Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) scientist Mario Raymundo said that there is no astronomical event that can be associated with the prediction of US evangelical Christian broadcaster Harold Camping that the world would end on May 21, 2011.
“The planetary alignment is too far to affect us. As for his prediction of a massive quake, there is no basis for it. It won’t happen. This is not true,” he said. Harold Camping, 89, head of the Christian radio network Family Stations Inc. previously made a failed prediction that Jesus Christ would return to Earth in 1994.
