Harold Camping Suffers A Stroke

Apocalypse SaturdayI knew that he was going to use age-related health issues to weasel out of responsibility for his updated October 21st rapture prediction — blast you, Harold Camping, for being so clever! Via the San Francisco Chronicle:

Harold Camping, 89, was at his Alameda home with his wife Thursday evening when he suffered the stroke, said Family Radio host Craig Hulsebos. The Oakland minister who incorrectly predicted the world would end May 21 was scheduled to be released from a local hospital after being treated, a talk show host at his radio station said Monday.

Employees at the office declined to talk about Camping’s condition in detail, instead referring to a release from his family. “Doctors are pleased with his progress,” the statement read. “Mr. Camping’s family appreciates your thoughts and prayers.”

    When you die, this world ends for you. This world ends for people every day. Maybe Harold will pass in October.

    I assume at some point the doctor will approach Camping’s family and say something like, “Based on tests we’ve run so far, your greatgreatgreatgreatgrandfather has a good chance of recovering up to 20% of his normal brain function.”

    Which begs the question:  What’s 20% of nothing?
