Harold Camping, president of Family Stations Inc., apologized for his wrong May 21 Doomsday prediction but is sticking to his guns, now insisting the real Judgment day to be on October 21, 2011.
Harold Camping called the event last Saturday an "invisible judgment" and that something did occur - something "spiritual," not "physical." He added that the actual Apocalypse will now occur five months after May 21 which is on October 21st.
On the "real" Judgment day, a fireball will said to consume the earth and 200 million Christians will be carried up to heaven, according to Camping.
The 89 year-old retired engineer spent millions on more than 5,000 billboards and print ads worldwide to spread his May 21 Rapture prediction. A good portion of it said to have come from donations from his followers.
Through a book published in 1992, Camping previously predicted the Judgment Day to be happening in 1994. Justifying his first wrong prediction, he reportedly said "important subsequent biblical information was not yet known and there may be something he overlooked."
