In case you hadn’t heard, some crackpot preacher from Oakland has predicted that all good Christians are going to be whisked up to heaven at 6 p.m. local time. With my love of the fast life and my lack of religion I am apparently going to be subjected to increasingly devastating disasters until one of them finally ends my misery some time between now and October… scary!
Anyway, I live in Japan so my 18:00 will strike approximately 12 hours before it hits the United States and the guy in the apartment across from mine is a really good guy and he is Christian. If I see a ray of light beaming him up to heaven – I will totally post it on YouTube so that everyone located in timezones to the west of me will know how long they have to make peace with their maker.
Now, if Camping’s predictions are true, there is a chance that a great earthquake will kill my communications and I won’t be able to post. In that event, you may take my silence as an indication that the rapture has occurred.
