A bird flew over my head - OMG The Rapture is Coming!
A Christian friend on facebook posted this article:

https://www.examiner.com/article/effort-...power-grab

And by reading the comments it appears that there is a freak out over this. And my Christian friend and other commentators saying this is evidence of the rapture.

It took me ten minutes of searching to find out that there is more to the story than meets the eye.

Which made me realize that when someone (talking about the typical Christian) wants to believe in something bad enough they will shape any event to fit their logic (hence the rapture is coming and Obama is taking over type of comments).

I am glad I am now skeptical by default. Especially about shit posted on Facebook. 99.9% of 'omg shit is hitting the fan' type of posts turn out to be fear mongering bullshit.

This is what christians are like to my mind.

My Christian friends all thought the rapture would be in 2012. Now, they're saying that "God gave us a second chance" and "it'll probably be really soon". And their understanding of the rapture is Jesus flying down to earth on a cloud, playing a trumpet, taking everyone's clothes off, and lifting only the good Christians up to heaven!

I think in the end, I just feel like I'm a secular person who has a skeptical eye toward any extraordinary claim, carefully examining any extraordinary evidence before jumping to conclusions. ~ Eric ~ My friend ... who figured it out.

It's all a part of God's plan, of course. Wink Virgins are his favorite, after all.
