End Times Math: The Equation That Predicts May 21 Judgment Day
With the end of the world looming this Saturday (May 21), non-believers are planning "Rapture parties" to poke a little fun at the Doomsday prediction and also raise awareness for other causes.
A portion of an ad on page 176 of the April issue of Reader’s Digest tout’s Harold Camping’s prediction for this fateful Saturday, along with an invitation to the website where a countdown clock confirms time is running out.

Harold Camping, 89-year-old leader of the ministry Family Radio Worldwide, has predicted that a five-month destruction of humanity will commence Saturday with a Rapture, in which believers will ascend to heaven. "Whereas this five-month period will be an enormous horror story for those who have not been raptured, it will be a time of great joy and wonder for those who are raptured," according to the Family Radio website.
Camping uses a mathematical formula linked to prophecies in the Bible. He once predicted Sept. 6, 1994 as Judgment Day, but that math didn’t quite work out. This time around, Camping’s organization took out an ad in Reader’s Digest, stating: "The Bible guarantees the end of the world will begin with Judgment Day May 21, 2011."
Might the world really begin to end this weekend? Even many Christians aren’t buying it.
"There are a long line of brilliant people who, through intricate calculations, have made predictions about the end of the world," Pastor Joseph Fuiten with Cedar Park Assembly of God Church in Bothell, Wash., told the Seattle Times. "Unfortunately they have overlooked the obvious words of Jesus: ’You do not know the day or the hour’ of such events."

"A global financial meltdown. A nuclear holocaust. A zombifying plague. An asteroid strike. Four horsemen descending from the sky. The world as we know it could end in any number of ways.
A five-month hell on Earth for nonbelievers before the universe self-annihilates (or something) starts this Saturday, May 21, according to a fringe Christian radio broadcaster in California.
Whatever the flavor, degree and likelihood of your preferred doomsday scenario, you will wish should such a day arrive that you had prepared for it."
