Well... I guess we've reached the end of the road...
According to Harold Camping, an 89 year-old former civil engineer and construction foreman, the Judgement Day will come this Saturday May 21st. Camping is now a U.S. evangelical Christian broadcaster, who previously made a prediction that Jesus Christ would return to earth in 1994, has encouraged his supporters to post 2,200 billboards across the country spreading his word.
Camping told Reuters; "We know without any shadow of a doubt it is going to happen."
His predictions are based upon his study of the bible and the time-line correlation between ancient and modern times. Camping says that earthquakes will begin on Saturday and true believers will be whisked away to heaven and the non-believers will be left behind to pick up the pieces of what's left.
Mr. Camping has already got his Saturday planned, he told Reuters; "I'll probably try to be very near a TV or a radio or something," he said. "I'll be interested in what's happening on the other side of the world as this begins."
Now, regardless of whether I believe his Doomsday prediction or not, which I don't, this makes perfect topical subject matter for our next mix. I have pulled out a load of Armageddon and Judgement Day tunes and assembled them in one listener-friendly Rapture mix... this is what you're going to hear...
