Broadcaster Who Predicted End of World Goes Silent: We Apologize For The Lack Of Technical Difficulty

My guess is he's just lying low, so no one knows he's still here, so then we'll all think, "Ohhhh, the Rapture came, but it was just far less people than we thought. Well, good on him for getting the one slot!"

Anyway, in case any of you hadn't heard, the world acted stupidly and failed to end properly.

With no sign of Judgment Day arriving as he had forecast, the 89-year-old California evangelical broadcaster and former civil engineer behind the pronouncement seemed to have gone silent on Saturday.

...

Camping previously made a failed prediction Jesus Christ would return to Earth in 1994.

Missed it by 14 years.

...

The Oakland, California, headquarters of the network of 66 U.S. stations was shuttered with a sign in the door that read "This Office is Closed. Sorry we missed you!"

...

Camping, whose deep sonorous voice is frequently heard on his radio network expounding the Bible, could not be reached for comment on Saturday.

Well, he said the apocalypse would begin in Asia at midnight, and Asia has had midnight come and go with no apparent rapture-like shenanigans.

Technically, he's still got until 6pm eastern -- 17 minutes left -- until he's proven wrong entirely.

So why don't I wait?

Well, if he's right, and the rapture comes, I don't get to tell my "We Apologize For The Lack of Technical Difficulty" joke, and I kind of like that joke.

I'd like to go out on that one.
