That's not the name of a hot new local metal band. It’s the doomsday scenario predicted by Harold Camping. Camping is one of the founders of <a href="http://www.familyradio.com/index2.html" target="_blank">Family Radio</a>, and he says the scripture backs up his prediction.<br> <br> Calling the date of the end times could be considered blasphemous or spot on.
