The Rapture is Delayed


Well folks, here we are on May 22, 2011, the day AFTER the much ballyhooed END OF TIMES by Harold Camping, the 89 year old evangelical radio preacher.  Nothing has been heard of Harold since his predicted 'end of times" didn't happen  yesterday at 6 pm precisely.  Perhaps Mr. Camping is coming up with yet another reason why God has decided not to destroy humankind as we know it and suck up into Heaven the Faithful while letting the rest of us who question religious teachings by charlatans like Mr. Camping to fend for ourselves on earth shaken by earthquakes, floods and volcanic fire and brimstone so confidently predicted by Mr. Camping and his brain dead evangelical followers.  Or perhaps Mr. Camping is holding a video conference with God as I type this blog entry.  Wherever Mr. Camping is holding up now, one would hope that he would provide a logical explanation why we are all still waiting around for the Rapture.  Mr. Camping?  Are you out there?

While we all await Mr. Camping's appearance and words let us consider another "End of the World" message from one of my all time favorite singers, Skeeter Davis.  And oh, all of those of you who foolishly believed the latest Christian evangelical fraud and divested yourself of all of your earthly belongs in anticipation of the Rapture, sorry about that.

  1. I have it on the best authority, that the Rapture was postponed because Jesus is waiting to see if Oprah will ask him to be a guest on her final show.... ;)

  2. I've heard that God was just 'testing the faith' of his followers. Cunning devil (if you'll pardon the expression), isn't he?

    The faithful always have an answer don't they?

  6. I have a terrible intuition he has scrammed, and his followers will say he was personally raptured to appease the wrath of the Lord.

  7. Dr. Spo,
    You think perhaps that Harold is a charlatan? A fraudster? Or just another Old Religious Fool who scams the stupid?

  8. I think he has been taking up (pun intended) into his own world which was once a con job and is now a grandiose delusion.

  9. Spo,
    False prophets like Harold Camping do a great disservice to those sincere religious folks. There always seems to be some charlatan or con man like Camping to taking advantage of the ignorant and willing. They will always be with us. One thing I am fairly certain of, if there is a Heaven, con men like Camping certainly won't be there.

  10. Maybe the Rapture actually happened and so few people qualified that the rest of us didn't notice.
