Well, here it is at last! Thanks to the revelation from a complicated, bible-based, mathematical equation, we now know that the world will enter the beginning of “the end” tomorrow. (There will be five months of upheaval for those of us remaining behind.)
For those of you wondering, here’s the equation:
“The equation he came up with is a self-made formula of numbers derived from a series of significant religious events – the founding of the state of Israel in 1948, Jesus’ order to “flee into the mountains” in Matthew 24, and the jubilee year of 1994.
The number five, says Camping, represents atonement.
10 represents completeness.
17 represents heaven.
“A genius could not understand this,” he said, “because God has to open your mind to allow you to understand this.”
In Fitzpatrick’s book, Camping argues that the Bible is filled with special meaning.
Using the three numbers, if you multiply atonement, completeness and heaven, and then, multiply the sum by itself again, you end up with 722,500 i.e. (5 x 10 x 17) x (5 x 10 x 17) = 722,500.
If you add the number of days on from the crucifixion, you arrive at, at least in Camping’s view, May 21, 2011, the day of the end of the world.
Personal opinion: This is the third time he’s said this and I’m pretty sure he’ll be wrong this time, too. If not, well, not much I can do about it, except use the next 5 months to get as safe as I can and maybe survive the earth’s disasters.
What are you going to do with your remaining time?
Entirely happy to know you! (Just in case 😉 )
