End Of The World: May 21, 2011

Dunno whether I've mentioned before that I grew up Seventh-day Adventist, but I did. They're one of the offshoots from the Great Disappointment of 1844 when William Miller claimed the Second Coming was to occur on October 22 (coincidence?)

When it didn't, the SDAs decided that what actually happened on that day was an (invisible and therefore unfalsifiable) event in Heaven[1]. Something had happened, and the Second Coming was still imminent.

Camping seems to some extent to be working from the same playbook. Will be interesting to see what he comes up with in October.

[1] In brief, Jesus had got up and moved into the Most Holy Place to judge the lives of the living.
