Camping has presented several numerological arguments, or biblical "proofs", in favor of the May 21 end time. A civil engineer by training, Camping states he has attempted to work out mathematically-based prophecies in the Bible for decades. In an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle he explained "... I was an engineer, I was very interested in the numbers. I'd wonder, 'Why did God put this number in, or that number in?' It was not a question of unbelief, it was a question of, 'There must be a reason for it.
In 1970 Camping dated the Great Flood to 4990 BC. Using this date, taking the statement in Genesis 7:4 ("Seven days from now I will send rain on the earth") to be a prediction of the end of the world, and combining it with 2 Peter 3:8 ("With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day"), Camping concludes that the end of the world will occur in 2011, 7000 years from 4990 BC. Camping takes the 17th day of the second month mentioned in Genesis 7:11 to be May 21, and hence predicts the rapture to occur on this date.
Another argument that Camping uses in favor of the May 21 date is as follows:
The number five equals "atonement", the number ten equals "completeness", and the number seventeen equals "heaven".
Christ is said to have hung on the cross on April 1, 33 AD. The time between April 1, 33 AD and April 1, 2011 is 1,978 years.
If 1,978 is multiplied by 365.2422 days (the number of days in a solar, as distinct from lunar, year), the result is 722,449.
The time between April 1 and May 21 is 51 days.
51 added to 722,449 is 722,500.
(5 × 10 × 17)2 or (atonement × completeness × heaven)2 also equals 722,500.
Camping says that 5 × 10 × 17 is telling us a "story from the time Christ made payment for our sins until we're completely saved."
Camping has not been precise about the exact timing of the event, saying that "maybe" we can know the hour. He has suggested that "days" in the Bible refer to daylight hours particularly. Another account says the "great earthquake" which signals the start of the Rapture will "start in the Pacific Rim at around the 6 p.m. local time hour, in each time zone."
In Camping's book 1994?, self-published in 1992, he predicted that the End Times would come in September 1994 (variously reported as September 4 or September 6). When the Rapture failed to occur on the appointed day, Camping said he had made a mathematical error.

US HAS GONE CRAZY.
some point during this period, a devastating earthquake hits California*
had been warning for years that it wasn't a matter of "if"
- but "when".
[/b] The earthquake
is centred on the Los Angeles basin, and is of sufficient magnitude
to cause over $100 billion worth of damage. Many thousands of buildings
are destroyed and there is widespread damage to roads, infrastructure,
energy and water supplies. Hundreds of people are killed, while thousands
more are injured. This disaster
comes as California
is already going through a fiscal crisis - plunging the state into bankruptcy.
forces withdraw from Afghanistan
British Armed Forces have played a substantial role in the Afghanistan
War. Their efforts in the country have been huge: second only to the
U.S. in terms of troop numbers.
2001 and 2010, over 325 British forces personnel and MOD civilians were
killed, exceeding the death toll of the Falklands War. Nearly 4,000
were injured. From 2011
onwards, a phased withdrawal begins - and a transitioning of districts
and provinces - with Afghan forces leading security operations by 2014
and the last remaining British troops gone by 2015.*

is devastated by a 9.0 magnitude quake and tsunami
11th March 2011, a 9.0-magnitude quake and subsequent tsunami hit the
east of Japan, killing over 15,000 and leaving another 9,000 missing.
Tsunami warnings were issued in 50 countries and territories, while
emergencies were declared at four nuclear power plants.
[/b] It was
the most powerful known earthquake to have hit Japan, and one of the
five most powerful in the world since modern record-keeping began in
1900. The quake triggered extremely destructive tsunami waves, in some
cases travelling up to 10 km (6 mi) inland. The earthquake moved the
entire Honshu region 2.4 m (8 ft) east and shifted the Earth on its
axis by 10 cm (4 in). As well
as loss of life and destruction of infrastructure, the tsunami caused
a number of nuclear incidents. By far the most serious was a level 7
event and 20 km (12 mi) evacuation zone around the Fukushima I Plant.
This became the worst nuclear disaster since Chernobyl.* The overall
cost exceeded $300 bn, making it the most expensive natural disaster
on record. Over 125,000 buildings were damaged or destroyed, while heavy
damage was inflicted on roads and rail routes. Around 4.4m households
in northeastern Japan were left without electricity and 1.5m without
Prime Minister Naoto Kan said, "In the 65 years after the end of
World War II, this is the toughest and the most difficult crisis for
Japan." The Bank of Japan offered ¥15 trillion (US$183 bn)
to the banking system in an effort to normalise market conditions. The impact
on the wider global economy was considerable - but would only truly
be felt in July 2011, when the next quarterly earnings figures were
released. These showed huge losses due to supply chain disruptions,
exacerbated by rising commodity prices.*

