OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Religious broadcaster Harold Camping says he and his Family Radio network are embarrassed that the world didn't end on Oct. 21 as he predicted.

In a message posted on his network's website, the 90-year-old Camping says, "When it comes to trying to recognize the truth of prophecy, we're finding that it is very, very difficult."

Camping also apologizes for saying last May that people who didn't believe his prophecy that Christians would be taken up to heaven in the rapture on May 21 probably were not saved.

Camping says, "We're ready to cry out and weep before God: `Oh Lord, you have the truth, we don't have it."'

Some listeners who believed Camping sold their belongings to help pay for thousands of billboards to spread his doomsday message.
