Well it looks like we will be at a Kylie Minogue concert in San Francisco when the Rapture supposedly happens this Saturday. Not such a bad way to end the world, is it?
Seriously, though. This guy has actually convinced others that the Rapture will not only happen, but it will be on a specific day. Such sad, deluded people.
A preacher from Oakland, California, has warned that the end of the world is nigh – 21st May 2011, to be precise.
At about 6pm, Harold Camping reckons 2 per cent of the world’s population will be immediately “raptured” to Heaven; the rest of us will get sent straight to the Other Place.
Everyday, Camping, an 89-year-old former civil engineer, spreads his Doomsday predictions via the Family Radio Network, a religious broadcasting organisation funded entirely by donations from listeners.
“It’s getting real close. It’s really getting pretty awesome, when you think about it,” the Independent quoted Camping as saying.
