"The Rapture Is Not Saturday -- It's Tonight"

The Rapture Is Not Saturday -- It's Tonight

Like Elvis and UFO sightings, we wouldn't want you to miss it!

LOS ANGELES -- In his relentless study of the Bible, 89-year-old Oakland-based Harold Camping has seen the signs. You may have also seen them recently.

They read, "Judgment Day: May 21, 2011 -- Cry mightly onto God," followed by a bright yellow stamp that proclaims, "THE BIBLE GUARANTEES IT!"

The end is near ... very near, according to the billboards and Camping. Indeed, it's this weekend.

The end of the world will be at exactly 6 p.m. on May 21, 2011, says Camping, who along with his organization, Family Radio, are behind those billboards across the country forecasting the Rapture this Saturday. The Rapture, the Last Days, Armageddon and the Final Days of Judgment are all interchangeable. It's when God will destroy the Earth to show his love for humanity.

Is that Eastern Standard or Pacific Standard Time?

Neither, says Camping, whom I interviewed recently for my online news show TYT Now. The Rapture is at 6 p.m. on May 21, 2011, where ever it's 6 p.m. first, with the "fantastically big" world-ending event taking place on a time zone by time zone basis.

That means we can expect the Rapture to start when it hits 6 p.m. at the International Dateline at 180 Longitude -- roughly the between Pago Pago, American Samoa, and Nuku'alofa, Tonga. We'll know it's Judgment Day because there will be an earthquake of previously unprecedented magnitude, Camping predicts.

So, according to these calculations, the Rapture will actually begin like a rolling brown out across the globe at 11 p.m. PST on Friday, May 20th. "Everyone will be weeping and wailing because they'll know in a few hours it'll come to their city," said Camping
.

One way or another, another 24 hours or so and we can go back to our nasty, brutish and short lives. Stay tuned.
