The flabbergasted preacher Harold Camping didn't have any David Letterman-like excuses to explain why the apocalypse didn't happen this past weekend, but that hasn't stopped him from readjusting his Judgment Day calculator. In Camping's first radio broadcast since his doomsday prediction petered out as an epic fail, the California kook insisted that the end of times did, in fact, happen, and there's be more to come.
The 89-year-old Christian radio station owner explained on Monday night, during a Family Radio station broadcast, that rather than a physical Rapture taking place (like this guy expected), the judgment was spiritual. But don't worry, doom and gloom fans; the real end of the world is still on its way. We'll let the fake prophet tell you more about it himself:
"On May 21, this last weekend, this is where the spiritual aspect of it really comes through... God again brought judgment on the world. We didn't see any difference but God brought Judgment Day to bear upon the whole world. The whole world is under Judgment Day and it will continue right up until Oct. 21, 2011 and by that time the whole world will be destroyed."
Do you hear that? That's the sound of 500,000 Twitizens laughing their collective asses off. We think that Camping should just keep on rescheduling the Rapture; it'll give us an excuse to parody savor life a little bit more. Here's to enjoying the days before October 21.
