***Update: No New Zealand Earthquake: Camping Proven False***

Harold Camping's message of May 21 'End of the World' has caused a stir around the world. Out of curiosity, paranoia, or mockery, many people are paying attention.

Camping believes the end of the world will commence with an earthquake in the far east country of New Zealand at 6 p.m. local time. Then, the earthquake will roll across the world and hit at 6 p.m. local time in each country.

In other time zones, New Zealand's 6:00 p.m., Saturday -- the beginning of the end in Camping's prediction -- translates to:

Canberra, Australia: 4:00 p.m.

Tokyo, Japan: 3:00 p.m.

Beijing, China: 2:00 p.m.

New Delhi, India: 11:30 a.m.

Tehran, Iran: 10:30 a.m.

Ankara, Turkey: 9:00 a.m.

London, UK: 7:00 a.m.

Brasilia, Brazil: 3:00 a.m.

New York, US: 2:00 a.m.

Los Angeles, US: 11:00 p.m. (Friday)
