According to his prediction May 21 was supposed to bring a massive earthquake, powerful enough to throw open graves, followed by a slow death for all non-believers over the next 5 months across the world. In 1992, Camping wrote a book titled “1994?” about the world coming to an end that year.
He wrote, “When September 6, 1994, arrives, no one else can become saved. The end has come.”
After Harold said, apocalyptic prediction did not come true because of a mathematical error.
“I’m not embarrassed about it. It was just the fact that it was premature,” he told The Associated Press last month. But this time, he said, “there is…no possibility that it will not happen.”
He says his predictions are based on numerological formulas calculated direct quotes and stories from the Bible. May 21, 2011 is exactly 7,000 years since the flood in the biblical story of Noah’s Ark.
Message has been sent via worldwide broadcasts and web sites by Camping, an 89-year-old retired civil engineer and his multi-million dollar nonprofit ministry (based on his apocalyptic prediction).
