Judgment Day May 21 - By now you've seen the billboards all over the county (all over the nation, in fact), including a couple along Highway 94 in Lemon Grove and Spring Valley. Maybe you've passed them and not given them a second thought. Maybe they've made you stop and re-evaluate things. But the message on the billboards is all too clear:
The world is going to end on Saturday, May 21.
(So much for that family trip to Disney World this summer.)
The Doomsday warning is being spewed by 89-year-old Harold Camping, who founded Christian group Family Radio and who has predicted—through careful study of the Bible—that May 21 is indeed Judgment Day.
In an interview with New York Magazine last week, Camping said, “God has given sooo much information in the Bible about this, and so many proofs, and so many signs, that we know it is absolutely going to happen without any question at all.”
Camping has incorrectly predicted the “end of days” before, for September 1994, but he chalked up that snafu to miscalculations and incomplete Biblical research. He is adamant that Saturday is the day. He told New York Magazine that he's not even thinking about the possibility that he could be wrong—again.
