Harold Camping - the real one

Failed Rapture prognosticator Harold Camping’s been making appearances on KPFA’s Over the Edge show for years. Well, not the real Camping, but a fake one provided by the audio-collage satirists Negativland, several of whom reside in the Bay Area.

On Friday, the band exploited this post-Camping-debacle period in typical whacked out fashion. Take a listen.

    Harold Camping sounds like he plagiarized Jehovah’s Witnesses.
    Jehovah Witnesses are a spin-off of the second Adventist which all came from the Millerite movement.American war of 1812 army captain William Miller is ground zero for Jehovah’s Witnesses.
    Yes,the “great disappointment” of Oct 22 1844 has never died out… it lives on in the Jehovah’s Witnesses.
    The central CORE doctrine of the Watchtower,yes the reason the Watchtower came into existence was to declare Jesus second coming in 1914.When the prophecy (derived from William Miller of 1842) failed they said that he came “invisibly”.
    Watchtower reckless predictions of the (1914) (1975)….. second coming of Christ hardens skeptics in their unbelief and provides new fodder for cynics to mock the Christian faith.

    Harold Camping is following the same damage control route as the apocalyptic Watchtower and there are many independent objective news articles up as I type connecting Camping with the Jehovah’s Witnesses and end times..
    Let the facts and history speak….
