Let's see...what did I have planned for this week? I've gotten some of my main chores completed; I mowed the lawn on Saturday, as well as grocery shopped. We watched Toy Story 3 tonight, so I need to mail it back to Netflix on Monday. I'm sure I had something else to do this coming week...
Oh yeah. One thing I need to put on the agenda is to bend over and kiss my ass goodbye. According to the eBible Fellowship, and Christian radio host Harold Camping, the Rapture will be on Saturday, May 21, 2011. All the righteous will be zipped up into heaven, leaving us sinners (i.e., about 99.99% of the surviving population of the world) behind. That gives us just about a week to get our affairs in order, and according to those righteous folks who are bringing us this great news, "get right with Jesus."
You can read about it here, and even listen to some of the eBible Fellowships webcasts on the subject.
Now, I'll tell you, I'm not going to get too excited about this upcoming event, because history is replete with prophets crying in the wilderness, and telling the end is upon us. So far in my lifetime I've been disappointed every single time someone pointed at a date and said, "This is it! The end!"
But, there could be a time when someone is correct, and it will be the end. If you read the pamphlet I've linked above you'll see they have the dates all figured out, right to the exact day. It is problematic to me because of the different time zones around the world. For those across the International Date Line will the Rapture start on the same date for them or will it have to be adjusted for their time zone?
Something that has crossed my mind, since I follow some TV programs on Sunday nights, I'll be mighty pissed off if they're canceled because of the Rapture.
I'm also concerned that the Rapture will disrupt the Mayan timetable for the end of the world in 2012.
If you believe in the Rapture, listen to the 1980's band, the Alarm, then come on down and meet your maker!
