The world failed to end yesterday

ABC news reports that the world did not end yesterday, despite Harold Camping's prediction:

Doomsday prophet Harold Camping’s revised prediction that the world would end on Oct. 21, 2011 turned out, once again, not to come true.
According to the preacher’s prediction, which was revised after his May 21, 2011 prophecy failed to materialize, Christians would ascend to heaven, while sinners would be left behind to suffer five months’ worth of natural disasters before the earth ignited into a fireball.
Camping’s Family Radio did not respond to’s earlier requests for comment, and seems to be keeping mum on yet another “doomsday” that has come and gone.
“I’m sorry to disappoint you, but we at Family Radio have been directed to not talk to the media or the press,” Camping’s daughter Susan Espinoza wrote to the Associated Press on Friday.
 I dunno. Maybe end of the world predictions are metaphors, or disguised descriptions of a wish.
