Sometimes even the best moves do not increase the tempo of interest among the masses. The Apocalypse Now is considered as one of the greatest movies of all the time. Recent failed doomsday by Harold Camping and soon after that a new date did not surprise many people on the blocks. It so happens every time when a prophecy goes wrong, the false prophet says, I can bet this time, you are gonna doomed. Well, we will learn to ignore the false prophets someday. That hope is equally loose as the news of sensationalism still gets to our nerves. Why are we so much obsessed with end of the world?
There had been some stories in almost every culture and religion predicting something or the other. Even if they don’t smart guys claim they do. The doomsday trend is on the decline and its worthiness is for the questioning for several people who thought doomsday is going to be big earner for them.
A trend marketing guy and one who can understand the cycles and time waves, can make the sense of what way it is going this time. It is certainly down the slope for the trends of doomsday media, movies, books and other related things.
It would be late to say that doomsday or apocalypse or better to say rapture as media event has passed its date now. There are thousands of the people who lost their earnings and some of them badly invested in doomsday, are looking to find the lost grounds.
Right now, the things have silenced to murmurs and whispers. There are no big size drums of the doomsday. Even if they are here, they are quiet. They are not making any noise. Is world happy after failed doomsday? Yes, It is! The beautiful world is nice place for anyone who has resources to feel great here. For others, it is struggle on one or other plane.
I thought the circus is over and we all can go home and watch the television and those shows which are screaming for our attention and are better than Mr Camping’s theories. I had this feeling that it would not be over so soon. Why Read on!
Actually, Harold Camping designed whole this stuff so well that he would be able to engage the public for months. His prophecy included that May 21, 2011 would the rapture or Judgement day and October 21, 2011 would be the doomsday. That is the clever part of the whole deal. Now May 21, 2011 had nothing that sort. Harold Camping says “it was silent judgement day” but October 21 would real and quick.” As someone some said, you can not compete with the man who is old and knows with his experience the art of riding on the waves. Certainly Mr. Camping has the spirits of never going down. It would have been better if Mr. Camping had invested his efforts, time and energies into something else. Why something else? The theme and business of predicting end of the world is big grosser for Mr. Camping. People pay him money. He gets donation and other stuff through that. He is excelling into something which he knows better and that is how to take masses on the ride.
Mr. Camping’s new date is based on the old calculations which have been proven wrong twice. It is beyond comprehension why media pays attention to this guy. The media loves gimmicks and circus which is in the full view. So, October 21, 2011 would be like May 21, 2011. Yes or No. Camping may even not know the uselessness of his predictions. He may believe in his prediction so much that it is blinding the logic and so are his followers.
Anyone who talks crazy about the end of the world, has lost his mind. Thats it! Do you still wish to wait for October 21, 2011 doomsday? Well, just stay with us on this site. The ride is going to entertaining for sure.
Lot of people wants to know what happened to Harold Campings, Robert Fitzpatrick and other 25,000 people who had faith in this hyped Judgement day of 2011. Well, if it has been designed like this then this campaign has gone out of hands now. It can be believed that it was not guerrilla marketing event as it seemed to begin with. There are many reasons to believe that because it has not been concluded well. Or nobody came forward to take the responsibility or close the events in right manners. A marketing event is not left unattended. So It can be believed that it was serious attempt at predicting the end of the world which has proven to be false. So what is in the store for Harold Camping and others.
Harold Camping may not like to speak about it and there is no statement from him for now. It can be understood that world is going easy on him. Because he is in his old age, the media and other folks have taken the lenient view of that. It can be passed like that. There is no loss and nobody has been harmed. Harold Camping must come forward and send the message to his followers and supporters. Robert Fitzpatrick would need to sit down and think deeply how he wishes to arrange for the money needed for living. It is going to be tough for him. The other followers who got duped or to better say, they must be thankful for seeing the beautiful world again, can go on living normally as if nothing has happened.
It is a big lesson for the people to choose whom they follow. It must be equally sound alert for the people to see if they are being duped by the theories which are baseless.
Unfortunately, there is very long list of the doomsday theorists who have predicted end of the world on December 21, 2012. Most of them sell their books on Amazon and other places. For May 21, 2011 world dealt with only one man but for December 21, 2012, there are hundreds of the doomsday experts who are out there screaming to get your attention. How would you escape them? Just Follow what I write on this site. Anyone who says End of The world is coming, is lying. Listen to the people who say Doomsday is a False and is a very polished Hoax.
