Culture: Harold Camping is again really, pretty sure the world will end tomorrow

  • thenChristian minister Harold Camping, he of the Family Radio network, predicted that the world would come to an end on May 21st when the Rapture occurred. This didn’t happen. He’d also incorrectly predicted this for 1994.
  • now Camping is again claiming that doomsday’s a-comin’: “Oct. 21, that’s coming very shortly, that looks like it will be, at this point, it will be the final end of everything.” We humbly predict this won’t happen. For the third time. source

Culture: Geoge Lucas is no doomsday worrier, spokeswoman says

  • NO George Lucas doesn’t think the world will end in 2012 source
  • » That’s according to a Lucasfilm spokeswoman, Lynne Hale, who says she spoke with George, and that he was joking when discussing the 2012 doomsday theory with Seth Rogen. Curiously, though, Rogen claimed Lucas discussed this for nearly twenty-five minutes, which means either Rogen grossly overstated the time spent on the topic (wholly possible), or George Lucas’ idea of acceptable joke length must be rather torturous for those around him.

Offbeat: George Lucas is prepared for doomsday, are you?

  • George Lucas sits down and seriously proceeds to talk for around 25 minutes about how he thinks the world is gonna end in the year 2012, like, for real… He’s going on about the tectonic plates and all the time Spielberg is, like, rolling his eyes…
  • Seth Rogen • Relating the story of a movie meeting he recently had with Steven Spielberg and George Lucas, wherein Lucas (apparently at some length) detailed his belief that the world will end in 2012. We especially like the idea of Spielberg as Lucas’ reluctant adult in the room.  source
