OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- A California preacher who foresaw the world's end last year is acknowledging for the first time that his apocalyptic prophecy was wrong.

In a missive posted on his independent ministry's site on Thursday, 90-year-old Harold Camping says he has no evidence the end of the world will come anytime soon. The preacher also says he isn't interested in considering future dates.

Camping's Family Radio International spent millions of dollars in the last few years putting up thousands of billboards plastered with the Judgment Day message.

After global cataclysm didn't occur on May 21 as he had forecast, Camping revised his prophecy, saying he had been off by five months.

He was later hospitalized after suffering a mild stroke.
