Camping in the dark

Dear Editor:

In 1994 the Rev. Camping said the Rapture would occur and Jesus would return to earth. He said he got the math wrong. Now that the same thing happened, the world did not come to and end in case some of you didn’t notice, he is saying the same thing – he got the math wrong.

This whole deal with the Rapture, which is not part of the Bible, the return of Jesus, if he ever did exist at all, and the end of the earth will occur on Oct. 21, 2011. Rev. Camping has said that only 2 to 3 percent of the population of the earth would make it to Heaven.

The world-famous theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking in his most recent book, “Grand Design,” published in 2010, has said: “There is no heaven or after life … this is a fairy story for people who are afraid of the dark.”

I could not agree more with what Hawking has written.

I’m not afraid of the dark.
