Countdown to Armageddon! (by PsiCop)With even the venerable Time magazine idiotically weighing in (WebCIte cached article) on Bible scholar religionist crank Harold Camping’s prediction that the Rapture will occur on May 21, 2011 — followed 5 months later by The End Of The World on October 21, 2011 — I* thought it only appropriate that I put up a countdown to Camping’s apocalyptic predictions (about which I’ve blogged a couple times already). I’ve taken it down since then since there doesn’t seem to be any point in rubbing Camping’s face in his own catastrophic failure.

Update: It’s just after midnight on the 22nd, as I type this. Harold Camping’s Armageddon has mysteriously failed to occur. For the umpteenth time in his prophecy-spewing life, Camping has been proven wrong. Can we finally now understand — once and for all — that all “Biblical prophecy” is bullshit? It’s time for all those “End Timers” out there to put away their threats of imminent apocalypse and just give it a fucking rest already.

* OK, so it wasn’t I who thought of putting up a countdown … it was Mark over at the Skeptics & Heretics Forum at Delphi Forums.
