EDISON - Many New Jersey residents say they are not worried about threats calling for the end of the world this weekend.

Doomsday prophet Harold Camping has grabbed national attention by predicting that massive earthquakes will destroy the world this Saturday at 6 p.m.

"Gosh, I was kind of looking forward to tomorrow because I didn't really have anything planned," one resident said.

Camping also made a failed prediction for the world to end on May 21, 1994. He called the error a miscalculation.
