Update: Harold Camping Speaks
By 6:01pm on May 21, many were probably going throughout their day as planned—dinner, movies, or relaxing at home. It was a typical Saturday night except for the idea that a minute prior, it was supposed to be the beginning of the end. However, earth shattering earthquakes, the dead rising, and Harold Camping were all missing after the fact.
Harold Camping, the 89-year-old president of Family Radio, a California based station located in the Bay Area, hasn't offered much response to his failed Judgment day proclamation scheduled for May 21, 2011 at 6:00pm, only saying that it was a "really tough weekend," and that he was "looking for answers ... But now I have nothing else to say." Since the predicted doomsday failure, Camping has yet to address anyone about another botched prediction. Camping made a similar prophecy in 1994 but came up short.
According to reports, Camping was seen at his Oakland based radio station in the morning of May 21 where supports and disbelievers congregated outside the station minutes prior to the apocalypse. After that, Camping has basically gone AWOL. When it was all said and done, everyone was still alive.
Just minutes after the Judgment day deadline passed, hoards of Twitter users ran rampant with tags of #fail, #morons, and #letdown.
The president's camp has said that Camping will make a statement today, which many desperately hope will provide answers on the Judgment day failure.
According to the Los Angeles Times, $100-million dollars were spent on this campaign which included billboard posting across the United States.
