May 27 will be the End…

…of this guy’s credibility as a prophet.

You’d think that after Camping’s double flameout guys like this would learn.

On the bright side, if he’s right, that means our Lord will return right in the middle of our annual camping trip at our Hidden Island Redoubt. I rather like the idea of the New Heaven and the New Earth erupting into this passing world right in the middle of my vacation and me never ever having to go back to work again. Go directly from earthly paradise to heavenly paradise! Do not pass Go. Do not collect $200. Works for me.

  • I stopped trusting this guy after the Lord failed to return in time to prevent me from taking the Ph.L. French exam in Rome. I mean, come on, if the Lord won’t come back in order to spare me the horrors of having to learn French. . .what could possibly goad him into coming back?!

    Sorry Mark, but you are a Papist/Romanist, so if Camping is right there will be no heavenly paradise for you or me.

    If Hidden Island Redoubt is anyplace close to Portland, swing by St. John Fisher for some pancakes on the way home (my new KofC council will be having a breakfast June 3rd there, in between 9:00am and 11:00am mass).

      Nope. No island near Portland. Think “Puget Sound”.

        Figured as much, but I had to get the plug in! Dates were just too good. Of course, if the end of the world happens, at least I won’t have to hear men from my parent council grumbling about how the new council didn’t have a bank account in time to pay them back for what they spent on the last breakfast.

  • Well, in fairness to Camping, he said the world would be destroyed by earthquakes starting in New Zealand, and there was some seismic activity at the right moment.

    If Jesus comes back next Sunday I will be SOO annoyed as I’m supposed to travel to Wisconsin to see my Benidictine friends on the 31st.
