Oakland, California – April 1, 2013
Family Radio (a.k.a; Family Stations, Inc.) headquartered in Oakland, California has announced that the end of the world has been rescheduled for February 21, 2014. They base their prediction on scripture and on an alignment of planets that will occur on that date. Family Radio and its former CEO, Harold Camping, have previously predicted the end of the world to occur on September 1994, March 1995, May 21, 2011, and October 21, 2011.
According to Family Radio, the Earth will be pulled apart because Mercury, Venus, and Mars will all be in a line and Jupiter and Saturn will be on opposite side of Earth. A spokesperson for Family Radio said:
“We knew the end of the world would not be in 2012. This is what happens when you listen to amateurs and godless heathens.”
When asked about how they determined this date to be the end of the world, the spokesperson said:
“The Mayans essentially were correct, but they made an error when they converted to the metric system.”
It was explained that the prediction of December 21, 2012 placed a one in the place of a zero (12 becomes 02) for the month, and that led to the year being off by two, so instead of 12.21.2012 it should have been 02.21.2014. When asked how the metric system applied to the date, the spokesperson replied:
“It’s too complicated for the lay person to understand. Trust us, we’ve been doing this for a long time.”
