Oakland false prophet Harold Camping made headlines over the last few weeks with his prediction that Jesus was returning on May 21, 2011 at 6:00 pm in various time zones around the world. He proclaimed that, at the moment, his followers would ascend to heaven while the others (i.e., you) suffered through a massive earthquake and, later in October, the end of the Earth. The former civil engineer used numerology and the Bible as his predictive tools. As the hours passed, however, Camping's forecast never came to fruition.
SFist contributor Laura Beck captured this shot of the minister's Alameda home at 6:01 p.m. today. According to Reuters, the curtains were drawn at Camping's house, and nobody was answering the door.
Family Radio, Camping's multi-million dollar-funded network that helped spread his message, was playing recorded church music and sermons throughout the day. This wasn't his first time predicting the end of the world. Camping had predicted that Judgment Day would be in September 1994, a day that passed with litte fuss or muss.
