STATEN ISLAND, NY (1010 WINS) – Two days and counting… the end of the world is near, according to a Staten Island man.

Robert Fitzpatrick says that around 6 p.m. Saturday, all Hell will be breaking loose.

Fitzpatrick is the author of “The Doomsday Code.” He says come Saturday evening, buildings and bridges will collapse, dams will burst and flames will consume the planet.

“Industrial wastes will be released, radioactive wastes will be released, it’s going to be Hell on Earth,” Fitzpatrick told 1010 WINS’ John Montone.

1010 WINS’ John Montone reports: Staten Island Man Predicts The End Of The World, Says He’s Sane

Fitzpatrick says as God begins destroying the planet, true believers like him will be sucked up into Heaven. Everyone else he says, will die.

“It’s very upsetting but that is what the Bible is telling us,” he said.

Some skeptics may think Fitzpatrick has a few screws loose and though he says he has never met with a mental health expert he says he is “quite sane.”

Naysayers around the country are sponsoring “Rapture parties” to celebrate the world not coming to an end. Online, a Facebook group sarcastically promoting post-Rapture looting has thousands of people signed up.

Yet even as he anticipates the fiery end to all human existence, Fitzpatrick continues to recycle his trash as if life will go on.

Do you think the world will end on Saturday? Sound off below in our comments section.

    Due to the lack of experienced trumpeters, the end of the world has been postponed until further notice.

    For the record, Mr Fitzpatrick is to Christianity what Newt Gingrich is the GOP. Please stop making the rest of us look bad. Jesus clearly states in Matthew 24:36 that “No man knows the day or the hour…” But by in slim chance he’s actually right, I’m asking for an advance on my paycheck for next week. God Bless!

  5. anonymous says:

    why should only the father know? certainly if he loves his creation he should at least give them better signs. i could easily conclude he hates his own son too, if he can’t tell him-the son when he -the son is supposed to go and harvest holy souls to heaven.

  6. dnx says:

    maybe the end of world will end for him. his judgment day will come this Saturday and for us, it will not come. that guy is insane, are old people always insane. I have a grandmother that she thinks that dogs are aliens. what a joke.

  7. Fitzirules says:

    Mr. Robert Fitzpatrick will be first in line up to drink the kool aid. Down the hatch buddy. May God (or whoever) have mercy on your soul.

  8. jerseyjoey says:

      Oh no you di-int!

  11. True Believer says:

    While I do not agree that the world will end on Saturday, I do believe that the Bible is the Word of God and it is not the Word that is flawed but a person’s approach to it that is. A person can accept, reject, question, ridicule, and denounce it. It all depends what is in a person’s mind and heart. If a person desires to know truth, then the truth is what they will see, regardless of how painful that truth may be. But if the person denies truth, and does not desire to face what is in their hearts and minds, then it is much easier for them to denouce the Word as flawed and a fairytale.

  12. Mr.G says:

    Robert Fitzpatrick says that around 6 p.m. Saturday its the end of the world. I say the Mr.Fitzpatrick will die that day and life will go on. I hope it will not happen. But who knows.

    There is no way the world is ending on Sat.I have milk that doesn’t expire until 05/25!

      I was thinking that same thing! Also I haven’t used all my vacation time and I’m still accruing it at the normal rate. And my mother in law is coming in Sunday to visit. Wait. Maybe it IS the end of the world.

  15. Sciencerules says:

    Everything (the complexity of life, etc.) points to a prime mover (or God). However (and if God exists), he would know the past, present and future. If that holds true and God knows the future, why would God create angels that would turn on him (and become devils)? Then (in turn), these evil spirits (if you will) are giving us a devil of a time—and working overtime trying to get us to join him and his buddy devils in “Hades.” Unfortunately, it just doesn’t make sense. Furthermore, God would know in advance (even before we are born) if we are worthy sharing his paradise with us. So, why would he/she (God) even bother going through this ridiculous exercise. Scientist Steve Hawking recently said: “We are here by accident and that heaven is a fairy tale.” Hum…could be.

    1. True Believer says:

      Your Hypothesis are interesting but leave out a few key points. If this was a world where God controlled our actions like puppets on strings, then your Hypothesis might be accurate. But it is not and we are not puppets on strings. We have free will for good or bad. Billions of people, all making billions of decisions, based on billions of life events, billions of permutations that can be changed in an instant, all seen through the limited scope of our humanity. We are terribly limited to the things within our scope perception. We don’t see how one life affects another, and then affects countless others in an ever growing chain of events. I was big Star Trek fan growing up. Are you familiar with the episode of the original series called “City on the Edge of Forever”. If not then I would suggest viewing it and then giving thought to the implications of the story.

