Apparently, according to some people, the Rapture will take place sometime tomorrow, the 21st. I always wonder what these people will do with their crappy websites when their prophecies don't come true; I intend to check them out after midnight to find out...
Personally, I've been waiting for the Rapture for years. Perhaps when all of these radical fundamentals are out of here, we can get this planet back into shape and start enjoying life free from imposed feelings of guilt and paranoia. Maybe, even, our local liquor stores can start staying open after 9 pm. It's heady stuff, thinking about all of the things that would change here in the Bible Belt, and just imagine no more Fox news. If that isn't rapture I don't know what is.
It's amazing what people choose to believe, isn't it? Believing that millions of people around the world, both the living and the dead, will be caught up into the sky in plain sight of everyone is saner than believing the soul can enter life more than once?
I've also wondered how "Every eye shall see Him". When that was written the world was believed to be flat. Where, exactly, will Jesus make his approach? If it's over the U.S. (which the Fundies seem to believe), how will the people in China see him? Well, I guess that if Jesus can call up all those people, then he can work that little problem out. He must be very busy right now, making travel arrangements for all those people to come to his House for what will no doubt be the biggest birthday party that ever was.
On another note, I was a born-again for many years. Does this mean that I have to go? What if I don't want to go? How can I experience "rapture" if I'm being abducted against my will? My only regret about this Rapture thing is that, according to this picture, it looks like Betty and Veronica will be leaving us. I guess Archie and Jughead didn't make the grade. Funny, too how they're all white people under 30, and the girls all have big breasts.
No wonder this world is so fucked up. Look at what people believe!
