One fringe Christian group has whooped the world into a frenzy as supporters around the United States declare the end of the world to be this May 21.
But the world wouldn't become destroyed in one foul swoop.
The Oakland-based Family Radio Worldwide said they have crunched the numbers and have done the math, with the groups president Harold Camping declaring the event absolutely going to happen.
Rolling earthquakes would sweep across the earth, first starting in New Zealand at 6pm local time there. From there, earthquakes will roll across the world, occurring at 6pm local time until they finally reach Los Angeles -- at which point there is sure to be a lot of damage.
The group uses the Bible to justify the claim, but not all are convinced.
Camping claims to be basing his predictions on the scriptures. That sounds promising, said Albert Mohler, president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
But the Bible does not contain hidden codes that we are to find and decipher. We are not to look for hidden patterns of words, numbers, dates, or anything else.
A resounding 79 percent of 10,000 people polled by IBTimes said that they do not believe the world would end ever.
Camping predicted the same situation before - in 1994.
