Sure, it was pretty easy to laugh at the idiots who thought the world was actually going to end on May 21. Unfortunately it’s not all fun and games. Some people actually believed it and had more to deal with than a lot of disappointment when it did not come.
Apparently one woman was convinced that the end times were really near. Due to the conflicts in the Middle East and the earthquake in Japan, she was convinced that judgment was approaching. When preacher Harold Camping stated it was to be on the 21st of May she took it seriously. She attempted to kill herself and her two young children.
Fortunately, she failed. After slitting her daughters’ wrists and throat and her own, someone found the injured trio and called for an ambulance before they all bled to death.
I don’t know what else to say to this. There are some people who take even the nuttiest religious claims very very seriously.
