No, you weren't Left Behind. The end of the world is actually set for October 21, Family Radio's Harold Camping said on Monday. Camping insists he's always had the right date for the world's end, but was mistaken about the build-up to the final moment. From CNN:
"We've always said October 21 was the day," Camping said during his show. "The only thing we didn't understand was the spirituality of May 21. We're seeing this as a spiritual thing happening rather than a physical thing happening. The timing, the structure, the proofs, none of that has changed at all.""Preacher now says end of the world will happen in 5 months"
However, Camping said his group would not be mounting another advertising push. In the months leading up to May 21, Family Radio billboards popped up across the country, warning that the end was near.
"We're not going to be passing out tracts," Camping said. "We're not going to put up any more billboards. We're not going to be advertising in any way. The world has been warned. We did our little share and the media picked it up. But now the world has been told, it's under judgment."
