You can fool some of the people
Harold Camping is merely the latest in an exhaustive list of self-proclaimed prophets and soothsayers, including Muhammad, Nostradamus, and KTVU meteorologist Bill Martin, whose predictions have failed miserably. Mr. Camping has now rescheduled The End of the World As We Know It (not to be confused with WWE SmackDown) to Oct. 21, 2011. Unfortunately, that's 6 days after my IRS Automatic Extension expires and 2 days before my ticket to the Raiders-Chiefs game. (I wonder if I should call Mr. Camping to find out if the NFL lockout will be settled by then.)
As a devout Roman Catholic, I firmly believe that God, through his son Jesus, has already planned and orchestrated man's ultimate demise by creating the Sacrament of Matrimony. Good luck to all.
