Harold Camping lets out a hearty chuckle when he considers the people who believe the world will end in 2012. "That date has not one stitch of biblical authority," Camping says from the Oakland office where he runs Family Radio, an evangelical station that reaches listeners around the world. "It's like a fairy tale."
The real date for the end of times, he says, is in 2011.
The Mayans and the recent Hollywood movie "2012" have put the apocalypse in the popular mind this year, but Camping has been at this business for a long time. And while Armageddon is pop science or big-screen entertainment to many, Camping has followers from the Bay Area to China.
Camping, 88, has scrutinized the Bible for almost 70 years and says he has developed a mathematical system to interpret prophecies hidden within the Good Book. One night a few years ago, Camping, a civil engineer by trade, crunched the numbers and was stunned at what he'd found: The world will end May 21, 2011.

Fantastic news! I’m going to stop paying my mortgage. And my taxes—by the time the IRS comes looking for me we’ll all be safely in heaven. Right? Right?
If you believe it’s going to happen, it’s got to happen sooner or later!
Hal Lindsey must be envious.
I hope he is right, the sooner the better. I’m ready...
May 21 works well for me and my household, but then “no man knows the hour”.
"Why should I sign it?" he asked "We won't be around anyway..."
Should have had him write that in my book cover and send it to him.
Give up, Harold. You haven't a clue.
Spin some tunes, PARTY!
—I wanna see if any of the driverless cars careening about hit any with the “If It Ain’t the King James, It Ain’t the Bible” bumper sticker—
All false “date setting” aside -
...those of us that believe in a future Rapture event - also know that it is NEVER taught as the “so called” end of the world
This is the kind of kook that the world uses to paint all Christians as lunatics.
If he has been "scrutinizing" his Bible for 70 years, why has he never run across Ecclesiastes 1:4:
One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever.
I guess Jesus should have consulted with Harold Camping before He put in the Scriptures that He would have a kingdom on earth that would last for 1000 years.
“has developed a mathematical system to interpret prophecies hidden within the Good Book”
Time to take retirement, Harold.
Your’re seeing things that aren’t there.
A day after my son’s 17th birthday. I told him to watch out what kind of video games he plays.
He seems to base his understanding on what most would question.shalom b'SHEM Yah'shua HaMashiach"Christ hung on the cross April 1, 33 A.D.," he began. "Now go to April 1 of 2011 A.D., and that's 1,978 years."
Sorry, that won’t work for me I’m washing my hair that day. Have to postpone the rapture.
