The man who claims he knew too much
Harold Camping's world just hasn't been the same since his erroneous prediction that the world would end May 21, 2011. He's taken heat from his followers over the failed Rapture, followed by a stroke that landed him in the hospital last month. His radio show, where he speaks to his fellow Christians, is going off the air, and now the 89-year-old evangelical preacher is living in a nursing home.

Camping's daughter confirmed that Camping moved from an area hospital to a skilled nursing home where he is undergoing therapy and rehabilitation to build his strength, media outlets are reporting.

Meanwhile, Camping's Oakland-based Family Radio is working to replace his popular Open Forum show with other programs. Open Forum is where he informed listeners of the Rapture.

The station has been playing reruns of Camping's show since his stroke early last month. The station has not yet said what programs will replace Open Forum, and whether followers can expect to hear Camping's voice on the radio again.

Only God knows.

“If what a prophet proclaims in the name of the Lord does not take place or come true, that is a message the Lord has not spoken. That prophet has spoken presumptuously. Do not be afraid of him” (Deut. 18:22).he's being dealt with swiftly....karma's a bitch.

Camping was never a preacher (he's a retired engineer), nor is he any longer an 'evangelical' - his views are far afield of that.

 The late actor/director and Living Theatre impresario , Julian Beck , could've played this guy's part in some production...."God is in his holy temple. Daily cares be silent now."
