Apocalypse now - maybe - I'll get back to you

Harold Camping reckons the world will end today. Or whenever's good for you. Picture: AP

( Or maybe not. It could "probably" be the end of the world. And even then, it'll happen "very, very quietly".

Er, sort of. when Camping - a US radio evangelist - told us the world would end on May 21? And then nothing happened?

Well, his revised date is October 21 - which is today. Or tomorrow in the US.

And with judgment day bearing down on us, Camping revised his prediction in a very non-committal portrayal of how things will go down.

"The end is going to come very, very quietly probably within the next month, by October 21st," he said earlier this month.

"Probably there will be no pain suffered by anyone because of their rebellion against God. We can become more and more sure that they'll quietly die and that will be the end of their story."

Taiwan's Next Media Animation team has given us a look at what to expect - in their own unique way.
