(Best Syndication News) - Harold Camping the 89-year-old founder of the Family Broadcast Network has been declaring the date, May 21, 2011, as Judgment Day. The day of the rapture is May 21, 2011 with the complete end of history on Earth being five months later. The rapture is when the Heavenly God gathers up his people before the final days.

Camping had written a book called “1994?” which he thought possibly could be the end but also suggested the year 2011. The reason he gives for the wrong prediction in 1994 was that he was still studying the Bible and did not have a definitive date, that is until now. Camping said that the Bible points to May 21, 2011 without a doubt.

Billboards and vehicles have been making appearances all last year promoting Judgment Day as May 21, 2011. On familyradio.com there are in-depth Bible studies referencing why Camping believes that this is the start of the end. The time period between May 21, 2011 and October 21, 2011 are the final five months of Earth’s history says Camping.

The reason for 2011, is based on several verses. In 2 Peter 3:8 is says,

“But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.”

Based on this verse, the end will happen in 7,000 years from the time mentioned in the Bible because each day equals 1,000 years. He adds 7,000 years on to 4,990 B.C. as the year that Noah survived the flood. Then he subtracts one year because of the shift from B.C. to A.D. having no year of zero.

So why is May 21st the month and the day? Camping said that was the day and the month when the clouds parted for Noah. According to the Bible verse Genesis 7:10-11 it says,

“And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the Flood were upon the earth. In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.”

There are several other Bible references given by Camping in his We are Almost There Bible study.

There are many Christians that have criticized Camping's predictions as being false.
