Crapture!!!!

Mr Harold Camping’s second date for the rapture came and went without christ coming down from the heavens or a massive earthquake to mark the beginning of the five months of hell on earth. Here’s waht he had to say about this:

“We were convinced that on May 21, God would return in a very physical way by bringing in an earthquake and ushering the final five months of judgment. When we look at it spiritually, we find that he did come.”

So this judgment day was spiritual. but the end of the five months of hell will not be spiritual at all. October 21 will be the very Last Day. Man! On my birthday too! Not fair, god!

How could any same person go on believing such a crackpot?  How many more times does he have to put his gigantic foot in his mouth for people to realize what he really is? There are guys who gave up on medical school believing this crazed man and deciding not to spend their last few months on earth studying, but rather praying and spreading the ‘good word’. I’m sure they weren’t the only ones who screwed up their lives.

Why are the apocalypse sites silent about this now? A few days back they were all talking about how this particular date had solid facts behind it. Then what happened? Why no great quake? No fire from the heavens and what not?

Why don’t people use even a basic modicum of sense when reading about such insane claims? Even if you are a devout Christian and really believe  that christ will come down in a spaceship (space chariot?) someday, why would you believe someone, who has been wrong before, when he gives an exact date for it? How can you continue believing him now when he himself says he misread the substance of the judgment, and that it was ‘spiritual’ not ‘physical’? When he says that he just realized that he was reading the Bible wrong? Can no fact, no matter how strong, even crack the walls of credulity?

About hbhatnagar

I need to fill this up with much better content than I had populated it with earlier. Why I write a blog maybe? I started blogging in 2009 or thereabouts. I was a newly turned atheist and wanted to converse with others of the same persuasion. We're not exactly a big population group in India! It didn't go very well and I sort of lost interest, posting a few things now and then. I got a lot more regular over the last few months and have been posting almost daily since February '15. There were many reasons why I gradually became more regular in posting, but one way or the other, here I am! So this blog has taken shape, being at different points in time my showcase, my comedy club, my art gallery, my book club, my therapist, my close friend, my innermost self....but always my little corner of the world. You are all welcome to visit and I hope you stay awhile! A few points about me because I don't want to lead anyone on(and trust me this does become an issue more often than I'd care to admit). I'm Indian, the brown-skinned variety; if race, ethnicity or skin colour is an issue, you don't have to get to know me any more than what you see on my blog. I'm 40, so if age is an issue, please be informed accordingly. I was a doctor, an ophthalmic surgeon for 10 years before I quit practice.

  1. Very nice. Camping is the worst type of human being–one who prays on the weak will of others. Love your writing. Please think about becoming a contributor for http://atheistconnect.org.
