Doomsday On The Way, Staten Island Resident Says

Robert Fitzpatrick: May 21 To Be 'Hell On Earth' Based On 'Solid Mathematical Proof'

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – New Yorkers only have a week left to live, according to advertisements plastered all over the city’s bus kiosks and subway cars.

“The Bible reveals Judgment Day will begin on May 21,” said Robert Fitzpatrick, the man behind the ads.

Fitzpatrick insists he has cracked the “Doomsday Code” hidden in the Bible.

“This isn’t just some vague scripture that could be interpreted one way or another,” he said. “This is solid, mathematical proof.”

Fitzpatrick, a retired MTA engineer and author of “The Doomsday Code,” said the Earth will be destroyed by a global earthquake on his version of Doomsday. Only God knows who will be saved and that the church alone can’t save you, he added.

“People who are saved will be caught up in heaven to be with the lord,” the Staten Island resident said. “We should be crying for mercy, not trying to live it up.”

The only thing he recommends is to pray for forgiveness.

“The destruction is definitely coming,” Fitzpatrick said. “If we ask him [god] for mercy, maybe he’ll be merciful to us.”

Fitzpatrick spent his life savings on advertisements, including print ads and posters — about $140,000 — so he could spread the word.

“There won’t be any need for any money. There won’t be any electricity. There won’t be any water. It will be terrible. It will be hell on earth.”

    Uh oh…seeing Three Doors Down in Atlantic City on May 21. Maybe they’ll be Six Doors Down after the earthquake

    1. Pray for others, not self; Pray within your talents; You will get instant Holy Ghost confirmation- then within 3 hours 4 hours you will hear the voice of God through the gentle Holy Ghost who has conveyed your message to and from God to you personally. 2. When you get this confirmation of a living God who hears your sincere and respectful prayer you immerse yourself in service and God the Father will visit you in spirit and voice with amazing power- in His own due time. Which event indicates your salvation; 1 or 2; Better get started or start digging.

      Hi, The day of Obama’s victory news issue the Lottery draw was 666 on Page 2, back-to-back with his victory headline news.

      Spread this news massively everywhere to reach all in the world through all media, means and methods.

        Oh yeah and watch out for black cats crossing your path, YOU WILL BE DOOOOOOOMED!!!! Hurry, take out a billboard ad.

        See “Obama – 7 Strange Coincidences – What are the chances?”
        I spent two weeks diligently researching this particular video and I can assure you it is 100% factual, but don’t take my word for it — I insist you do your own homework. One other interesting coincidence I encountered in my research: The 12/21/2012 date is EXACTLY 45 days after the 11/06/2012 presidential election. 45, hmmmm. 4+5=9=Biblical number for “Judgement.” An eighth coincidence? How many does it take???
        I don’t buy the 5/21/2011 date, however, but I wouldn’t care to bet too much against the 12/21/2012 date. That’s the date upon which the ancient Mayan calendar (the most accurate calendar ever devised) ends. Then again, perhaps some Mayan stonesmith’s chisel broke, or he just dropped dead at that point. Numerous other prophecies, from other scholars, from totally unrelated times and locations also point to this timeframe — including “The Lost Book of Nostradamus” which implies a major galactic alignment that may cause a massive solar eruption resulting in the “Book of Life” becoming blank. This timeframe also generally coincides with Hopi prophecy of the Blue Star Kachina.
        Just tossing this out for your amusement. Don’t shoot the messenger. If you’re interested or intrigued — like I said — do your own homework. I’ve given you a few starting points, nothing more.

  15. Disciple says:

    When the disciples asked Jesus when he was returning Jesus stated that no one knows the day nor the hour but only GOD. There are definintely things happening here on earth that have been predicted in the Book of Revelations and I do believe there will be a second coming of Christ, but the irony of it all is that MAN is going to be caught by SURPRISE (as we should be) and have absolutely no time to prepare unless your preparing now. This man only thinks he knows.

    1. Dale Auburn says:

      “When the disciples asked Jesus when he was returning Jesus stated that no one knows the day nor the hour but only GOD.”

      I remember reading that. Only God knows, and nobody else – not even JESUS. Hmmm…

      1. Gerald Waldman says:

        I guess that means Jesus himself didn’t think he was God or part of a Trinity, doesn’t it?

    2. Mike H says:

      Oh there are things that happened on earth that were predicted in the bible???
      Like WHAT?

      Let me make a prediction RIGHT NOW. In the next 15 years there will be 3 very srious earthquakes of massive proportion. HEED MY WORDS, YOU MAY BE AFFECTED! Also, at least 16,000 people will drink orange juice with breakfast on June 19, 2012. BEWARE

        Isa 19:14 The LORD hath mingled a perverse spirit in the midst thereof: and they have caused Egypt to err in every work thereof, as a drunken man staggereth in his vomit.

        Jud 1:7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
        Jud 1:8 Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.

    They keep postponing the end of the world….come on get serious!!! Who in their right mind can believe this guy? The Mayan culture has their calendar ending, I believe between 2011 or 2012. This does not mean the world will end on these dates… just that a NEW ERA WILL BEGIN. Let’s all try to live in peace and be tolerant with each other. Respect other cultures and most of all, take care of our planet. Planet Earth can survive without us, but we cannot survive without it. So who is responsible???

    1. Dale Auburn says:

      The Mayan calendar is like your car’s odometer: It has a long cycle, and at the end of that cycle it simply RESETS TO ZERO. Does your car disappear or stop running or turn into a goat? NO!! It keeps going, but with all zeros.

    I also wonder if this man gets some money from the booze industry
    I can see an increase in drinking liquor from this sham news of the
    end of the world, make mine a fine Cognac!

