This from TIME Magazine: “In a comfortable office, Bible placed firmly atop his lap, 89-year-old Harold Camping is preaching with utter certainty about the end of the world. ‘May 21, 2011, is the day of judgment.'” By the way, if tomorrow is judgment day, if the rapture does happen tomorrow, I don’t know what that does to the Obama campaign.

But TIME Magazine is having a lot of fun here mocking these Christians. But are they any more deluded than the people who believe so devoutly in manmade global warming? As I say, these comparisons are fascinating, global warming and these end of the earth guys, it’s almost identical.
