End Of Days: Man Spends Life Savings To Warn Us Of The Upcoming Apocalypse

- By Bossip Staff

According to this guy we only have about a week left to enjoy our time here on Earth…

The end is nigh, insists Robert Fitzpatrick.

And he’s put his money where his mouth is. If the world doesn’t end on May 21, one week from tomorrow, he’ll have wasted more than $140,000 on bus and subway advertising.

The 60-year-old Staten Island resident, a retired MTA employee, says he’s spent at least that sum — his life savings — on 1,000 subway-car placards, and even more ads on bus kiosks and subway cars. They say: “Global Earthquake: The Greatest Ever! Judgment Day May 21, 2011.”

In a self-published book, “The Doomsday Code,” Fitzpatrick says the Bible offers “proof that cannot be dismissed.”

…Fitzpatrick’s book is based on the teachings of Harold Camping, an 89-year-old radio host with a poor track record of end-of-the-world prophecies.

Camping also predicted the world would end on Sept. 6, 1994.

When the sun rose per normal the next day, Camping went back to his Bible and tried to figure out why he was wrong.

Camping’s group, familyradio.com, is buying billboards nationwide spreading his prophecy.

Many say the whole thing is a colossal scam.

But Fitzpatrick, an engineer who held down a desk job at the MTA for 26 years, says he doesn’t want to consider the idea that Camping might be wrong.

“I don’t want to talk about it. I don’t want to think about it,” he said.

“Everybody asks me that.”

We here what you’re selling, but we’re not buying. Even our black card doesn’t have enough room to cop THIS story. Furthermore, if the world was ending we definitely would NOT be spending our last dollars on billboards and ads…make it rain trick!

Do you believe that doomsday is upon us?? If so, where in the Bible does it say the May 21st 2011 is the day???
