"The world's about to end, so let's go on a cruise to Bermuda!"
A group of 30 followers of a California preacher who insists the world will start to implode next month decided to take their message to the vacation isle before it’s too late.
But unlike other visitors, Pastor Harold Camping’s disciples spent their two days in the sun handing out pamphlets and CDs predicting that judgment day will come on May 21, reports Bermuda’s newspaper, The Royal Gazette.
Camping is convinced of the date because it comes exactly 722,500 days after the Crucifixion. That figure is important, he says, because it is reached by multiplying three holy numbers — 5, 10 and 17 — several times. He also predicted the world would end in September 1994 but now says his calculations at the time were wrong.
Simeon Daliy, leader of the group which traveled to Bermuda on the luxury cruise ship Explorer of the Seas, said it was “just not possible” that the world would continue. “What is coming is destruction.”
“Those who have not been chosen for salvation will perish,” predicted Daliy, a former taxi driver from Queens, NY. “The earthquake we will see will run for five months. Lots of people are going to die. What happened in Japan will be like a picnic compared to what we are going to see.”
