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???

    Harold Camping has tried to predict the coming of Jesus for the last 40 years. Now I find that extremely odd when the bible says that not even the angels know when he will put in his return. These false profits are leading people to hell.

    • I agree

      “Prophets”, not money (Profits)

    • YoungCosby

      Nope, I mean “profits”, making money off of false doctrines makes them false profits. Word play 😉

      I’ll everyone here on the 22nd.

    • WTF!

      Yeah today is going to be the end of the world for a lot of ppl, just like yesterday was & tomorrow will be & so on. The Planet is billions of years old, and our journey as modern day humans have been millions of years in the making.

  • AmazinAtheist

    Colossal scam, lol that just about sums up religion/god, period…

    • CutieReppinNY

      Why do you click on every religious post since you care nothing about it? Give it up, this is a black site and most people have some sort of religion. Nobody is taking advice from a Godless nobody like yourself. Go sit down somewhere with all your science books and continue to convince yourself the Big Bang Theory is real.

      On another note I agree this is a scam b/c the Bible says not even the Son knows the date and time of the worlds end. He’s just crazy and after next week he’s gonna be crazy and broke for no reason.

    • VJ

      All believers know that the world as we know it will eventually come to an end, which is why we should live our lives like it could be any day. Harold Camping is a false teacher and he is leading these people on a path of destruction. Believe he wont be broke on 5/22 because his station is worth 100 mil…I wonder if he’ll help the people he misled :/

    • What?

      Agreed @ CutieReppinNY. Any opportunity he/she gets to talk about religion, he’s right there. If you don’t believe in God, fine that’s you, but you don’t have to knock religion and those who believe in God every second of the day. We get it already, you don’t believe in God.

  • G.M.

    i saw this last night on CNBC…there is even a man planning to jump off a cliff at 11:11 on 12/21/2012 becuz he says he has been given a mission by god to jump to his death to save everyone else and said he believes at 11:11 on that day, a portal will be created and some other crazy sh1t will happen…the sh1t was hilarious, a lot of ppl are gullible idiots and FEAR is a very powerful emotion…world didn’t end in 94, didn’t end on Y2K, its not gonna end May 21st or Dec 21st…the show also said women wanted to commit suicide and kill their children out of fear the world is comin to an end smh

    • Really???

      11:11 am or pm :/

    • G.M.

      I think he said AM but i dont remember completely…why,u plan on following his lead and jumping too lol XD

    • ~ChynaPeach~

      If commiting suicide is a sin, why would God ask you to do it? What a dink. Just like that guy who said God told him to steal the new Chevy Camaro. Smh.

    • ~ChynaPeach~

      I wasnt refering to you,but to that guy’s logic. If he is so into the Bible he would know its a sin.

  • AmazinAtheist

    I click on these forums because it’s just ridiculous how people believe in such nonsense. What’s wrong with hearing about how your religion is a scam? I’m sure you know it’s all a scam, your just in denial. Trust me when I gave up on the whole scam, it was kind of hard to come to terms with at first. Now I am living a very productive god free life.

    • MR.MAKE.YA.FEELGOOD.(always read the fine print)

      I know that this is kinda off topic, but you MIGHT have a point about organized religion being SORT of a scam. But to say that it’s a scam that there is some sort of superior being who designed and created the cosmos might be a over statement.

    • 2011 wake-UP caLL

      No one believes in GOD until they need him!

      Proverbs 1:7

    • G.M.

      @2011wakeupcall: I thought God didn’t give ppl the spirit of fear and if God is so merciful and loving, why would u have to fear him lol XD

    • SettinDaRekordStr8!

      @CutieReppinNY

      I would suggest you ACTUALLY READ/SUDY ABOUT THIS SUBJECT!

      Most people who don’t believe in the bible, I’ve encountered are EX-CHRISTIANS! Some even MINISTERS/PASTORS! They actually studied their bibles, and found out that there isn’t any proof in what they claim.

      The Universe was created by SCIENCE, THROUGH SCIENTIFIC MEANS!

      If a “God” created the universe, then SCIENCE IS GOOD ENOUGH FOR “GOD” TOO!

    • G.M.

      @MissPrincess: atheist and agnostic dont claim nor believe to have the answers, religious and Christian ppl claim to have the answers and that god exist and you must worship him or you’ll goto he11 and burn forever if you dont.

  • REAL REAL TALK

    YEAH YEAH YEAH AND WHEN IT DOESINT THEN WHAT ??????

    REAL REAL COMMANDMENT TALK

  • AmazinAtheist

    Lol @ convince myself the big bang theory is real! Do you have a better explanation on how we got here, because the last time I checked, the bible has two too many creation stories. Each one of them contradicts each other. So what is your theory?

    • CutieReppinNY

      I believe we were created as the Bible says. It makes no difference in what order. But, you claim to be logical and scientific. So again I ask, do you really believe that an EXPLOSION can create life?

    • MR.MAKE.YA.FEELGOOD.(always read the fine print)

      I’m not saying that you are wrong. (i’m open minded) But please tell me how do you get order from k\os?

