Doctors, pfft, what'd they have to do with it?
Oh I know.... when I saw the videos of people in Houston singing praises to the Lord... I wanted to say.... why... praise the thing that sent devastating rains and destruction to you.... what a loving god he must be....makes no sense... god saved us....really.... well, if he really cared how about he would not have sent the hurricane in the first place....oh wait... that's right he must punish the gays somehow....grrrrrrr

I have to admit that I have become obsessed with watching these YouTube Rapture videos. I simply can't get over how wacked out these people are. They keep repeating how the signs for the Rapture are unprecedented and then they point to the recent eclipse, the hurricanes, North Korea, wildfires etc. as definitive proof that it is imminent. But you can easily pick pretty much any point in history and say the same thing. And apparently the believers are getting signs in their personal life such as seeing a random phone number or making note of the time they wake up in the night and then associating it with a Bible verse to substantiate their belief. And yet these people for the most part appear to be intelligent and fairly well educated. Truly amazing.

Couldn't it be a bit more restrained? What's wrong with a nice pot of tea?

After hearing Trump's speech at the UN, I think there's a very reliable possibility of us all being raptured on the 23rd.

I would suspect that they would feel about the same.

Lots of tingling with your eyes crossed!

No kidding!

I sent an email to my boss asking whether the end of the world will affect my October vacation days. She said it'll probably be okay...
