Re: Dear Harold Camping,
For arguments sake lets say that God is real. Why don't people realize that even if God is real he didn't write the bible. Man wrote the bible. And anything contained therein was written by man and not God and/or Jesus.
Jesus didn't write anything down. If the bible was so important why didn't Jesus write some of it? And people take it at face value. I just don't understand that logic.
This "prophet", and I use that term loosely, claimed he got this prophesy from the bible. Well humans wrote the bible so how would they know anything about the end of the world? It just doesn't make sense to me why people would fall for this end of the world crap.
Back to the Camping's liability. In a criminal case for it to be fraud the prosecution would have to prove that Camping knew this wouldn't happen. And since the money was freely donated I just don't know how they can nail him with it.
Now a civil cause would be different in alot of ways. The biggest difference is the jury wouldn't have to be unanimous for the prosecution to get a victory...and that's HUGE.
