According to Reuters News Service, Family Radio has been airing "recorded church music, devotionals and life advice unrelated to the apocalypse" throughout the day. Their site usually allows live stream, but it seems they've been having a problem broadcasting today, and Reuters is speculating it's likely due to server overload. I couldn't get into it a few minutes ago when I tried.
Maybe all the engineers and technicians of Family Radio are outside awaiting their heavenly reward. Or...maybe they're all in hiding. Maybe they've left town to avoid the rush to their door of angry, disappointed supporters who are having second thoughts. Or malicious thoughts about how to get all the money back they were duped into ponying up to help spread word of the great religious event Mr.Camping promised.
Personally, I believe the great religious event of the day is the revelation is that the Bibles was absolutely correct in it's assessment and warning of false prophets and that mankind is prone to repeated folly.
I really, really want to hear the official excuse given by Family Radio. It has the potential to be the best entertainment of the year.
