TGIF? End Of World Arrives Friday

The end is near, again, probably. So get ready, maybe. Harold Camping, the 90-year-old radio host who famously predicted the world would end last May on the 21st, has confirmed that he believes the world will now end Friday, "probably." After God failed to deliver on the appointed date last spring, Camping, facing mockery from the press and crushing disappointment and anger from his followers, quickly produced a revision to his predication, setting the new, for-real-this-time, date of Oct. 21. According to his revised explanation, the "spiritual rapture” did indeed occur on May 21, but the actual end-of-the-world rapture will occur Friday. Conveniently, the spiritual rapture passed virtually undetected to all but Camping/Abby Ohlheiser, Slatest. More here. (AP file photo)

Question: Are you ready for the big day tomorrow?
