    Hey everyone, it's time for the world to end again! Are you ready? 

    Family Radio evangelist and Oakland minister, Harold Camping is saying today could be the day the Rapture arrives. 

    Camping's original apocalyptic date was May 21st, but as the day came and went, he realized he may have made some miscalculations.

    To be more specific, his website says Judgment "Day" is actually 153 days: 

    "We are living in a most unusual time. On May 21, of 2011, mankind entered into the Day of Judgment. This ‘day’ will last for 5 months (153 days) until October 21, 2011. The Bible is teaching us that this period of time is Judgment Day!"

    Based on that, today is the last day of judgment. Now what?
