Either God gave Australia and New Zealand a pass or Christian doomsday seer Harold Camping is just another windy bag of shit.
Camping prophesied that "the end" would arrive today at 6 p.m. according to whatever time zone you live in. Dead folks were supposed to emerge from their graves. The goodies would be swept up to heaven. The baddies to be shamed in ways only the 89-year old nutjob could foresee.
Apparently the dead on the t'other side of the International Date Line didn't get the message and their eternal dirt nap continues undisturbed. The Guardian claims that some people actually believed the old fart, sold their possessions and took to the streets. Bet there were some sweet deals there.
The line of the day:
Kieran Healy had a slightly more comforting message for those disappointed at not joining Jesus: "I guess on Sunday when the #Rapture people feel really upset, we can't console them by saying 'Cheer up, it's not the end of the world.'"
