Alameda false prophet Harold Camping, who predicted a May 2011 apocalypse that never came to fruition, suffered a stroke on Thursday, June 9. According to reports, the founder of nonprofit Family Radio Church suffered a stroke on his right side. Also, his speech is now a bit slurred. Regional manager for Family Stations Inc.,Charles Menut, posted the following Yahoo group message on Saturday, "Please just pray for him and do not try to contact anyone at his home or Family Radio...He and Shirley have enough family members to handle the situation. I'm sure we'll be able to publicly update everyone on Monday."

Camping, if you recall, used numerology and The Bible to dupe millions of dollars out of loyal followers. He had proclaimed that, on May 21 at 6:00 p..m, he and his Family Radio followers would be beamed to heaven while nonbelievers would be left below to perish in flame and ruin.

Camping has since rescheduled the apocalypse start date to October 21, 2011.
