US preacher Harold Camping gets it wrong again

IF YOU'RE reading this, predictions that the world would end on May 21 were not true. US preacher Harold Camping, 89, who has studied the Bible for 70 years, predicted May 21 as Judgment Day. Mr Camping was raised a Baptist and belongs to the religious Right. He boasts tens of thousands of followers around the world and speaks to them through his Family Radio Network, which has made about $17 million in donations alone. He has argued that the recent spate of natural disasters, including earthquakes in Japan, New Zealand and Haiti, have been leading up to Doomsday. Mr Camping claims to have based his predictions on mathematical calculations. He believes Jesus was crucified on April 1, AD33, and 722,500 (calculated by multiplying three holy numbers together) days later would be May 21.Source (Herald Sun)
