Soon it will be spring again. The snow will melt, the dogwoods flower. Trumpets will blast, graves will open, and Earth will begin a five-month descent to its fiery end.
Radio evangelist Harold Camping can hardly wait.
May 21 is Judgment Day, when "this world will be a horror story beyond anything we can imagine," he asserts.
In a phone interview last week from his Oakland, Calif., office, [Harold] Camping warned that those who do not accept his complex calculations, including even devout Christians, will face "sudden destruction" when Jesus returns.
Essentially, he argues that May 21, 2011, is "exactly 7,000 years after 4990 B.C., when the [great] flood began," and that these 7,000 years mirror the seven days God gave Noah to warn the world to get ready for destruction.
Five months later, on Oct. 21, "the entire universe will be annihilated."

And exactly how does 7000 years mirror the 7 days of creation? Many have guessed before. No man knows the hour or the day of His return.
Excellent, I don’t have to pay taxes this year.
The guy’s an idiot.
I wonder who’s pitching that night for the Twins. Might want to move him up a day.
“Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.” - Matthew 25:13
Or save money or go on a diet!
"Just as the Wright brothers figured out flying, Camping has predicted Judgment Day where so many others have failed, said Chris McCann, 49, of Darby, a married father of four who retired from his job in the mailroom at a financial-services company.Finally, a futurist willing to put his money where his mouth is. Still deluded, but consistently deluded.
"McCann is so confident of Camping's prediction that he and 20 others, most from the Philadelphia region, spent 10 days in Ireland and Scotland this month distributing thousands of May 21 tracts.
"'This will be the day,' he said."
So much for the Reds' chances to win the World Series.
Matthew 24:36 newly amended King James Bible: But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only, and of course Harold Camping too.
At least I’ll get to celebrate Burn Your Socks Day one more time...
Well at least it'll be quick.
I would be more than happy to laugh in this schyster’s face on the day of May 22nd if I had the chance.
Hucksters like these make true Christians look bad.
I notice that his radio station is still asking for “love offerings.”
Ain’t gonna be a lot of love in the room on May 22 when it’s business as usuual...
He’s been embarrassing Bay Area Christians for decades now.
>>Excellent, I dont have to pay taxes this year.<<
I’d file an extension to be on the safe side. ;)
OK, I have a question. Will the earth end a day sooner in Japan?
Ah! I love a journalist who can turn a good phrase.