      1. Sciencerules says:

        There are numerous despots throughout histroy that God created (and he knew in advance) what dispicable acts that they would perform. If there is a God, why would he have created them in the first place? Why did he create the angels, when God knew many of them would turn on him? Why did they turn on God? That makes no sense. And the angels knew God (all loving, etc.). We never met God. We have to believe in order to meet him/her, the angels didn’t.

  16. Doomsdayrules says:

    Gee, I wish this year was a leap-a-year. That would at least give us another day. Well (anyway), this will give us something to look forward to.

  17. Adam says:

    Those Who Have Heard the Word but Are Scoffers

    Ever since God gave the command to repent and believe the Gospel (Mark 1:15), it was God’s intention that in the world, as many people as possible might come under the hearing of the Gospel. That is why, about 2,000 years ago, Jesus commanded that all the true believers are to send the Gospel into all the world (Matthew 28:19- 20).

    Sadly, the reaction of a great many people who became somewhat acquainted with the Bible was either to scorn and ridicule it, or to follow their own rules rather than the Bible’s rules, as they endeavored to understand Biblical truth. Those who ridiculed the Bible were convinced there were errors and contradictions in the Bible, and therefore, they had no desire or need to obey it. Those who came to the Bible with their own man-made method of interpretation, or who had placed their trust in their church or denomination as the ultimate authority, rather than trusting the Bible, they also became obedient to doctrines that were not true to the Bible.

    The Italian artists and Dante never knew what the effect of
    their creating Hell as a vision for the Pope would do?
    In anyway ,Where are the fifty percent discounts on booze
    at the bars for Doomsday Saturday?
    They could end the discount’s at 6 pm.
    Hey I used to work in P.R.

    The Problem of Satan within the Churches

    One very big reason for the lack of spiritual success in the church age was the problem of Satan. At the time of the cross, Satan was given a death blow. He was banished from heaven (Revelation 12:7-11), and he was bound so that he could not deceive the nations during the complete period of the church age, which was symbolically described as a period of 1,000 years (Revelation 20:1-3). The 1,000 years must be understood as a symbolical or spiritual number that signifies “completeness.” The actual period he was bound was 1,955 years (from A.D. 33 to 1988).

    But the fact that Satan was bound did not preclude him from going about as a roaring lion, seeking whom he might devour (I Peter 5:8). That is, while the church age was altogether God’s plan by which the Gospel was to reach into all the world, it would be greatly hindered in its spiritual effectiveness by Satan. He would hinder the effectiveness of the churches by sowing tares or weeds within them (Matthew 13:24-30). That is, Satan, operating as an “angel of light” would bring his ministers as “ministers of righteousness” into each local congregation (II Corinthians 11:13-15).

Anybody hear about a giant extraterrestrial body heading our way? No? Maybe these guys read the script from the “Smallville” finale?

  22. Alex says:

    I think these guys’ strategy is to just pick random dates and they’ll eventually get it right

    1. Frank D says:

      FUNNY. I fhe ever gets it right there won’t be much chance to gloat.

  23. nietzsche says:

    @ MIKE and the rest of you… Christians should be embarrassed, and criticized. It’s not a matter of “the Bible says… no man shall know the time…” The Bible is a misinterpreted, mistranslated, fallible relic of an ancient time. It is not the Word of God. Fallible human beings voted on what books were even to be included in the current Bible ( until the Council of Trent in 1546, there were multiple versions of the Bible). You think you guys are all reading the correct version huh? Everything in the Bible today is a copy of a copy of a copy of a copy of a copy and because the scribes copying these books, were only human, mistakes did creep in. Some errors were accidents, others were deliberate. The Book of Mark (Mark 2:25-26) has Jesus actually citing the scriptures (1 Samuel 21:1) saying that King David ate the bread from the temple on the sabbath during the time of “Abiathar the High priest” But when one looks at the chapter in 1 Samuel, it mentions that Abimelech was the high priest, not Abiathar. Wow, right there. proof that even the words of Christ hold a fallible mistake, that you can prove by reading YOUR VERY OWN BIBLE. Look it up yourself… I was Christian for 20 years, and theological scholar as well, it amazes me how little you people know about your own religion, and presumed holy book.

