As reported in the Spokane Examiner, Matt Ivers, of Potlatch, one of the individuals who predicted that the world would end at 6 o'clock Saturday, issued this apology to "Dear Friends" on his Facebook page:
I would like to humbly apologize to any of you who I have told that May 21, 2011 is judgment day and that there would be a great earthquake on that day. Obviously, that did not take place on that day as many have predicted. I am very sorry for wrongly teaching that and it is in my best and sincere interest to not mislead, frustrate, or lie to anyone. I hope that you can forgive me and that we can all grow spiritually from this lesson.
Question: Do you think the world will literally end in your lifetime?
