Robert Fitzpatrick, the Irish American retiree who blew his life savings to warn people the world would end on May 21 stood in Times Square on Saturday evening and looked utterly bewildered that the world's end had not occurred as scheduled.
Fitzpatrick, a retired MTA employee, allegedly spent $140,000 on his own money on splashy placards that were posted on the city's subway cars and bus shelters encouraging passersby to repent as the end was nigh.
But last Saturday evening, around the time he predicted the end of the world would begin, Fitzpatrick found himself surrounded by mockers and members of the media as he stood in Times Square.
"I see that we're still here. I don't understand it," Fitzpatrick told the Huffington Post. "I don't understand why nothing has happened."
Fitzpatrick along with thousands of other listeners to Harold Camping's radio show firmly believed the preachers prediction that the world would end on May 21.
Although the California based preacher did not release a public statement after the non-event, one of the board members of his Family Radio International organization told the press Camping was "mystified" and "a little bewildered" to discover he was still on earth.
