Harold Camping said tonight that Judgment Day 2011 will take place on October 21, 2011. In fact, it took place tonight, with Camping in the dock.
In a special edition of his Open Forum radio program, Camping said that he had forgotten that a merciful God would never make everyone suffer, for five months, the extreme privation that he had said would begin on May 21 and end on October 21. He now says that October 21 will bring the last disaster and will end the human race quickly. Camping cited Gabriel Otero, his one-time colleague, as his source for this fresh interpretation of the Bible that now leads him to postpone the dire event. (He failed to mention that he had fired Otero from his network years ago.)
