End of the World 2011: Is May 21, 2011 Judgement Day?
Some Think That the World Will End on May 21, 2011. Be Sure To Mark It In Your Google Calendar
If you have any important appointments, it's best to book them before May 21, 2011. Why? The world is coming to an end, according to some folks.
A growing number of people are trying to tell the world that there isn't much time left since the world will end on May 21, 2011.
Why Is the World Ending on May 21, 2011?
Some believe that May 21, 2011 is Judgment Day, citing clues they've deciphered in the Bible.
Haubert says the Bible contains coded "proofs" that reveal the timing. For example, he says, from the time of Noah's flood to May 21, 2011, is exactly 7,000 years. Revelations like this have changed his life.
The men go on to say that they believe that the world will end May 21 thanks to a series of earthquakes that will begin at 6 pm Pacific time. True believers will be "raptured." Everyone else? Not so much.
The two men in the NPR piece aren't alone.
Radio host Harold Camping held an end of the world rally earlier this month in Washington, DC just to help spread the word that we're all doomed.
Camping previously predicted that the world would end on September 6, 1994. I don't have the research here in front of me and I can't seem to find a Wikipedia entry on this, but I'm going to go ahead and say that his first end-of-the-world prediction was wrong.
Whether his May 21, 2011 end of the world prediction is right remains to be seen.
