Doomsday was suppose to happen at 6pm local time all around the world, but with the 'judgment day' no where to be found, the question now turns to where Harold Camping is, the proclaimer and perhaps now: false prophet.
Visits to Camping's Family Radio headquarters in Oakland Calif. IBTimes found no signs of anyone. Perhaps he did rapture. Or perhaps he's in hiding.
Family Radio, the Christian stations network headed by Camping which had spread his message of an approaching doomsday, was playing recorded church music, devotionals and life advice unrelated to the apocalypse.
Calls to his offices and associates were not answered.
Camping, who said 6pm would mark the end of the world this Saturday, based his work from the Bible and ran the math to declare the end was absolutely going to happen.
Public opinion was against him from the beginning, however.
The International Business Times conducted a survey of 17,000 readers on Friday to gauge sentiment towards what could be the biggest story in the history of the universe. But despite the hype, respondents overwhelmingly expressed disbelief in Camping's prediction.
Slightly over 3 percent of respondents stood by Camping's prediction that the world would end at 6pm on Saturday. But a resounding 79 percent of 17,000 people polled by IBTimes said that they do not believe the world would end ever.
What of him now?
While IBTimes could not make contact with Camping or his associates, IBT conducted another survey, this time of 20,000 people asking what would be Camping's most likely response now that the earth is still here.
The majority, 54 percent, believe that Camping will unrepentantly claim a calculation error and form a new Doomsday date. As outrageous as they may sound, this wouldn't be unprecedented. Camping famously claimed that the world was going to en in 1994, but, being here 17y later, cited calculation mistakes.
Readers more generally felt that Camping would backtrack on his words and make excuses.
Roughly 19 percent of respondents said that Camping would claim God had mercy on mankind and spared the earth, while almost 16 percent believe he will claim that the rapture did happen, but just in an invisible way.
