A pastor who predicted that the world was going to end on May 21st, 2011. He was wrong.

Harold Camping, 89 years old man, who predicted that the world will end on May 21st, 2011 (Rapture 2011). He predicted that the world will come to an end before, in 1994, but had said it was a miscalculation and that it would be on May 21st, 2011 instead.

On May 21st, when the world did not ended, Harold was nowhere to be seen. Rumors has it is that he is hiding from his followers.

Especially Camping’s followers will be demanding an explanation as they had put all their faith in Camping’s prediction, quitting jobs, selling their possessions and donating all their money to support the Doomsday campaign.
Harold Camping: The world is going to be in a chaos that it will make Japan's earthquake look like Sunday school picnic. IT IS RAPTURE 2011!

a viscious turd burgler who failed TWICE at predicting the end of the world. This hairy nut sack made up some cracked out math problem to determine doomsday, which was obviously wrong. He made millions off raping the minds of weak individuals. He spent all day May 21, 2011 listening to Britney Spears new single probably camped out masturbating. What a radical douche bag.
"Harold Camping, get your meat rocket away from my daughter!"

"Who was that cunt who said the world was supposed to end? Oh, thats just Harold Camping."

Harold Camping, you are old as tits.

An old bastard who, after falsely predicting the rapture and subsequent end of the world twice in 1994 and May 21, 2011, has boldly made another prediction for October 21, 2011. He screwed over many people (although if you're dumb enough to believe it...you kind of deserve it.) He made millions off of this scam from his followers, some donating all of their life savings and retirement to his "non-profit organization."
Harold Camping is, for lack of a better term, a douche bag.

One of a long line of chicken-little wannabes. Greatest claim to fame was conning thousands of Christians into re-painting their mini-vans and holding placards declaring May 21 2011 to be the end of the world (biblical rapture). Camping's other claim to fame was the same stunt, back in 1994, which goes to prove that the average American has a memory like your average goldfish.
So, are you serious, or are you just Harold Camping about it?

an old piece of shit that has a lot of money because he convinced people that he knows when the world is going to end. he has been wrong on all predictions, and there are more to come in the future.
Hey, i wonder when Harold Camping is going to give up on predicting the end of the world. Fourth times a charm?
A grumpy old man who has a talk show on the radio. He has predicted the Rapture--Judgement Day--at least 3 times, most recently on May 21st, and each time has been quite a let-down. His most recent reason was "because of the gays".

His "rapture" predictions are often preceded by a large-scale campaign to advertise the date with posters that say things such as "Save the Date! Judgement Day, May 21st: The Bible Guarantees It!"
Reasonable Christians often ask in response to these predictions, "if God's word is not to be interpreted by humans, then aren't all these predictions rather blasphemic?"

Reasonable people who may or may not be Christian often ask "why would anyone even believe this in the first place? He just picked an arbitrary date, there's no scientific proof at all. I see no reason to freak out."
Some people freak out anyway, because they're either idiots or they're hipsters and they're doing it ironically.
Guy 1: Dude are you coming to my barbecue tomorrow?
Guy 2: Why are you having a barbecue?
Guy 1: To celebrate Harold Camping's most recent failure to predict the end of the world.
Guy 2: Oh yeah sure, i'll come. Will there be beer?
Guy 1: Of course man, otherwise it wouldn't be a not-the-end-of-the-world barbecue.
