Biography Harold Egbert Camping
Camping was born in Colorado and moved at an early age to California.He earned a B.S. degree in Civil Engineering from the University of California, Berkeley (1942). He and his family were members of the Christian Reformed Church until 1988. During this time he served as an elder and Sunday school teacher at the Alameda Bible Fellowship.
In 1958, Camping joined with other individuals of Christian Reformed, Bible Baptist, and conservative-Christian Presbyterian backgrounds to purchase an FM radio station in San Francisco, California, KEAR, then at 97.3 MHz, to broadcast traditional Christian Gospel to the conservative Protestant community and minister to the general public.Through the 1960s, Family Radio acquired six additional FM stations and seven other AM stations under guidelines established by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
Harold Egbert Camping ridiculous predictions about doomsday at May 21,2011
Camping gained notoriety owing to his prediction that the Rapture would take place on May 21, 2011, and that the end of the world would subsequently take place five months later on October 21, 2011. Followers of Camping claimed that around 200 million people (approximately 3% of the world’s population) would be raptured.
Reuters reported on May 21 that the curtains were drawn in Camping’s house in Alameda, California and that no one was answering the door. Camping emerged from his home on May 22, saying that he was “flabbergasted” that the Rapture did not occur, that he was “looking for answers,” and would say more when he returned to work on May 23.
On May 23, 2011 in an appearance before the press, Camping stated he has reinterpreted his prophecy. In his revised claim, May 21 was a “spiritual” judgment day, and the world will still come to an end October 21, 2011. Camping said his company would not return money donated by followers to publicize the failed May 21 prediction, stating: “We’re not at the end. Why would we return it?”
Atheist and skeptic groups such as American Atheists and IIG gathered across the country with signs attracting attention away from Camping’s followers who were in seclusion. “The issue is the Bible is mythology,” said Larry Hicok, state director of the American Atheists. Mainstream Christian groups have distanced themselves from Camping’s predictions. Let’s just prove inconsequential prediction Harold Egbert Camping of the coming apocalypse in the month of May was. Since none of that can actually predict the coming apocalypse. Although using any tool or any science. Only God knows.
