Well, if "the most horrible time in human history" will include a lack of toilet paper, I strongly advise against #5.

ROFLMAO. Well called dpareja.

Bibles get picked up on metal detectors?

Why hide them?

And most importantly, why take pains trying to hide a single most widespread book in the history of humanity? Why would anyone go looting the mysteriously disappeared neighbour's home looking for one, when you can, as things stand in today's world, barely stretch your arms without knocking a pile of Bibles over?

...you have got to be kidding?

Please learn how punctuation works before you start spreading any "messages".

How about you just go help out in a food kitchen today instead? Even your god would be happy for you to do that.

And how exactly would the Bible help us after The Rapture, when "Rapture" is not even mentioned in The Bible? Revelations doesn't have a set of directions for "After the Rapture," just end-of-the-world destruction. And the Prophets are actually going on about Isreal in the 8-6th centuries B.C., not 21st century America.

So how would we read the directions in a convoluted library of ancient mythical and prophetic texts again?

For some reason I found "5.not paper bible's(on disc)" incredibly funny.

I'm gonna go send some not paper letter's(emails) and play some not board game's(videogames).

Cassandra, their idea is that they should leave them to help save those who are "left behind". They believe that after the rapture, all the belongings of 'believers' who have 'disappeared' will be destroyed...

So this is the crazy crap you come up with in your spare time? Try LIVING for a change, instead of obsessing about an imaginary event dreamed up by a child.

You know, I whole-heartedly support this "bury Bibles all over town" approach. It gets the fundies away from their computers and out in the open air, it exposes them to other viewpoints ("What the hell are you doing?" "I'm burying a bible." "...Why? Do you want me to call a doctor or something?"), and I'm sure nobody will, say, haul them into court for trespassing and vandalising "lost" people's gardens. :-)

I'm Pagan and own a bible. Many Atheists own bibles. You don't need to worry about "getting the word out" after you leave.

Okay, let's play for a minute. Let's suppose the Rapture happens. There are so few Real Christians (TM) that the rest of us will just shrug and carry on.

Okay, I'll go further. Let's suppose there's this tribulation and all is chaos etc.

Let me assure you that those of us left behind will be looking for things like food, fuel, security. Not f**king bibles.

No, really. If the mob is at the door and the cupboard is empty and my children are crying from hunger and fear - I won't be thinking, "Gosh, I must go digging up 24thchance's garden on the offchance that I might find something which is of no use to me anyway."

12/17/2008 10:27:20 AM


Oh, right, bury your bibles in the ground, where nobody will ever look at them again.

I like that 'or parts thereof'. Presumably the parts that would be buried would be the parts that support the fundies' beliefs, and all the other parts that do not give such support would be torn up and thrown into the garbage – including the loving words of Jesus, of course.

10.what material to use(not detectable w/metal detectors)

I thought this halfwit wanted people to be able to find the bibles – hence the maps. (Or should I say map's? That was one of the few plurals this moron got right, so let's at least show him/her how to be consistent).


12/17/2008 10:30:17 AM


They really seem to have the belief that none of the people who aren't "true believers" have ever even seen a bible.

I've been an atheist since I figured out the deal with Santa at age three. I've been very, very much an atheist since 12-13 something. And I have three bibles.

One is a beautiful antique, printed in the lat 19th century. I treasure that book and I've read most of it. I'm still not a believer.

I read that as "hiding babies(or parts thereof)" at first...

12/17/2008 10:59:52 AM


Hide them where no one knows where they are and they could never be found except by accident. Maybe someone will be digging an outhouse or well or burying poor ol' Ma and stumble across that chapter you ripped out containing the begats.

And yeah after you all get raptured, Obama's henchmen are going to be all over your property with metal detectors looking for the Bibles you hid. God, you people are fucking insane!

Hahaha, they're digging down Bibles now?

Hide your bible inside a hollowed out Playboy.

So leave already.

Oh, for fuck's sake! If anyone does this, some amateur archaelogist, or perhaps someone trying to dig a well or plant a garden, will find this 100 years from now and wonder what was up.
