Found this while crusing that kookie "Rapture Ready" (or should I say RAPTURE READY!?) site:

Introduction

In 1978, a science fiction radio series aired on BBC called “The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy”. Created by Douglas Adams, it went on to become a spin-off TV series, comics, various books, and even a movie. One of the repeated themes in the various incarnations of “The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy” is that a "simple answer" is asked of a computer called “Deep Thought” to “the ultimate question”. After “Deep Thought” has spent 7 ½ million years computing and checking the answer, it spits out the number “42”. Unfortunately, by this time, “the ultimate question” itself has been forgotten.

Fortunately, in real life today, eschatologists, (those who study end-time Bible prophecy), know “the ultimate question”. That question is, “When is Jesus Returning?” And, some of those same eschatologists even know the answer, even if they are at a loss to explain it, which again is the number “42”.


What does Douglas Adams have to say about all this silly non-sense?

"The answer to this is very simple. It was a joke. It had to be a number, an ordinary, smallish number, and I chose that one. Binary representations, base thirteen, Tibetan monks are all complete nonsense. I sat at my desk, stared into the garden and thought '42 will do.' I typed it out. End of story."
