Another Example Of The Folly of Blind Belief
|[A Year After the Non-Apocalypse: Where Are They Now?||Culture||Religion Dispatches](http://www.religiondispatches.org/archive/culture/5983/a_year_after_the_non-apocalypse:_where_are_they_now/?comments=view&cID=27958&pID=27956#c27958).|
The above is a fantastic essay on what happening to all of Harold Camping’s followers, how they were deceived and how many suffered enormous financial, social, and emotional damage from the belief that the world would end in May on 2011…and then didn’t.
I think this is a lesson for any large belief structures. This includes Communism, American conservatism, the Most Holy and Triumphant Church of Environmentalism, and any belief in big government. Rest assured, with the way things are going, their worlds are going to come tumbling down…and when they do, they’re going to be in just as bad a shape as Harold Camping’s misled followers.
And people wonder why I’m an ignostic.
