Mistakes were made

New York City meets Munich


May 21st, 2011 · 1 Comment · Religion, Stupidity

From a Reuters article about Family Radio Network’s Harold Camping’s prediction for Judgment Day taking place today at 6 p.m

In New York, retired transportation agency worker Robert Fitzpatrick was inspired by Camping’s message to spend over $140,000 of his savings on subway posters and outdoor advertisements warning of the May 21 Judgment Day.

As he stood in Times Square in New York surrounded by onlookers, Fitzpatrick, 60, carried a Bible and handed out leaflets as he waited for Judgment Day to begin.

By his own reading of Bible, which was slightly different than Camping’s, Fitzgerald expected the great worldwide event to begin at 6 p.m. Eastern Time.

When the hour came and went, he said: “I do not understand why …,” as his speech broke off and he looked at his watch.

“I do not understand why nothing has happened.”

That sensation of not understanding why, that’s what stupidity feels like.

“An actual sign from God.”
