Life After The Rapture

If you believe some of the articles published in the last week, there were millions of human beings on this planet who earnestly believed not that "the Rapture" is real, but that it was actually happening today! Not dozens, or hundreds, or even thousands... millions! I'm not sure how they'll square their expectations with the disappointment that must've fallen over them as the minutes ticked off the clock and the world kept turning as usual, but I'm sure they'll find a way. That's the saddest part, of course... their "faith" is so strong that nothing can undermine it, not even reality, facts or a complete absence of any evidence to support their beliefs. Might as well try reasoning with a turtle, if you ask me.

At least it provided lots of fodder for humour lately, I guess.
