For those doomsdayer's who believe the end of the world is drawing nigh, there is a backup plan.
The American Atheists, another Oakland-based group, are ready to help disappointed and unfulfilled believers with a party on Sunday, May 22, the day after the projected beginning of the end, NBC Bay Area reported.
The Atheists have also erected their own 68-foot billboard near the Bay Bridge in San Francisco, which reads: The Rapture: You Know It's Nonsense: 2000 Years of 'Any Day Now!' Similar signs can be found in Houston, Texas, Wichita, Kan., and Fort Lauderdale, Fla.
The party is slated for May 21-22, the dates chosen to highlight the event.
According to Camping, the May date is the beginning of the end, the day when only the righteous will be saved and taken to heaven, keeping in line with rapture doctrine. But months of torturous devastation is promised to follow, with the actual end date for earth is Oct. 21, 2011.
