Nope, nor has Thor, the Great Spaghetti Monster nor the Gitche Manitou. That's the nice thing about faith...you either have it or you don't.

I've been trying to think of a nice way to say exactly this, thanks Paul.

I have to say though, this Rapture stuff is no less fantastic, no less implausible, no less wrong than the notion of 'God'. Although it provides us with an easier opportunity to debunk it, myths are myths - no matter how popular they are.

If your reference is to the mass "suicide" perpetrated by the People's Temple leader Jim Jones, it was not Kool-Aid® brand drink which was used to convey the poison. The cliché is based on mis-information.

Sometimes those Facebook quotes crack me up...

"We can't even predict the weather and now some dumb ass is trying to predict the apocalypse..."

To those who believed in the May 21st hoopla.

So you were wrong ... buck up ... It could be worse. It's not like it's the end of the world or something.

Oh, and check out the photos of the Flash Rapture Mob ...

I feel bad for the people who believe what he says, lost so much.. for nothing really. I mean ok, sure they were kinda boneheads for not listening to their loved ones.. but odds are they were mailable people to start with. No offence to anyone on the site who believed it.

I think that should be "Delayed", not cancelled... if not god, Mr. sun will do the job one day ;)

Oh look, you managed to capture the portal tube up to the cloud ship that transported us all here. Nice going!

Very awesome event and an awesome photo!


Yes it is a good photo. In fact a shot from the same spot in now on the front page of MSNBC.com Who took the shot...did you MrBig?

We must admit the world ended for a lot of people yesterday, each death catastrophically lethal. Each a rapture of some kind. Thus this man must be somewhat right... everyday.