    1. Mike, not him says:

      nietzsche as a scholar it amazes me what you know about history, the bible was being put together long before the council you have st irenaeus stating in 160 there are only 4 gospels

    2. Mike, not him says:

      Let us consider what the texts in question say:

      Mark 2:25-26
      But He said to them, “Have you never read what David did when he was in need and hungry, he and those with him: how he went into the house of God in the days of Abiathar the high priest, and ate the showbread, which is not lawful to eat, except for the priests, and also gave some to those who were with him?”

      1 Samuel 21:1-6
      Now David came to Nob, to Ahimelech the priest. And Ahimelech was afraid when he met David, and said to him, “Why are you alone, and no one is with you?” So David said to Ahimelech the priest, “The king has ordered me on some business, and said to me, ‘Do not let anyone know anything about the business on which I send you, or what I have commanded you.’ And I have directed my young men to such and such a place. Now therefore, what have you on hand? Give me five loaves of bread in my hand, or whatever can be found.” And the priest answered David and said, “There is no common bread on hand; but there is holy bread, if the young men have at least kept themselves from women.” Then David answered the priest, and said to him, “Truly, women have been kept from us about three days since I came out. And the vessels of the young men are holy, and the bread is in effect common, even though it was sanctified in the vessel this day.” So the priest gave him holy bread; for there was no bread there but the showbread which had been taken from before the LORD, in order to put hot bread in its place on the day when it was taken away.

      There are various means by which this supposed contradiction fades away. Some English translations omit the phrase “…the high priest…”, as it does not appear in some manuscripts. Perhaps the error is that of a transcriber, who in error, penned Abiathar rather than Abimelech. Or, perhaps Abiathar is mentioned as high priest, as he was contemporary with David and in Jewish thought, no doubt inseparably associated with David, as he was with David throughout the calamities of his life, leading to and through his reign. Abiathar was the son of Abimelech, and was to become High Priest after his father.

      Abimelech and Abiathar are not the only case where both a father and son are referred to as being the High Priest. Around the time of Christ, both Caiaphas (John 18:24) and his father Annas (Acts 4:6). The fact is, they both did serve in that capacity and to name both as “high priest” is in no way a contradiction. There is likewise no reason to consider it to be contradictory in the case of Abiathar and Abimelech.

      There is no contradiction.

      1. nietzsche says:

        The point is not to prove whether or not there is a contradiction or not, the point is that there are discrepancies in the Bible, that are probably the result of the text being transcribed over and over and over again. Which we know as a fact is what happened. The point is that by realizing that that was the case, the likelihood that today’s version is the infallible word of God, is absolutely ludicrous.

        I originally said this – “The Bible is a misinterpreted, mistranslated, fallible relic of an ancient time.” Can you prove otherwise?

  24. Gregory says:

    Another religious wack-a-doodle; just what the world needs now. I make it a habit never to drink and read the Bible; consequently, I don’t read the Bible.

  25. HRS says:

    Now how many times have we seen tabloids with the head lines quoting
    “the end of the world”, or some bogus prediction of a specific date thereof.
    Just remember, none of it really happened so far. Only God knows the
    time and date.

  26. Yes says:

    End of world party at his house. BYOB. Unless he can turn water into wine as well. I’ll bring the herb. All natural. Gods gift to us.

    1. Haywood Jahblome says:

      if heaven sucks, hell must blow then. haw haw

  30. Rita S says:

    This guy is a nut job – just like HAROLD CAMPING….and the crazy people that probably quit their jobs, spent their savings, etc…will be the ones standing on the corners begging for money thereafter. What makes these nuts think that Man will crack the code…get a life and stop trying to scare people. I anxiously await May 21…22 so that I can see what ‘excuse’ we will hear now? Another miscalculation??? PA-LEASE.. do us all a favor and shut up!

    1. Jeanie Schneider says:

      I believe he’s one of Camping’s followers. I’m a Christian myself, a devout one, but I firmly believe in what the Bible says, “You do not know the day or the hour”. So I just keep going about my business – work, church, everything – expecting Christ’s return at any time.

  31. phyllis says:

    the bible says no one knows the day nor the hour that christ will come he will come as a thief in the night but you can rest assured that he wiil come i hope that this message of his coming on saturday would make us aware of that jesus christ who loves us and gave his life for us as smart as we think we are the breath that we breathe belongs to him weather we believe or not there is an eternal life to come its your choice why not try jesus you would not be dissapointed

  32. harry kim says:

    the bible also says you should be put to death for working on the sabbath, lets all get a grip

  33. tnt1528 says:

    damn, i just got my flu shot

    1. a gray says:

      Thank you. I needed a good laugh.

