What does Harold Camping say about May 21, 2011?
Harold Camping (89) believes that May 21 2011 will be the first day of a five month period of God's judgment on earth, ending on October 21, 2011. Camping is quoted as saying, "Beyond the shadow of a doubt, May 21 will be the date of the Rapture and the day of judgment".
Philosophy and teachings
Camping teaches that a Biblical calendar has been hidden according to Daniel 12:9, Revelation 22:10 detailing the imminent end of the world (with alleged Biblical evidence pointing to the date for the Rapture as May 21, 2011); of the “end of the church age” (which asserts that churches are no longer the vehicle used by God for salvation, 1 Peter 4:17); and of predestination (Ephesians 1:4-5), according to which God determined before the beginning of the world which individuals are to be saved. In Camping’s latest publications, he states that May 21, 2011 will be “the first day of the Day of Judgment” and October 21, 2011 will be the end of the world. Critics call Camping a “date-setter” following his own method of Biblical interpretation. Camping maintains that he follows the Bible’s method of Biblical interpretation.
The Harmonic Convergence by Mark HeleyAugust 16, 1987, or harmonic convergence, marks the ending of this period of descent and oppression and, for many interpreters, the beginning of a rapid period of transformation as we head toward the end of the great cycle that finishes on December 21, 2012. Though Shearer named the harmonic convergence date, he saw it as the end of the fifth world of the Aztec prophecy and the beginning of the sixth world. It was Jose Argüellés, the author of the bestselling book The Mayan Factor: Path Beyond Technology, who coined the term harmonic convergence and helped turn it into what became a remarkable, globally networked, grassroots event and defining moment in the creation of the New Age movement.

Lets say that the Bible is real. ( Which I do believe it is.)
Then Harold Camping would have to believe every word in it? Correct?
OK, Jesus said himself, NO ONE will know the date. Only God.
Harold is a false prophet sent from hell to instill fear and disbelief.
