No the American Dad episode was not correct and I only watched it because of it being about the Rapture. It is the belief among Christians the true believers will be taken up in the air either before the Trib, during the trib, or after. I Tend to believe that it will be before Armageddon because the Bible mentions that only 144,000 converted Jews that are spreading the word. I used to think it would be at the beginning, but no one can be for certain.

No one can be certain because there is not going to be a secret or special rapture for the true believers. There is only going to be a second coming and everyone will know. This is a new teaching that a young disturbed girl made up in the mid 1800's. It wasn't until the early part the last century that it started up again. Mainly by denominations that were trying to prove that sola scriptora is correct. These are the kind a false teachings that happen when you take passages out of context. instead of everything together OT and NT plus the history if the time that scripture was written.

I hadn't head of the "rapture" until a couple years ago and personally find it silly but won't criticize anyone believing in it. I have learned that those who believe in it say that "believers" will be "taken" and "non-believers" will be "left" behind as in Matthew 24:36-44. But I read that passage, and Jesus said, "for as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man". This means those who are "taken" are the ones to be punished.
