The End of the World Is Still Coming!

Well, now you know --
   Harold Camping, the engineer-turned-broadcaster of the Family Radio International, has amended his earlier announcement that the world was going to end on May 21: he was wrong. Sort of. Not that the world is going to end -- he's says he's still right on that -- but it's not going to happen slowly, over coming months, until Oct. 21, when the whole world bursts into a fireball.
   Naah. It's all going to happen -- and fast -- on October 21!
   There you go.

Camping's explanation is here. In short:
   "We have to be looking at all of this a little bit more spiritual, but it won't be spiritual on Oct. 21," he said. "Because the Bible clearly teaches that then the world is going to be destroyed altogether." When asked if his group would return donations slated for publicizing the end of the world, he said, "We're not at the end. Why return it?"

So see? He wasn't wrong. It just happened spiritually, instead of physically. (Responses to Camping's lack-of-Rapture are here. More here, as well.)
     I'm just waiting for his explanation on Oct. 22.