population reaches 7 billion
October 2011, the global population reaches 7 billion. Over 74 million
people are now being added to the world each year - equivalent to the
entire population of Turkey. On current trends, the population is forecast
to reach over 10 billion by 2100. Most of the increase is from high-fertility
countries in sub-Saharan Africa.*
Space Shuttle fleet is retired
year sees the last of the Space Shuttle missions to the International
Space Station and the subsequent retirement of the fleet. Two private
companies - SpaceX
Sciences Corporation - will take over the remaining work, using
cheaper disposable rockets. These will provide cargo delivery flights
to the ISS up to 2016.

web has a greater reach than television
In the previous decade, a rapid and irreversible shift towards
web-based news outlets saw the decline of traditional print-based media.
This growth has accelerated further - such that even television is now
having less reach than the Internet when it comes to news reporting. Television
and the Internet are in fact now converging together as one.
Improving bandwidth and the continued growth of mobile technologies
are driving much of this change. Multi-touch
surface computing is available to the mass market
These coffee table-sized devices have been appearing in business
venues for a couple of years already. They are now becoming cheap enough
for the consumer market. This computing
platform responds to natural hand gestures and real world physical objects.
It has a 360-degree user interface and a large reflective surface, with
projectors underneath which project images onto its underside. Cameras
in the machine's housing record reflections of infrared light from objects
and fingertip movements. The surface
is capable of object recognition, object/finger orientation recognition
and tracking, and is multi-touch and is multi-user. Users can interact
with the machine by touching or dragging their fingertips and objects
such as paintbrushes across the screen, or by placing and moving placed
objects. The platform can respond to over 50 touches at a time. The use
of multi-touch technology is increasing exponentially during this time.
For example, sales of touchscreen phones will rise from 200,000 in 2006
to over 21 million by 2012, while iPads and other tablet devices are
seeing similar growth. The
first open petaflop supercomputer comes online
"Blue Waters", the first open scientific research
supercomputer to sustain one petaflop performance (a quadrillion calculations
per second), comes online at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.*
While the military supercomputer "Roadrunner" achieved this
speed in 2008, its use was restricted to limited climate change problems
before being placed in a classified environment, to study the aging
functionality of nuclear weapons stockpiles.*
Blue Waters, on the other hand, is open to university access and runs
a range of science/engineering applications. Batteries
that charge in seconds
A new manufacturing process for lithium-ion batteries has led
to smaller, lighter batteries capable of being charged within seconds.
Mobile phones, laptops and other digital devices benefit tremendously
from this. Electric cars, too, can take advantage of this greatly improved
technology, which now offers far greater convenience. Uptake of green
vehicles therefore begins to increase significantly from this point
onwards. Solar and wind power generation efficiency is also boosted,
as the batteries can be used to store surplus energy. 22
nanometre chips enter mass production
Intel begins production of a new 22nm microprocessor - code-named
Ivy Bridge - which is the first high-volume chip to use 3-D transistors.
A nanometre is one-billionth of a metre. The successor to 32nm, these
will continue the trend of Moore's Law for years to come. These new
"Tri-Gate" transistors are a fundamental departure from the
two-dimensional "planar" transistor structure that has been
used in the past. They operate at lower voltage, with lower leakage,
providing an unprecedented combination of improved performance and energy
efficiency. Dramatic innovations across a range of electronics - from
computers to mobile phones, household appliances and medical devices
- will now be possible.* [b]USB
3.0 is widely available
