Void of catastrophic mishap, scientists give earth 500,000 years until heat from the sun makes our planet intolerable for most life. As for Harold J. Camping who has predicted the "end of the world" for the second time, this time he is 90 years old and it is about the end of his world.
From Miller-McCune Smart Journalism 5/17/11. "If you are reading this after May 21, congratulations. You have survived yet another doomsday prediction. For the past several months, Family Radio Worldwide has been spreading the message that Judgment Day is scheduled for May 21, 2011. This news probably comes as a surprise to those of you who thought the Mayan calendar picked the winter solstice of Dec. 21, 2012, for the big finish. Or at least a shock for those of you who sat through the 2009 disaster movie 2012 and thought it might be a documentary."
Scared, still think Camping's "judgment day" prediction is plausible, based upon his allegorical selective date, mathematical mumbo-jumbo? Looking for religious assurance? Spend 55 minutes listing to the sanity and reason antidote from Rev Steve Marquedant, Sovereign Grace Baptist Church, Ontario, CA. Be troubled no more, or search for more information on the internet; or just wait-out the fear until Sunday, May 22nd.
As for the Mayan calendar which ends December 21, 2012, the more likely prediction from that past civilization was "its time to start a new calendar".
