It's another strikeout for Bay Area preacher Harold Camping, whose revised prediction that October 21, 2011 would be the rapture has failed to prove true.

The 90-year-old prophet (or false prophet, as some claim) has been keeping a low profile since suffering a stroke a few months ago. He retired as a host on Family Radio, and hedged his October 21 prediction with words such as "likely" and "maybe," after the no-show humiliation of May 21, 2011.

So how is Camping taking the non-end of the world today? According to MSNBC:

Camping himself had little to say when he answered the door of his home in Alameda, wearing a bathrobe and leaning on a walker. "We're not having a conversation," he told a Reuters reporter, shaking his head with a chuckle. "There's nothing to report here."

Proceed as usual, guys. If you're looking for a new doomsday prediction to subscribe to, though, there's a group prepping for a December 21, 2012 end of days.
