Camping schedule for October: The Halting Problem

Ig Nobel Prize-winner Harold Camping repeats his prediction that the world will end on October 21, 2011. Mr. Camping is an expert in what mathematicians call The Halting Problem. He gives you this audio greeting [click to hear it]. His website says:

Thus we can be sure that the whole world, with the exception of those who are presently saved (the elect), are under the judgment of God, and will be annihilated together with the whole physical world on October 21, 2011.

Mr. Camping shared the 2011 Ig Nobel Prize in mathematics with a number of colleagues. The prize was awarded to:

Dorothy Martin of the USA (who predicted the world would end in 1954),Pat Robertson of the USA (who predicted the world would end in 1982), Elizabeth Clare Prophet of the USA (who predicted the world would end in 1990), Lee Jang Rim of KOREA (who predicted the world would end in 1992), Credonia Mwerinde of UGANDA (who predicted the world would end in 1999), and Harold Camping of the USA (who predicted the world would end on September 6, 1994 and later predicted that the world will end on October 21, 2011), for teaching the world to be careful when making mathematical assumptions and calculations.
