I don't think I'd buy it.  Who's to say it's not some alien or alternate-dimension being with the midas touch?
If you're willing to see that possibility.... to what actual lengths would Jesus have to go to prove to you that he is indeed Jesus?

Well, on one hand Jesus should have the ability to make me know he's jesus and shouldn't have to do anything extravagant to prove it.  On the other hand, any ol' alien with mind control rays could do that I'm sure.

Also I'm pretty sure Jesus is a fictional character anyway, so it would really take an act of god (pun intended) to sway me.

Meaning in numbers
By Camping's understanding, the Bible was dictated by God and every word and number carries a spiritual significance. He noticed that particular numbers appeared in the Bible at the same time particular themes are discussed.

The number 5, Camping concluded, equals "atonement." Ten is "completeness." Seventeen means "heaven." Camping patiently explained how he reached his conclusion for May 21, 2011.

"Christ hung on the cross April 1, 33 A.D.," he began. "Now go to April 1 of 2011 A.D., and that's 1,978 years."

Camping then multiplied 1,978 by 365.2422 days - the number of days in each solar year, not to be confused with a calendar year.

Next, Camping noted that April 1 to May 21 encompasses 51 days. Add 51 to the sum of previous multiplication total, and it equals 722,500.

Camping realized that (5 x 10 x 17) x (5 x 10 x 17) = 722,500.

Or put into words: (Atonement x Completeness x Heaven), squared.

"Five times 10 times 17 is telling you a story," Camping said. "It's the story from the time Christ made payment for your sins until you're completely saved.

"I tell ya, I just about fell off my chair when I realized that," Camping said.

Just back to the original OP, the guy picked 1st April because that is Easter day at present. However we have changed from the Julien Calendar to the Gregorian calendar and in 1752 we missed out 11 days to realign everything. There was no 3rd-13th of September in 1752.

and it seems he has just found a calculator, punched some numbers in and repeated until he got a date a short while in the future.

My favourite is the Mayan prophecy. Very clever how they worked our that on dec 21st 2012 the sun would sit directly on both the galactic equinox and the Milkyway at the same time. A very rare event. At the exact same time, their long count gets to zero. Much more eloquent. Very cleverly worked out. Worth a read below.

David Icke beat them to the punch declaring himself the son of God in April 1991.  :o

I think if I was the son of God, I'd do a bit more to convince people, like turn the sky green or do some hovering.

I got a paper on this. They claimed that the world would end 7 days after the flood. A day to God is 1000 years. So -5012 + 7000 - 1 (to take into account the fact that year 0 isn't a year), = 2011. Then there was more Christian bullshit on the month and the day, and I forget what, but there's something in the bible to tell us why.

Well Genesis 7: 11 gives us the day and month of the deluge. Camping's date however for the deluge is well off, he seems to be extending the Septuagint. The Masoretic (which the the most accurate) actually dates the deluge to 2350BC, not 5012BC.

The Bible tells us though that the date for return of Christ can not be known by man.

Matthew 24:36 quite clearly states : ''No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Fatherů''

Those putting a date on this therefore fall under the ''false prophets'' (charlatans) the Bible tells us about.

Matthew 24: 24  ''For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets... they shall deceive the very elect''

Damn, I know so many spoofs of this kind of thinking but I can't remember any of them. wait...well, I guess one of the obvious one kind of is the South Park alien episode with Jeff Goldblum. But I can't understand anyone who swallows this tripe. Like I said, it's just like the bible code where you can find anything when you arrange the search parameters the perfect way.
