It's as I thought (though there's still two hours-plus left in the Central time zone), as represented by this Monty Python sketch (audio only, from The Matching Tie and Handkerchief album):
It's so ludicrous how people can seriously believe the stuff. If anything remotely like the rapture were to happen, aliens would probably be harvesting humans to take to another planet probably to enslave them like what happened to the Fremen in the movie Dune. Wouldn't that be a kick in the rubber parts?
Remember the old Charlie Brown cartoons where Lucy would hold the football, and Charlie Brown would say he wasn't going to fall for it this time? So Lucy would convince Charlie Brown that THIS TIME is different, he would fall for it again, and the same thing would happen again.
God is just a sadistic little girl, perpetually promising her christian following that THIS TIME will be different. They fall for it again.
God is laughing until she spits milk through her nose.
