According to Reverend Harold Camping the world will end Friday.

This is the fourth time Camping has made a claim to the world ending and the last three did not come to fruition.

Initially his claim was for May 21, and after that did not happen he changed the story to Oct. 21 as the physical end while the May date was a spiritual end, citing that no one can be saved after that date.

After the initial shock of failing with his prediction, Camping said he was "flabbergasted" and was reconfiguring his calculations.

However, this time around Camping does not seem too sure about his claims and for the first time is using "maybe" and "probably" among the words he tosses around concerning the final days of Earth.

"I do believe we're getting very near the very end. Oct. 21, that's coming very shortly, that looks like it will be, at this point, it will be the final end of everything," the 90-year-old preacher said in a podcast on his radio show.

On one of these podcasts Camping threw out a weary prediction saying, "Probably there will be no pain suffered by anyone because of their rebellion against God. I really am beginning to think as I've restudied these matters that there's going to be no big display of any kind," he said. "The end is going to come very, very quietly."

On June 9 Camping suffered from a stroke and although in good health now, he never returned to full time broadcasting, but most of the time uses pre-taped segments from previous shows.

Camping's method of predicting the end times comes after applying math equations and hidden clues in the Bible that reveal secrets. An example of this was reported by the Huffington Post's Jaweed Kaleem back when the first predictions were coming up,

"Complex Biblical numerology partially based on a literal reading of the King James Bible and partially based and obscure interpretation of the book’s many symbols form the basis for Camping's warnings. He says certain numbers repeat in the Bible along with particular themes. The number five means "atonement;" ten equals "completeness;" 17 is "heaven."