    This Krazy Kristian man and his followers on “Family Radio” said in our NY time we are all dying on 5/21/11 at 6pm, Cool,I will set my alarm clock.

    Only Jesus Christ’s followers will be saved, all you others…. Adios!
    By the way who birthed God?

    why the MTA allowed these ads is beyond me

  23. Denise says:

    It looks like he’s a brilliant marketing genius! Notice that there is a book featured in the photo called “Doomsday Code” on the billboard… and guess what, people who are religious and/or paranoid will buy his book BEFORE May 21st 2011. See how this news article itself is giving this guy FREE publicity? Sounds like the same Y2K scare tactic used in 1999 when corporations told us to stock up on water, food and emergency supplies!

    Many years have come and gone, and many disasters have happened, the Bible says we shall see many world wide disasters and many wars before the end of day, I do believe the end is NEAR!! but Even GOD himself has said no man knows when will be Judgment Day. I will continue to pray for forgiveness for me my family and everyone dead or alive

    People have been saying things like this for years and they have been wrong.Unless someone sets off all the Nukes at once , mother earth will continue to change within itself with earth quakes,storms and it’s normal changes it does within its self. We as humans will kill each other off just like we have done to animals etc and wars. It is nut cases out there that stir up things to get people scared. If we could only get along with each other and stop picking things out of context from the bible and other readings we would be much better off. There is not a thing anyone can do when the earth decides it is done existing, there will be no place to hide nor anywhere to go but no one has the knowladge of when that will take place.. Live each day as it is your last ,love and care for each other and stop the B.S….

  29. carlrosen says:

    The funny thing is that people who are unaware of current events (58% of the public) will think it’s an ad for a movie. Hey, Nestor! Deed jou hear about dee new Earfquake Moobie? Eet’s coming out on May 21st! Oh jes.

    1. RODELU says:

      Hey Carlosen, you should also mock other cultures you cannot discriminate! Not only the hispanics, maybe our own Americans, they don’t even know how to spell, some not cannot even read fluently. Check the videos on you tube “stupid america”, you will see what I mean.

      1. EB says:

        I don’t think he was making fun of Hispanics, just stupid people.

      Sad to say, but most americans probably couldn’t tell you the location of Pearl Harbor.

      Don’t worry. He’ll still have his pension.

  33. Yanna says:

    Wow, I can’t believe he had spent $140,000 on foolish advertisements. What a waste of money!

  34. Born Again Bloomberg says:

    Deluded religious fanatics should keep their unhelpful, pessimistic and depressing world views, whose only goal is to spread fear, thus for them to obtain control over others, to themselves. This gentleman had a nice retirement nestegg saved up, and to spend it on this, he comes off looking like a very angry idiot. But then again, most religious fanatics are angry idiots. When you come in contact with one, run as fast as your feet can carry you, in the opposite direction.

  36. pugphan says:

    This whole thing makes me wonder about two others: 1) It doesn’t say anywhere in
    the bible that the world will end in fire. Methinks that is an assumption; and 2) the
    Rupture, where in the bible is that exactly, I’ve never seen it. The Gospel does say
    the world will end though, but nobody in it, knows when.

  39. LOL my doomed ass off says:

    This poor man and thousands of others who gave their life savings to various ministries in hope of receiving salvation. Mean while these preachers of dooms day get tax free love offerings. Will they return all of this money on May 22, 2011? Or maybe they’ll say God changed the date because they figured it out.

  40. Redemptor says:

    Thank goodness! Instead of doing heavy-dut6y labor to pay off a pending bill, I’m gonna spend my remaining days praying for forgiveness. In the mean time, those sinful members of the press will, no doubt, bring up this man’s allegedly gold-plated pension, which enabled him to pay for these ads, and his early retirement age. Thank goodness, I won’t meet up with them, in Heaven.

  41. Ellen says:

    Well let me put it this way. The End comes when we die. And lets face it there’s only two truths that we can depend on and that’s taxes and death.

  42. pugphan says:

    Oh wow! This poor deluded soul. Peeps read the bible and seem to have no idea how to process that information. Christ Himself has said that no one knows when that day will come, not even the son, only the Father knows. Since He Himself is God, and is forgiving unto eternity, then one can only assume that the day will come when we have exhausted HIS holy patience, and since HE has given us free will, then even HE doesn’t know when that day will come. But for sure HE does know that it will, come. Though it won’t be anytime soon, and there are no clues anywhere as to when it will come. Not even in the Holy book. That poor dude will is broke, and is going wind up in the

    He spent his last $140,000 on signs before the end of the world? What about booze, strippers and one hell of a good time? What about 10,000 for every family member to go out and get wasted?

  44. K.. says:

    He is correct, the world will end on May 21st but his math is off by a bit… He forgot to carry the 1; it should be May 21st 3011….

    1. Michael H. says:

      Great news, everybody! You’re now reading this in my voice!

  45. Peter Serra says:

    It appears to me there is a disconnect with what he is saying and what the bible states: Simply put, “No man knows the hour.” Additionally, he gives no credit to God for such a revelation, as such, it appears he has lost his focus. The last day is a time of joy for Christians since for those who remain, they will be brought home to the Lord. We do know however, the time is lessening and rapidly approaching the judgment of God upon the earth. In this, all of humanity should take notice. Besides, while it is predicted there will be earthquakes in the last days, the actual medium for destruction will be fire this time, not water as was the case during the time of Noah.

  48. Wolf says:

    The world begins and ends everyday for many people. Most recently, the flooding in the midwest. Life ended as those people knew it. And a new life began. Japan earlier this year, a major earthquake and tsunami. Life ended and began. Will there be some Great revelation or doomsday on may 21st? To some there will be. To everyone? We will have to wait and see….
