|Alas, tomorrow is another day|
The world didn't end on Saturday, which means I will have to pay the note on my construction loan for the house I am renovating. Darn the luck.
For those of you who have better things to do than follow stupid news stories, Harold Camping has proved an utter failure at apocalypse prediction—a disappointment to followers with eyes turned upward awaiting the Rapture and others, like me, who are sometimes late at paying bills.
Camping, an 89 year-old radio evangelist based in California, had promised that he, along with 200 million others, would be lifted to heaven on Saturday while the rest of the world would be damned to a slow death from famine and fire.
If you can't trust a senile, Bible-thumping doomsday prophet, who can you trust?
After all, he worked hard to decipher the day of the Rapture by years spent decoding cryptic scripture from the Bible. He even had it down to the hour, about 6 p.m., Pacific Standard Time.
Now that we are well into this week and the world looks like it might be around a little longer, Camping hasn't had much to say other than that he is confused and "disappointed" that his prediction was wrong.
Camping's advanced years mean he won't have to wait all that long until it's over for him.
I, on the other hand, will probably still be paying that note long after Camping is broadcasting on angelic airways.
