Harold Camping vs Gaia

Harold Camping received a lot of news coverage of his prediction of the end of the world this weekend, particularly after it failed to materialise (again - he made the same prediction in 1994).  Maybe now he can go on to start his own denomination.

We can now move from dire predictions of the end of the world by religious zealots, & return to our regular coverage of dire predictions of the end of the world by . . . well, religious zealots.

At least Camping doesn't use taxpayer money.

Update:  It's always gratifying to find that the Wall Street Journal (first story) agrees with me.
Harold Camping is merely the Christian Al Gore.

Comments are welcome and discussion is open and encouraged. I expect that there will be some occasional disagreement (heaven knows why) or welcome clarification and embellishment, and such are freely solicited.

Consider that all such comments are in the public domain and are expected to be polite, even while contentious. I will delete comments which are ad hominem, as well as those needlessly profane beyond the realm of sputtering incredulity in reaction to some inanity, unless attributed to a quote.

Links to other sources are fine so long as they further the argument or expand on the discussion. All such comments and links are the responsibility of the commenter, and the mere presence herein does not necessarily constitute my agreement.

I will also delete all comments that link to a commercial site.
