Rapture Saturday, sort of like Super Bowl Sunday …

… except that the Super Bowl actually happens.

So how come “The Rapture” is always supposed to be soon, like this year, next year, maybe five years out … and never, you know, 500 years out?

Even if it IS this Saturday, that still means that 1000 years ago it was 1000 years in the future.  And yet I’m gonna guess that believers back then thought it was around the corner just like they do now.

Of course I’ve never studied the history of prophecies of the end of the world, so maybe there’re some out there that DO say we’re cool for another thousand years.  See you then.  (Except that I’ll be dead, of course.  🙂
