"It's the end of the world as we know it..."

Here's a video clip of Mr. Camping explaining what the end of the world will be like. Mr. Camping explains exactly what will happen on the last day. This video clip is from an interview in Camping's Oakland office. From the article which accompanies this video:

"He's also unafraid to talk about the toll his evangelical beliefs have taken on his personal life. Camping has seven children and grandchildren into the double digits, yet only his daughter Susan, who works as his executive secretary, shares his take on the Bible. 'She's the only one who's with me on this,' he told me."

Also from the article is this statement, which is supposed to be a joke, I think a bit more context would've been helpful:

"It may not come across in this first conversation, but Camping owns a dry, grandfatherly sense of humor. "Think of all the depravity that's going on in the world right now," he told me. 'All the sin, all the hypocrisy, all the sexual immorality -- and I'm only talking about the Roman Catholic church!' "

Yeah, so, uh, there's not going to be a final Great Day (of Judgement) when the wicked will be cast into the lake of fire to spend eternity in total separation from God? They will all be annihilated never to exist again as conscious, sentient beings?
