End of the World? The Real Zombieland? I Can’t Stop Laughing!

So the last several weeks I’ve been hearing about “The Rapture” and how it’s supposed to happen tomorrow at 6:00 pm.  Don’t ask me what time zone, nobody seems to know.  First there is to be a massive earthquake over the entire planet, then the dead will rise from their graves and on October 21st those that are left, (because believers will have been saved), will be incinerated.

At least that’s what a man with the last name camping, who’s supposed to be a pastor, on the family radio network  said.  He’s mathematically figured it out.  So let’s break this apart.  First the massive earthquake; unless there is a massive move on several tectonic plates all at once, this is impossible at the very least HIGHLY unlikely.

According to Camping, this is very clear in the Bible.  (WARNING: THE NEXT LINE MAY OFFEND SOME PEOPLE).   A collection of  stories written and EDITED by men three hundred years after the stories took place translated (many different ways) from scrolls written in language that nobody knows on sheep skin. Yet, I’m going to quote that very same book.  Only God  knows when it will happen.

The Rapture itself does not fall in line with my understanding of Christianity.  That all are welcome in the kingdom of Heaven.   Anyway, I thought it was Armageddon that would end us all?

Do not get me wrong, I believe in God.  I don’t believe in the men at the time that decided what goes in and what stays out.  I also have an issue with a certain sect of a religion that holds back information to its constituents in a vault, under a sovereign city, built for the man decided by men to be the right hand of God.

People are fallible,  mistakes are made.  Anyway, see ya Monday!

  1. It’s supposed to be 6 pm in each time zone…so New Zealand will get it first in 3 hours!

    I really think this whole thing is silly, but it’s fun to play along. Imagine really having to fight zombies!! My dream come true!

  2. On a serious note (i’m going to copy and paste from an email i sent to someone yesterday):

    my whole deal is i don’t believe in the bible, never have even though i was raised to. i mean look how many different gods people believe in and each religion interprets it to suit them. i hate organized religion, it’s full of hypocrites. i think it’s the bible is a good story book though and does have some good lessons in it. the way i see it – i live a good life, i’m a good person so if i’m wrong about all of this in the end, and god (whichever one of the millions) is good as they say then he’ll see i am a good person and spare my life. if not, then oh well i had a good time on earth while it lasted!

  3. Matt 24:3-51. Doesn’t sound like Camping’s version to me. And even though the Bible is “A collection of stories written and EDITED by men three hundred years after the stories took place translated (many different ways) from scrolls written in language that nobody knows on sheep skin” – I’m going to go ahead and take the words of Christ over a fear mongering extremist.

  4. Also, and coming at this from a Christian perspective because I am a Christian and also given this topic you pretty much have to, as it is a Christian idea, IF God wants to destroy the world with an earthquake, he will. So the massive move on several tectonic plates all at once being impossible at the very least HIGHLY unlikely doesn’t matter, if he wants it done its done. For that matter, if he wants to just destroy us all without that, it’s gonna happen. It doesn’t matter the likelyhood by our reasoning.

    That being said, fact is, if it is judgment day tomorrow, there is nothing we can do about it. When it isn’t, Camping and all the others who are making this giant declarative statement will look stupid, which they’re used to and will justify and who cares.

    Either way, I know where I stand, and I don’t think anyone is going to be saved by fear at the last second even if they would be, why would God want that – that being said, it makes me a little sad and a lot disappointed that these extremists are behaving this way. Let’s say they do bring someone to Christ with their fear mongering. Then it’s May 22. Hum. I just don’t like it. No sir I do not.

    In closing I will quote Quentin Tarantino (why not?) – “The less a man makes declarative statements, the less apt he is to look foolish in retrospect.”