Well, what is the best way of over-coming a mistake or failed judgement day for Harold Camping. Let’s detail the steps or the choices which are available to Harold Camping and his Followers:
- The first easy choice is that Harold Camping acknowledging the mistake and fading away from the scene. But that would label him a failed prophet for ever. It is a step which is not easy for him to take. Being in the lead position means that you can not turn people away from you. So, there has to be better exit plan for him.
- Harold Camping can work on the new date announcement. Although, that would have less impact but still he would find few believers. He can tell the world, I have corrected the mistake in calculating the date and new date is available now.
- He can write new books based on the disclosure why Judgement Day did not arrive on May 21, 2011. If he knew the date, he would also know the reasons why it would not arrive. There must be some parameters which prevented Judgement day from its arrival.
- Harold Camping can join the rest of the world and being more of his natural self and preach the love and humanity.
- He can donate the money to the causes or can ask his group to work in the fields which require more attention to make the world a better place.
- A failed prophet needs to find out something or the other thing to spend his time with.
- Harold Camping deserves the dignified life and support of the community. He must ask for the help of the people around him. He is still respected for his work. I am not supporting him. I am just saying let the man live with the honor and dignity.
- Harold Camping has money and resources to promote the campaigns which are worth of doing so. He can always find something or other thing to be part of.
- He may spend time touring the world and writing his experiences.
- One thing for sure is , he should get away from the business of prophecies and predicting the end of the world.
This was hopefully the last of the predictions of Harold. Beyond this, he must spend his time peacefully somewhere.
It is 1 AM Eastern Time. For those who do not understand the time zones, it is May 22, 2011 1:00 AM in New York. The date has already changed in the rest of the parts of the world.
Harold Camping’s prediction went wrong. There is no judgement day. Now Teacher Wang and Harold Camping join the lost chord together and we can equate them because both of them were proven wrong as the world did not end as they predicted.
For his followers who took his words little too seriously; Choose whom you follow very carefully. For Harold Camping, the opportunity meant money. I have been telling this for long that Harold Camping’s tactics resemble the guerrilla marketing ways. If it has been so, Harold Camping successfully created a campaign and cashed on it. You can not even think of doing the same if you do not know how to manipulate media and most important how to plant the fake story.
Harold Camping’s group is not poor, There are 2009 tax fillings available all over the web. You can guess the business and the money it had over the period of time. It is really beyond various thinking heads, where all this would go. Harold Camping lost nothing except few followers who may turn away. But for someone who took Harold Camping’s words seriously, it is mix of world for him after his prophecy failed. It is beautiful to see another day living and world being here this morning is a beautiful feeling.
For someone who has waited for the world to end and it did not end, would mean that he or she may change herself for better. It is a realization which must be brought upon to change us all and become loving and caring towards each other. Let Harold Camping make his next thousand prophecies, You just keep away from all of them. Love your friends, family and the world around you. Nice to see you here and smiling. Your smile is beyond the price of anything. Keep love and smile alive!
Mr Harold Camping, Greetings from the people of the world. There is news for you that you may not like to hear. This is the morning of May 21, 2011 and in some parts of the world, the night has begin to descend already. Apparently, there is no end of the world. This is beautiful morning. The news for you is that, the world is still here and there is nothing of that sort which you predicted.
May 21, 2011 as judgement day or rapture day or what ever quick name someone can think of are not the ones which would make this world go off. There have been many predictions in the past which have been proven wrong with the course of time. To prove these theories wrong, you do not have to do anything. They are time failing variables which are validated to be false as their time is over. Harold Camping is the one who has been named as the false prophet of the decade and deserves to be called so. His $80 Million empire has not been made without money or the support and donation of the people who believed in him and he took all of them for a very rough ride.
Though there is no fun in this all. It all posts to the issues which must be dealt legally. Why governments allow the shady organizations to work and raise money from the unsuspecting people. There are no cases of the legal nature for now which must be answered by someone in the court. It is in fact surprising to note why Harold Camping has been in the news for his ways. It may be same way off-track as the ideas of David Icke are. Both the men know how to manipulate media. They are successful in what they do. It is different matter that they are no on the other side of the fair game. May be misleading others is fair game for them.
You know what pleases someone more than anything. It is the hope and the wish that someone would be seeing the beautiful world for ever. Believe me, if doomsday or rapture on May 21, 2011 does not occur, Harold Camping would be the happiest guy on earth. There are many reasons. The first and foremost, the prediction went wrong so he will live to see the beautiful world around him. Other reasons is, he would get future to preach his next probable dates of doomsday or what ever he calls it.

