The End is Nigh

Don't go making any plans for beyond two weeks from now. Apparently the Rapture is imminent.

The Rapture is of course that event in Christian Armageddon where all the virtuous and pious individuals are physically taken up into heaven leaving all the unbelievers here on Earth to deal with the forces of Satan. Of course the people preaching about the Rapture all say that it will be the true believers who are taken up into Heaven to be with God. And they always include themselves in the group who will be Raptured away.

Actually, this could be a good deal for us. All the die hard fundamentalist Christians go away, leaving the rest of the world a better place.

In fact, it looks like God might be jumping the gun a little on his rapture plans. The head of the Greek Orthodox and Mormon churches died today, and Heath Ledger predeceased them by less than a week.

February 11. Keep the calendar clear. Or not.
