Just when you thought it was safe to return to controversial modern discussions of heaven and hell, doomsday evangelist Harold Camping has emerged with yet another promise that the end of the world is looming.

Like many whose prophecies fail, Camping did not admit that he was wrong. In fact, he said that Judgment Day was May 21—in a spiritual sense. Although we didn’t see Jesus crack open the sky and rapture the Church, Camping is nevertheless convinced his prediction was accurate.
“On May 21, this last weekend, this is where the spiritual aspect of it really comes through,” Camping said. “God again brought judgment on the world. We didn’t see any difference but God brought Judgment Day to bear upon the whole world. The whole world is under Judgment Day and it will continue right up until Oct. 21, 2011 and by that time the whole world will be destroyed.”
