    (one is excited that the "feast of trumpets" is next week - which means it is time for the rapture).

      She was really upset when Obama didn't bomb the bejezus out of Syria and start WW3.  But then it was on to the next possible date. There is no level of mistaken prophecy that can shake the granite of her faith.

      I figure that we'll (as a nation) be paying to support her in her old age - via some form of welfare - because I'm sure she hasn't saved anything even though she is pretty well off.

      If the "rapture" occurs - which is rather unlikely - I suspect it will be those of us who used our gifts to help people who will be taken.  Even if the closest we come to being faithful is to wear the sacred pasta strainer.

    •  They don't say anything. They just keep believing. (2+ / 0-)

      I first realized that adults were full of crap as a 9 year-old at my grandma's house, where I found Hal Lindsey's "Late Great Planet Earth."  In it, he talked about how the Rapture was going to happen in 1992, preceded by a nuclear war in around 1988.  

      In 1988 or so, he released his new, updated version of the same book, in which the nuke was was gonna happen, for sure, by 1992 and the Rapture by 1996.  In 1992... you get the idea.  

      People still buy this stupid idiot's books.  People still believe in the Rapture (even though it isn't a Biblical idea), they still believe in all the other nonsense their preachers spew, and they believe that they are going to heaven for not thinking for themselves.  

      I gave up trying to reach these people a long time ago.  The best we can do is live with them and try to keep them away from sharp objects as much as possible.
