    So I'm sure someone's already noticed this by now, but I just want to post this because... well, why not?

    I can't help but get that eery feeling that I'm at an assembly when listening to this video of Harold Camping talking about the rapture- the similarities are stunning, to me. In other news, obviously the rapture never happened- can't wait to see how this plays out for him and his cult following in the next few days and weeks. I could see about 100 years from now, the "Haroldites" branching off into a corporate structured publishing company, sharing the good news about the rapture. They would dismiss his claims, bogus calculations and predictions as simple human error, imperfection and being overeager.

    I'd like to see all the doomsday cult leaders come out as publicly as this goof and have a free for all in the media, showing the entire world just how frikkin stupid it all is.

    @hoser - That's exactly what I thought. And when he talks, he uses some of the same buzzwords, and the "air" of his speech is similar... I can't put my finger on it, but it's about the way he speaks - the mentality conveyed - and the choice of words that he uses, and the structure and formation of his talk. I wonder if he's ever been a witness or associated with them somehow, at some point in time.

    I don't understand why people follow him. He's not even that good of a speaker.

    what a nutcase. sounds all too familiar to talks you hear a assemblies/conventions. not a great speaker!

    That is eery. The kingdom melody-like music and JW-ese spoken by Camping also have me wondering about possible past affiliation. Or maybe it's just a manner of speaking (and thinking) that evolved out of 1800s reactionary/millennialist funda-cults (I notice Mormons and others have odd similarities to the Witnesses).

    I wonder if Harold could be considered a false prophet, according to the standard of JW's...

  • foolsparadise

    This old bag of bones is slurring his words. Must be drunk on Armageddon thoughts

  • freetosee

    Ok, he's not the best speaker I've ever heard, but he does a lot better then some of the GB when they were his age. Some of them I could not understand a word they were saying.
