IT’S OVER

Camping Group Stops Rapture Predictions

Does it mean something if a group of people predicting the end of the world stops saying that will happen? Family Radio, an organization founded by doomsday preacher Harold Camping, has cleared all references to the Rapture on their website and instead offered vaguer predictions. Camping had famously predicted the end of the world would come on May 21, and then tweaked his scenario when the world didn’t end to say that it would come on Oct. 21. Family Radio had supported his predictions, and had insisted final judgment would come on Oct. 21. But despite the group’s about-face, Camping’s followers said they still believed Judgment Day had occurred on May 21.
