Thursday Cheezburger – Apocalypse Now?

Apparently the Rapture is supposed to be on this weekend. Some are saying Saturday but I’m not sure if that is Saturday US time which would be Sundayish for us? Anyway I’m going to call my Mum on Friday night just to make sure, see if she wants me to look after her dog and chooks. I don’t think pets are included? Anyway, here’s hoping that it’s not actually the zombie apocalypse because I was planning on taking my kids to the circus this Sunday and zombies would kinda ruin the atmosphere.

  1. Good Heavens! I’ve reached the end of the world!

    Bob the Builder is sick. I’m Daisy the Destroyer.

  2. Wait…the rapture’s coming? THIS weekend? Aw man. I need at least a month for confession and penitence. (Okay so probably more like a year)
    /removes tongue from cheek.

  3. PS. I love Daisy the Destroyer. Kitty looks mean. (Must be a relative of Footrot Flats Hoarse.)

  4. It reminds me of that graffiti that used to be in the valley somewhere – “apocalypse now – avoid the rush”

  5. Some nice folks have promised to look after the pets of raptured owners: Eternal Earth-Bound Pets, USA

    You’ve committed your life to Jesus. You know you’re saved. But when the Rapture comes what’s to become of your loving pets who are left behind? Eternal Earth-Bound Pets takes that burden off your mind.
    We are a group of dedicated animal lovers, and atheists. Each
    Eternal Earth-Bound Pet representative is a confirmed atheist, and as such will still be here on Earth after you’ve received your reward. Our network of animal activists are committed to step in when you step up to Jesus.

  6. Here’s one that I saw on craigslist ages ago:

    For a small deposit of only $50, you can be assured that your pets will be well cared for from the time that you are raptured until the end of their natural life. They will get adequate amounts of food, water, and shelter as well as plenty of exercise and socialization as I would imagine there will be a lot of pets that will be abandoned by Jesus the pet hater that will need to be cared for.

  7. Some are saying Saturday but I’m not sure if that is Saturday US time which would be Sundayish for us?
    6PM Saturday, rolling round the time zones (starting at the Date Line rather than Jerusalem), so true believers in Australia will be Raptured some hours before those in America. God apparently loves Australian Christians fractionally more than American ones; I don’t particularly know why that should be, unless it’s the beer.

  8. Mmm, so maybe I should take the kids to the Saturday afternoon matinee of the circus then. Just in case all the performers get raptured and Sunday is a washout.

    Bring me a tricycle. I must get to the circus.

  9. To be honest, I’ve looked at the calculations which are being used to determine the date of the apocalypse this weekend, and they’re based on flawed logic – the major flaw being one surrounding the purported birth of Christ.
    See, there was a wee error or two mixed into the calculation dates of when the BC/AD switchover occurred back when it was first calculated (in the mediaeval period sometime after the collapse of the Roman Empire – prior to that all dates had been determined from the founding of Rome by Remus). Anyway, following some rather more substantial archaeological work, and a lot more historical cross-referencing, it turns out the date for the Birth of Christ (and hence the switch from BC to AD dating) was out by between six and nine years – or in other words, Yeshua bar Yusuf, carpenter (and Nazarene) of Judaea, was born somewhere in the region of 6 – 9 years BC.
    So if we accept every other factor in the calculations of the preacher who figured out this date for TEOTWAWKI as being absolutely accurate (except for that one minor flaw) then the Apocalypse started some time between 2002 and 2005, and we’ve all been too busy to notice it. Since, according to the believers in the Rapture, this is going to effectively be one of the first signs of the impending Apocalypse, one would have expected to see a lot of strange disappearances during that time. Again, either the calculations are incorrect, or there are a lot of people who aren’t as good at this whole Christianity thing as they think they are…
    See yez all on Monday.

  10. Oh rats. I was looking forward to sticky beaking in a lot of empty houses. Now I’ll just have to go back to work and carry on as usual. A Tony Abbott free world… oh who am I kidding…

  11. Oh will they just make up their minds…

    But if you’re not quite ready for the Rapture, there’s no need for total despair … yet. Saturday is just the beginning of the end. The final fiery ball of damnation won’t visit us until October 21.

  12. then the Apocalypse started some time between 2002 and 2005, and we’ve all been too busy to notice it.

    Well, that would explain a whole lot of things in the last few years! We’ve had the Apocalypse and we weren’t among the ‘Elect’ … which means all those folks hoping for a Rapturous Moment on Saturday are also not amongst the ‘Elect’ *evil grins*
    PS – Margaret @11, did the calculations take into account change over to the Gregorian calender in the mid 17oo’s? (It probably puts the date out even further *delights in the math*)
