From what I have read Camping had made a similar forecast back in '94 and when it didn't happen he claimed that he had the math wrong and it will probably be no different this time. There are always people forecasting doom and gloom which is why I ignore all of it. But then I don't really put a lot of stock in the Bible or any other religious books, most if not all are someone's interpretation of something that happened or what was written so long ago in some lost language. Besides the Bible was rewritten in some cases to suit political agendas.
