Today, the world waits to see whether Harold Camping’s predictions about the end of the world really come true. If they do then an earthquake will strike New Zealand in just a few hours

Harold Camping has caught the world by storm, with his morbid prediction that the world will come to an end on the 21st of May, 2011. Harold Camping predicted that on the 21st of May, 2011, the beginning of the end of the world will kick-off, starting with a deadly earthquake which will strike at 6 p.m. Harold Camping also predicted quite precisely that the earthquake will first hit New Zealand and then its terrors will spread to the rest of the world. Now the 21st of May, 2011 is here and people are waiting to see whether his prophecy is fulfilled. There are some people who are mocking this whole theory about the world coming to an end today, while others have taken it so seriously that they are literally sticking their ears to the ground for the sound of an approaching earthquake as predicted by Harold Camping.

Harold Camping is a preacher and founder of a Christian radio station. He has been spreading his message about the end of the world for a few months now and has gathered quite a group of followers. According to Harold Camping, Judgment Day will take place on the 21st of May, 2011 after which all the believers will be taken to heaven by Jesus Christ while the non-believers will rot on this planet. He also said that there will be five months of extreme chaos and tragedy following the 21st May, 2011 earthquake and then the world will eventually end on the 21st of October, 2011. Harold Camping also came up with the number of believers who will be taken to heaven during rapture and according to him the number is around 200 million or three percent of the world’s entire population.

While Harold Camping has managed to gather quite a number of followers, who are now actually waiting for an earthquake in New Zealand, he has also garnered skeptics and cynics who are mocking his theory.

All these people who are mocking Harold Camping’s theory are waiting for the hour to pass, so that they can prove to him that his theory is false, when no earthquake strikes New Zealand.

It seems that the whole world is glued to the TV news channels and the internet in order to find out whether any earthquake strikes New Zealand today or not, because our whole lives depend on it!
