You people know how much I love the "oddities" of life. UFOs, Bigfoot, ghosts, psychics, Armageddon - I'm sickly fascinated. However, yesterday I was made aware of something that just floored me. The Rapture 2011.
here. Then, be sure to go to Youtube and do a search for Harold Camping - he's the one predicting the exact date of The Rapture. He's also asking us to send him all of our money. I'm not sure what he needs it for since he'll probably be first in line to be "taken up" on Saturday but I went ahead and sent him all we have. I'm sure he'll return it on Sunday if it turns out he was wrong. He also says that those left here on earth after Saturday will be enjoying 3 months of torture until August 21 when the world will actually be blown into oblivion.
Yes, The Rapture is happening this Saturday. Thursday and Friday I'm getting ready and hosting the Peace Officers' Memorial Ceremony in Meridian so I really only have today to get this post done. Why didn't I find out about this earlier?
For those left behind there has been a "post rapture looting" event set up on Facebook - "When everyone is gone and God's not looking, we need to pick up some sweet stereo equipment and maybe some new furniture for the mansion we're going to squat in."
Now, I've never been one to believe in looting - it seems so heathen, but if the chosen ones aren't coming back, then it really isn't looting is it?
Don't get me wrong, I have a God - however I don't think I fit the criteria that Harold Camping has set forth for those to be "taken up" on Saturday.
I guess I'd better get my shopping list ready! What stores will you be hitting and what will you be doing for the last 3 months of your life - assuming you won't be "taken up" on Saturday of course...
