Harold Camping, an 89-year-old retired civil engineer from Oakland, CA, claims Judgment Day will being on Saturday, May 21, 2011, at 6:00PM PST with global catastrophic events happening until the end of the world in October. Camping predicts a massive earthquake in New Zealand will start the chain of events.

Camping is the owner of a nonprofit Christian radio network called Family Radio, based in Oakland, CA. According sources, his organization received approximately $80 million from 2005 to 2009 from his contributors. Millions of dollars were spent on billboards across the country, warning people of Doomsday, May 21, 2011.

News media criticized Camping of his claims as he made the same prediction in 1994 but failed. However, this time, he ensured he got the date correct.

May 21, 2011, 6:00PM PST came and nothing happened. There were mixed reactions from both believers and skeptics. For those who believed in the end of the world, were left confused as some gave away their belongings and some even drained their bank accounts. For the skeptics, this will not be the last prediction for the end of the world.

This raises the question of: if the world is to end on a specific date, would you want to know about it ahead of time? Obviously, knowing this may cause a mass global panic as the spread of information by the internet takes only a few seconds. Or would you just let it happen, so that you will live life to its fullest? If the world is to end, there’s nothing a person can do to prevent it from happening or can hide from it. Even if you spend millions of dollars on an underground bunker, it will just prolong your inevitable death. Even if you do survive, what will you do when you come out of your underground bunker? Will you repopulate the planet? Will you rebuild the country? Would purchasing a survival kit such as this My Evac Pack help?

As time went on, a few natural disasters are being reported.

  • Iceland’s most active volcano erupted, causing their main international airport to be closed due to the heavy ash.
  • Over in San Francisco, CA, at 7:05PM PST, a magnitude 3.6 earthquake struck near the city of Hercules.
  • At 21:17:00 UTC, Saturday, May 21, 2011, a magnitude 6.1 earthquake struck near New Zealand’s Kermadec Islands.

Is it possible that Harold Camping may be correct? Has the Rapture begun? Are we headed towards the end of the world? What should we be doing about it?

Should you worry about the end of the world?

Should you worry about Doomsday?

Should you worry about Judgment Day?

Should you worry about the Apocalypse?

You decide!
