Follow the Math: The World Ends Today (May 21, 2011)

As you know, radio host Harold Camping has told us that the world is ending today. Please follow along with his ironclad logic:
  • The number five equals "atonement", the number ten equals "completeness", and the number seventeen equals "heaven".
  • Christ is said to have hung on the cross on April 1, 33 AD. The time between April 1, 33 AD and April 1, 2011 is 1,978 years.
  • If 1,978 is multiplied by 365.2422 days (the number of days in a solar year, not to be confused with the lunar year), the result is 722,449.
  • The time between April 1 and May 21 is 51 days.
  • 51 added to 722,449 is 722,500.
  • (5 × 10 × 17)^2 or (atonement × completeness × heaven)^2 also equals 722,500.

I think his math is correct, but how's his logic?

(Glad I published this before the Rapture! Whew!!)

  1. Look! I came up with the same number by two different methods, so I MUST be right!!
