World has ended, but you won’t know it for 5 months

World has ended, but you won’t know it for 5 months
After the world failed to come to an end last Saturday as predicted by radio host Harold Camping, he announced a new date – October 21. As for May 21, it was a “spiritual” Judgment Day, he said.

Camping and his supporters sponsored a world-wide campaign announcing that May 21 would be the day of rapture accompanied by apocalyptic earthquakes and floods.After his predictions failed to come to fruition, the elderly Christian broadcaster set the new date for five months later. The date was actually part of the initial prediction, which said the time between May and October will be given for sinners to witness God’s wrath.“The great earthquake didn’t happen on May 21 because no-one will be able to survive it for more than a few days or let alone five months to suffer God’s wrath because everything will be leveled and destroyed after that earthquake and there will be no food or water to keep everyone alive,” the preacher, said, explaining the revised date.Unlike the May rapture, the one in October will not be heralded by Camping’s followers.“The world has been warned – we did our little share and boy, did the media pick it up. Now the world has been told that it’s under judgment,” Camping said.The founder of the Family Network radio has a record of miscalculated doomsdays. The last time he falsely predicted the end of times was in 1994.
