Family Radio minister Harold Camping, the individual who incorrectly predicted the world would begin its total destruction on May 21, 2011, has suffered a stroke after a radio broadcast. He was immediately taken to a local hospital.
Judgment Day has come and gone. The predictions turned out to be just as reliable as any other predictions that were based on the Bible: not. Was this an exercise in futility or can we learn something from this event?
The Rapture didn't come as followers of Harold Camping waited in disappointment. The Oakland radio minister had promised that today would be the end of the world but just like his first prediction the world still spins.
An ad I saw in the subway last Saturday grabbed my attention. It says that the Bible guarantees that the much-feared Judgment Day will be upon us on May 21. As a lover of science and evidence, I couldn't help but take a look at the claim.
