Harold Camping, a Christian radio broadcaster from California, has picked May 21, 2011, as the start of the end times. Now, as the date draws near, he's organized a doomsday caravan of fellow believers to travel across the country, spreading the word about the end of the world.
On Twitter, it's a tough sell.
if the world ends may 21 ill start going to Sunday services on may 22. #nutjobs
Some aren't sure Camping, or anyone, can predict the day of judgment.
its funny that their predicting that jesus is coming back on may 21,2011.. why that date? lol.. no man knows the time nor hour
Others have more earthly concerns.
The end of the world is apparently happening on May 21, 2011....Damn..I won't get to turn 21 lol
I should have enough clean clothes to last until the apocalypse. Really don't want to do laundry again before May 21.
Note to party planners: Yes, May 21, 2011, falls on a Saturday.
Oh don't forget apparently Judgement Day and the end of the world is on May 21 of this year. I hope that's a weekend so I can party
But as one believer points out, there are coincidences for those who want to see them.
May 21, 2011 just "happens" to fall on the 2nd day of the 17th month and just "happens" to be exactly 7,000 years after the flood.
Some people are even seeing signs.
i just saw a billboard: judgement day is coming - may 21, 2011. CREEPY
