May 21st, 2011 - THE RAPTURE?
You may not want to plan too far ahead today! A church group in the United States called Family Radio has predicted a huge eathquake for May 21, 2011 that signals the beginning of the end of the world.
Family Radio has even put up billboards in Montreal and Quebec City announcing the end at 6pm today. But they've made these predictions before -- and so far, they've been wrong. So far!
To explain the rapture, the end of the world and the history of apocalyptic theories, we invited in Lorenzo DiTomasso. He's a specialist in 'apocalypticism', and soon to be the next Chair of the Religion department at Concordia University.
