That was awkward ...

So says the new American billboard advertisement, following the no-show of Judgment Day last weekend.

Harold Camping is undaunted however, saying that his predictions have been right, except that his interpretation was more literal when it should have been spiritual.

"Judgment Day on May 21 did come", said Camping. However, he clarified that the Judgment Day arrived in a spiritual sense rather than manifesting physically.

"On May 21, this last weekend... is where the spiritual aspect of it really comes through. God again brought judgment on the world. We didn’t see any difference but God brought Judgment Day to bear upon the whole world."

Personally, I would go with the new billboard ... but hope that no-one spends $10m on the follow-up advertising campaign (like Harold Camping did before the 'big day').  I think that there are much more deserving causes in the developing world for that kind of money.


  1. Oh it just gets better (or worse).

    Not only did I get the figure wrong - it was $100m (yes - one hundred) that was spent on advertising.

    But not some people are thinking about whether they can sue Harold Camping for getting it wrong!

    Only in America...

  2. Hi Benny,

    With you on this one ... $100m on what? Not being able to read one of the clearest passages of Scripture!

    Crazy, crazy world ...
