The End Is Nigh (Impossible)!

So apparently there’s been this idea around that the Rapture is going to happen this Saturday, May 21. (See here)

There’s no point really going through Harold Camping’s arguments, since they’re all based on numerology and superstition, but needless to say I take a pretty dim view of them.

I predict that on May 22nd (or anytime thereafter), Camping will likely state either A) his mathematics were in error (as he did after a similar 1994 “prediction”), B) We’ll have to wait and see still, or C) the “Rapture” actually happened in some way (i.e. “So and so in Town X, Arkansas went missing that day and therefore was raptured!”). If he chooses “C” he’ll probably add that apparently very, very few people actually found favor with God and so the Rapture was microscopically small.

I will also state, for the record, if such a Rapture does indeed occur, whether it’s through hundreds of millions of people literally vanishing, or perhaps them apparently just dropping dead for no reason (i.e. just their “soul” was taken), I will immediately convert to his version of Christianity. That would be sufficient evidence to believe in God, in my view.

Anyway, I’m not going to lose any sleep over it. I’ll lose sleep over working overnight the next couple of days, but not this.

    Why would you jump to the conclusion that God exists if the rapture happens? It could be an alien race playing a trick on us using more advanced technology. The people who disappeared could have been aliens themselves and left to go back home all at once.

    It could also be a media trick. You would have no way of personally knowing that millions of people had just disappeared, save for the few you knew yourself.
