    Whew we are saved! The world won't end in 2012 like predicted! Wait... what... ooops, we seem to have lost a year! :D Another DUmmie!






    Harold Camping lets out a hearty chuckle when he considers the people who believe the world will end in 2012.


    That date has not one stitch of biblical authority," Camping says from the Oakland office where he runs Family Radio, an evangelical station that reaches listeners around the world. "It's like a fairy tale."

    The real date for the end of times, he says, is in 2011.

    The Mayans and the recent Hollywood movie "2012" have put the apocalypse in the popular mind this year, but Camping has been at this business for a long time. And while Armageddon is pop science or big-screen entertainment to many, Camping has followers from the Bay Area to China.

    Camping, 88, has scrutinized the Bible for almost 70 years and says he has developed a mathematical system to interpret prophecies hidden within the Good Book. One night a few years ago, Camping, a civil engineer by trade, crunched the numbers and was stunned at what he'd found: The world will end May 21, 2011.

    This is not the first time Camping has made a bold prediction about Judgment Day


    The number 5, Camping concluded, equals "atonement." Ten is "completeness." Seventeen means "heaven." Camping patiently explained how he reached his conclusion for May 21, 2011.

    "Christ hung on the cross April 1, 33 A.D.," he began. "Now go to April 1 of 2011 A.D., and that's 1,978 years."

    Camping then multiplied 1,978 by 365.2422 days - the number of days in each solar year, not to be confused with a calendar year.

    Next, Camping noted that April 1 to May 21 encompasses 51 days. Add 51 to the sum of previous multiplication total, and it equals 722,500.

    Camping realized that (5 x 10 x 17) x (5 x 10 x 17) = 722,500.

    Or put into words: (Atonement x Completeness x Heaven), squared.

    "Five times 10 times 17 is telling you a story," Camping said. "It's the story from the time Christ made payment for your sins until you're completely saved.

    "I tell ya, I just about fell off my chair when I realized that," Camping said
    .

    Hard to argue with that!

    I think I should apply for some more credit cards... :D

    I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.

    Yawn!
    Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.

    Well, this throws all my plans out of whack. I was really counting on that 2012 date.

    The Aztec calendar ends in December of 2012, actually. It is believed that the 'world will end' or that there will be a planet-altering event in that time.Some of the new stuff thought to be written by Nostradamus also leads to that date.

    They had to end it somewhere! Why would you sit and make infinite calendars when you have other things to do? They would have sacrificed you.

    If the Aztecs had special powers and could see the future, why are they all dead?
