Is Judgment Day upon us?

Some say yes, thanks to Christian radio broadcaster Harold Camping, who has gained a following of firm believers after he announced that clues from the Bible pinpoint May 21, 2011 as the iconic Judgment Day. This is the day on which Christ is expected to return to Earth to separate the good from the bad. Those deemed "good" will be on their way up to heaven, yet those who have sinned against God will be left behind to live for five more months, denied entry into the afterparty that lies beyond the pearly gates. Then come Oct. 21, the universe and all those left in it will cease to be forever.

Of course, this is not the first time a definitive doomsday has been calculated, even by Harold Camping himself, yet so far, every other prediction has obviously missed the mark. So while the patterns of history suggest that this Judgment Day, too, will come and go just as any other day, let's investigate the Numerology of this exact date to see if the numbers at play support this alleged Rapture.

Remember, May 21, 2011 is not being prophesized as the end of the world. Rather, it is marked as the beginning of the end, with the supposed end predicted for Oct. 21, 2011.

May 21, 2011 is a 3 Universal Day within a 9 Month and a 4 Year. The most influential number of the day is the 3, a number that represents communication -- perhaps, in this case, communication straight from God. Yet the 3 also stands for creativity and lightheartedness -- a childlike state that is far from the heaviness associated with Judgment Day (heavy unless, of course, you're part of the 3% of humanity expected to be saved on this day).

The next most influential number at play is the 9, a number of humanity and awareness. In line with the Rapture, the 9 would support the concept of awareness -- after we are judged, we will become aware of where we stand in the eyes of God. However, the compassion and generosity associated with the 9 certainly don't sync up with the criticism and judgment the day of Rapture is expected to bring.
