Well, I am not an atheist, but I do not believe in the Rapture. So not only do I think that it's not happening this weekend, I don't think it's ever going to happen because it's not true.
It was made up by a Fundamentalist who feared the end of the world because he took every word in the bible literally. So the book of Revelations scared the crap out of him and he devised an escape clause for Christians who believed as he did.

The world will end oneday,no doubt!No one will know the hour so it's always better to keep your spritual house in order. But the predictions are pure nonsense!!

I'd go to a bar and stick my head under the beer tap. Then, I'd probably go out and swipe a really nice car and have some fun.

Funny thing is, if God were a truly benevolent God, and the rapture really did occur, many of those bible thumping preachers would be wondering where we all went.

Do youself a favor: First swipe a car and drive to a bar,Second put your head under the beer tap. This way if the rapture doesn't come you won't wind up in jail with a DUI or worse !
