It seems that it spent all the night with me in my bed but it did not make any move that could have alerted me,” Ali Al Omari said. “Thanks God that I was not bitten by this snake which is considered as the most dangerous and poisonous snake in Saudi Arabia,” he told Sada newspaper.

    Two days before the date his boss had predicted as the Apocalypse, Matt Tuter made an auspicious decision: He canceled the skywriters. Family Radio, the Oakland-based evangelical network run by Harold Camping, had already spent more than $5 million on 5,000 billboards announcing Judgment Day -- May 21, 2011 -- according to tax documents. Now, Tuter said, he feared that the airplanes, which were to inscribe the warnings in the skies above major U.S. cities, were one expense too many for a business operating as if there really would be no tomorrow. Two years later, Camping's predictive powers have been...

    Whether you’re a prepper or an outdoor enthusiast who likes to get away from the modern world for days at a time, you know that there are still a pesky few electronic devices that you would like to keep charged even when a power source is miles away. There are several options like solar panels and hand cranks for providing off-grid power; but often — for preppers and backpackers alike — space is a major concern when already packing a heft of gear. A new camp stove design by a company called BioLite, however, can help you keep your pack...

    After numerous failed doomsday predictions, Family Radio founder Harold Camping announced this month that he has no plans to predict ever again the day of God's Judgment. He also issued an apology to listeners, admitting that he was wrong. "We have learned the very painful lesson that all of creation is in God's hands and He will end time in His time, not ours!" a statement on Family Radio's website reads. "We humbly recognize that God may not tell His people the date when Christ will return, any more than He tells anyone the date they will die physically." Camping,...

    Harold Camping’s only words to reporters the day before what he has claimed will be the world’s last day were: “We’re not having a conversation. There’s nothing to report here,” according to Reuters. Wearing a bathrobe and using a walker outside of his Alameda, Calif., home, the doomsday preacher chuckled as reporters tried to get comments from him Thursday regarding the supposed Rapture that, as of Friday afternoon, appears not to be happening. However, Camping did say the Oct. 21 rapture would be "quiet." Months after Camping's second prediction of a May 21 Judgment Day, the doomsday "prophet" said that...

You may recall the excitement earlier this year when Grand Rapids received a visit from the followers of Family Radio Worldwide, a California-based Christian group led by 89-year-old Harold Camping, who were traveling the country to loudly and colorfully proclaim Judgment Day's imminence. It didn't happen. OR DID IT!? The conspicuous lack of a world-ending earthquake left Camping and his followers scrambling to explain why...

For many leisure travelers, camping nowadays might involve driving just a few miles from home to spend the night in a cabin with a roof, bathroom, beds and electricity, or taking the kids to a place that offers activities and entertainment like scavenger hunts or sports competitions.

I guess the only good news is that it will be the end of the Obama Administration. And the Clintons, Arnold, the Palestinians, Villaraigosa, Nancy Pelosi, NOW, and Planned Parenthood. And Charlie Sheen and the rest of Hollywood.

    The Haddad children of Middletown, Md., have a lot on their minds: school projects, SATs, weekend parties. And parents who believe the earth will begin to self-destruct on Saturday. The three teenagers have been struggling to make sense of their shifting world, which started changing nearly two years ago when their mother, Abby Haddad Carson, left her job as a nurse to “sound the trumpet” on mission trips with her husband, Robert, handing out tracts. They stopped working on their house and saving for college. Last weekend, the family traveled to New York, the parents dragging their reluctant children through...

    As an article in The Washington Post reveals, influential radio broadcaster and confirmed false prophet Harold Camping is at it again. The end of days, according to Camping, is set for May 21, 2011. Camping has made this same prediction, but for a different date, in the past. Sherman, set the Wayback Machine for August of 1994. I was living in Fallbrook, California and on a particularly beautiful SoCal Saturday morning, I took my two young daughters out for breakfast at a coffee shop. While my girls nibbled at their muffins and sipped chocolate milk, a friendly, sixty-ish gentleman struck...

    Here we go again—Judgment Day. This time Harold Camping called it for this weekend, May 21. His billboard ads read: “The Bible Guarantees It!” We even heard this mentioned this week on CNBC, of all places. Confused Christians have been calling for the end of the world for a very long time, embarrassing themselves and the rest of Christianity. Did you know that the Bible does not even mention the end of the physical universe? I’m sure this will come to a shock to Christians who do not know their Bible. So let’s take a look.
  • FIRST-PERSON: May 21 wouldn't be the first false prediction

    NEW ORLEANS (BP)--I predict that Harold Camping, the elderly radio talk show host now predicting Judgment Day on May 21, 2011, and the end of the world October 21, 2011, will adjust his predictions to future dates after doing further calculations on May 22, 2011. I believe my prediction will most certainly take place because "no one knows the day or the hour," according to Jesus. Since Camping is working from the genealogies in Genesis 5 and 11 and the account of Noah's great flood, I assume he can and will come up with calculations to support new dates for...

    The billboards on Highland Avenue in Salem and Cabot Street in Beverly have been hard to miss: "Judgment Day ... May 21 ... The Bible Guarantees It."Phil Wyman saw a billboard and found it inspiring. "We just decided to throw a party," said Wyman, pastor of The Gathering, a small nondenominational Christian church in Salem. "Left Behind: The Party!" begins at 2 p.m. Sunday at the church at 217 Essex St. There will be games, refreshments, live music and even an attempted rapture of plastic cups. Wyman will sing an original song he posted on YouTube: "Left Behind: The Song!"...

    Every time some maverick like Camping decides to go off the reservation and promote a prophecy like this, scorn is brought on all of us who believe Jesus is coming again. The mockery factor will be quite high come Monday the 23rd. I do not know what Camping is going to do. He has closed every door on his options. He has said the Bible guarantees it. There is no plan B. This is it, plain and simple, no question marks after May 21, 2011? or the like to fall back on. I have thought he might spiritualize it, like...
