The Sky Is Falling

As has been widely publicized in a major media balleyhoo, tomorrow, May 21st, 2011 has been proffered by elderly lunatic and self-styled "Biblical scholar" Harold Camping as the arrival date of the Rapture, the apocalyptic end-of-days prophesy described in the Christian Bible. The frail, 89 year old Camping has a long and embarrassing history of such predictions, and has made a healthy chunk of change bilking the gullible with his doomsday tripe.

I am not going to get off on a rant here about how utterly ridiculous all of this is--the Biblical prophesy, the belief therein, or the ravings of fossilized dementiac Harold Camping. Mostly because I am just too lazy, and it has been (and is being) talked and written about ad nauseum everywhere else.

Suffice it to say, the Bible itself is a collection of the fearful, paranoid scribblings of a primitive and highly superstitious Bronze Age people, and it is not to be taken seriously by the modern or rational mind (neither of which Harold Camping possesses). Any "predictions" based on this material should not be taken seriously by intelligent adults--particularly those on offer from "scholars" with Camping's track record. If you do place any credence in this obviously bogus nonsense, you are a gullible, simple-minded idiot. Pure and simple. There is no getting around it. Know that I am laughing at and ridiculing you as such.

That, to quote Forest Gump, is all I have to say about that. I leave you with some 'Rapture Day' funnies I have been collecting over the past days. Enjoy.

And last, but certainly not least, the "Will You Be Raptured?" flowchart:
