HADDON TOWNSHIP, N.J. (CBS) - On Friday, Judgment Day followers handed out fliers, declaring the end was near.
But the May 21st prediction came and left as many people expected.
“The world wasn’t going to end. If you read the bible, you know that,” said Deborah Addison of Philadelphia.
“It’s not something I gave a lot of thought to for obvious reasons,” said Andre Lowery.
Ebible Fellowship leader Chris McCann who promoted the so called “Dooms Day” could not be reached for comment. When CBS 3 asked him two weeks ago if he would be willing to do a follow-up interview if the world still exist, McCann said that wasn’t possible.

Family Radio Network founder Harold Camping came up with the May 21st date. He’s based out of Oakland, California and so far has had no comment and neither do his local followers a Family Radio station in Haddon Township, New Jersey.
However, 25-year-old Vincent Pisano at home is speaking out.
“I’m confused,” said Pisano who says he researched the bible for himself and agreed that May 21st would be the day Jesus came back to earth.
“I believe judgment has started,” said Pisano. “We might have been slightly off but not far off.”
Pisano would not give a specific date for when the world would end. He says he has more research to do before he makes another prediction.
