5. Amen! If the dumb rapurists would just leave, we'd all have more room.
Plus, I'll bet 99% of them are repugs

6. Haven't seen any floatin' bodies yet...
and I don't feel any joyfuller either.
S'pose they cancelled it due to lack of interest again?
Or maybe... :tinfoilhat:

THE RAPTURE'S BEEN HACKED BY THE GODLESS PAGANS AND MUSLIMS AND ISLAMOFASCISTS!!!

nuclear threat.

Public Service Announcement The Register regrets to report that the world is about to end. It seems that Iran is going to attack Israel tomorrow, 22 August, with nuclear weapons, and initiate World War III, as famous Islamic scholar Bernard Lewis explains in his recent Wall Street Journal editorial.

(snip)

So, that's it then. We would like to thank our readers for their many emailed comments, flames, and death threats. We've certainly enjoyed our years of keeping you informed and entertained, but all good things must come to an end.

I just hope they get it over with before Noon EDT, as I'm supposed to go to work then. :crazy:

Good points, though. I'd like to know how "The 4400", "The Sopranos", and "Big Love" turn out.

"Rome" is not a problem...we all know how the Roman Empire turned out...kinda like we're doing now.

thinking W would bring on the rapture.

10. Armageddon again???
Wasn't the rapture supposed to be a few weeks ago
when Israel invaded Lebanon? August 4th or something?

How come every time the fundies screw up one of their
"predictions" .. they get to make a new one??
Hasn't anyone realized that these same clowns
have been trying to sell the same bullshit since
the beginning of time... and they haven't been right once.

Maybe someday they'll get lucky... bah

11. I thought it was supposed to have happened already
I was hoping to gain a new car or better.
Does this mean there is a second chance for those who missed it the first time?

25. That was the Rapture episode scheduled for 8/2 or 8/3
this is the Iranian "we're going to nuke Israel and start WWIII" episode.

Stay tuned...

26. Different Shit, Different Day.
It's the Iranian "we're going to nuke Israel and start WWIII" episode, courtesy of neocons, not fundies this time.

Stay tuned.

Wall-to-wall bullshit, and then some more bullshit for desert.

30. I've been moving & off the net
for a while - what's up with the whole "Rapture" thing for tomorrow? I thought it was just a DU joke at first. Is there some "news source" that says the fundies are claiming 8/22 is The Rapture? (Talk about jokes . . . )
