Forgive me for being serious in a fun thread for a second...

If the world *doesn't* come to an end on the 21st, if the rapture *doesn't* take place... these morons have been proven beyond any shadow of a doubt to be wrong about their beliefs. And yet, somehow, in some strange alternate universe logic, their beliefs won't take a knock. It will not give pause to even a seconds worth of doubt that hey, we may be wrong to believe this crazy shit.

That kind of faith is so far beyond me that I truly struggle to comprehend it. I mean, I observe it, I understand it exists, I just fail utterly and completely to comprehend how it is actually possible and why it just doesn't implode under the shear weight of stupidity and cease to exist in a universe which abhors contradictions...

And to top it off, we are taught that such belief is a good thing and that Jesus requires that and only that for people to be 'saved'. Xtianity is stupid beyond my ability to comprehend.
I couldn't agree more. Last time Harold Camping's rationaization was that he hadn't read Jeremiah yet. Perhaps on Monday we'll be told he hadn't taken Revelations into account and he'll be busy recalculating. There's a huge FamilyRadio.com billboard near my office and it'll be interesting to see how long it remains in place as a silent rebuke to those doff enough to believe Camping's crap.

You (and I) can't comprehend their faith because we're sane. You only have to look at the photographs of the faithful dishing out pamphlets in Washington to see the lunacy shining out of their fatuous features. These people are mentally ill, so there's no point trying to use rational thought processes to try and understand their faith.

That’s right: “God” will escape Camping’s Crew’s lunacy unscathed and scot-free. It’s completely inevitable. After all, “god” is the place where humanity divided by zero — and keeps doing so, expecting a new result each time but getting only the same absurdities over and over.

all because "GOD" works in mysterious ways and his mind will not be known..... they will blame their "miscalculation" on themselves and witness to the world that they were guilty of the sin of arrogance and that they now repent, and humble themselves in front of all and sundry and then go back and re-calculate the next date..... and the flock will go forth and marvel at the man's humbling and mutter and nod at the mysteriousness of god and his ways...

freck, its tiring to just think about it.... *facedesk*

Possibly not. Perhaps Camping, with much help from his toadies, will arrogate for himself the position of Saviour. At 89, he’s getting on a bit and those dreams of immortal fame may be increasingly hard to set aside.
