Harold Camping – 1994
Before predicting that May 21, 2011 would mark the Rapture, Family Radio President Harold Camping argued that at some point in 1994, the end would come.
At one point, Camping said that he was "99.9% certain" that the end was coming in 1994, basing his reasoning off of various mathematical calculations he used with numbers in the Bible.
"Camping is totally arbitrary in his treatment of texts. There is no basis for his assertion that the end will come in 1994," noted a critique published in 1993.
"We must listen to Jesus when he says that we must always be prepared for the end because it might happen at any moment—though it could also take place in the distant future."
