The Sky Is Falling – Judgement Day 2011
Spend any amount of time watching TV and I'm sure you've come across show titles forecasting the doom of society on channels like the Discovery Channel, The Learning Channel or even the Sy-Fy Channel. There's no way to hide from it, even an accidental click of your remote and you will be caught up in the drama of our pending doom on December 21st, 2012, the day when many ancient historical calendars end. But what if the real date of the apocalypse is this weekend? What if instead of December 21, 2012, the real end of the world begins this Saturday, May 21st? In fact, according to a sign I saw a guy holding outside the mall - Judgement Day is upon us!
That is of course, if you believe what all of the doom and gloom prognosticators are saying online and even speculating about on television? I for one, am one of the many members of the public who remain fascinated about info of our pending global demise. Sure, its bogus! But, I can only speculate that you've read an article and/or watch some of those TV shows, looking for some kind of proof or piece of the puzzle that points to an end date of society.
But according to the head of the Family Radio Group, Harold Camping, the proof to this puzzle is in the math - of the Bible. The Family Radio Group leader, has predicted our Judgement Day by using dates and calculations given to us in the Bible. Camping believes that - Noah built his ark in the year 4990 B.C., and that when God spoke to Noah telling him he had 7 days to escape worldwide destruction. According to Harold Camping's interpretation of those instructions, one day is actually equals one thousand years, meaning seven days is equal to 7000 years.
If we take those numbers and put them into an equation, IE: 4990 B.C. plus 2011 A.D. = 7001, but since there was no year "zero", we need to subtract one which makes the sum = 7000.
Lets take a closer look!
Family Radio Group also states that the flood waters Noah survived began on the 17th day of the 2nd month, in the year 4990 BC. According to Campbell, the 17th day of the second month of the biblical calendar is May 21st and the year 2011, makes this Saturday exactly 7000 years after the start of the flood and is the predicted date for the beginning of our worldwide destruction.
The Good News in this Camping's prediction is that, as he says "about three percent of the worlds population (approx. 200 million people) will vanish off the Earth, as they ascend to heaven on Saturday", leaving the rest of us behind to face the apocalypse. The Bad News is, that means 97 percent of us will remain on Earth as it spirals towards the end of days.

Either way, I suppose I'll plan on coming in to work on Monday. I can't picture myself facing the end of days, without a job.
