It keeps getting weirder

The Washington Post has a small article about Harold Camping. No surprise there, Mad Harry is big news. A guy in the queue at the takeaway joint I stopped by at tonight struck up a conversation about The End, due tomorrow. Bizarre!

What's strange about the Post article is that the online text links to a certain "biblical scholar" who is "confused." Now who might that be.

Yeah, yeah, I know who you're thinking about, but it's not. In fact it's the very obscure Doctor Bob. No not that Doctor Bob! Dr. Bob Thiel.

Who? I'm having a disturbing flashback. Far too painful to go further. The Post scores 50%. Bob (who I understand got his ThD via mail order from India) is either a biblical scholar (yeah right...) or terminally confused but, in my opinion at least, certainly not both.

HT to Reg for the link.

  1. Ah, the quintessential expert in all things CoG, but without much knowledge of how to explain away Rod Meredith as a false prophet.

    He's constantly pointing out slivers in everyone else's eye without ever apparently looking in a spiritual mirror.

    There is no apparent relation to his success and any reality, in this universe anyway.
