Harold Camping is nothing if not a man of his word. When he says the apocalypse is going to happen, he means it will happen… eventually… at some point.
If you recall, Camping’s first Judgment Day prediction indicated we were all going to meet our fiery, Bruckheimer-y end on May 21, 2011. To the untrained eye, it would appear as though we all survived. But, as Camping explained, that date was merely an “invisible judgment day.” (How sad. We hope you’re in a better place now, Hologram Will.I.Am.) The real Rapture, as it turns out, is happening tomorrow, October 21, which just so happens to be one day after the Jersey Shore finale and falls out on Kim Kardashian’s birthday. Coincidence?! Yeah, probably.
But, hey, look at the bright side, PopWatchers! Not only will you finally get to use that apocalypse survival kit you bought back in May (contents: Daryl Dixon), but Camping promises it will be a “very quick” Doomsday. I mean, nobody likes waiting. Not even for the Rapture. Still, I’m skeptical, based on the sole fact that this, if anything, will be the cause of the end of the world as we know it.
Leave your comments in the section below, PopWatchers… while there’s still time!
