    Meant to be happening this Saturday.

    Does the Rapture pay attention to time zones?

    If it does it means I probably die before the rest of you.

    Yes, tell us how good the internet connection is and if it can load FSU quickly. If it's slow, I'll just pass this go-round and wait till 2012. Hopefully, any possible problems can be worked out by then.

    I think I read that not everyone dies on the 21st. It is just the beginning of the end. I think those who are saved will be taken to heaven while the rest of us heathens will be left to endure the end of the world. Party at my place? :watch:

    Silly cultists, everyone knows Skynet launched its attack on April 21st, not May. :p

    Crap, does that mean if I live past the 21st, then I am a heathen that will die a terrible and horrible death in 2012?

    No, it means you're a heathen, and will die a horrible death on Oct 21, 2011.

    I've been looking forward to it since I became a Christian 20 years ago :) I'm ready whenever Jesus is, whether that's the 21st or not ;)

    Yes, it will be terrific. Hubby and I are already planning on blowing the mortgage and car insurance payments and having a big night out tonight.

    I am. But it's not going to happen on the 21st anyway. No man knows the day or the hour.

    I'll bring the tequila and Xanax. :summer:

    Can anyone pick up a couple rotisserie chickens and some dip?

    I hope the Higher Power uses a panel of drag queens for the swimsuit and evening gown portion of the judging.

    ^I just asked my Vicar parents. They were rather hilariously scathing in their responses.

    They have every right to be. This stupidity occurs several time a century. Nothing happens as predicted and all of the believers disperse until the next time some dimbulb concocts a time & place, then reassemble. It's would be rather amusing, if it wasn't so pathetic.

    NJL (..or course, as one believer told me, we can scoff as long as we want, but we must always be right.....they can be wrong as many times as they want but they just have to be right once....:D...Yeah, I guess....:)...)

    Great... that's my birthday. It would so be like my friends to use the apocalypse as an excuse not to bake a cake or buy me any presents.

    Tomorrow's Rapture prediction is courtesy of Harold Camping, who is 89 years old and who previously predicted that it would be September .... 1994. Oops. He says he "miscalculated" that date. Somehow his prediction of the 6:00 p.m. time for this event proceeding around the globe, time zone by time zone, greatly lessens its "credibility" for even the most credulous, making God paying heed to man-made time conventions. Or maybe this is to allow for more orderly "seating" of the saved up in heaven. :rolleyes:

    I'm looking forward to less traffic and shorter lines afterward.

    So you're assuming that a vast number will be "taken up"? That would make for more parking spaces ... now if I only had a car. :lol: Hmm, I guess there will be a lot of abandoned ones left behind. :shuffle:
