The end of the world is nigh; 21 May, to be precise. That's the date when Harold Camping, a preacher from Oakland, California, is confidently predicting the Second Coming of the Lord. At about 6pm, he reckons 2 per cent of the world's population will be immediately "raptured" to Heaven; the rest of us will get sent straight to the Other Place.


Most of us roll our eyes when we stumble across an apocalypse theory. But Family Radio has been proclaiming May 21, 2011, as the veritable Judgment Day, and the prediction has been getting a lot of attention. How could the network come up with such a specific date? NewsFeed crunched the numbers to see if the calculations could indeed signal the second coming of Christ, using passages from the New International Version of the Bible.

There were flyers distributed with people shouting slogans on judgment day in Singapore. Billboards predicted the end of the world in the U.S. Life was normal elsewhere but priests offered prayers in churches for everyone’s well being in Australia. People in Bangalore had stern reactions . “These are all rumours. There’s no scientific proof that the world will end. These predictions have also been made earlier” said Swati Kodukula, Student on Facebook. “It’s fake. The world anyways gets destroyed in parts with every terror attack and natural calamity so there is nothing like a ‘doomsday’” wrote Mythri Shankar, IT Professional on another social networking website.
