According to billboards throughout Clifton and the tri-state area, “Judgment Day” is scheduled for tomorrow.
Tomorrow, May 21 2011, the world as we know it will end, according to information dispersed by Harold Camping.
According to the literature as well as the website, the date of the world’s demise was calculated using facts from the Bible and a bit of math.
The math equation is: 4990 + 2011 – 1 = 7000, or in other words, 2011 is 7,000 years after Noah’s flood in 4990 B.C.E. (The 1 is subtracted, according to the leader’s website, because there was no year zero.)
The believers say May 21 is the day because the flood waters also began on the 17th day of the 2nd month, in the year 4990 B.C.E. and May 21, 2011 is the 17th day of the 2nd month of the Biblical calendar of our day.
This is not the first time Camping made an end-of-the-world prediction; he predicted the world would end on May 21, 1994, which he now calls a miscalculation.
Camping, according to several news sources, has predicted a global earthquake will take place on Saturday, which will mark the earth’s demise.
