So I gather Saturday was the Rapture. I must confess I slept through it though I heard some interesting stories afterwards.

My favorite was about the people offering Post-Rapture pet care. $135 up front, no refunds. If you happen to get taken by the Rapture he agrees to take care of your pet until the world blows up. If you don't get taken, you don't get your money back.


So how did you spend the end of the world?

You sound like a witty, sarcastic fellow. I'd hate for one of your threads to go to waste.

However, I think this is a duplicate and therefore must report it. If not, more power to ya.

I think its all utter shit, and people are just looking for something to panic about because their lives are so boring. Just shut up and get on with your lives, worry about it when it actually happens!

Who came up with that stuff? It all sounds utterly ridiculous to me. Then again, I enjoy my Saturday. Don't know about others though.

They call it Rapture, but there is no joy in the idea.

How much more insanity do we need?

It's the idea that with the whole end of the world impending there were all these people who wanted to make certain their pets were ok after they got taken to heaven (the guy had something like a150 people take him up on his service)

Haha I heard some people sold their houses and donated the money to the church. My friend's uncle put all his money in the bank..like that'd save him from death.

I never once believed in it.

The rapture was supposedly saturday. If I'm honest I don't even know what that is and nor do I care.
But the guy who predicted it said the actual end of the world would be 5 months afterwards in october. No doubt it won't be.

but are they certain it didn't happen on Saturday? Did anyone do a global headcount?

All these doomsayers are basing their disappointment on the belief that they are the ones who deserve to be taken up to heaven.


What if this guy and his faithful simply didn't make the cut? What if God grabbed his 200 million out of peasant villages in Africa or random guys wandering around the Australian outback. All those little out of the way places where people just live good simple lives without caring one whit about the affairs of the world outside their own little community.

I might still have happened, God just didn't pick the people they thought he would

damn right I'm sarcastic. I'm laughing my head off at this fellow and the people who believed him.

The sheer arrogance of saying "I know when the world is going to end. There is no way it's not going to happen" as well as their conviction that THEY are the ones who will be saved

they deserve to be laughed at.


I didn't see a duplicate thread on this but I didn't look to hard. If there is one feel free to snuff this one or merge it with the other one or whatever.

Yeah -- didn't have much to say about the general topic. People always claim the world is gonna end this day or that. And this was primarily if not completely based off of some religion BS. It just goes to show how much some people are still hooked on mess they can't see, but that's a topic for another day.


On the duplicate - I guess not! I saw one like this but no one's done anything yet. Honestly, I hope it stays. Just tryna be helpful when I notice something so thank you for not biting my head off.

ah don't sweat it. Something like this pretty much exists just for laughs, no sense being snappish towards anyone over it.


For the record should the Rapture ever actually happen, I can say with all confidence that I will be stuck down here on earth trying to keep crazy panicy people from killing each other. I'm too much of a jerk for God to save me from doom. But I am fairly certain that anyone claiming to be one of the chosen is going to be sitting down here with me wondering why God's heavenly taxi is running late.


The people who get picked up are going to be the old lady down the block who makes brownies every weekend just because she likes to see children smile, and the hermit living in the mountains of Tibet who strains his drinking water to avoid swallowing an insect because he has made a vow to harm no living thing.
