Instead of sheep entrails or tarot cards, Harold uses bible math. SFChronicle (01.01.10), via Huffington:
"(Harold) Camping, 88, has scrutinized the Bible for almost 70 years and says he has developed a mathematical system to interpret prophecies hidden within the Good Book. One night a few years ago, Camping, a civil engineer by trade, crunched the numbers and was stunned at what he'd found: The world will end May 21, 2011." Biblical scholar's date for rapture: May 21, 2011Back in 1994, Harold predicted Jesus was going to return on September 6. Believe it or not, it didn't happen. Harold said his math was wrong then, but this time it's right. Well then. We suppose we could make some crack about superstitious peasants, but that would be rather uncharitable.
