End of the World: This Saturday

Cancel the barbecue

Our time is up on this planet, according to a Christian group in the US.

Howard Camping, a minister and the president of conservative group Family Radio, is adamant that Judgment Day will happen on May 21 2011.

Worse news, this isn't an educated guess from Camping and Co. Apparently the Bible "guarantees it".

He said: "On May 21, there's going to be a terrific earthquake way, way greater than anything else the Earth has ever experienced and that will be the beginning of Judgment Day.The rest of the world will know instantly that Judgment Day has begun because all of the earthquake sensors will pick that up instantly." (In fairness he's right).

Apparently all who believe his claims are going to be fine, but those that don't will face five months of misery on Earth, before the end of the world in October.

Still, we get the summer then.
