When the End Of The World Does Not Arrive

I just read about a Christian group that seems to believe the end of the world is coming on the 21st of May - I.E next Shabbat. I can only guess that should they prove right, we will probably all blame those who were planning to light a bonfire come Motzei Shabbat.

However, working under the assumption that the world is not about to end in three days time, one can only wonder how come Sunday, they will explain their continuing existence. History has shown time and again that failed predictions of the coming of the Apocalypse are not an impassable obstacle (Think Mormons). I am sure the come Sunday, we will hear a reasonable explanation of why we are still here.
