Harold Camping's Doomsday prediction hasn't failed, according to one of his followers.
Originally, Camping said the apocalyptical earthquakes would start at 6 p.m. local time in New Zealand. That ship has sailed, however, hours ago.

Now, one of his followers told Reuters that it's still going to happen - at 6 p.m. ET. That's about 30 minutes away at the time of this article's publication.
To be fair, Camping was only guaranteeing and sure without any shadow of doubt about the date (May 21st, 2011). Regarding the hour, he wasn't as emphatic.
His 'calculation' for the date was widely publicized.
For 2011, he first took the year of Israel's exile from Egypt to be 1,447 BC, which many scholars agree with.
Then, using genealogy records, he backed out the date of Noah's flood to be 4,990 BC. He then interpreted several Bible verses to show that the end of the world will be 7,000 years after Noah's flood. 4,990 BC + 7,001 = 2011 AD.
The Bible said Noah's flood happened on the 17th day of the 2nd month of the Hebrew calendar, which translates to May 21st on the Gregorian calendar.
No one knows where Camping is currently. Both his house in Alameda, CA (according to Reuters) and compound in Oakland, CA (according to IBTimes reporters) are abandoned around the premise and not responding to inquiries.
For all we know, they could still be waiting for 'Doomsday'.
