I have been seeing a lot of doomsayers recently, spouting off that we are in end-times, and the Rapture will happen on May 21, 2011.
Wow, really? That's, like in 8 days. And me without a thing to wear...
My initial thought was "I bet they paid for those signs on credit. When it's time to collect, they're hoping to be able to say 'Joke's on you, Mastercard! I've been raptured!'"
My second thought was "The bible guarantees it, eh? So, with that logic... if it's May 22 and nothing happens.. the bible is bunk, right?"
But I think those are a bit pessimistic on my part.
I do believe, however, that we are a very cocky species. Almost every generation seems to be certain that end times are going to happen when they're alive. This goes back to when people feared solar eclipses, thinking they were a sign of doom from heaven.
Here comes a shocker, I'm going to use the bible itself to prove the 'thumpers' wrong...
So, with that said. Stop acting like you know more than Jesus, dammit. (hehe, I love using the bible itself to diffuse the logic of those that think they know it better than you...)
One thing to point out: The only species to have it right, so far, are the dinosaurs...
