Harold Camping Wins, although His May 21st Doomsday Prediction fails

May 21, 2011

Harold Camping’s May 21st Doomsday Prediction has been disproved because no rolling earthquake started in New Zealand. But many said he is the winner because he has made a lot of dollars.

“I hope you guys realize he is currently winning, even if the quakes and rapture does not happen he is up 90 billion dollars he made off this all thing,” said a cyber-friend, called “lawl”.

Harold Camping, 89, the California evangelical broadcaster who predicts that Judgment Day will come on May 21, 2011, is seen reading the Bible in his office at Family Stations Inc. offices in Oakland, California in this still image from video May 16, 2011.

Some critics said Camping’s  May 21st  Doomsday, this week’s frenzy, is more about pop culture and money rather than Christian faith.

When Camping was asked whether people giving money to spread the message about his Doomsday prediction would get their cash back if the prediction fails, he shouted: “this is going to happen. Millions will die. It’s going to be horrible.”

According to reports, some people are buying it. Some are even buying the “Rapture Ready” T-shirt that is sold at $18.90 for a very limited time.

Further more, some Christian leaders said setting dates actually harms Christianity because false predictions support the nonbelievers’ words.

The ‘end of the world’ May 21st Doomsday has arrived, but the world remains the same as before. The expected rolling earthquake has not occurred at 6 p.m. in New Zealand that has disproved Camping’s May 21st Doomsday.

Camping first took the year of Israel’s exile from Egypt to be 1,447 B.C.,  he backed out the date of Noah’s flood to be 4,990 BC, and then he cited many Bible verses to buttress the end of the world will be 2011, 7,000 years after Noah’s flood. (4,990 B.C. + 7,001 = 2011 A.D.)

At last, takeing the 17th day of the second month recorded in Genesis 7:11, thus, he predicted the rapture to occur on the 21st May. However, he has not explained how he knows the time of 6 p.m. local time.

Reports said Camping may explain that he made a mathematical error, like he did in 1994.
