Saturday, May 21, 2011

American Christian radio host Harold Camping and his radio station Family Radio predicted the end of the world for day 21 of this month.[1] A retired, Robert Fitzpatrick, said he spent $140,000 on placards on subway cars and bus shelters around the city warning people to repent before their time on earth was up.[2]

At Saturday evening, at about the time that Camping predicted the rapture would begin, Robert Fitzpatrick found himself hounded by detractors and members of the media as he stood in Times Square.[3] "I see that we're still here. I don't understand it" - Fitzpatrick said - "I don't understand why nothing has happened."[4]
