According to this lot, the world will end on the 21st of May 2011. Bugger! That blows my week-end. I was going to see "Thor" this week-end too.

Some say May 21 could be the end of the world as we know it (and some feel fine)

Some people around the world are preparing for what they say will be the end of time. These people are quitting their jobs, liquidating their assets, saying their final goodbyes and spreading the word: Judgment Day is Saturday.
The Judgment Day movement is being spearheaded by Harold Camping and his organization, Family Radio. Camping, who is 89 years old, is a former civil engineer turned religious figure who predicts the end of the world based on a numerical analysis of the Bible. He previously predicted that the world might end in 1994.
Gunther von Harringa, who runs Bible Ministries International, which produces content for Family Radio, describes the horror that he says will engulf the world this Saturday as God punishing man for all their sins.
"God will open up all the graves around the world," Harringa said. "The entire surface of the earth will be littered with the decay of the people that died."
