal documents to put all of their possessions in my hands on May 22, 2011.  They won’t need them cause the baby Jebus is callin’ them home.  And if they are wrong it will be a good lesson for them to deal with the world we live in and not pine for some imaginary ‘morry-‘morry land full of clouds and winged wonders.

But I have a feeling they won’t do that.  Faith only goes so far.  Then you have a house payment to make. 

Like it or not.