devices using this type of connection have a transfer speed of nearly
[/b] This compares
with 480 Mbit/s for USB 2.0 and 1.5 Mbit/s for USB 1.0. Consumer-level
robotics are booming
Thanks to falling costs, this decade sees the beginning of
robots entering mainstream society. From 2008 to 2011, sales of professional
and personal service robots more than double - from 5.5 million to over
11.5 million.* Initially
popular in Japan, Korea and the Far East, they are now spreading to
Western homes too. Some robots clean carpets or mow the lawn; others
help busy professionals entertain children or pets; other machines feed
and bathe the elderly and incapacitated. World's
first commercial spaceport
A new chapter in space exploration begins with the opening
America - the world's first purpose-built commercial spaceport.
This offers sub-orbital spaceflights to the paying public. Costing
almost $225 million, the facility is built on 27 square miles (70 km2)
of state-owned desert near Upham, an uninhabited part of New Mexico. Among the
various companies involved is Richard Branson's Virgin
Galactic. Travelling at over 2,600mph (4,200km/h), the spacecraft
carry up to six passengers at a time, to a height of approximately 68
miles (110km), using a single hybrid rocket motor. When maximum altitude
is reached, the engines are switched off, and the passengers can experience
up to six minutes of zero-G whilst looking down on the Earth. The ships
use a feathered re-entry system, feasible due to the low speed of re-entry,
and are designed to re-enter the atmosphere at any angle, for maximum
safety. In the
next decade, a new generation of ships will be developed capable of
reaching much higher orbits. A few years after that, trips around the
Moon will become possible. Initially,
the flights are very expensive (around $200,000 each). However, competition
between the companies involved will greatly reduce costs, making them
affordable to the majority of people later this century.
Above: SpaceShipTwo, in operation from 2011. China's
Three Gorges Dam is fully operational
Costing almost $30 billion, this is the largest power plant
ever built. It has been in planning for nearly a century. The dam
body was completed in 2006 and the originally planned components of
the project were finished in 2008. Six additional generators were installed
underground in 2011 - taking its total electric generating capacity
to over 22 gigawatts. The project
management team and the Chinese state regard the project as a historic
engineering, social and economic success: a breakthrough in the design
of large turbines and a significant move toward the reduction of greenhouse
gas emissions. It will remove some 100 million tonnes of CO2 and 2 million
tonnes of SO2 that would otherwise have been generated by coal-fired
power stations. However,
the dam has also flooded archaeological and cultural sites, displaced
1.4 million people, and is causing significant ecological changes, including
an increased risk of landslides. The building of the dam has been a
controversial topic, both in China and abroad.*

Yellowstone National Park is probably the most likely doomsday event currently, its postulated that a super volcano lies underneath and its catastrophic apparence is said to be imminent. Although the colossal explosion wont end humanity, scientists believe there will be so much ash and dust will going into the atmosphere, that the sun will be blocked out, and its energy unable to reach us. Earth would gradually become a dark and baron wasteland...
Beyond that, I would probably say comet/asteriod collision with the earth is another possible threat, although even then, space being as vast as its is, its still a long shot...
Given the nature of humans, and the way the world is, I would say the two most likely scenarios are probably rather more unspectacular. One is our own doing, A worldwide Nuclear warefare, the second would be a global pandemic. Ironic really...that life has such a need for destruction...
However for the mean time, I think that we have to resign ourselves to the fact that we are going to continue living for at least a while
My own personal opinion? There wont be a doomsday event until the sun goes red giant, by which time we may have already fly a kite off somewhere else in the cosmos
(Guys its about time you lost these censors, its pathetic man...)
