The president of Family Radio Harold Camping's Doomsday prediction failed and didn't happen. Many people are openly mocking it now.
Camping said 'Doomsday' would start with an earthquake at 6 p.m. local time in New Zealand. Then, it would spread across the world and hit each country at 6 p.m. local time. The earthquake would shatter the world and bring true believers to heaven and leave others to be judged in the world, which will be destroyed on October 21, 2011.
He said after May 21st, the earth will be hit with series of aggressive natural disasters, including earthquakes that would make the latest Japan earthquake look like a Sunday school picnic in comparison.
His predication was based on his interpretation of the Bible and a timeline dating back to the Biblical flood survived by Noah. Camping and his followers believe that the end of the Earth will come 7,000 years after that flood, which he calculates to be May 21st, 2011.
However, the May 21st 6 p.m. earthquake didn't happen in New Zealand. It didn't occur in Australia, Japan, and China.
This failure of predication isn't his first one. In 1994, he claimed that Jesus Christ will come back to Earth. After that prediction failed, he claimed he made a mathematical error in his calculation.
A Prison Minister named Marty Angelo offered $10,000 to Camping if the prediction about being raptured on Saturday turns out to be true. He now no longer needs to worry about paying up.
