THE FRONT PAGE

The Rapture. The Apocalypse. Armageddon. Judgment Day. The End of Days. Revelation. The Second Coming. Known by many names, it's one of the most toxic, ancient religious beliefs we're still stuck with today. Please post any and all things exposing this lunacy and let's figure out how to reduce and even eradicate this twisted idea of mass suicide.

The study of End Times is also known as eschatology.

Warning - Remember, don't get despaired. It's their delusional dream of global suicide based on the hallucinations of some bad, accidental science fiction writers.

It may be paranoia (I really hope that it is) but the situation seems a little more tenuous to me. There are a frightening number of people who believe in the end times of Revelations. I feel that any combination of aggression on the temple mount, possession of WMDs by extremists, and large scale attacks between countries could trigger some pretty serious hysteria. Quite frankly if a nuke is allowed to go off in the name of this percieved end time, I consider it a partial loss.

@Dave: This is the number one problem with the dominionists: they are actively working, like Jihadists in the Mideast, to bring out their own imagined Paradise, no matter that most of those who believe in science and reason echo by paraphrase Woody Allen's observation that we aren't afraid of the rupture Rapture, we just don't want to be there when it happens.

@Don. Most excellent advice, my friend. Actually, the setting is simple: a post-apocalyptic city state, one of many on earth, each called an A.N.G.E. (autonomous nucleo-fusive geophysical environment), each letter of the French word for "angel" being a designation of the human activity taking place in that unit -- each unit a towering chrome and glass enclosure of several "city blocks" and skyscrapers in size. (I got the idea from a book, "Fantastic Architecture," except that in the art book, it was a design for the city of W.I.E.N.) But I see where you are coming from. I loved Frank Herbert's Dune chronicles and would give anything if I could write something like that.

I should probably state at some point and above, that under no uncertain terms, I believe the nutcakes will ever be able to self-fulfill their fantasy. My intent here is to highlight their lunacy, mock and ridicule them and discuss how to marginalize them. I've just spent 10 minutes googling end time sites and it boggles the mind how many sites are devoted to this belief.

Aha! I suspected there were a few eschatologists out there. My opinion, there won't be any end times. Dire warnings of it are grossly overstated, ranging from John of Patmos' Revelations (a esopsephian coded Enigma to Christers under Nero's evil scrutiny) to P. D. James' dystopian barren females and warring ecodisastrous refugee warlord clans. Coming soon: my novel, "A.N.G.E.," a world where religion is, shall we say, discouraged; where children are incubated and placed with Isbots to keep them out of the clutches of the Not-Isbots, and where the greatest error (the concept of "sin" having been eradicated by the Council of Nine Elders) is falling in love.

Soldiers (at least the officers, anyway) take an oath to uphold the US Constitution. If they think they have a higher duty that potentially trumps that oath, they have no right to be part of the American military.

Don, I agree eradicate might be an elusive goal but my problem is with the nutcakes who want and are trying to bring about our end, long, long before the Big End. They are plotting to make the bogus prophecies line up just right so they are Ready for the Rapture. In a sense, it's the folks with terminal cancer form of the "The God Virus". It's the lunatics who think Obama is the anti-christ and the tribulation is right around the corner that need to be slapped out of their nightmare.

Welcome everyone! Let's all look forward to the future instead of hoping it all ends.
