Question for messianic believers: And then what?

“An inch away, total darkness.”

Zen saying



"If you believe in judgment day, then I have to seriously question your judgment."

Religious radio and TV are great sources of amusement for me.  I love to watch the strutting, sweating televangelists spouting their childish BS…

Author Suspected of Being Raptured, Chaos Narrowly Avoided

I was apparently, at least to the casual observer, Raptured over the weekend. The casual observer in this case was my Significant Other. Having gotten up briskly instead of lying around in a sprawled stupor like she was, I decided to go hiking in the local mountains after completing my computing chores. This meant I needed to change shorts, and I left the first pair on in her pink leather office chair, draping them over the seat in a manner that suggested, to a certain…

Psychopaths

To believe in, pray for and want the rapture to come (as

most Christians do) is to believe in, pray for and want the torture and death of

your fellow humans. There are many non-christians in the world and any half way

sensible person will know that they won't ALL be converted, EVER. So knowing

this and still wanting the rapture to come is SICK! What makes Christians

different from any other psychopath?

(Just thought I'd share this…

Other churches swoop in to recruit the crestfallen rapture rejects

As the end of the day approached, and the folks who had emptied their bank accounts and abandoned their lives in preparation for a glorious ascent into heaven began to realize that the train wasn't coming, other churches began to show up at American Family Radio. That's got to be depressing when other churches start rubbing it in.…

Another Secular Student Alliance production, sort of...

I just learned, via facebook, that the SkeptICTs of Wichita State University are going to have a free event this May 21, 2011. It is being put on by the Air Capital Skeptics. I guess this is the day for "Rapture" as it is being held as a "Rapture Day" event. Apparently another religious adherent has taken it upon himself to figure out the day that Jesus is going to return to Earth. Or at least begin the Rapture.I think it should be May 22, so we wo0uldn't have to deal with their crap…

Ever wonder what will happen to your pets after the Rapture?

Cross-posted from my blog.



My grandmother is a huge fan of the 'Left Behind' books. I find them to be generally distasteful, but interesting in concept. The question of what the rest of us would do if some significant portion of the population was 'gone' (abducted by aliens, turned into zombies, killed by a plague, wiped out in a war,… Continue

"The Rapture Has Already Happened"

I propose, as an idea for a bumper sticker, "The Rapture has already happened."



Elsewhere on this blog I have posted an essay, "The Ethics of Jesus", in which I reported what I had found by collecting everything Jesus is reported to have said about what we should DO. I…