  34. Uncle Vito says:

    Wasn’t there a movie called, “The 70-Year-Old Virgin” ?

    1. badman says:

      Uncle Vito for president!!

      1. Rita S. says:

        I vote for Uncle Vito!!

  35. Bob and Diann R. says:

    The Bible States: No one knows the hour or the time of Jesus Christ’s second coming or the end of times. But accept Christ, Jesus into your heart now, receive Him and ask for forgiveness of your sins this day and hour. We are ready and excited for His coming now, why wait for Saturday! Thank You Jesus for ALL that You do this day and everyday, Amen!

  36. Fernando says:

    He did get one thing right in his statement.

    “Fitzpatrick says as God begins destroying the planet, true believers like him will be sucked up into Heaven. Everyone else he says, will die.”

    He is right “Everyone else will die” NO KIDDING!!

    1. Ace of Spades says:

      Thats why the world is the way it is.It’s not the gods or anything like that. Man will destroy themselves before the gods get to use. It’s talk like that that makes people upset. Religion is pure. But it’s people like fitz whatever and you who make religion seem so cruel. How can a person live a life devoted to saving lives and helping others. A person who puts others before themselves but doesn’t believe in a god not make it to heaven?? At that point think to your self is it even worth believing in a religion that scares people into believing in it just so that their souls can be spared. Sad…..

      1. Fernando says:

        Religion is not Cruel. people are cruel.
        And just to clarify, I am not speaking about religion I am speaking in a biological sense.

        “We will all die one day”. Correct???? Unless you know of a special elixir that might make us live forever?

        The End

  37. harry kim says:

    bring it on! I dare ya!!

  38. Mariam says:

    Not even His Son knew the day? Don’t believe in some crazy. The day was reveal to this man. I don’t think so. Look in Matthew 24:36, Marcus 13:36, Hebrew 1:6-11 and Phillipians 2:3-11.

  39. Borlan says:

    I can only assume you are a child or mentally handicapped in some way. Sorry you are so unhappy with yourself.

  40. Ms. Billie M. Spaight says:

    No way. No more than Y@K destroyed everything. Besides, the world is supposed to end on December 21, 2012 anyway.

    It does appear that we are LIVING through Armageddon though–with all those disasters going on.

  41. DanTe says:

    Now, will this prophet be considerate enough to die on that day? Preferably taking out all his spawns and removing the contaminant in the gene pool at the same time?

  42. Enjoy the day says:

    Only God knows when he will end his creation. Genesis states that God will never break His Covenant with us. Thus the rainbow is a reminder to us. As Jesus says no one knows when the time will come…we need to stay awake and ready.

  43. CSI says:

    And what if it doesn’t happen. Then what????? Would that change his view on religion? Probably not. God could say cyborgs are going to take over and he will probably believe it.

  44. Mike says:

    We already have the media badmouthing Christians. And now it is sad to see Camping make a mockery of the Bible. We are definitely on the threshold of judgment day. But the date cannot be predicted.

  45. Ann says:

    Lord, I’m ready!

    1. The Lord says:

      As am I. Come to papa.

  46. Nick says:

    I think I will stick with what Jesus teaches us not Mr Fitzpatrick and or Harold Camping.
    We may be in the beggining satges of the end – the Bible does talk about false prophets – lets start with one named HARLOD CAMPING

    1. Philip Aing says:

      Nick, I am 100% agreed with you. No one in the earth can predict when Jesus
      will come again. When he comes he comes, this is what Bible says too.

      1. Rita S. says:

        Absolutely correct. We were not meant to know these things. These guys are obviously considered false prophets.

    2. CSI says:

      There has been false prophets since the begging of time. Lets put it this way. As long as human life is present there will always be someone who will think they can do, see, hear or what ever that is to become of the future or the end of the world.

  47. Dalllas Kid says:

    The whole concept of “rapture” is not really in the New Testament. It was a later concoction of mistranslation, misinterpretation, etc. Do you research and you’ll see how it came to be popularized in the 19th C.

  48. Surrymail says:

    Must be a Harold Camping devotee!

  49. Betsy Crenshaw says:

    Glory be, what a handsome fellow!

  50. Brenda A says:

    Did he read the Bible where it says that noone knows when, not even the angels only The father.
