He announced it on his show on August 9.

I see you have the duck taped. Now what?
Actually, the prophesy says "rupture." As in hernia. Jesus won't be able to put in an appearance, as he's being fitted for a truss.

Ahmedinijhad has promised an early response to the UN's demands that Iran discontinue their nuclear program.

And, some people think he's the anti-Christ.

But that aside, there WILL be someone who is not our friend that is going to get fed up with the US and Israel's bullshit and do something about it.

10. I sure hope so - could use some peace and quiet around here
all those sanctimonious bastards floating in the air, plus all those gazillion other "heads" floating in the air might actually help some precipitation form and maybe rain. At least getting rid of all the hot air and methane they've been expelling will be good for the environmnet.

And doesn't it seem odd that they would never consider how duped they've been thinking they're actually going to heaven after all the misery and evil they've spread, all the post rapture evil they condoned?

I personally believe that WAS the test - and they've all failed.

31. oh ja, I know that
but they believe they're going to "heaven" nonetheless.

And anyone who believes that whatever the bible tells you to do is moral and acceptable, regardless of the innate "morality" of the action is probably failing a test too.

Stoning people to death for being "witches" or having sex on their period or eating shrimp, that's a little weird.

Killing every man woman and child in a country because the land is promised or some deity is having a bad hair day - that's a failed moral test.

But to some people challenging authority is the only moral failure there can be. To them, it's not whether their deus irae is good, or bad or anything other than "powerful". It's about power and preference and being "chosen" and surviving petty tests of faith every time something apparently unfair happens to you.

There are clearly "good" people who really do use the parables of the bible to stimulate discussion and form a "moral plan" for themselves, who dismiss stoning and violence and arbitrary deific capriciousness. For me, I can't even get past the "sacrificed his only son" line, which is so bogglingly pagan and an oft=repeated line which nobody questions. Moreover, even that some deity would in one breath say we have "free will", yet Judas Iscariot was foreordained to be a traitor, to say we need honor someone who "died for our sins", when the sin I'm most guilty of is driving above the speed limit - certainly nothing worthy of torture and crucifixion.

I just wonder if the main thing that many biblically "moral" people miss is that they ARE being tested, right then and there, and the test isn't how well one clings to some notion of divinity but of how well one understands "morality" in the context of humanity on their own.

The rapturists are frightening. I don't think that the destruction of the world, and the "end times", nor the Revelations view in it's particulars represent the kind of god or deity I would have any respect for and call myself "moral" in the same breath.

24. You mean this Rapture?
O8)

"Rapture"

Toe to toe
Dancing very slow
Barely breathing
Almost comatose
Wall to wall
People hypnotised
And they're stepping lightly
Hang each night in Rapture

Back to back
Sacrailiac
Spineless movement
And a wild attack

Face to face
Sadly solitude
And it's finger popping
Twenty-four hour shopping in Rapture

Fab Five Freddie told me everybody's high
DJ's spinnin' are savin' my mind
Flash is fast, Flash is cool
Francois sez fas, Flashe' no do
And you don't stop, sure shot
Go out to the parking lot
And you get in your car and you drive real far
And you drive all night and then you see a light
And it comes right down and lands on the ground
And out comes a man from Mars
And you try to run but he's got a gun
And he shoots you dead and he eats your head
And then you're in the man from Mars
You go out at night, eatin' cars
You eat Cadillacs, Lincolns too
Mercurys and Subarus
And you don't stop, you keep on eatin' cars
Then, when there's no more cars
You go out at night and eat up bars where the people meet
Face to face, dance cheek to cheek
One to one, man to man
Dance toe to toe
Don't move too slow, 'cause the man from Mars
Is through with cars, he's eatin' bars
Yeah, wall to wall, door to door, hall to hall
He's gonna eat 'em all
Rapture, be pure
Take a tour, through the sewer
Don't strain your brain, paint a train
You'll be singin' in the rain
I said don't stop, do punk rock

Well now you see what you wanna be
Just have your party on TV
'Cause the man from Mars won't eat up bars when the TV's on
And now he's gone back up to space
Where he won't have a hassle with the human race
And you hip-hop, and you don't stop
Just blast off, sure shot
'Cause the man from Mars stopped eatin' cars and eatin' bars
And now he only eats guitars, get up!

36. Nah, the Rapture was on the 2nd or 3rd, and we all missed it.
Even the RaptureReady nutcases. :)

Tomorrow, Iran's supposed to nuke the world. Game over.

I hope they do it early; I have to work at noon tomorrow. :crazy:
