In New York, at least one of Camping's followers continued to hold out hope Judgment Day would come.

Retired Metropolitan Transportation Authority worker Robert Fitzpatrick, 60, said he spent more than $140,000 of his savings on subway posters and bus shelter advertisements warning of the May 21 Judgment Day.

Just turned on Family Radio. Harold Camping is on.

He's denouncing fornication and quoting the New Testament in the original Greek. Must be a re-run.

Good to hear that you're still with us, MLynn. What are you going to watch? The Ten Commandments?
Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

I don't know about MLynn, but I'm going to finally sit down and listen to those hundreds of hours of "teaching on the Bible" available online or available for download on the Judgment Day website Abdul posted a few posts above this one. I didn't have time to listen to them in the few days before the Rapture. Now that the world has ended, however, apparently I've got nothing but time. Ah, thanks, Judgment Day. Now I can get all the shit done that I couldn't while the earth was still turning.

Now I'm in trouble with the wife again. I read that as Primates of the Caribbean.

Time for some new spectacles, methinks.

Harold Camping 'flabbergasted'; rapture a no-show
...

But on Sunday, almost 18 hours after he thought he'd be in heaven, there was Camping, "flabbergasted" in Alameda, wearing tan slacks, a tucked-in polo shirt and a light jacket.

Birds chirped. A gentle breeze blew. Across the street, neighbors focused on their yard work and the latest neighborhood gossip.

"I'm looking for answers," Camping said, adding that meant frequent prayer and consultations with friends.

"But now I have nothing else to say," he said, closing the door to his home. "I'll be back to work Monday and will say more then."

Camping's followers will surely be listening.

Got it. The next stage is here.

Radio host says Rapture actually coming in October
Atlanta Journal Constitution
ALAMEDA, Calif. — California preacher Howard Camping says his prophecy that the world would end was off by five months because Judgment Day actually will come on October 21.

The independent Christian radio host said Monday the apocalypse will come five months after May 21, the original date he predicted.

Camping says he felt so terrible when his doomsday prediction did not come true on Saturday that he left home and took refuge in a motel with his wife.

Camping, an 89-year-old retired civil engineer, appeared publically for the first Monday night.

Rather than give his normal daily broadcast, Camping made a special statement before the press at the Oakland headquarters of the media empire that has broadcast his message.

Camping: World is Still Ending on Oct. 21

Post by Anaxagoras » Tue May 24, 2011 1:50 am

Live blog of Harold Camping answering questions.

World still ending on Oct. 21. May 21 was Judgment day. But it was a "spiritual judgment" not "physical." Not giving money back. Not taking any responsibility for followers' actions.
Today 10:04 AM "The World Has Been Warned. My Has It Been Warned!" says Camping

Camping says there will be no more billboards or street preaching, but the world is still ending Oct. 21.
Today 10:05 AM "May 21 Was A Spiritual Coming, Where We Had Thought It Was a Spiritual Coming."

"It won't be a five-month terrible difficulty...that we have learned," said Camping. Instead, he says, the world will end quickly on Oct. 21 without any build up.
Today 10:12 AM Will Camping Give Donors Money Back or Help Them Out?

"It is true that a few people have" quit jobs or depleted life savings to donate to Family Radio or spread his Judgment Day message, Camping says, but he says he never told people to do that.

"There are people who for example that have given up their jobs...to work for Family Radio, given their time, and they do because they love the Lord."
Today 10:14 AM Camping says again that Judgment Day Came, "It Was Just Spiritual."

"The timing, the structures, the proofs, none of that has changed at all," says Camping.

He is sticking to the numerology he used to determine the May 21 and Oct. 21 dates.

"All I am is a humble teacher. I search the Bible. I search the Bible," he says.
Today 10:25 AM Camping Tells Reporter that Humans are Not Capable of Understanding the Bible

Reporter, after hearing Camping talk about his studies of the Bible, asks Camping if he is saying that "we as humans are not capable of understanding the Bible?"

"You are correct," says Camping. He starts telling a story from the Bible about Saul.
Huh? But you said "The Bible guarantees it."
Today 10:29 AM Camping Doesn't Take Responsibility for Followers' Actions

Reporter, speaking of a May 21 follower: "How do you feel about this woman who tried to take her life and her own daughters' life?"

Camping hears incorrectly and thinks that somebody committed suicide.

Camping: "She attempted to? Oh my that makes me feel better because death is terrible. It's contrary to all that the Bible teaches."

Reporter: "Do you take any responsibility for that?"

Camping says he does "not take responsibility. I don't have spiritual rule of anybody, except my wife," he chuckles. "Because as head of the household I have spiritual rule over my wife."