    • The Commenter Formerly Known as White Devil

      Life didn’t start with the big bang. The universe started with the big bang. Life on Earth is a relatively new development. One of pieces of evidence that supports the big bang is that the universe is still expanding. Astronomers can calculate the rate that stars are moving apart from each other and trace it back to a single point and time. There is much more evidence than this, but it is too complicated to explain in a post.

      Scientists have also recreated the conditions on Earth when life began. They have reproduced organic molecules starting to form. These are the building blocks of life.

    • SettinDaRekordStr8!

      @CutieReppinNY

      In Genesis, there are TWO DIFFERENT VERSIONS OF CREATION!

      Two different STORIES OF ONE EVENT!

      They CONTRADICT! DEAL WITH IT!
      It doesn’t matter how YOU PERSONALLY FEEL ABOUT IT, OR WHAT YOU PERSONALLY BELIEVE!

      If ONE SOURCE told you TWO OPPOSING STORIES FOR THE SAME EVENT, THEY ARE LYING!!!!!

      The “Big Bang”, has NOTHING TO DO WITH THE CREATION OF LIFE IN THE UNIVERSE!

      It actually helps to: KNOW ABOUT SOMETHING BEFORE DISREGARDING IT!

      You OBVIOUSLY KNOW VERY LITTLE ABOUT WHAT SCIENCE OR YOUR BIBLE SAYS!

      Your best bet: GO READ YOUR A SCIENCE BOOK, THEN YOUR BIBLE, THEN THE SCINCE BOOK AGAIN!

      Until then you aren’t QUALIFIED TO HAVE A DEBATE ABOUT SUBJECTS YOU ARE IGNORANT ABOUT!

  • AmazinAtheist

    You should do research on how your god was created. The book of genesis has two different stories that supposedly tells us where we came from. Which one is right and which one is wrong? And you wonder why people take your god/religion for a joke? Lol learn to think for yourself.

    • CutieReppinNY

      The only difference in those two scenarios is the order in which things were created. The bottom line is that we were created. BTW there are far more people in the world who take my religion seriously than those who don’t and that’s a fact. Who are you to say I don’t think for myself? Who is doing the thinking for me? Also, every atheist I’ve ever run across came to be that way because of what they were told by another person, so maybe you should start thinking for yourself. Just because you don’t believe doesn’t make mine or anyone who believes wrong. BTW tell me your theory of how we got here and please don’t start with the we evolved from apes crap that most of you do, because science doesn’t even agree with that.

    • G.M.

      and once upon a time far more ppl said and believed the earth was flat and took that statement seriously, how stupid and how much of a dumba$$ do they look and feel like now??? lol XD

    • (_Jasmine_)

      @CutieReppinNY,
      “BTW there are far more people in the world who take my religion seriously than those who don’t and that’s a fact. Who are you to say I don’t think for myself?”

      Making that statement not only gave justification to let you know the amount of people who have the same believe system as you does not constitute it as being fact;hence, you’ve basically told on yourself that you don’t think for yourself…

      ” Also, every atheist I’ve ever run across came to be that way because of what they were told by another person, so maybe you should start thinking for yourself.”

      Atheists, for the most part don’t listen to anybody. They look at things abstractly and go out and find the answers to their questions. It’s called research, you should try it sometimes…

      Note: Research takes a lot of time and dedication and it’s not for the weak minded so be prepared in advanced for your findings, because you may not like what your conclusion is….

      “Just because you don’t believe doesn’t make mine or anyone who believes wrong.”

      No, it’s not wrong.Matter fact, I personally think it’s great you don’t believe in what atheist believe because you’re expressing your free will of expression… Unfortunately, you’ve just shown that you’re a number follower…

      What is wrong is Christians who solicit their religion everyday of every waking hour…

      Atheists don’t care if you believe because many of them belief in free will…

  • AmazinAtheist

    And I’m not a nobody, I’m a 28 year old US Army (retired) disabled combat veteran. So I have the right to say whatever I want to say. I don’t care who I offend over some silly belief.

    • It's Ms Princess Boo!!

      you probally dont believe in God because your disabled and bitter, and im not saying that to poke fun at disabled people ,but im pointing out that most people who go through some type of issue in their lives often become bitter and want somebody to blame,Blame the ARMY, OR PERHAPS AMERICA

    • What?

      Most of them are the most angry/bitter people you can find.

    It would be you huh @white devil. lol. Yup you are right the universe is still expanding. Heck I will even add to that, that there galaxies STILL being created. So I agree and understand all of that. But you still didn’t explain how we got order from disorder. In this dimension. Throughout the universe one thing that is constant is MATH. Math is order. In Ghana 2+2=4. At the outer rim of our galaxy 2+2=4. That’s order and uniformity. You can’t just get that from BOOM!

      no He did not, its just the law of nature on this planet… everything living has a beginning and an end

      on another note, some believe that our bodies contain an energy (soul) that never dies but goes to another dimension when it leaves the earthly body
