May 21st Doomsday Day Controversy: Harold Camping Says 2011 is End of the World!

Big plans for this weekend? Harold Camping (photographed right) seems to think one person has REALLY big plans for this weekend: God.

The Prophesier says that God plans to destroy the world this weekend, beginning on May 21st at 6pm New Zealand time and slowly making his way around the world. After seeing a pic of Camping, I can honestly I say I believe the world may end for HIM tomorrow (he looks like he’s 100+ years old) but not so much for the rest of us.

Whether you believe in the nonsense or not, the beliefs are stirring up a lot of controversy this week. Perhaps it’s because Camping and his posse believe wholeheartedly, without any doubt at all, that this Saturday, May 21, 2011 will be Doomsday / Judgement Day.

Here’s how Camping believes it will all go down:

When asked in an interview how certain he is that Doomsday will happen this weekend, Harold gave this as his reply:

“God has given sooo much information in the Bible about this, and so many proofs, and so many signs, that we know it is absolutely going to happen without any question at all.”

What if it doesn’t happen, will Harold be embarrassed and humiliated?

“I’m not even thinking about that at all,” he says. “It. Is. Going. To. Happen.”

But how will the whole world be wiped out in one day?

Here’s how Harold explains the events of May 21st:

“…when we get to May 21 on the calendar in any city or country in the world, and the clock says about — this is based on other verses in the Bible — when the clock says about 6 p.m., there’s going to be this tremendous earthquake that’s going to make the last earthquake in Japan seem like nothing in comparison. And the whole world will be alerted that Judgment Day has begun. And then it will follow the sun around for 24 hours. As each area of the world gets to that point of 6 p.m. on May 21, then it will happen there, and until it happens, the rest of the world will be standing far off and witnessing the horrible thing that is happening.”

6pm in New Zealand is 2am EST on Saturday May 21st. If Harold is correct in his prediction, we should have word when we wake up Saturday morning that an earthquake has hit New Zealand.

Now tell me, do you believe the world will begin to end in less than 24 hours?
