Biblical scholar says 2011 is the real year the world ends

By KJ Mullins     Jan 3, 2010 in World
A Biblical scholar isn't worried about 2012 bringing in the end of the world as we know it - he's sure that the end will have already happened in 2011. Harold Camping of Oakland has followers across the globe who believe the 88-year-old's prediction.
Camping says that he has developed a mathematical system that decodes the prophecies within the Bible. What he found from crunching the numbers was the world would end May 21, 2011.
He also predicted that on September 6, 1994 the Rapture would take place.
Camping wend back to his calculations when the world indeed was still turning on September 7, 1994, admitting he may have made a mathematical error.
Camping believes God is behind him, reports the San Francisco Gate.
"We are now translated into 48 languages and have been transmitting into China on an AM station without getting jammed once," Camping said. "How can that happen without God's mercy?"
Camping's followers are not fretting about the end of the world; they believe Jesus will take them straight to heaven.
Some of his critics say that Camping and his Family Stations Inc., formerly known as "Family Radio," are a cult. Camping has taught his followers to leave their churches and follow his beliefs.
Camping does not claim to be a pastor and has no church although he does own the Family Stations, Inc.
