That's sad, but I can't really blame Camping for this type of stuff. Nothing I'm aware that he said even implies one should kill oneself or anyone else.

No, but throughout history, there've been similar predictions with similar results, even if folks didn't say, "GO KILL YOURSELF!"

On the other hand....

It's easy to say he should have been careful with his predictions, but then again, how would one go about making a doomsday prediction that was careful? It's all well and good to say to folks "Don't kill yourself", but those folks who follow this guy (or others who do similar things) but think they might be left behind to face doomsday rather than being vacuumed up by the Celestial Hoover are probably going to be terrified.

So, we'd all have rather had him not say anything at ALL, but that wasn't possible. But I wish he, or more importantly, his followers, had done a little research and seen how many times stuff like this had happened, and just... I dunno. Waited. To see if doom and destruction would happen.

Wish in one hand, s**t in the other, see which one gets full faster...
