Winston-Salem, NC — You may have seen them in the Triad, across North Carolina, and throughout the United States. Billboards stating that the end of the world in May 21, 2011.
It’s part of a world-wide publicity blitz by a broadcast ministry called Family Radio, based in Oakland, Calif. The short version: Founder Harold Camping believes through a complex set of numerological calculations, one can date the creation of the world, Noah’s flood and other events described in the Bible, then extrapolate when the Bible “guarantees” the world will end.
Camping contends that God warned Noah that global judgment would occur in seven days. From that he concludes that this refers not only to the Genesis account of the flood but also another day of judgment seven “days” (millennia) later. And to top it off, he concludes that this decree can be dated back exactly 7,000 years from May 21 (based on the Hebrew calendar.)
“The Bible has given us absolute proof that the year 2011 is the end of the world during the Day of Judgment, which will come on the last day of the Day of Judgment,” said his website.
