Harold Camping's Last End Times Prediction Fails – Oct. 21, 2011
This week marks the anniversary of when Family Radio President Harold Camping's final end times prediction failed to come to pass.
Camping had gotten the date for the Rapture wrong before, previously predicting that it would happen sometime in 1994 and then later on, May 21, 2011.
Following the latter prediction's failure, Camping told media that the end would actually come on Oct. 21 of that year. When this date also passed without incident, Camping announced he would halt such predictions.
Less than three years after his failed end times prophecy, Camping died at age 92, leaving behind his wife of 71 years and seven children.
