[regarding the rapture...]

...what about the MILLIONS of graves that have suddenly burst open? people go disappearing all the time (of course never on such a mass scale, however...) but it's not every day...actually never, EVER have graves exploded showing no evidence of a body.

also...we know that the dead in Christ will most certainly precede us. will we ourselves actually witness this happening immediatly before we take the "last train home"?

[citation needed]

And by suddenly burst open you mean were found open and empty after people stole the bodies to sell for medical research?

And are we also talking kidnappings here?

Grave robbing and kidnapping for Jebus?

Where the fuck does the Bible mention this?

Aren't you people supposed to be judged and delivered to heaven or hell when you die?

And if the "saved" ones get perfect new bodies in heaven, why the bloody hell would any buried bodies suddenly burst forth from the ground? And what about the ones who've been cremated? And let's not forget about the ones who died due to loss of body mass (i.e. shark attacks, innocent people blown to pieces as collateral damage, amputees, etc.)...

Oh! And what about the fact that the bible says only 144,000 men(?) get to go?

Check your pastor's offshore account.

Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling!
Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes...
The dead rising from the grave!
Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria!

... okay, if Jesus blows up a bunch of dead bodies and makes my local cemetery look like a war zone, THEN I'll convert.

Also... that "last train home" line? Remind anybody else of this Simpsons moment...

Bart: Why are we all dressed up? Are we going to Black Angus?
Marge: You might say we're going to the best steakhouse in the whole universe.
Bart: ... so we're NOT going to Black Angus?

This is, of course, total bullshit. But just think of all the prime real estate that would be freed up if it did happen.

What the fornication is this defecation?

10/1/2008 5:02:35 AM


Newspaper clippings, television coverage, radio reports, eyewitness accounts, police reports? Come on, there must be something.

So your god is a graverobber. Nice. From now on, I must pray to Igor.

iflurry, that makes me wonder if the Rapture isn't just an elaborate advertising ploy.

"The end is nigh...the end of high prices!!!"

I just love how they think we will try to explain away the targeted disappearance of hundreds of millions of Christians and children (and dead bodies apparently) with stuff like aliens or lasers.

If the Rapture ever happens, I will be the first to admit that God exists. I am pretty sure it won't though. I give it the same odds as being granted superpowers after a radiation blast.

You are INSANE

What are the odds that if Fox News suddenly went off the air (broken satellite, whatever) there would be mass suicides of these people?

10/1/2008 6:06:37 AM


what about the MILLIONS of graves that have suddenly burst open?

Smoking weed usually wields this effect...

Either that, or your God is a graverobber.

Sethola- who "the fuck cares?"

10/1/2008 6:25:32 AM


the whole RR site is mutual masturbation. After reading a thread my brain feels polluted by so much superstition that I need a dose of reality to clean it out.

It's amazing how much time these people spend speculating on something that they CAN'T know when due and waste their lives.

There is a zombie apocalipse in the bible??????

Surely God can extract all these corpses without disturbing the landscape? Perhaps they've already gone.

I think you should get your spade and have a look.

Zombie Heaven. Does George Romero have anything to do with this?

@ DarkfireTaimatsu

That is exactly what I was thinking. It wouldn't surprise me to see Rapture Ready seriously considering the possibility that the tribulation will start with a giant marshmallow man.

Well, if there is a fundie director out there willing to make a movie about the rapture then here's a perfect title for it: "The Last Train Home"

That name alone is worthy of a blockbuster offering.

Deep Search

The whole zombie slant does kind of make the rapture sound cool--kind of. With graves 'bursting open' it sounds like Dawn of the Dead.

Fundie zombies would all be going crazy for our brains, because they certainly didn't have any when they were alive. Nyuk-nyuk-nyuk.

Where the fuck does the Bible mention this?

One of the later gospels, I forget which, asserts that hundreds of dead saints rose from their graves and lurched on into town at the time of the resurrection. The earlier ones (and all other historical accounts) evidently didn't consider this noteworthy.

sethola's post illustrates one possible way this curious turn of events might have come about - the author briefly went even more insane than usual and just up and decided that it happened.
