5. Maybe the Rapture came and went
and only sucked up like 5 guys. What a rip-off!

17. Several months ago,
I was walking to my car in a parking lot, and I noticed a bumper sticker on a car. It said " The rapture was last Thursday......Sorry". I want one }(

8. Was today supposed to be their Big Day?
Anyone jump off a barn crying "Catch me, Lord Jesus!" before breaking his or her fool neck? Well, not everyone can party like it's 1842, I guess. Our pastor touched on the subject a few weeks ago, and said that it's actually pretty arrogant and self-indulgent to presume that all of history has just been a big lead-in to the Rapture Ready folks. It's kind of exhausting living in that nervous state of imminent expectation; look for this round to fizzle out as the days, months and years go by and they're still stuck here. Maybe they'll read a few more verses of the Bible and accidentally stumble across Matthew 25.

We can only hope.

9. Well they miss this one
Ye shall not know the time or the hour...

Of course the timing of this was off from the git go

Did they mean the last pail of the Shofar? If that is so, was that Israeli Time, or any other time zone? This matters, in Israel there is ONLY ONE day of Rosh Ha-Shana, the new year. Fundies don't know such details, but boy they were not only calendar challenged, but off by a day...

Oh wait, no EMP... and I don't get to take first dibs on the abandoned SUV.

11. It's still Monday on the West Coast
I have to admit I'm not clear on this rapture thing: what's the time reference? Is it supposed to happen when it becomes the 21st at a certain place, like Jerusalem or Oral Roberts University, or does it move across the time zones?

Or maybe it did happen and nobody qualified.

13. Clearly, there are no Christians in America.
The right wing Christian must be a false church.

Or the whole rapture thing is cods wallop.
