Default It Now Appears The Rapture Will Be In 2018

Undaunted by their perfect record of prediction failures for a 2017 Rapture the Rapture Community is now predicting the big event for 2018. Maybe January of this year. Something do with full moons and Israel. Who the hell knows? Even though these people are completely nuts, I do admire their determination and their ability to shrug off looking like complete idiots. Who knows? Maybe one of these days they will be right.

It pains me to note that the 18th Century preacher, Morgan Edwards, heavily instrumental in popularising the ridiculous "rapture" doctrine in America, was a fellow Welshman.

Fancy way of saying "never" as 2019 is not a Leap Year. Clever!
