The following is an Associated Press story on the rapture-less Saturday:
OAKLAND, Calif. -- A California church is offering comfort to followers of religious broadcaster Harold Camping, who believed his prediction that the rapture would take place on Saturday.
Members of Calvary Bible Church gathered outside Camping's Family Radio headquarters in Oakland to declare that Jesus really will return to take believers to heaven with him, but no one can say when.
The church members were outnumbered by atheists, activists and pranksters who staged a countdown to the rapture, followed by a dance party when it didn't happen.
There was a similar scene in New York's Times Square, where Robert Fitzpatrick - author of "The Doomsday Code" - had to admit that he and Camping were wrong. Fitzpatrick had spent $140,000 of his retirement savings on ads promoting the May 21 rapture.
