Here's a link to an article on the subject:
Basically, an evangelical group posted a billboard warning that The Rapture is coming May 21st. Then an athiest group posted a billboard debunking the evangelical billboard.
What do you think of the prediction of a May 21st Rapture?
What do you think of the atheist's retort?
I think it's all foolish!! Why dont' they all spend their money on helping people in need.... I'm sure some hungry child would rather a meal and a warm blanket vs a billboard to read!!!

I think AA President, David Silverman, sums it up best:
“Every time someone has predicted the rapture they’ve
been wrong, but most of the time the preachers make a lot of money in the
process. In my opinion, it’s an excellent scam – if you can handle the
complete lack of ethics involved. ”

Oh, must I be the one to point out the obvious? Crafty and Loving, THE RAPTURE IS COMING!! Feeding the starving children and giving them life-saving necessities at this point is useless. Posting billboards that everyone who hasn't been saved is what's important now! Don't you get it? THE RAPTURE IS COMING! WE HAVE A DAY, DATE AND TIME!
What I'm wondering now is. . . would it be completely tactless to contact those people who believe that the Rapture is coming to see if they're willing to part with their bank accounts now? I mean, with the Rapture coming and all, they won't have need of cash, but those of us who will be left behind might find a use for it during those six months while we await judgement. See what I mean?

I want to know how much in donations they received with their first report of the rapture and if the economy has effected this second attempt to sell people a way into heaven.

They both made me laugh for different reasons but I'll guess we will know who is right on May 22nd.
My guess is that the atheists will be right.
