Is Judgment Day a Week Away? Hm…

With everybody so stirred up about December 21, 2012, some people just decided they wanted to jump ahead to the “fun.” You’ve probably seen the billboards around: the ones that say that “Judgment Day” is coming on May 21. But who exactly is responsible for this wide-scale hysteria-mongering? The group in charge of the campaign is run by Robert Camping (who has previously wrongly predicted end of the world dates, including one in 1994), whose followers have taken it upon themselves to tell the world about the upcoming date—take, for instance, one Robert Fitzpatrick—who has apparently invested his entire life savings into a subway campaign about the spurious “end of the world” date.

Bossip reports:

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,, is buying billboards nationwide spreading his prophecy.

What do you think—why do people put so much importance on “end of the world” dates—and why do they never seem to manifest?

    The end of the world is not going to happen on this day it states in the bible that no man knowth the hour, however, we dont want to be like the ten virgins either where five of them was foolish and five was wise. I suggest live each day like its your last, wasnt the end of the world suppose to be January 1st 2000 and we are still here 11 years later

    The poor guy has gotten himself obsessed on a negative thing. He should spend his time volunteering somewhere or maybe going to counseling …

    Hello:) Jez, whre do I start? Thank you for you time. All this craziness over nothing. I think maybe people do this kind of thing because they can’t or won’t stay present. It’s easier to look forward and scare people over nothing.. Because here’s the thing. If I’m present and I focus on now I may have to fix a few things. Well… maybe those goom and doomers don’t want that. I’m just saying:)
