Some of those followers don't give up so easily.

“Judgment Day has come and passed, but it was a spiritual judgment on the world,” he explains. “There is no more salvation. Salvation is over with. The fact is we have 153 days, and on the 21st of October, the world will end.”

Wonder how many copies of Robert Fitzpatrick’s book will be sold? That’s the guy from Staten Island you may have seen on the news, who gave away his $140k life savings on promoting the rapture that never came. His book, on amazon and other places, says the rapture begins on 5/21/11 (and Oct. will be the ultimate end). Perhaps people may buy them out of curiosity (and maybe some on Ebay and elsewhere will get
Camping’s “1994?” etc.)

As you may have seen there was a wild scene at FR headquarters in Oakland—mostly hippies, atheists, etc but some religious folks, doing everything from launching balloons with mannikins attached to them to dispensing kool-aid a la Jim Jones to preaching that Camping and his followers were wrong but need to have their souls saved, etc. One guy had a shirt similar to the green and yellow “(Oakland) Athletics” logo only it said “Atheists”. Videos on youtube etc. (Someone else was playing Camping’s radio shows to mock it all, putting a megaphone up to a tape deck.)

And the "memos" from the "Raptured" to those "Left Behind" are all ready to go:)
