It seemed back in the 1980s that every pastor was preaching on the Rapture. Now...not so much. I see this as a sign that we are even closer!

Apparently, some Pastors got information you're not aware of. Whatever you wanna interpret it.

Obviously it hasn't occurred to you that a lot of them have shut up because they have realized it isn't real?

How does less and less support mean something is more and more likely?

Clearly, you failed logic.

Mister Spak

And when the year 2100 rolls around we will be closer still.

2/27/2008 2:41:05 PM


It hasn't happened in the last two decades, so you are obviously closer (if it is real, or even biblical).

2/27/2008 2:41:29 PM


So when no one preaches it, it will happen. Right? Riiiiiiight.

Everything's a sign...

I'm even sure that this post is a sign to you..

And if every preacher was suddenly preaching more on the rapture, Waiting would also say "I see this as a sign that we are even closer!". (Cue "What a Fool Believes")

Caustic Gnostic

Perhaps some pastors have moved on to another shtick. Perhaps some pastors have become acquainted with reality.

I see a sign that says "this is a sign". And another sign that says, "Help Wanted".

Or perhaps that the level of insanity in the evangelical crowd is declining.

I remember time was when everybody said that in the future we'd be wearing shiny silver suits, driving flying cars and holidaying on the Moon. Now they don't.

Guess the tickets will go on sale any day now.

Doctor Whom

Yet more proof that the Rapture isn't going to happen is proof that the Rapture is going to happen? Uh huh, fine, you just keep telling yourself that.

2/27/2008 3:23:01 PM

Or maybe they realised that, as the Rapture was not coming in the dates they said it would come, they would lose flock if insisting.

2/27/2008 3:28:08 PM


Could it be beacuse they finally realized that the fabled rapture is not in the Bible? Hmmmm.

2/27/2008 3:31:32 PM


We're closer to the Rapture now
And now we're even closer
And now we're even closer
And now we're even closer

We're closer to the Rapture now
And now we're even closer
And now we're closer still.

I stepped in a pile of dog shit on my way to the mail box yesterday and I see that as a sign too. 2008 fucking years and these assholes still think it's "Right around the corner!". Sigh

Evolution at work? The intellectually challenged struggling to breed...

2/27/2008 3:49:54 PM


I can't post anything now , jesus just got back!!!!
ha ha ha lol

2/27/2008 4:06:20 PM

I see it as a sign that maybe they kicked the frauds, the uneducated, and the kooks out of your religion and went back to the Scriptures. I havew always found it amusing that the people who insert a non-existent piece of malarkey, requiring a semantic leap to Alpha Centuri, like "Rapture", claim to interpret the Bible literally and attack more moderate Christians as non-scriptural.

2/27/2008 4:06:48 PM


It's more likely to happen because less people believe in it? Not only are you making the traditional error of equating belief with truth, but you've got it fucking backwards! Now that's a whole new kind of dumb.

2/27/2008 4:09:34 PM

You and I both know that if they were talking about it a lot more you'd take that as a sign that it's getting closer(!!!), too.

So let's not kid ourselves.

2/27/2008 4:14:05 PM


Actually, the Rapture took place on Dec 31st 1999.

Sorry pal, you missed the bus.

2/27/2008 4:22:08 PM

Mr Smith

"It's a sign all right! Of going out of business!"

2/27/2008 4:35:54 PM


Because those pastors realized that the Rapture was a false dogma.

2/27/2008 4:51:52 PM


If all these pastors have given up on this rapture bullshit, shouldn't you?

2/27/2008 5:01:16 PM


Let me guess: We are... 28 years closer to that hypothetic event you're speaking of than in 1980? Is that sign a calendar by any chance?
