Friday's forecast doomsday is one of many visions predicting the end of the world through history.
Harold Camping -- The American pastor and Christan radio broadcaster famously predicted that the world would end on May 21, 2011, calling it the date of the "rapture" – when Jesus Christ returns to Earth and gathers the souls of those who have been saved. He previously predicted that Judgment Day would occur on or about Sept. 6, 1994.
