This was the same day Radio evangelist, Harold Camping, predicted that doomsday will come on May 21. However, many did not take this seriously until Kreskin revealed that his next TV appearance would be his last. Did this mean that the end is coming? Did Kreskin see that the doomsday was at hand?
One good thing is that, it did not happen. And according to the mentalist, he is not retiring and that he was just rushing things a bit and failed to choose his words correctly.
“What I meant is that this TV project I’m planning will be the ultimate experience. Viewers will see something they’ve never seen before;” Kreskin said.
Asked what he has to say about Camping’s prediction, he said that “I immediately checked my predictions for this year, and finding nothing regarding such, went on with my life.”
“Of course, if we are to respect for even a fleeting second the pronouncement of this holy man and his conviction, we certainly would expect that he turned over every single solitary penny of his possessions to a charity by the day before the end of the world. Not doing that would label his pronouncements as phony as a $3 bill,” he added.
“Of course this holds true as well for all the individuals who were ‘passionately certain’ that the end of the world was definitely coming. Unless they relinquished all of their life savings, the question becomes, ‘Why haven’t they entered politics, where lying through one’s teeth is clearly one of the basic skills of the profession?” said Kreskin.
