There is a Christian preacher from California that is going around saying that the world is going to end on May 21, 2011. The preacher, who name is Harold Camping, has attracted many followers including Christians. Him and his group called The Family Radio have been putting billboards in many major cities trying to warn people about the end. This group has attracted many followers including Christians, but most people dismiss this prediction as utter nonsense.
This is not the first time that a religious leader has tried to predict the end of the world. Joseph Smith, who is known as being one of the founders of the Mormon religion predicted that the world will end in 1843. Evangelist Pat Robertson was convinced that the world was going to end in 1982. One of the most recent scares happened in 2000, when many people thought that the world would end. The bottom line is that people have been trying to predict when the world would end for many decades now. The world is chaotic and is getting crazier by the day, but there is one thing for sure; it will end when people least expect it and not when a religious leader says it will.
