Today (September 6th, 1994) is the final day of the Tribulation, and the
end of the world should be here by the end of September, according to Dr.
Harold Camping who has a talk show on KEAR Radio (106.9 in San Francisco)
every night around 7:00.
There will be obvious signs in the stars some time today, to indicate that
the end is coming. Camping explains that these will not be some obscure
signs, but something flashy that will cause anguish around the world as
everyone realizes that the end is near. He's not sure exactly what form
the signs will take, and he's also not sure whether they'll take place at
the same time around the world, or whether each area will see the signs
at the same time in its own timezone.
Camping has been predicting this for quite some time, and as of last night
he still hadn't backed down. Last night's show was interesting because
when people asked questions, Camping would say things like:
We've got a pamphlet on that we can send you, uh, but -- of course --
it won't reach you in time, so you'd better just pray. May we take
our next call now.
