Eighty-nine-year-old Harold Camping predicted the rapture once before back in 1994. Of course the followers of this evangelical broadcaster now say
that the former prediction was just an intermediate stage. This time, however, Camping says he is absolutely sure of himself. He is even going so far as to use billboards and media outlets to spread his own good word. The website for his network, Family Radio Worldwide, reads:
"We learn from the Bible that Holy God plans to rescue about 200 million people…On the first day of the Day of Judgment (May 21, 2011) they will be caught up (raptured) into Heaven because God had great mercy for them."
For those willing to take an objective look at Camping and his predictions, it is worth noting that this man is indeed seventeen years older than he was in 1994 when he made his first fall-through prediction. It is not the usual trend that the performance of a person’s mind increases in strength with age. At the very most, one maintains the same level of performance, and we have already seen how far that has gotten Mr. Camping and his dedicated followers.
