Left Behind

Does it make me a bad atheist to say that I'm kinda getting tired of all the rapture nonsense?

I mean, its all well and good to ridicule and humiliate Harold Camping because he is a top tier wing nut in every sense of the words.  And, as is often the case, these wing nuts cause real damage to real people and ruin lives.  There are stories of families that have sold everything and given it to Camping to promote his Judgment Day.  There are also stories of families euthanizing their pets so they are not left in the hands of the non-believers.  There are going to be more than a few people who are going to stare up to the sky in disbelief that nothing has happened, and then they are going to realize they have no place sleep, no money, nothing.  I seriously doubt Mr. Camping had a money back guarantee on his prophecy.  However, I'm willing to be that Harold Camping will be raptured, to some remote Caribbean island with the life savings of numerous families and the generous donations of others.

Hopefully, the "good" Christians, as they like to call themselves, will find it in their hearts to help these people get back on their feet.  Unfortunately, they are going to preach to them the same silly nonsense that got them in this mess in the first place.

In the mean time, atheists, skeptics, and Christians, among others, all over the country are throwing "left behind" parties tonight.  It's not like we haven't been telling you all along...