I am reading the reports from all over the world. What sort of agony is this. We are all pouring too much into the theories which are not making us glad at all. The doomsday theories are in bad taste and certainly they look nice when they are months away. But as the days get closer, even people are shaken just by the thought of it. It all happens due to and courtesy of false prophets. As explained earlier, the doom-sayers are smart guys. If one date fails, they have next one ready.
The false prophets are many steps ahead and they think they are the master manipulators. Believe me, none can match their speed. They can not spread rumors in many Countries because their actions are not fully legal.
Let May 21 2011 pass, this site is going to post after-thoughts.
I had been posting on this stuff lately. The other page has been going full scale with everyday update. I am yet to see a credible evidence of Harold Camping’s claims. For now, it all seems like “I say it, it is for you to take it or leave it”. The problem is Harold Camping is not saying it all to himself.
The media has been taken for a ride. Though I see very cautious approach of the mainstream newspapers and TV channels. It is appreciated that a responsible and restrained aspect is visible as far as the bits of streams are concerned for the people like false prophets.
Well, you must know that May 21, 2011 judgement is hoax. But sometimes, we all are under the pressure of our unconscious levels to believe the unreasonable things as well. If you listen Harold Camping and the group’s preaching, there are chances that you would end-up being convert. No matter how hard someone screams, if doomsday is not supposed to come, it would not come at all. No matter how convincing ideas Harold Camping has, they are worthless.
You must spread the words among your friends that May 21, 2011 judgement day is a hoax and does not deserve the attention.
You can use the links of just2012.com and mail them to your friends so that they are better informed. Being informed does not harm anyone. You would certainly be grateful that you helped the people to know the real meaning of the hoax which was threatening the senses. You would also be on the fair side of the game when your friends would know that you helped them to understand the truth behind the hyped news.
You can use the links of just2012.com on your sites as well because we are better placed in terms of May 21, 2011 hoax being concerned or the complete scenario of Doomsday of 2012 is concerned. It makes sense to link the likewise sites on your internet properties. You would certainly gain the respect of your readers that you did not promote the hoaxes.
We held a discussion with the group of people and asked them what is the possibility if doomsday can be sold to someone. The group and its member were not of the view that doomsday can be sold because it is not a tangible product. Agreed. What about this. If someone has an idea which can be linked with Guerrilla Marketing and wishes to sell that to someone. Will that work? That may work. Though, there are very few possibilities whether someone would really invest the money in doomsday related ideas and wait to see the returns. In my views, Harold Camping and his group has long been in the business of predicting the End of the World. It is good to see that this time Harold has the funding from someone who would be willing to fund the idea and share the returns.
Sounds good. So, in practical, the doomsday of May 21, 2011 can be sold and it can be objectified for showing the investors that if we do it rightly, there is money. You need to consider the cost of hiring billboards which is not very cheap. The more of campaign and more of hype would lead to the right results. You may make money through various revenue models.
I know many doomsday site owners who make nothing and their sites have Low traffic and Zero earnings so far. I sometime think, why someone would come half prepared in the game and would not get anything. All sold ideas which have been dealing with doomsday are going to be ineffective post May 21, 2011. The failure of prediction would cost very high. You need to see that Harold Camping’s half measures and his failure would be costly affair for many site owners and for the people who are believing in him too much.
The verdict is, Doomsday ideas can be sold to investors. It all depends on how you do it.
Fitzpatrick is the man who took it too seriously and he has put his everything in promoting his book and the doomsday or rapture of May 21, 2011. I empathize with this man. I seriously doubt whether he has really put his all savings in such a unconfirmed idea. He might not be able to recover the money with in next 7 days. If doomsday does not occur on that day and world remains here, he is going to learn a very expensive lesson. I will leave it here so Mr Fitzpatrick deals with it himself.

For others, who so ever is thinking of replicating his example, my advice is do not even think about it. Even if doomsday is true, you should not invest all your savings in such ideas which will give you run for your money. You must not try to be the messiah or a super-man type character. You must understand that you have certain responsibilities on the earth. If you think about your family, home and friends around you, I am sure you would realize, there is still unfinished business. It is always better to think of the Plan B if the end is near and probable.
The first of it all would be not to take the EOW seriously and even if you think of them being correct, just keep them at the bay to let them be on-the-sight. It does not matter who is right, what matters is if doomsday does not occur, you have life to deal with. The precious moments of life and the rest of it must not go without money. You must not take it seriously that you are left with no money even for affording the medicines in your old age.
You deserve a respectable life, if doomsday theories are barriers, throw them away. I would urge you to shun all the examples which replicate Mr Fitzpatrick’s way of think. I do not think Mr Fitzpatrick is that kind of guy who would in-real put everything on the bet. He is smart. You need to understand that sooner or later.
