Destruction forecast by doomsday cult leader doesn’t happen. Nor does the rapture.


ReligionNewsBlog.com • Saturday May 21, 2011

Christmas Island and other locations near New Zealand, where self-styled scriptural scholar Harold Camping predicted that the apocalypse would strike by Friday night Los Angeles time, so far remain free of “super terrible” earthquakes.

So did the rest of the world. Of course.

The Los Angeles Times says Camping:

told his followers that destruction would begin on May 21, wherever it happens to be 6 p.m. New Zealand is 19 hours ahead of Pacific Daily Savings Time.

The blog entry quotes Times’ reporter Christopher Goffard reported Camping predicted:

The earthquakes will then roll on, time zone by time zone. The saved, perhaps 2% to 3% of the world population, will be whisked to God, while the rest will be obliterated in what he calls “a super horror story.”

Harold Camping earlier predicted the world would end in 1994.

The false prophet has turned his world-wide Family Radio network into theologically a cult of Christianity.
